I think that bolero might be too much with that dress, mainly because of your dress being lace and the bolero having so much texture as well. You never know though and I think it would be best to have a picture of the whole ensemble. What about if you did a colored bolero in a solid fabric, or in a lace fabric similar to your dress?

I like that one with your dress better than the first one! What about if you contacted a local seamstress to see if she could make you one if you supply the fabric? My seamstress also makes clothes and she sells them in an online so maybe there is someone near by that could do that for you for a good price?

I like the one that your SIL likes! Wait until you find a seamstress though, this might be food for thought….. if you have to get your dress hemmed and if it is a pretty decent hem your going to need to done maybe they could use the leftover lace to make you that and then it would match perfect!

I tried on that same dress while dress shopping, and I think that the ruffly bolero might be a bit too much with it…it’s a BEAUTIFUL dress on its own, and I think that would take away from the lace and crystals!  Maybe a more plain one would work?  I also totally agree that adding sleeves may work.  Can you get any of the fabric from David’s?  If you have them alter it for you, they may be able to make some kind of sleeves for it…

Does your veil have the thicker ribbon edge like the one pictured.  I think with that veil it would be too busy.

I think you need to go simple on the bolero, becasue your dress is so stunning. you don’t want to take away from the beauty of the dress with an accessory. Because your dress is lacy and full, i’d go with something simple on the top, maybe just tulle or satin or silk.

The lace one you just ordered is my favorite; it’s absolutely gorgeous.  I’ve been drawn to these types of lace jackets recently, and I can’t wait to see pics of you in your dress with it on.  πŸ™‚
