    I would wear it just during the reception.  The dress is lovely on its own!

    I actually thought the opposite, though there wasn’t an option for it.  What if you wore it just for the ceremony, then not wear at the reception?  Only because I’m sure you will get pretty hot in there from all the people and all the dancing.

    I am planning on wearing mine during the ceremony and I’m going to remove it during the reception.  I’ll also wear mine during some of the pictures and not during some of the others.

    I like both ways, so I voted for option with two looks!

    I would wear it during the ceremony, and then you could see how you feel at the reception. You might get hot dancing and mingling and you might want to take it off. I don’t think you have to make up your mind beforehand though, and the dress looks great with or without it.

    First of all I love your dress you’re going to make a beautiful bride on your wedding day congrats! That’s a cute bolero jacket as well.

    I think that the bolero looks flattering on your dress. What is the exact reason you chose to wear a bolero? Was it to cover your arms or for in case it gets cold, because your wedding is in June so its going to be a warm day and night I bet.

    I’m wearing a bolero too. My aunt is going to make it all beautiful and since we are getting married inside a church I will wear it to church and if it doesn’t feel too hot I’m going to wear it to the reception as well.

    Anyway I voted both but at least wear it to the ceremony… 

    Good luck and keep us posted on what you decide…

    I like it with the bolero and voted to wear it for both (though take it off if you get too hot!).  I might need to see it with the sash/broach to know for sure though!

    I agree with wendy and miss cheeky – wear it during the ceremony and then off for the reception! Its a beautiful dress with and without, but I think I like it better for ceremony only! I was surprised there wasn’t an option for it!

    isn’t your ceremony orthodox? if it is you would have to have your shoulders at least covered, if not your elbows depending on your officiant.

    I looooove the bolero and would not want to take it off for either part.  If your fiance wants you to go sleeveless, though, I might appease him by taking it off for the reception.  If you’re dancing you might be more comfortable, anyway.

    Your dress is great, btw!

    This might not mean anything because it was just the photos’ timing, but you look happier and more confident in the first two pictures.

    And anyway, sheer sleeves are elegant, and no one would think they would look silly in July. I think it’s a look that is very timeless, and I bet people of all generations in attendance would think so.
