Real Wedding Inspiration: Bridesmaid Pashmina Shawls

Bridesmaid pashmina shawls are the ideal gift and wedding accessory for bridesmaids, mother-in-law and mother of the bride. The elegant pashmina shawls are extremely versatile and easy to wear so your bridesmaids will be able to use them even after the ceremony is over.

Some of our wonderful customers were kind enough to send us their wedding day pictures and today we’re sharing them with you so you can find some real wedding inspiration for your bridesmaids’ gifts. Plus, in case you are having trouble picking out a pashmina shawl to match your bridesmaids’ dress, these photos might help you with the matching process!

The pashminas were the perfect gift! We got the Mouse Gray color and they went perfectly with the dresses and I know they have all used them since as well. – A. Strauss (Denver, CA)

* The Mousse Gray Pashmina Shawl is currently unavailable, but we suggest the lovely Green Gray Pashmina Shawl instead.

I got married in Key West in January. It was barely 60 degrees the day of our wedding, so the pashminas were an absolute lifesaver! The girls wore them all night. They also added a beautiful pop of color to our party. – W. Johnson

If you’re opting for metallics when it comes to your bridesmaids’ dresses, accessorize them with a shawl in a rich, vibrant color. We recommend the Deep Burgundy Pashmina Shawl, the Bubblegum Pashmina Shawl or the Cranberry Pashmina Shawl

These shawls will add a much needed pop of color to any dress and will keep your bridesmaids warm in case the weather gets chilly!

The pashminas were perfectly priced and absolutely gorgeous. My bridesmaid dresses were black, and the pashminas added the perfect pop of color. They also helped keep my bridesmaids keep warm on a cooler night. One of my bridesmaids (who has been in many weddings) told me that the pashmina was the best bridesmaid gift she had ever received! – E. Leman (Naperville, IL)

Baby blue is one of the loveliest pashmina colors and will beautifully compliment your bridesmaids’ dresses.

I ordered my bridesmaids the coral pashminas from La Purse as a gift for being in our wedding. We got married on a horse farm in Kentucky in October. I chose traditional fall colors for the flowers and since the bridesmaids were wearing chocolate brown I thought coral would be the perfect accent color. The pashminas were great especially since there was a little chill in the air that day. The quality of the pashminas were wonderful and I received my shipment in a very timely manner. Thank you so much! – R. Blair, CA (Lexington, KY)

A coral pashmina will look fabulous matched against a chocolate brown bridesmaid dress as the ones pictured above.

The pashmina is one of the most versatile fashion accessories for women. The ways it can be worn and used are equally numerous and amazing! From a fabulous fashion accessory to a nursing blanket, the pashmina covers not only your ever-day fashion needs but also some of the basic needs of a new mommy.

First, we present you with a video tutorial on how to wear the pashmina shawl. You’ll discover new stylish ways to tie your pashmina shawls or scarves. Enjoy!

Second, the pashmina shawl is the perfect alternative for airplane blankets. During a long flight it is mandatory that you get your rest and we all know that airplane blankets aren’t the softest, most comfortable in the world. Instead of enduring the discomfort of an airplane blanket, why not pack up you own cashmere pashmina and wrap yourself in softness every time you feel the need to take a quick nap! The pashmina shawl is easy to carry around as you can either wear it to achieve that stylish airport look or simply pack it in your bag as it won’t take up any of the space.

Third, the pashmina shawls make wonderful nursing blankets.

And the versatility and functionality of the pashmina shawls doesn’t stop here. Another great way to use the pashmina shawl is as a baby carry-on. We present you with a great video tutorial on how to create your own baby carry-on. The video is in Polish, but the images are self-explanatory so we are sure new moms will find it extremely helpful. Enjoy!

The Cashmere Pashmina Shawl is the perfect choice in fashion accessories and the perfect gift for any occasion. Made from a blend of 70% finest cashmere and 30% luxurious silk, our beautifully colored cashmere pashmina shawls are not only the best quality you can get on the market but they also offer an incredibly soft feel and exceptional look. Available in a rainbow of more than 90 amazing colors, the elegant cashmere and silk pashmina shawls will add the perfect final touch to any outfit, whether it is during the day, as an evening shawl or as a soft nursing blanket!
