There aren’t any rules but will you be comfortable in a bolero?  From what I can see of your arms in the picture, they look good!  I know that doesn’t help you feel better but maybe you could go to the gym and do some toning exercises to make yourself feel more confident about your arms?

I think it would be cute.  I would just worry about being too hot (not sure where you live though).

PS – Beautiful dress!

Your dress is beautiful!!!

Girl, I am also self conscious and was considering wearing a bolero but I am wearing the veil all night. The veil covers up everything.

I think the bolero is cute and you can pull it off but the dress probaly looks better without it. If it makes you comfortable….wear it! You will look beautiful either way girl.

I think being inside you might actually be a little cold.  I’m not sure about where you are but here they crank up the A/C so high when it is hot out that I need a sweater inside!  Your arms might be cold at the reception.

I’m wearing a bolero at night in July. We are by the ocean, so it will cool off considerably. Nothing wrong with something pretty that makes you comfy.

I am thinking of wearing one in May. It is cooler in may but still summertime. I think if you are comfortable then you should be fine. People have told me not to wear it but I love the bolero look. Plus, I want to cover my arms.

im wearing a lace bolero for my wedding… i think there are NO RULES as soon as you feel comfortable… instead of satin bolero, what about wearing a shrug/bolero of the same material of the bottom of your dress? chiffon maybe..it is lighter than satin…

I think with a satin bolero AND the veil, you’ll look very hot and covered up. The veil covers your arms very well when it falls over your shoulders in the front. I liked the suggestion of a chiffon or lace or sheer bolero.

If you’re self-conscious about your arms, you still have 4 months to get them in shape! Get some 3-5 lb weights and start pumping them! You’ll be amazed what a difference it will make.

Take the veil only!  which will cover your arms better than the bolero. I am honest. The bolero will make the top much heavy, so just forget the bolero.

It’s a cute bolero and you should wear it if it will make you feel more comfortable. But — I think you look GREAT in the pic without it!
