    I voted yes but until you try the two together I dont think you will know 100%, I love the bolero though it is so pretty and so is your dress 🙂 how expensive is the bolero? Could you buy it, try it and then if you dont think it suits either sell it again or keep it and use with casual dresses in summer etc. It is beautiful though!!

    I don’t think it would work unless you find a lace bolero that has exactly the same pattern as the dress, otherwise the two patterns would compete, IMO.  I think a non lace bolero would be a better option with your beautiful lace dress, if you really want a bolero.

    @victorian1:  Could u post a pic of the back of the bolero? I’ve considered this same bolero. Do you like the quality of it? Thanks!

    I think the lace types are close enough so they’ll work just fine; particularly because the lace appliqué on your lovely dress “fades” out towards the hem, revealing yet another fabric type.

    May I ask from where did you purchase the bolero?  I’m seeking similar Alençon lace boleros for my BMs (in navy, though)

    Hi Victorian. I am planning the get the same wedding dress and perhaps the same bolero from Tulipbridal. Was wondering if you have a close up picture of the lace in the oleo and the lace on the dress. I am hoping for a perfect match. otherwise, would go for tulle straps. Thanks!
