Your wedding day is all about showing off your beautiful outfit, and while this will be ultimately the star of the show, sometimes having a bridal jacket 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 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 wedding 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 a personalised bridal jacket; many designers on sites such as Etsy now make this easier than ever. A customised 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 26 of the very best bridal jackets to invest in now.

How Much Do Bridal Jackets Cost?
The price of a bridal jacket will vary depending on a number of factors. A personalised wedding jacket will cost a little more as you will be receiving a completely customised piece that is unique to you. Take a look at the options above and you'll see why we think it is totally worth the investment!
You can also buy a bridal jacket from the high street with prices starting at around £50, however this will increase for a cover-up with heavy embellishments or material such as faux fur and feathers.
