I bought my dress… and am having slight regret (only because I stupidly keep watching all those bridal shows).
What I really like is a lace illusion top similar to this:
All of the boleros I see are more of a jacket style and don’t come across the chest (which is what I’d prefer).
For reference this is my dress – therefore, one made more of tulle (i.e. more sheer) and less allover lace is preferable.

@kaleigh0811: I’m in your same position. I really want one as well but my dress already has lace and a bunch of jewels and pearls in the boob area and I don’t think it will look good..

have you tried tulipbridal.com?
they have some really pretty boleros in different styles. i almost bought one from them, but ended up finding one at the shop where i bought my dress. i did get my veil from them tho 🙂

OMG I am literally obsessed with the same thing!! I’ve been researching for two solid days for something exactly like the first picture you posted. I have a strapless with a sweartheart neckline and I LOVE it, but at night once I take off my veil I’m not sure I want to be so bare all night. I’m kind of modest!
http://www.parisbonbon.com/halfsleeve-tulle-lace-wrap-for-wedding-party-evening_p10606.html – this is probably the closest to what I’m hoping to find, but it’s on some weird Chinese wholesale site and I don’t know if I trust it. Anyone reading this familiar with it? I’ve also poured though Etsy looking for something like, and can I tell you….there are some scary looking boleros out there lol.
This shop carries some that I’m interested in. Something like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/115296028/higher-than-clouds-bridal-lace-bolero?ref=shop_home_active or maybe this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/150926429/ballade-del-vientre-ivory-bridal-lace?ref=shop_home_active but as my friend pointed out, they kinda look like doilies. I so desperately want to find something in between!!
@bbfyso: does the top part come seperately?? Is that Pergola? Because I love that and have been looking around for the seperate piece.
Long story short, @kaleigh0811: I am looking for the exact same thing!!! Let’s keep in touch – if you find something let me know! And vice versa, of course 🙂

thanks so much everyone – the one by pronovias is perfect!
I’m a little worried that it will be too much with my lace dress – but I like the idea of wearing something a bit more formal for the ceremony and then take it off for the reception.

@hdoubleyou86: yes that is pergola. The bolero is sold at pronovias it is around 300. I see that you are in Canada. In montreal at the saint hubert stores they sell it for around 200.
I wore Esther from vera wang. That has a similar vibe and I always refer brides to that model because it has the same feel and look.
