No bride wants to cover up her wedding dress, but even a height-of- summer wedding in the UK runs the risk of getting a little bit chilly. What brides need is a super stylish way to warm those barely-covered lace shoulders and enhance their wedding dress.


Luckily, the latest trend for leather bridal jackets does just that. The mix of casual rock 'n' roll leather with a classic white gown creates a stylish look that works perfectly for a relaxed summer wedding (and looks amazing in those informal Instagram pics too).

Personalised leather bridal jackets are seeing a huge surge in popularity with lots of off-beat brides opting to add their new married name to a leather jacket with gorgeous hand-painted calligraphy.

Not loving the black and white contrast? Pale pastel or white leather jackets offer a more classic look with the same attitude.
