Hello, My wedding is 6 weeks away, my dress will be here in about 2 weeks from now (hopefully sooner). I have been looking for a jacket to go with it because I don’t like my arms but are undecided about what kind to wear with it and I’m running out of time.
Please help me decide what to do, your opinion/advice is greatly appreciated!
The dress is an all-over beaded corded lace A-line gown from David’s Bridal(Style Ct2406)
Here’s a picture of the dress, and two of the possible jackets…

I like the first bolero, the long-sleeved one, just because it’s so pretty with all the lace detailing 🙂

Short sleeved bolero — I think the long and 3/4 sleeves are too heavy for a June wedding. Also, I think the simple design will look best with your lace dress; I am not a fan of mixed laces.

Lace or short-sleeved one for sure. Covered long-sleeved isn’t the best choice for June.

I like the first one the best by far– but could you bring it to someone to make it short sleeved or cap sleeved?? I think I’m gonna try to do something like that for mine.

If you can do short sleeved lace (I know, I know not an option here) I think that would be best, but either the lace or the short sleeved bolero would look pretty (a sating bolero might be warm for June though)

I voted for the short sleeved bolero b/c I am also not a fan of mismatched lace. Plus it’s June and the other two choices will be too hot I think.

I like the short sleeved one for you. I think with your dress the other two might look kind of mother-of-the-groom. I like the last one but it would be cute with a short fitted dress and the all lace one seems like overkill since your whole dress is lace – it would work better with a dress that only had some lace details.

I like the first a lot, the second one looks a little too business-like.

I like the 1st one with the lace, but only because that was the only one that lace. I personally don’t like long sleeve boleros. But my second choice would be the short sleeve bolero.

Thank you all so much for your input. I’ll start looking for a short sleeved lace jacket, and see if I can mixed the two best options.

The short sleeved satin one is my choice! I think with the all the lace, you might have a problem with it not matching properly. Plus, the sash on your dress looks satin-y, and I think a satin short sleeved bolero would really set it off! 🙂

I have the same dress and I’ve been trying to get my hands on the lace jacket! My wedding is June 6th. I ordered the jacket on March 4th (from David’s Bridal in North Attleboro, MA) and they said it would come by April 27th. Now they’re saying it “should” arrive by the end of May! Not good enough, because I need to take it to a seamstress to have the sleeves shortened!
Have you decided on one? Where were you planning on purchasing it from? Does anyone have that lace jacket and is willing to sell?
