Do you already have a dress, but just need the final accessory? Formal jackets and wraps may also be purchased separately, but please remember to allow twelve weeks for your jacket, bolero, wrap or shawl to arrive if you are ordering a specific size or color. Formal jackets are available to order in many different fabrics and cuts, so be sure to check with your Christine’s Bridal consultant to determine which look would go best with your formal dress if you have any questions. Our consultants will also be able to assist you in determining the right size jacket, as it may differ from your dress size. The proper fit of a formal jacket is based on bust measurements, and the circumference of the upper arm. There is nothing worse than wearing a jacket that it too tight, so please make sure to request a free fitting at the time of sale.
All formal jackets and boleros may also be ordered in white or ivory. These are popular colors with our brides and bridesmaids, and are also a great option for Order of The Eastern Star members, Rainbow Girls and many other fraternal organizations. In addition, formal jackets may be worn with graduation dresses, and of course, to make a wedding dress temple ready or Mormon or LDS appropriate. Please make sure to check with your organization, church or temple for specific guidelines. Jackets, shawls, wraps and boleros are also increasingly popular with our Mother’s Dresses. If you are a mother of the bride, or mother of the groom, and are looking for a mother’s dress with a jacket or coat, then look no further!
