Are you looking for a cover-up for your colder weather wedding without sacrificing style? Babies, I've got you covered: check out Etsy Seller Chrisst's amazing selection of boleros, shrugs, and collars. These styles work for vintage, Steampunk, goth, rocker, or fantasy styles, and quite possibly anything in between. Any of these pieces can really add some KAPOW to your wedding outfit, and you can wear them again and again with other outfits (how about dressing up your sexytimes? Lingerie + bolero = major unf). Let's get inspired by the pretty, shall we?


These lilac lace and tulle boleros would make a great vintage and colourful addition to your outfit, whether you're going all vintage or you just want a touch. Check out a similar option in pink. I'm picturing this as the piece that takes a simple dress, skirt, or pants-and-top outfit to the next level of gorgeous for your wedding, and then any other time you wanna get fancy.


Velvet, long-sleeve, on-point style for your Steampunk wedding in chillier weather. Wear it at your wedding, then incorporate it into your cosplay! And check out even more options, like this riding jacket.


Elegoths, rejoice in these kick-awesome vests (also available in lilac for you Pastel Goths). If you're more TradGoth, try this on for size. Or are you looking for more spikes and chains? Maybe latex?


Tulle and fleecy shrugs

Tulle and fleecy shrugs

If your style is leaning more toward a fairytale dream, I bet I got your attention with that tulle prettiness in white. If you're thinking less fairy and more dragon, the fleece bolero on the right makes me think of Middle Earth's Fall/Winter Runway line.

Rocker or Punk

If like me you can't be parted from your leather (or leather-look) jacket, this might be the perfect substitution if you want to dress it up for your wedding day. But I'm so in love with this jacket that it might become a replacement for my everyday jacket altogether. Or what about this for an '80s vibe with shoulders that could put an eye out?

This is just scratching the surface of all the deliciously beautiful designs in this Etsy shop. Interested in crinolines or skirts? The whole dress? What about lingerie? Menswear and unisex pieces? And how about the most elegoth veil I've ever seen?
