Hi!! I am a lifelong LDS member (born & raised), but I am not having a temple wedding or church reception. I also opted for a strapless gown and a bolero on the side.
I think it will be okay for you to have some pictures without the bolero…
Just maybe on an off-site location 🙂
Congrats on your beautiful day and “Families can be together forever!”

I am just more comfortable in the strapless gown look, when I put my dress on I knew it was the one (the very first dress I tried on) Everything about it was absolutely perfect and I started getting angry about having to cover it up with a bolero, yes there are many different styles to choose from and the funny thing is that my dress even comes with one. But I just didnt want to cover up.
Now I’m getting the whole concept, its not just about modesty but by entering into the Temple and being sealed to my husband, then staying on the Temple grounds and taking my jacket off and baring shoulders wouldnt be the right thing to do… I think I have been overthinking it and Im sure will be so overwhelmed with joy that I most likely wont even think about having my shoulders covered.
PS The photographer is a member of my church so I dont think he would be like “wanna do some pictures without the jacket?” Lol and being late January and barely 100 lbs I may be a little too chilly to even think about taking that bolero off! All factors to consider, I am feeling a lot better about it. Thanks Ladies for all the help! I do appreciate all of the advice an its helped me a lot!

I know this is very late and you’re already married by now… but..
if you get married in the temple you will have your garments, meaning you will be wearing basically a tshirt underneath your dress. It is really really unlikely that you will just take off the garments for a few pictures? even if its covered with a bolero. Plus, most brides wear the 1 piece garments.. so it just doesn’t seem likely.
How did it all work out?
