I went for my first fitting this weekend. When I met my dress I squealed like a little kid on Christmas morning! So exciting. AnywatAs I was standing there having them pin up my hem I noticed a bolero hanging with some other assessories close by. Knowing that I now need one for our ceremony (Greek Orthodox- very strict on covering those shoulders), I asked to try it on. It matched my lace perfectly, but was approx a large (I’d need a small) and ran $300. I just can’t justify that for 1 hour

Oops. I guess when you upload a photo it posts your entry. Anyway I was wondering if anyone has a good recommendation on a more modestly priced lace bolero, which would match this dress. Thanks ladies!

Def try out some of the designers on Etsy. I think you can get something closer to the $150 and under range over there.
Best of luck – your dress is amazing!

I second Etsy. I got a beautiful one from maryandangelika, but it’s silk rather than lace. There are lots of great designers on Etsy.

I’m a little worried about the lace matching up. Do you think this is a big deal?

I am having the same bolero trouble as you – it seems unreasonably expensive, yet, the lace on the cheaper ones would not match my dress, which has appliqued alencon lace decorations on it. So far have not made a decision, but I am hoping there will be a sale at a shop at some point. I think it’s quite important to at least match the kind of lace of your dress.

I got my bolero from:
It fits perfectly and the lace perfectly matches my gown. I purchased it for way less than it would have cost me to make it or purchase it anywhere else. I paid under $25.00 for my bolero and my bolero has beaded lace.
