Personally I’m not a fan, too much going on and they two designs (lace and florals) don’t go together well

I also think this isn’t enough of a cover for the church. I’d look into a bolero.

I don’t care for the applique on the illusion fabric; it doesn’t look like a match to me.  I think I’m with PPs and would suggest a bolero.

Why not add a sheer bolero or something?

I agree with the other bees. A bolero would be a classy solution to covering up, then remove for the reception!

This is a beautiful dress ! I would love to see it on you ! Do you like it ? 

Also, I agree with adding a bolero for the church ceremony if the church thinks you need to cover up more if not, then I wouldn’t.

Can I say how absolutely stunning your dress is?! It looks like something I would see on the runway. It’s gorgeous. 

Now, the illusion example above doesn’t quite line up with the style/flow of the dress neckline (maybe have it follow the downward point of the sweetheart?).

That being said, there are several alternate illusion shapes/bolero styles that your seamstress can sew for you. It certainly doesn’t have to look frumpy, and then you don’t have to sacrifice style. 

Cap sleeve illusion:

Cap sleeve bolero:

My favorite is when people have “backwards” boleros that button along the back:

And here’s some Elia Saab illusion inspiration (great way to combine a more intricate gown with an illusion neckline):

have you though of buying a seperate piece from somewhere other than the salon? search etsy for ” wedding cardigan” ” lace jacket” etc… lots of much prettier and more flattering options.
