    Ehhhh. The first one is okay, but I would much prefer it without the belled sleeves.

    I don’t think white lace really matches your dress well. I would look for one that is either sheer ivory/your dress color or with silver embellishment to go with your dress. Or a soft white feather one could look glam if that is something you like. Though maybe just for outdoor pics.

    @Mrs Canuck:  Your dress is already so absolutely stunning that since you’re not being required to wear it, I honestly would opt out. There’s so much detail on the gown that simple accessories such as a basic pearl necklace and earrings, a raw edge (or satin trim) veil, and no bolero are the way to go. In my opinion. 🙂

    Get one without lace.  There is no lace on your dress and having it on the bolero might look puzzle pieced together.

    Unless you need coverage for a church ceremony or something, I wouldn’t wear a bolero–your dress is stunning enough as-is!

    I feel like the bell sleeves (and all the additional lace) would be a lot going on with your dress. If you don’t feel super attached to the idea of a bolero I’d skip it all together. your dress is beautiful as is!

    I really wouldn’t bother, I think you dress is beautiful without a bolero.

    I’m getting married in March, too, but I’m not really doing a “traditional” bride thing… thinking about picking up a teal sweater (or using one I already own) to keep me warm, just in case. Alternate plan is stealing FI’s tuxedo jacket. Our ceremony and reception is at the same site, as well, so we’ll be inside too… I’m just always cold 🙂

    In any case, I’m sorry to say I don’t like any of these boleros.
    I think the bell sleeves and lace on all of them clash with your dress. I like your dress just as it is! It’s lovely without the sleeves!
    Are you wearing a veil? I think if you want something different for your ceremony, the veil can come off after (and many brides do remove it). Other than that, I wouldn’t worry too much about the look – you’ll look different after the ceremony simply because you’re married!! 😀

    Honestly I think all of these will be too much & take away from your dress. I would go for removable cap sleeves before I’d do a bolero, but I really don’t think you need anything. It’s a gorgeous gown, if you have too much going on it’s not going to look as elegant! You could always just get a wrap too if you wanted something for outdoor pics.

    @Mrs Canuck:  Uhhh I think any of these would take away from your dress. Lace doesn’t really work, if you really want to do it I’d go with a plain silk or something

    They all look too matronly.
