It depends on the ivory – somthem them I’ve seen are clearly NOT white, and would clash a lot. I’m sure you can find an ivory bolero. I imagine most bridal bolero makers provide them in both ivory and white?

I’m not personally a fan of boleros, but if you want more coverage what about adding thicker straps or some kind of cap sleeve?

I would definitely recommend a white bolero to go with your white gown – I think ivory would probably look funny. I would also recommend looking at boleros in a sheer, white (solid) organza like the skirt of your gown. Since you already have embellishment on the bodice, and since you already toned it down a bit, I think an organza bolero would blend in nicely while a lace one might indeed look too busy.

I think the sleevelss lace bolero would look fine, as there is no lace on the dress for it to clash with. I would however, choose white.
