I think if the bolero wasn’t really open-necked it would be fine

I think, with this cut of dress, IF you felt the need to cover your arms, I might go with a flutter sleeve added on to the dress in a lace or organza. Sort of like this:

I really like the above suggestion…I would pick a bolero like that but just keep it as an option. I’m sure you will look fantastic without it..such a pretty dress! I’m not a huge fan of my upper arms right now either….they aren’t huge or anything,…let’s just say the death of my 20’s is starting to show. I’ve been lifting weights..so hopefully they will look better by my wedding day. Good luck! your dress is fabulous!

I’m looking at one on Light in the box, and she has a v-neck dress on, and it looks nice.  I haven’t ordered yet, but the price looks good.   They have several.  I think I’m going to get this simple organza one.  My dress is the rosette chiffon wedding dress from JC Penny.

What do the bees think about the top dress with the bolero jacket (2nd photo)?
