Ok bees, I’m having a 2 month ’till the wedding dress doubt-fest. I was on the verge of buying another off the rack dress this weekend, but thought I’d post some photos to take a bees-poll first. The dress has already been let out as much as they could, so it won’t help to alter it anymore unfortunately. Should I go with the little jacket or not? Do you have other ideas that might look nice? THANKS BEES!!!

Your dress is gorgeous and looks amazing on you. I love the bolero, it adds something extra. Stop doubting, you look great!!!!

i love it with the bolero! gorgeous!
and your dress is perfect on you imho, …
who makes it if you dont mind me asking?

I think you look gorgeous without the bolero, the bolero adds bulk and looks like you’re trying to cover something up if you ask me, and I don’t see anything worth covering 🙂

The bolero looks nice, but I like it better without it. You look lovely btw.

I personally am not a fan of boleros in general, I feel like it looks like you’re trying to hide something. You look STUNNING with just the dress on.. There’s nothing you need to cover up. The bolero doesn’t add anything to your look (IMO) and you look like a beautiful shapely woman in just your dress.

@curse10kaia: it’s a really close call. No bolero won out in the end only because I don’t think it suit the dress from the front but the back view with the bolero is lovely.
It looks more streamlined without the bolero but only by a tiny bit.
Could you do both? Bolero for ceremony and without for the reception?

I like both looks – maybe save the bolero for when it is chillier?

@beautifulmama28 The dress is made by Allure.
I appreciate all the feedback! (Tough when it’s close to a tie so far!) I’m wondering if I couldn’t have someone alter the bolero into some sort of a thing where it would be lace to cover the back but turn into straps in the front so it’s not so overwhelming… anyone ever seen anything like that?
(Sort of like this in the front but would still cover the back?)

I prefer it without the bolero, as another bee says – it adds unnecessary bulk and kind of covers up your lovely shape. There’s also so much detail on your dress, I think adding a lace bolero makes it a bit too busy.

I think you look lovely!! The bolero is super cute– plus if you get hot you can always take it off!! But the dress you have is gorgeous 😀

@BookishBelle: Agreed! I love your dress and you do not need to cover anything up!

You look amazing in your dress either way! I was kind of expecting to see why you might want to cover up your arms/back when you had the bolero on, but really you don’t need it!
@bellasmum: I like how the back looks with the Bolero too! But it does distract from the front a tiny bit.

LOVE the bolera from the back, but not as much from the front. I think the dress is beautiful without bolero!

No bolero, and you look amazing in your dress by the way!
