Yet another post about what to wear with my lace dress! I am wearing DB YP3344.
I recently purchased this bolero from Etsy, and assuming the color of the bolero matches my dress, I’ll be wearing this along with the dress (I’m not crazy about strapless).
After spending too much time on Weddingbee, Pinterest, and Etsy, now I’m debating a mantilla veil as well, possibly this one, also from Etsy.
So I’m just wondering what all you other bees think? Should I ditch the mantilla and just go with a simple veil and the bolero? Should I ditch the bolero and go with the mantilla? Should I wear both? Is it okay to wear that much lace at one time?

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!

@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.

Thanks everyone for your opinions, they’re much needed!
@2013septemberbride: My dress fitting is next weekend, so I will be sure to do that!
@Weetzie: Thank you so much!
@lilchicana: I would love to see pictures from your wedding, if you wouldn’t mind posting! It’s hard to imagine what these things will look like together until you actually see them next to each other.
@OnceUponATime: Or in my case, if you have to ask, you might be horrible at dressing yourself :p

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!
