Ideally I’m looking for a 3/4 sleeve bolero made out of a breathable fabric (I tend to overheat) that will coordinate well with my dress.
Originally I was thinking about this but I worry there’s too much going on and it won’t really work…
I can’t spend a fortune. I’m hoping to be able to score the bolero for under $50.
What do you think of this bolero with my dress? Will it be too much? What bolero would you suggest for me?

The other issue with this bolero is color. While they say it comes in white or ivory, the “ivory” looks more like gold. The site suggests ordering the white color for lighter ivory dresses but I’d be pretty bummed if I ordered it and it didn’t match.

The lace bolero is very pretty, and it looks like there is some lace on the bottom of your dress, so I don’t think it would be too much. The color concern would be more of a worry. Can you get some extra lace or dress material from Alfred Angelo and have a bolero made? That would ensure the color match. I suppose the other way to go would be to go with a bolero in your wedding colors.
Edit: what about this one?

Do you have a ‘wedding warehouse’ type store around you? I vote with shamelessly walking in with your dress in hand and color matching a bolero! I HATE buying stuff online I need to color match anything. It’s too stressful!
