    I adore your dress!

    Love the veil as well.

    Not so sure the bolero will go, though…would have to see it on you to tell for sure.

    @Mokara:  Agree with previous poster, I would have to see the bolero on with the dress to be able to tell if it matches or not.

    Maybe you can find one pre-owned?  Or, go to the bridal shop and ask to try one on with your gown/similar gown?  It’s worth a shot…

    You might even find someone on the Bee selling one!

    @Mokara:  I would definitly try going into a david’s bridal. I believe they have boleros.. but you might do some research on that!

    just wanted to first say that your dress is stunning! if i didn’t have a dress already, i would’ve asked you who designs it.  

    in terms of the bolero, i wouldn’t do a lace one and i don’t think this one would match well. have you thought of chiffon? i think it’d counter balance the dress better. the lace bolero seems like it will take the attention away from the beautiful bodice of the dress as well as the lovely, delicate flow in the skirt. 

     

    Something like these:

    @Mokara: Pretty dress! The veil will go but not sure about the fabric of the bolero. A less heavy lace I think would be better.

    The dress is gorgeous and the veil will definitely work with it but I’m not so crazy about the bolero. The shape is nice but the lace seems a little too heavy. Try to find something with a more delicate lace that matches the bodic of your dress, or maybe go for a chiffon bolero to match the skirt.

    I think unless it’s an exact match to the bodice, it really won’t look good together. Something sheer would be better, IMO.

    @ItWasntMe:  Definitely agree with you as well as the previous posters! Will probably be your best bet OP 🙂
