This is my first post! I’ve purchased the Augusta Jones Jayma, which is a fitted, all chantilly lace gown. The problem is that I fell in love with this Pronovias jacket at the beginning of my search:
My question is, do you think the thicker alencon lace will overwhelm the flat lace of the dress?
On a related note, I want a cathedral length veil, with lace trim beginning around the elbow. Should that be a flat, chantilly trim as well?
So confused. Help!
Here’s my dress!

I don’t think there’s any problem with mixing those two laces, but I think that having that lace jacket over your dress would hide the beautiful scalloped top and sleeves.

I think it’ll clash and be too much, and then you’ll lose both patterns of lace in an amorphous lace blob.
It’s like when you play jazz over jazz music: dissonance.

@MlleFabuleux: Love the P&R reference!
@09nlm: That jacket is goreous, but so is the dress. I love the sleeves on the dress, and personally I wouldn’t want to cover them up.

Oh what a goregeous dress!! I love it!
While I don’t think the lace would clash, I completely agree with FromPtoD and mvg120 that adding the jacket would hide the beautiful sleeves on your dress.
Maybe you could get a strapless white short dress for your rehersal and wear the jacket with that so you have both styles. 🙂
As far as your veil goes, I woould try to keep the lace as similar to the lace on your dress as possible, it will compliment it better that way.

No bolero. Just say no. Why would you want that crazy lace explosion on your upper body, all in disharmony? Secondly, why would you want to hide those sweet sleeves?
