i’m trying to figure out what i should get to stay warm during the reception. our reception site is open to one side and it could get a little bit chilly at night…
i have attached a picture of my dress and some options i’m considering. what do you think ladies??? i will wear my hair down or half-up/half-down if that is important. and my dress is ivory.
thank you for your inputs!
Option 1: silk bolero in ivory
Optioni 2: silk bolero – purple
Option 3: coloured shawl
Option 4: coloured cardigan
my apology that the pictures are so big!

Is your dress ivory? If so, then my vote is for the ivory bolero.

@sueanddemetrius: my dress is natural raw silk – so yes, it is ivory.

I like the bolero in ivory, it seems the most bridal to me. I love your dress!

I pick cardigan! I feel like the bolero is too modern for your romantic dress. A sweet cardigan in a matching purple would be so perfect!

I love the cardigan idea, and, being that it’s long sleeves, it might also help you if you think you’re going to be cold because you’ll be covered more 🙂

I am not a fan of the bolero, at all. Your dress is so soft and romantic looking, and the bolero looks very structered and modern to me.
I love the cardigan and shawl though! I doubt you’ll get cold though, I was running on pure adrenaline, and even in December, I was sweating!

If you decide on the cardigan, I suggest going smaller rather than larger as it can really put a damper on your look (this is only from what I’ve seen at other weddings).
I love both the boleros and contemplated both of those myself(the first looks really victorian to me) – I chose to go with a knitted bolero b/c I get really cold sometimes.
It might be cool for you to get a shawl or bolero that matches your belt.
Your dress is beautiful and you have a great figure! Can’t wait to hear what you decide.

I vote for the bolero. I think Cardigans are too casual and down-dress how you look. Not a fan, though that’s just my two cents. 🙂

Please get the colored shawl! It is the most classic and elegant 🙂

i’m still so torn!
i love the cardigan look, i love the dressier bolero look, i think the shawl is pretty fun and the colored bolero is just adorable as well….
btw: i would hava enough satin fabric that matches the colour of the sash… do you think i should make a satin bolero out of it???i kind o feel that the satin is going to look to heavy and maybe also a little bit cheap…. my dress is made of natural raw silk…
ahhh.. it’s so hard to decide. any more suggestions out there???
