I personally would not cover up the beautiful Fabi dress, I think it’s such a perfect dress!  However, it’s all about what you’re comfortable with.  If you want a cover up, that’s completely understandable and I think the one you choose is stunning.  I think it would compliment the dress very beautifully and be a bit different than the traditional bolero.  I love it!

If you’re required to cover it for the ceremony, I’d go with a more traditional bolero, since you’d probably have to have your shoulders covered. If you don’t need it, I’d leave the dress as it is – it’s beautiful.

If you’re going with the black sash, I would say the dress needs a simpler bolero, but if not, I say go for it!

I just did a quick search and this site has some great bolero option you may want to check out – http://www.tulipbridal.com/Bridal-Lace-Bolero-Jacket_c_8.html

Since the Fabi has ruching on the bust, I think the Aire bolero might not look right (although I’ve always thought they make the most gorgeous lace tops!!)

Maybe something like this would be pretty?

You could also simply have some cap sleeves made, like a mini-bolero. It was one of the options that I considered with a dress I that I in the end didn’t pick. The bridal salon had several varieties that I tried on.

I know the last post on this was 2 months ago but I’m looking to do something really similar…I love this look! It’s so pretty & different from a regular bolero. I’ve seen some nice ones on Etsy too… I really liked one (if you search ‘kiss me in bariloche’ it will show up’) that looks similar to the one you posted & is 87$. I also really like the look of Pronovias Iman with the lace jacket. Any updates on what you decided to do? 🙂
