    hi ladies!

    so i love my dress but each time iv tried it on iv just not been totally happy with my arms so a few people have suggested a bolero which sounds perfect and iv looked online and i love the lace 3/4 length arm ones but my dress has no lace at all so i don't know if it will look odd together?
    and iv also got a veil thats below my elbow will a long sleeve bolero suit a veil or will it seem like too much going on?
    any opinions would be greatly appreciated :-)

    Does your shop have any that you could try on?? How full is your veil?? It might come round and cover your arms depending

    your dress doesnt need lace on it for a lace bolero to match but what type of lace etc will depend on the rest of your dress. the only way to work out is to try a few on with your dress x

    I've seen chiffon ones with a lace edge on 3tsy so if you were worried the lace might be too much, this would just be a small amount. Def try some different ones on and see what you like - it might be like when brides like a particular type of dress and then choose something completely different to what they thought! X

    There are lots of bolero styles in different materials. I'd suggest trying as many on with your dress and veil as you can. The material doesn't have to match x

    thank you for the replies ladies, iv been away with work with no internet so sorry for my late reply is thanking you all.
    i do have a veil which is below my elbow, im just worried it will look like too much going on if i have lace swell as a massive poofy dress :-S iv looked in the boutique i got my dress from and they only have see through beaded ones that wouldn't suit my dress at all, iv seen some nice ones on the bay of E but looking at the feedback a few people have commented that the ivory isn't quite the right colour to a ivory wedding dress and i don't want to waste the money! aaahhhhh dilemma!

    Does the shop doing your alterations have any boleros? or dresses which lace can be removed so you can try on?
