EtP!! I love your photos, and thought the bolero looked stunning with your gown!

It may not have been exactly what you dreamed, but it turned out so so so well anyway!

Actually, I thought the bolero was part of your dress (they match extremely well!) and didn’t even realize until I saw your comment about it in the other thread. It looks great, and the lace really doesn’t give a ‘covered from head to toe’ look. Seriously!!!


ps- I’m glad you’re still around post-wedding; I was scared you were gone for good, hehe, even though I knew you were probably just basking in the glory of your picture perfect wedding and honeymoon. ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel so sorry for you!  I know what it’s like to be so upset over something that you can’t (really) do anything about.
I just took a (2nd!) look at your pics and I have to say – you and your groom looked absolutely gorgeous.  There isn’t one thing that, as an objective viewer, I would change.  You still look like a stunning, dare I say sexy, bride.  Maybe focus on everything that went right, especially being able to marry the man you  love, and in time the upset will subside?  I really don’t have great advice but I wanted to reassure (since most of the WeddingBee world is asleep at the moment!) that you looked gorgeous and the pictures are beautiful.

Maybe you could do a post-wedding shoot (in your dress or not) so that you can portray what you really wished for?  It’s could  be an added expense but maybe it would make you feel better?  *hugs* from Dublin!

I thought you looked exquisite in the dress and pictures. To be honest, I didn’t even notice the bolero!

Aw, I thought you looked stunning! I didn’t even notice the bolero, to be honest!! Your photos are amazing, your photographer was awesome, and you looked gorgeous! I know your disappointed and I can understand, since that was something you wanted and I’m sorry. ๐Ÿ™ But your photos really are fabulous!!

oh weird I just went back and looked again.  When I looked yesterday I didnt even notice!  The bolero is so wel made and so well fitted that it looks like part of the dress and is GORGEOUS!  I know you were going for a sexy look – you got that in teh pre ceremony photos!  The ones with the bolero look elegant and classic.  I know right now its hard to swallow, but I  truly think that in the future you’ll be happy about it.  You could always hire your photog for another photo shoot.  I am doing another one just for fun.  But truthfully, you cant take that back so try not to stress too much.  You looked gorgeous and fantastic!

I actually couldn’t tell it was a bolero at all – they look beautiful! I had to look really hard to tell it was a bolero, I just thought it was a part of your dress. I don’t think it’s distracting at all – I love them!

Yeah…I don’t remember seeing a bolero either?  It must have went so well with the gown…

I looked at your incredible, gorgeous, and amazing photos twice and totally didn’t even see a bolero! At last I realized that what I’d thought were dress straps in some photos are the bolero. It only appears in some of the photos, right? You know what? If that is your only regret about the photos — not your own beautiful appearance, or your groom’s, not the gorgeousness of the pix themselves — well, i think you had an incredibly successful and near-flawless shoot!

I think you look absolutely beautiful and the bolero was great! But honestly if it is going to bother you SO much.. maybe see if you can do a TTD session to get those sexy dress pics you want?

That jacket fits in so perfectly! I totally love it!! I understand that you’re not thrilled with having it covering up your dress, but seriously.. when I read this post, I was picturing you wearing some kind of big, ugly multicolored puffy bolero – not this delicate little one! I think it’s classic and gorgeous, for what it’s worth. ๐Ÿ™‚

Girl what are you talking about?  You look totally sexy!  And the others are right, the bolero is barely noticeable and looks like it’s part of the dress!
