opinions please

so i am having an orthodox rabbi marry me, along with having very religious guests at my wedding, so i feel its necessary to cover my shoulders and arms. what do you ladies think would look better with the dress. the dress with matching bolero and just some seleves added on or to have seleves made out of a sheer silk material??

    First of all - your dress is stunning!!!!!!  I like the bolero but I think it might be a bit bulky when you add the sleeves.  I think sheer sleeves made for the dress would look better (only my opinion of course) - the right seamstress wil probably know exactly what to do!

    I vote for the bolero..its super cute...it looks like it has a little sleeve to it..but if you feel they need to be longer Im sure it will still look good :)

    I love the bolero...absolutely love it.  But I don't know if I'd like the look with sleeves.  I would either opt for the bolero, or for the gown alone and have sheer sleaves attached to it. 

    Congratulations on your dress, it's beautiful!

    I agree with the PPs. The dress is STUNNING and I would go for the bolero.

    Love your dress Jess. The bolero looks good how it is in the pic but I don't think I would like it if you attached sleeves to it to cover your arms. If you want to cover your arms, I may go with the sheer...just my opinion!

    I agree.  I vote for the Bolero.  I don't think you need to do anything to it though.  I think as long as your shoulders are covered, which they are with the Bolero, that is enough.  (But, I am reform and not orthodox, so I don't know what your rabbi would think is acceptable).  And your dress is absolutely stunning!
