staying warm

With an impending blizzard on the eve of this post, I clearly had to admit that wearing warm boots is not always enough to stay warm on a typical Michigan winter day.

For your winter wedding day of course, you only need a little something to dash in-between venues, but why not go all out?  Why settle for that winter coat you wore last year.. or the ski jacket you bought to match your Vokls?  If you don’t have a fur suitable for your dress, and an aunt or friend can not lend something old or something borrowed, consider renting one for the weekend.

Right in western Michigan there are a few places that offer such grand options for the winter bride.  Check out September Bride downtown Holland for their selection of faux furs available for renting.  Craig’s list is a good resource too.   I found this and this just today for sale.

There is of course David Nolten furs on River Avenue and don’t forget about the Kerstmarkt at the Civic Center – there is a great local furrier that keeps a booth there year after year with many gorgeous accessories for a winter bride.. or anyone on your Christmas shopping list.
