I’m wearing a lace bolero. I bought it at the bridal salon. It originally went with another gown, but it look perfect with the gown I was ordering, so we ordered it also.

Yes, in my opinion I think that would look nice, as long as the ivories matched.

Are you wearing a veil?  My understanding is that at least most Conservative rabbis treat a veil that covers the shoulders as sufficient.  However, YMMV.

I’d ask your rabbi – our wedding was traditional for a Conservative wedding and I still needed coverage.  My seamstress made a lovely top that went on like jacket (sort of) and zipped in the back and was attached in the dress with velcro.  At the reception, I was just able to get out of the sleeves and unvelcro it and was back to a strapless dress.

I had the same issue and my dress was chiffon – I had a “donut” made out of chiffon that I could just slip on and it covered my shoulders for the ceremony.  I had mine made at Kleinfelds but basically it is a chiffon tube, I’m sure many people could make it!
