Wedding shawl help...

So, I want to knit a wedding shawl. The fabric of my dress (hopefully) will be this:



















I want to knit a wrap/shawl to go with it. My options so far are these:

Cloisters Wrap
Tudor Wrap
Tolovana Shawl

What do you think? What yarn should I use? Hopefully it'll be a May wedding and I'd like to splash out a little on the yarn. What colour would you choose?

Thanks, Knitters! x

I like the Tolovana shawl best. And I think I'd pick a blue similar to the one in the fabric. And for yarn...mhm difficult I'd look for a place where you can have the yarn dyed in the perfect colour. I personally really like The Unique Sheep. They have a silk yarn in fingering weight...well it is supposed to be a very special shawl right :)

Congratulations on your engagement, how lovely! The Tolovana shawl is beautiful, and most "wedding-y" if you know what I mean. I also agree with cardingstories - pick up the blue from the dress and use that. The other alternative would be the pink, but I think that that would be a bit too overpowering. And definitely silk lace weight. You'll want to pass this on to your grandchildren...

I like Tudor the best and would make it in red (in case red generally suits you) or black. Of course black is not a typical colour for a bride, but as you are going to have a colourful dress anyway...
