Wedding Wednesday- To Bolero or not to Bolero?

 So this weekend, the Boy and I went to Carmel and I finally found THE dress. I have been pretty embarrassed at how long it took me to find the right thing, but I absolutely love this dress and I am just really excited.  Of course, if I didn't have to minorly fret about something then it would no longer be our wedding planning. So the dress can come with a bolero that matches; I am not sure if it is super adorable or super dorky, so this is my current debate (with myself).

I think of boleros as usually being a little either vampish (like this one) or prudish (I am not a Duggar), but I think there are ones that can add cool texture and almost a cap sleeve. In the new movie Melancholia,  Kirsten Dunst wears a sort of over the top one, but I do think it is beautiful and makes her dress seem sort of glamorous (I think if I wore one, it would only be for the ceremony... boleros at a reception in August seems a little ostentatious/ stupid). But I think it gives a great feeling of fanciness that could easily shift into something more casual (or apocalyptic in this bride's case).

The other option is to get the bolero and have them build it into a cap sleeve. The most annoying part of the whole thing is that you can't actually try it on, because they didn't have it on the store. Also, it is ridiculously expensive for a little piece of fabric, so my goal right now is to be on the lookout for one that is used on the internet. I think it might be a cool little thing to make the overall wedding look a little more unique, but I don't think that is enough of a priority to be worth the amount of money they want for it. But the main point is that we have moved on to debating these little things instead of big dramas like the dress. This is the first week where everything really seems clear and like it has come together, so I am excited! Yay wedding rush over Christmas, now it is time to focus on the dissertation again!
