    I love the style and feel of #2 personally!  I think the belt might be too much with the bolero, but it’s hard for me to tell, I”m such a visual person!

    Is the point of wearing the bolero, like an accessory?  Will you be wearing it all night?  If you are wearing it all night, I would have them tack it to your dress (under the arms), during your alterations.  Or, hide a hook & eye to attach the dress and bolero, otherwise, you will probably be adjusting it all night.  Also, sleeves (unless they are loose), will restrict your ability to move your arms above your shoulders.  So, if your fiance is taller than you, this can make dancing tricky.  Just some things to consider.  I would do either the bolero or the belt, but not both.  One is lace, and one is bling.  Unless you are going to tie in the two different things somehow, like with your veil or headpiece.  I think they are all pretty, but I like #2 the best.  Good luck!

    Okay, I love the belt/earrings/hairband combo. I think they really compliment each other. And I reeeaally don’t think you need a bolero. You look beautiful as is! The dress fits you super well. One thing you could try is to place the belt just under your bust. It gives the dress a whole different look.

    I agree with @angelalsmith3 that you should go bolero or belt, but I think the belt adds the extra sparkle the dress is missing whereas the bolera makes it a little more conservative (though still very pretty).

    Also remember that the dress will hang differently once it steamed… and definitely try it with a full crinoline.

    I don’t think you really need a bolero either.  I love the earrings and plans of wearing your Grandma’s pearls.  I think all of that sounds lovely and your dress is stunning.  I don’t think it needs a sash.  What I would do is get a sparkly headband or something special for your hair (aside from having a veil).
