So I really wanted lace on my dress, but I couldn’t find one I loved anywhere. I fell in love with a dress that I own now but it has no lace on it at all.
Would this cover go well with the dress I already bought?

Does that have holes in it?!

I don’t think so .It’s a little weird

I think I would opt for a lace bolero like this one
The lace cover up you posted would interfere with the detail under the bust and it wouldn’t look cohesive.

uhmm… I dont think so. I’m sorry. Have you tried maybe adding some lace to the skirt or something. Or maybe a jacket less.. uhmm… less like that one.
edit: Your dress is incredibly beautiful btw

Because of the detailing along the bust, I don’t feel they go well together. I like the idea of a lace bolero instead. However, I think your dress is beautiful as is without any lace.

Honestly, I don’t think the lace bolero that you picked goes with that dress well at all. It’s all because of the fold detailing along the bustline, I think it would add a lot of awkward bulk. I think the bolero that @RichsGirl4Life posted would work much MUCH better, since it would still show off all of the lovely detailing on your dress.
I would also like to add that your dress is absolutely gorgeous on its own. Unless you specifically need to cover your shoulders I would just go without. You might add a poll for more opinions. 🙂

Your dress is STUNNING! But I don’t think the lace cover will go well with it… the bodice has such lovely detail with the beading and ruching…
I think a lace bolero will look much nicer, as it would not cover the front of your dress! 🙂

As there is a beading decoration under the bust part, and the lace bolero may cover that. So my personally opinion is no.

I agree with PP, I don’t think it will go. Sorry. Sometimes you just fall in love with something completely different than you originally thought you would. Like I always always always thought I would have a big tulle ballgown and I ended up getting a dress with no tulle! But it’s got pickups, rosettes, lace, and beading. Basically everything but tulle haha

Thank you all for your opinions on this, I think I may just leave the dress alone. The theme of my wedding includes mostly lace and pearls and I think I was second guessing my dress because I felt like it should match the theme. Perhaps Im overthinking it!

@kelocklin: Man, I LOVE the lace overlay though.
If it were me? I would simply have the detail under the bust REMOVED and wear the lace cover instead. Is that dress from DB? If so, I definitely tried on that exact dress, and they told me it would be the simplest thing in the world to remove that detail under the bust.

@rachelmichelle: Yes it is, I wonder how much it would cost to have it removed cause that sounds like another option.
