@Starlitglory:  So I guess it depends on your church for that rule to really apply. I also had an Allure strapless satin gown and I got married in church with it strapless (because I knew it’d be hot up there).  But later, I did put on a lace bolero (who say’s lace and satin don’t mix).  I got a ton of compliments on the lace bolero with my dress.  Also, for outside pictures, it was cold, I wore an angora sweater.  But if you really don’t want a lace bolero, there are satin bolero options.

I have no issue with mixing satin and lace, but I think it would be too much with your particular dress.  I think a satin bolero would be nice, but that won’t cover your chest.  If you’re in the southern hemisphere (i.e., it will be cold duirng your wedding), I think a faux fur capelet would look nice, and that would cover your shoulders and chest.  For warm weather…maybe an organza capelet?

I do not have an issue with lace and satin but your lovely gown is a bit too sparkly for lace.  Here are a couple of ideas. There are satin boleros. Check with your consultant and consider a bridesmaids bolero. Almost all brands carry them in white and ivory. Or get a bolero which matches your fiance’s tie and use a second color for bridesmaids and groomsmen. Just a thought. Did I mention that your dress is gorgeous?
