What is a Bridal Cape?

Capes are a fabulous alternative to a veil as they are slightly more unusual in the bridal world. They can provide a little bit of cover for modesty in church weddings and can help transform your outfit from day to night.

If you are after an alternative to a veil then a full tulle cape like our Imogen is the best option. This cape comes in fingertip, ballet, floor, church and cathedral and with a high or low neckline so you can choose which best compliments your dress. To provide some cover in a church you could go for a lace wrap like Charis which can also be worn for your getting ready shots as an alternative to a dressing gown. To instantly turn your wedding dress into an evening gown try one of our hand beaded capelets like Edwina or Jolie.
