I’m not a fan of the look either. I feel like it’s a mismatch. The top looks like you should have a denim miniskirt and a pair of cowboy boots on with it. I find it really jarring together. I’d keep looking.

Gorgeous- the whole thing!  I suggest buying another top- the exact same one and taking both to a seamstress (so she can use the extra top as matching lace fabric) and just add a little to the stomach area.  

The sleeves make it more modest anyway.  I think you should go for it!

Have you looked at BHLDN? They have a lot of toppers.

maudlinpen:  I think it’s a crop top bordering on tube top. You look great, but I don’t know if it’s what you’re going for as a bride. I think it would be really cute for your honeymoon paired with a bright colored high-waisted a-line or pencil skirt though!

BHDLN has some great bridal separates, I think either of these would pair well with your stunning skirt:

Well I’m  with pretty much everyone else when  I say no to that  top, very teenage and skimpy looking.   Also, far  too bright a white for that skirt.

Pink princess’s suggestion above is is lovely !

You look hot, but I personally wouldnt do it for my wedding ceremony.  How expensive is the top?  Maybe secretly purchase it for a honeymoon surprise?

I agree the top doesn’t really go with the bottom you have. I love the cropped top wedding look but what if you did top like PP showed above (love the first intricate one) and have a seamstress crop it to an ideal length? 

I think it’s more wedding like when you only get a peek of stomach and more prom like when so much skin is showing. Love your skirt, so gorgeous!!! Good luck! I searched for a bolero forever so I feel your pain! 

Love the left pic below (amount of skin showing) compared to the one on the right.

Your body is smokin. I think you look great buuuut the top is too white for me with that skirt and it does show a little too much skin.

I second BHDLN, maybe something in an ivory?

I third (fourth?) BHLDN. You could get something with a corset style to give him the lingerie feel he likes: 

You could maybe switch to the crop top for the reception – though like the others I’m not sure if it actually goes with the skirt anyway. I’d probably choose a different skirt. But then that would be getting out of hand.

ETA: I think this BHLDN top would work well with the skirt. If you’ve seen the Hayley Paige Dori, the Dori skirt is basically identical to yours and its top is quite similar to this:

maudlinpen:  I think the top is too white and a bit short. Im in love with the skirt though. May I ask where you purchased it ?
