    I vote just the mantilla. I always tell my students, “If you have to ask, then you probably already know the answer!”

    If it’s too much, I would ditch the bolero, but I can’t be certain; I would have to see a pic of the three toghether, so if you ever take one post it! Wink

    @mvg120:  I think that veil will look stunning with your dress – a perfect match! The bolero would be overkill IMO. Your shoulders look great in the dress and you totally don’t need it.

    i wore a lace dress, a lace bolero (for my ceremony only), and i wore a mantilla veil. i don’t think it’ll be too much. just keep the lace on the mantilla on the thinner side. i wouldn’t go any thicker than the one in the pic you posted.

    I’m totally of the opinion that you can’t have too much lace. I think they’re all fine.

    I’m a lace fanatic so I say all of the above!

    @mvg120:  That’s a total possibility as well. I’m no fashionista myself. lol. I really think you’re fine either way so long as the lace matches 🙂

    I think the dress is absolutely beautiful.

    @mvg120: I think it’s all too much lace, since you have an all-over lace gown (esp. the bolero and veil togther). I think a raw-edge veil would compliment your dress better, but the mantilla could work (esp. since it matches the dress hem). 

    Adding the bolero is just way too much lace for my taste.

    I really like the bolero!  But the veil is pretty too….oooh, too hard to choose…

    I voted for the bolero in the end!

    The texture of lace is so amazing, I think going all out would be so lovely. Especially for your wedding – the perfect occasion for lace!
