Choosing the Right Cape Wedding Dress
Due to their ever-evolving and versatile nature, there are a plethora of ways to incorporate a cape into your bridal style! Most often paired with a fitted silhouette, a cape adds a full and ethereal component to the look. Capes pair exceptionally with fitted silhouettes featuring an open back as the accessory accentuates the beauty of the backless style. However, a cape can ultimately be paired with any and all silhouettes! Most notably, the type of fabric and length of the cape chosen will influence the level of formality, drama, as well as the overall aesthetic.
From caplets and mid-length capes to ones with seemingly infinite trains, there are a wide variety of cape styles. Similarly, materials such as tulle, organza, and chiffon will create an ethereal and delicate aesthetic while more structured fabrics like crepe will exude an undoubtedly regal vision. Be mindful of the fact that a cape can be created or added to a gown that was not originally designed with one. We recommend consulting with your personal bridal style to explore the best cape options for you!
