REAL Wedding Trend – Bridal Jackets

Are you planning on wearing a jacket at your wedding? Denim, leather, sequins and even kimonos were worn by real brides last year and it doesn't look like the trend to customise your outfit with a cool cover-up is going away anytime soon. Scroll down for loads of inspo from REAL brides, kindly provided by our community of the world's best documentary wedding photographers.

Leather Bridal Jackets

If you’re looking for a great way to beat the chill and add an edge to your wedding outfit for photos and the evening do then a leather jacket is your best bet. You can keep your dress more classic but add a leather jacket to punk it up as the day goes on. You could even have the back of your leather jacket painted with roses and your married name. Here are a few real brides rocking the leather bride jacket look in 2019…

Denim bride jacket

Whether you go for classic stonewashed denim or a colour that compliments your theme, denim jackets add a laidback vibe that contrasts perfectly with a wedding dress. Why not sew a custom Mrs patch onto your back with your married name?

Sequinned bridal jacket

If you can’t sparkle on your wedding day then when can you?! Not only did this bride rock a silver sequinned jacket, she wore it over a blue dipped-hem dress. Very cool!

Alternative Wedding Jackets

The sky’s the limit when it comes to your wedding day cover-up, and these brides prove that jackets can be as funky as you want them to be! A kimono, suit jacket or what about a lumberjack shirt if you’re a country & western lover?
