The great thing about scarves is that they can be incorporated into any look. From adding colour and additional style to a maxi dress to injecting some life in to a smart suit, you can always rely on a scarf to glamorise an outfit. At a wedding, scarves can be used to set a theme and bring a bespoke touch to traditional attire. If you are thinking about making scarves a stand-out feature at your wedding, take a look at the following ten wedding scarf looks.
1- The Vintage Look
Vintage weddings in which the bride looks like a 1950s movie star are all the rage these days. Scarves are synonymous with vintage glamour, so why not integrate them into your wedding? Augment your stunning lace, 50s dress with a retro silk scarf and by doing so you’ll create a unique and bespoke vintage style.
2- Scarves to Match Decor
Décor that spills into the attire of the bride and groom, bridesmaids or even the guests always goes down well at a wedding. Scarves could be the perfect accessory to bridge the gap between wedding décor and garb. For example, if the décor at your wedding is dominated by snazzy shades of purple, unite the furnishings with the guests by asking them to wear an eye-catching purple scarf.
3- Classic Bridesmaids’ Shawls
If there is one group at a wedding that can afford to be flamboyant, it’s the bridesmaids. Adorning your bridesmaids in elegant bridal shawls will create a classy and chic look, not to mention help keep the chill off their shoulders.
4- Feather Scarves for Flamboyancy & Fun
If you’re intent on not going down the ‘conventional’ route at your wedding and want to add some burlesque fun, feather scarves adorned round the neck of the bride, bridesmaid and even the guests will add some playful flamboyance to your wedding.
5- An Animal Print Wedding Theme
There is something both sexy and sophisticated about animal print. If you and your soon-to-be-husband have a mutual fondness for animal print and are planning an animal print theme at your wedding, compliment the leopard print wedding cake by wearing a leopard print scarf.
6- Beautiful Bridal Hijabs
A hijab crafts an aura of mystery and intrigue. Why leave the enigma of hijabs at home on your wedding day? Bridal hijabs are simply stunning and can be adorned in jewels, turning the bride into a true princess on her wedding day.
7- Cream Pashminas
Whether it’s the bridesmaid dresses or the bridal gown, cream goes hand in hand with a wedding. Why confine the cream theme to the dresses? Really go to town with the beauty of cream by wearing an cream pashmina.
8- The Luxury Look
From a luxury wedding venue to lavish flower bouquets embellished on the walls, if your forthcoming wedding is designed to exude the lavishness of a royal wedding complement your bridal dress with a stunning silk pashmina scarf. A colourful pashmina will inject some stylish vibrancy to a traditional dress of white, cream, ivory or pale pink.
9- A Prayer Shawl
Who said the groom couldn’t accentuate his style by wearing a scarf of some form on his wedding day? Prayer shawls can make a man look effortlessly cool and stylish at a wedding. Take a look at the wedding ceremony of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky. The couple looked fantastic, Chelsea wearing a Vera Wang strapless dress and Marc wearing a prayer shawl and Jewish yarmulke .
10- Matching Bridesmaids with Bride
Wedding attire that equates the bridesmaids with the brides is always a nice touch. Scarves can make a subtle connection between bride and bridesmaids. Opt for a colour that will suit and enhance the bridal gown and the bridesmaids dresses. For example, a plain light yellow pashmina would make a stylish addition to a white wedding gown as well as complementing darker bridesmaids dresses.
