    The boleros you have shown do not seem like they will keep you much warmer than if you did not wear one

    Did the shop you bought your dress at have any boleros to try on? I think it will be difficult to find a lace bolero that won’t compete/clash with the lace on your dress (which is beautiful, by the way). It seems like it would be very busy overlaying lace on lace, especially when the lace underneath will show through. 

    As a previous poster stated, I also don’t think these boleros would keep you very warm.

    However, if you really like the look, then you should go for it, it’s your day ;).

    Any lace bolero you get will likely compete/ ot match with the lace on your dress. They are a dream on a non fussy material like satin (as pictured) but I think this would be a nightmare getting the perfect match, so I voted a big no to the bolero.

    Why not have a stole or a cashmere cardigan?

    If your dress was satin/no lace I would say yes but the lace on lace will look too busy.

    I’d go for an intricate veil.

    Your dress has too much detail for a lace bolero IMO.  If you’re worried about getting cold then get a shrug or a shawl or something.  You could have a really fancy cashmere, embellished shawl or large scarf made to cover you. 🙂

    Lace dresses doesnt go well with lace bolero. Usually girls with simple satin dresses wear bolero. You could try a fur coat.

    Here what I wore

    Keira:  I personally believe that the beaded bolero’s are a little too much and will clash with the dress and take away from it’s beauty. I had a late fall wedding myself in NY (Halloween) and had a strapless dress. I had an ivory shrug with my for just in case I got cold but to be honest, the adrenaline that was pumping through me was so insane that I never even put anything on. In my honest opinion get something that is super easy to throw on and take off that won’t be pulled over your head (you don’t want to mess up your hair or the veil).
