    You must have been tiny before if you gained 30 lbs. Your arms look great.

    1–your dress is beautiful.  Who is the designer?

    2–I agree with Kaylee, your arms don’t look bad

    3–I dislike boleros so I will always vote against them

    4–If you are still sensitive about your arms, go spend $10 on Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred and do it religiously for the next month.  That plus watching your calories will take care of the arms/stomach.  Lots of plank exercises, which I never did a lot of and which totally changed my upper body.

    You look fabulous! We are essentially dress and belt twins. I too am thinking about adding a bolero. It looks fabulous on you. I would play it by ear. I would wear the bolero to the ceremony, and if you are feeling comfortable w/out it, take it off at the reception.

    I think the bolero takes away from the dress to be honest. You look fantastic. Seriously, I have what I call turkey arms, just kinda big and meaty looking in pictures so I understand your sensativity, but you have nothing to worry about.

    No bolero, it takes away from your beautiful dress. Besides, your arms look fine – you look great!

    You are beautiful and do not need a bolero to cover anything up.

    Just sayin’. Cool

    No Bolero. I will also always vote against them just because Im not a fan. But to each their own! I think you are crazy and your arms look great!! I second some 30 Day Shred actions to tone those babies up! It will boost your confidence!

    You do NOT need them – you are gorgeous and your dress is beautiful as it is, arms or not. 🙂

    You definitely don’t need it, but I think the bolero is cute and makes the ensemble more unique than a regular strapless dress.  Up to you though.

    I think in this case, the bolero is too much and takes away from the dress.

    Your arms look FINE girl! Keep the veil for the ceremony. It means a lot to be wearing it during the ceremony. You won’t be wearing it for the reception so at least wear it to the ceremony.

    Your bolero is very ‘light’ so it doesn’t really matter whether you wear it with the veil or not. It isn’t overpowering so it won’t take over the outfit. If you are concerned about your arms and that is the reason you want to wear it, then trust me, you have nothing to worry about. Your arms are FINE.

    Your arms look great, but I LOVE that bolero!  So cute!  I think it wouldn’t look right with the veil though so I say no the ceremony, but yes for the rest of the night.  It’s adorable!

    I say wear the veil for the ceremony, and the bolero for the evening!  They both look great, but not together! And girl, you look fabulous but I totally understand the arms and tummy thing (I’ve got the same problem).  Nothing like wedding planning to get us all in action…
