    Wear the jacket! Yes yes yes!

    No jacket, no no no!

    Get a different dress altogether

    you look gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous without the bolero (and fine with it too, but you don’t need to cover anything up!)

    @curse10kaia:  No to the bolero. It doesn’t compliment your dress and like a pp said it looks kind of bulky. You look wonderful without it and you have nothing to be self conscious about, so  why do you need it?

    Well to be honest I like the dress with – and without the bolero. Still I voted for without because it’s fast becoming way too hot for cover ups!

    Still, since you have it already, I’d bring it with you and on the day if it’s chilly or overcast, you’ll have the option.

    I didn’t vote, because I couldn’t make up my mind. 

    I normally really like boleros – helps to draw the attention to the bride’s bust and face, and I like how it looks at the back. But I can’t help thinking that it doesn’t really match with the dress, since your dress has no lace. Perhaps something like these (Sincerity Bridal) would be better:

    I think the bolero looks great – but the dress looks totally different without it on – I’d wear it for the ceremony and then take it off for the reception.  You’ll have two different looks and it’ll almost be like having a reception dress!

    You look great in the dress – btw!

    I love it with AND without the bolero so I like what lisaelanna said about wearing the bolero at the ceremony and off for the reception. I also LOVE the bolero that clairebbbear posted.
