Wondering how to wear a pashmina for a wedding or need some style inspiration for your wedding look? Here is our guide to how to wear a pashmina as a wedding guest, bride or bridesmaid.

How To Wear a Pashmina on Your Wedding Day 

As the bride, your pashmina can complement your wedding theme. A white or ivory pashmina is a classic choice that works with a traditional bridal gown. Consider coordinating the pashmina colour with the bridal bouquet or bridesmaid flowers too – this small touch can really bring the whole look together.

Choose a pashmina that’s going to look great for the photos or that you can easily put to one side when it is photo time. You might want to avoid brooches or additional embellishments for this reason. If you do go for something to hold your pashmina in place, choose something that works with your bridal theme and overall look. 

How To Add a Pashmina into Your Bridesmaid Outfits 

A pashmina is a classic style that all of your bridesmaids will love, and be able to wear to stay warm and co-ordinated during the big day. It will be easy to take off or put on for the photos. Giving a pashmina to each of your bridesmaids can add a cohesive theme if they are going to be wearing different outfits.

You can either match the pashmina colour to the bridesmaid dresses or choose a contrasting shade that stands out. You can experiment with different drapes, wraps and accessories too, depending on whether you want everyone to wear something that reflects their own personal style or if you want everyone to match. It can even make a great gift for your bridesmaids. 

How To Wear a Pashmina as a Wedding Guest 

When attending a wedding as a guest, it’s important to choose a pashmina colour that works with your outfit. You can either match it with your dress or go for a complementary shade that adds a pop of colour to your outfit. You might want to stay safe and go neutral for a pashmina style that you can wear again and again with all sorts of different outfits.

Choose to drape your pashmina and secure it however works best for you, whether that’s a classic drape or an asymmetrical one-shoulder look. Keeping it in place is the key to staying cosy and looking put together in your pashmina. For a little more inspiration for your wedding check out our guide to the most Instagrammed wedding spots.
