    I do love the delicateness of the custom made piece, but I don’t know if it would still look as soft with the harsh line of the belted waist. I think what makes it so soft and elegant is the simplicity of that dress…My vote is for the first bolero.

    I think you should add the bolero from the picture. It is more closely fitted to the body than the short sleeve bolero which I prefer and I think would actually blend better with your dress. You are ordering matching fabric, so matching the fabric isn’t the issue. It will look lovely once you are all done up with your veil on and then are you taking it off for the reception? Best of both world.

     I feel like the bolero is the easier option, but I love the lace sleeves!  They look complete with the dress, rather than a ‘oh crap, I need to cover up’ addition.

    @FutureMrsRabo:  I think that jacket will be gorgeous with your dress!  It ends at sort of an empire waist, I’m guessing – which shouldn’t interfere with your blingy belt.

    I think the bolero looks great with your dress. I’m going to have to do the same thing with my dress because my church is strict as well, but I plan on taking off the bolero/jacket for the reception. Good luck with your decision!

    I like the pronovias top, I am unsure how it will look with the belt tho. I say go safe and purchase something you can try on to buy. I would have to waste the money and end up not liking it.

    Generally I like hte look of the second lace option as it’s close to what I had, but I’m not a fan of it tucked into the top of the dress. I prefer it to be overtop of the bodice… however with your dress that won’t really work b/c of the belt (unless the belt can go overtop of the lace overlay) and the dropped waist. However if you are ok with the tucked in the top look, then go for it!

    That’s so annoying that some churches are strict and others are not. My Catholic church is letting me wear a strapless dress. Maybe it depends on area too?

    I would just go with the bolero you are wearing in the first pic and get it in the same colour as your dress.
