I’m really self conscious about my arms and so have decided….16 days before my wedding…to get a bolero to wear at the reception. I need your help deciding!
Okay bees, here is my dress and veil (though I won’t be wearing the veil at the reception):
And here are the bolero contenders:

First off, you’re absolutely goregous.
Secondly, I love the first bolero but not in that color. Lastly, you seriously don’t need a bolero.

First let me say that you have no reason to be self conscious about your arms from what I can see.
I chose the 2nd bolero because it is more subtle, but I honestly don’t think you need it.
What about a pashmina instead?

The gold one is gorgeous! With the veil, you really don’t need a bolero since it’s covering, so maybe just bring the bolero out for the reception?

@beekiss2: completetly agree with points 1 & 3. Personally, I like the lace bolero, but agree that you do not need it.

I also agree that you don’t need one, but if you’ll be more comfortable with one I’d go with number 2.

I love the gold bolero and I don’t think the lace one really goes with your dress. But I second the PPs in that you have nothing to be self-consious about and really don’t need the bolero!

You don’t need it at all but if you feel better than def the lace one

Actually….can I ask where you found the gold one? :o)

I think both are gorgeous! I personally went with a lace one, so I guess I lean more for the lace one. But the gold one is very pretty and fun! This pics look like they are from tulip bridal, I got my bolero there and LOVE it 🙂 (I think I also saw them on esty too)

i don’t think you need one – but do whatever makes you feel comfortable! i like the style of the gold but in lace, aka: http://www.tulipbridal.com/short-sleeve-corded-lace-wedding-bolero-lace043-white-ivory-p-177.html

I also think you don’t need one- but what about something like this:
Its a little different, and fun.
I would also say, if you have the tendancy to sweat at all, to not go with the satin one, as you’ll be wearing it while dancing(?) so sweat stains in photos wouldn’t be fun.

The first one! 🙂 It’s a similar style to mine, exept mine is the same material as my dress. I agree that you look good without one, but if you decide to wear one then I think the gold one would compliment your dress better.
