35 of the Best Bridal Jackets for Winter Weddings

British weather is notoriously unpredictable, so having a suitable (and beautiful) leather, denim or sequin bridal jacket to throw over your dress in the evening is a must!

Your wedding day is all about showing off your beautiful outfit, whether it’s a wedding dress, bridal suit, skirt and top, or wedding jumpsuit. And while this will be ultimately the star of the show, sometimes having a cover-up on hand is a necessity, especially given the unpredictable British weather and evening chill. Outdoor elopements and pretty much any wedding in Northern Europe also demand clever layering, just in case the mercury drops (or the heavens open). 

But fear not; just because you’ll be covering up, doesn’t mean you can’t look just as chic. In fact, these days, your options are endless when it comes to bridal jackets. You could choose a stylish satin blazer, or what about a super cool leather number? Then there’s denim, or even something furry and cosy for winter weddings. 

There’s also the option to have your bridal jacket personalised; many designers on sites such as Etsy now make this easier than ever. A personalised bridal jacket is the ultimate keepsake from your big day. 

Whether you want to keep things to a budget and shop on the high street, or splurge on a high-end design or personalised number, we’ve selected 35 of the very best bridal jackets to invest in now.
