    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.

    @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?
