    I vote no on the Bolero. Its cute in the back but I’m not a fan of the front

    Your dress looks beautiful on you!  I like the concept of the bolero, but if your main concern is looking naked or broad shouldered you don’t have anything to worry about.  Rarely have I seen wedding photos with the bride looking naked in a strapless dress.  I’m not sure how I feel about the lace…since your dress is so simple otherwise I feel like it might be a little out of place.

     I think that bolero overpowers the dress. It’s pretty without it, and I don’t think it’s possible for you to look broad shouldered.

    Your dress is very pretty as it is; your shoulders look very delicate and feminine.

    Sorry, not a fan of the bolero. I have never seen any wedding pictures where a bride looks naked because she is wearing a strapless dress so I dont think you should worry too much about that.

    Love the dress as is!  Unlike pp, I like the bolero from the front but not the back!  I prefer without though.  The dress is so pretty on you!

    I agree with PPs–love the dress without the bolero (and I am a huge bolero lover/wearer).

    I actually really like the bolero! It’s one of the cutest ones I have seen. You could always wear it for the ceremony and take it off at the reception.

    NO on the bolero. It doesn’t match at all. You can also add a larger necklace for when you’re sitting at a table and worried you’ll look naked.

    No bolero or spaghetti straps. It’s perfect as is!

    MrsMusicBird111:   The dress is gorgeous on you as it is – if you must add something I’d suggest a fairly simple necklace, to make a slight V shape.

    I really like the bolero!  I think it adds a touch of romance to your dress.

    I had the same concerns, about looking naked in pictures and general exposure concerns.  I added cap sleeves for my dress.  I love the idea of a bolero, but I don’t think the lace one goes with your dress.  There’s a lot of beautifully simple chiffon boleros.  Maybe that would work better?  It’s an option.  🙂
