Ask Justin Alexander- Should I Wear A Bolero On My Wedding Day?

Q: I bought my beautiful 8558 dress last July from the wonderful Lulu Browns in Whalley and I also bought the matching belt. Having bought the dress so long ago and my August wedding now fast approaching I need your help! I am having a church wedding and I feel my shoulders should be covered. But with such a busy belt and the beautiful lace detail I don't know what to do about a bolero. I am also unsure whether to go for a veil or not. What are your thoughts?


A: Boleros are a great way to add a bit of coverage for your wedding ceremony if you want a more demure look. It's also a great excuse to showcase two looks on your big day! When it comes to Style 8558 I would suggest pairing it with our bolero A031. This bolero has embroidered and beaded cap sleeves that will match the beading on your belt (A015).


I've said it before- I love a bride in a veil! Veils are the cherry on top of the wedding dress delicacy. It really just completes the whole bridal look. If you haven't tried on veils make an appointment this weekend so you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. I would suggest you wear a one layer veil so that it doesn't compete with the gorgeous lace on Style 8558. And when it comes to the veil length make sure to choose one you're comfortable with.


Take a look at our Justin Alexander Brides album on Facebook where you can see how other brides have styled their Justin Alexander lace wedding dresses.  


Jodi is a Justin Alexander bride who also wore Style 8558 and decided to go with a caged veil to add some flair to her bridal look. And Kristen opted for a veil with a thin trimming.
