    I think the bolero idea is cute, but I’m not sure about the fur. To me, a fur bolero is a December or January thing not a “fall” wearable. But if you love it, you make the rules!

    Personally I’d do ivory over black, but it certainly would go with your black and white wedding theme and the color is a very personal preference thing I think. You could also consider a colored bolero if you’re going to do a “pop” of color with your flowers. You could tie that in with your bolero.

    I’m not so keen on the fur, but I do think a black lace bolero would look stunning. It would be an interesting twist on the classic lace look, and give your appearance a bit of edge.

    I agree with @chrispygal: that IMO September is a bit too early for fur. I also would go for an ivory rather than a black bolero, no matter which fabric you choose. I think you will have enough black going on with your girls dresses that you don’t need it in the bolero, and ivory will keep you looking more bridal.

    faux fux is a bit too much for fall, unless its freezing in your area at that time of the year

    I personally love it!  Kate middleton wore that fuzzy cardigan over her evening dress and it was wonderful!  Go for it.  =)

    I dont know what your color scheme is (besides the black/white) but be careful you dont throw things off by adding a silver/gray sweater. Maybe get a thin dressy sweater that matches your dress. yes like Kate Middleton’s reception look. Classic. :0)

    but if you get a lace bolero, I vote for the black. I love the black with ceam or black w/ white. its different. But thats just my personality. Everyone is different.

    White House Black Market also has some great black shrugs… I found one there for my rehearsal dinner/ post wedding reception.

    In my opinion I dont want to see faux fur unless I see Winter or Snow. Just my opinion. I’d go with a different style bolero.

    Maybe you could do another type of cardigan/bolero, Chasmere? super soft and a beautiful fabric!
