I like the first as the neckline stands out more and doesn’t get lost in the lace pattern, but I also think that maybe where the lace overlaps will look a little odd (sorry!). Even though the dress would be lovely on its own, I love the idea of a sheer top because it makes it slightly different. Maybe something like the first but just without the patterened edge on the bottom?

I like the first one. The point d’esprit makes it look more youthful.

I really like the second one. It’s really romantic and goes better with your dress.

I wonder if it’d work if you could tuck the lace into the dress and therefore avoid the overlap? not sure how comfortable this would be though….

i’ve had similar issue with my dress, which is a lace a-line but the lace is thicker (alecon maybe? i’m not sure) mine has eyelash lace at the top aswell though so i decided that a lace bolero would be too much.

i’ve actually just ordered a wrapor shrug in tulle today in the hope that it’ll just cover enough for me to feel comfortable without detracting from the dress too much (sorry can’t work out how to post a link on here, my browser keeps blocking it!) not sure where you are though, i’m in the uk so they’re fairly local to me.

here’s my dress for an idea although i’m changing the belt and making the top into a slight sweetheart…

I like the second one.  The first one looks like you’re pointing in between your cleavage.

I have the second one and love it.  Seems to run a wee bit small

@lacebride82: Love the second one as it has more lace and think it goes better with the lace on your dress.

The second one is perfect! The first one is super distracting to me and doesn’t match, in my opinion.  The second one is very elegant.
