    It looks great both ways but I say wear it without the bolero for the reception. I had one for my wedding and wore it for most of the reception until it drove me crazy and then I took it off.  Your dress is beautiful btw!

    @soy:  Maybe add a poll? I think bolero for the ceremony and no bolero for the reception is best.

    Looks amazing either way!  It’s nice to know that you’ll have two equally fantastic options on your day!

    I pefer without, so I’d do bolero for the ceremony and take it off for the reception. The dress is too pretty to be covered all night!

    It’s beautiful both ways but I prefer it without the bolero. I think the bolero actually takes away from the dress some. Gorgous just like you though!

    No bolero! Your dress is very pretty on it’s own

    You’re gown is gorgeous. I had to pause in my scrolling to take it all in (I especially love that unique bust detailing). 


    I like the bolero, and it seems to match the lace at the skirt of the dress. However, it looks white and your dress looks ivory/diamond white. If this doesn’t bother you, then I say where it for the ceremony and take it off fo the reception. Plus, if you’re like me and plan to dance the night away, you’ll get hot and take it off anyway. 🙂

    I think wearing the bolero only for the ceremony is best, but it’s your day girl! Do whatchoo want! You look flawless either way!

    Ooooh I like the bolero a lot. If it were me I’d have a tough time taking it off.
