I bought a beautiful bolero from Etsy seller maryandangelika but in the past few weeks I’ve really been doubting whether or not it “goes” with my dress. So I’ve been toying with the idea of selling it.
What do you think? Please give me honest feedback!!
Excuse the fact that I have no make up on and that my dress is all wrinkly. Oh and I won’t be wearing my veil that way either.

I would wear it for part of the reception and some of the pictures. I think it’s fun, but I prefer a simpler, more classic look. The 50/50 would be a good compromise. Great color, too, and you look fabulous in your dress!

I really like it. I think it’s a lovely accompaniment to your dress. If you’re unsure though why don’t you wait until the actual wedding day and decide then? You can always sell it later.

Were you looking to wear it to the ceremony and reception, or just the reception? Is the wedding outdoors? I think it would look fun for the reception and might help keep you warm if your wedding is outdoors and goes into the evening. But for the ceremony, I prefer you without it.

I have to say that being totally honest, I’m not a fan. It’s definitely not you at all. It’s the bolero. It’s too much with the dress, I think because of the color. I would try to sell it.
If it makes you feel any better, I made two or three purchases for the wedding where afterwards I thought to myself, “what was I thinking!?” I realized this before the wedding, and was happy I did some self-editing, even if I was out a few bucks.

I bought and returned 20 pairs of shoes before I found the right ones – keep looking and see if something else strikes your fancy – you can always sell it later!

I like it- my bm had boleros on and I sort of wished I had had one too, I agree wait and see if you like it on the day and sell it after if you don’t wear it (or sell it used if you do)

IDK, I’m kind of traditional and I feel like your wedding day is the 1 day you get to dress up as the bride, so I tend to prefer you without the bolero. I think it’s pretty, but it doesn’t go with your wedding gown. You can always wear it to the rehearsal dinner with a white cocktail dress, that would be so fabulous!

I love the color, but I don’t think it looks right from the back. It covers up part of the back of the dress, so I prefer it without. Your dress is so elegant and beautiful, and I don’t think the bolero goes.

I really like the bolero on its own, but it does seem out place with all white. You might consider adding a large blue brooch offset at the waist to tie it together.

I think it’s a very pretty bolero and you should keep it – but for a different occasion. It seems to dress-down the outfit, IMO. I think because it’s such a bold color – not really for the design, etc.

I think you should keep the bolero to wear it with other dresses. I can really see it dressing up a plainer cocktail dress nicely!

I think it kind of overpowers the dress… i like the suggestion about adding a broach or something but then you really are cahnging the whole look of the dress. I’d keep it for another time.

I agree it seems to take away from the dress since its such a bold color.
