    Both pieces are gorgeous, but I feel the bolero would be noticed more than the beautiful dress.

    I say try it on, return the shawl if you don’t like it.  Sometimes I feel like shawls add weight or width, and bare arms can be more flattering.  I am a mother of bride and worried about my arms, lace is really in, but every dress that had a lace bolero, or lace jacket made me feel even bigger, I am opting for sleevless as the wedding is in California and weather will be warm for my daughters wedding in October.  The only way to really know is try it with and then without and see how you feel the best, lots of times its how you feel that matters.

    I like it. If you’re having it redone by a designer, have them keep the lace only to the sleeves area, or reduce the amount. Then it wouldn’t overwhelm the lace dress.

    I agree. I think the reason the bolero works in that picture is because the dress doesn’t have lace on it.
