Clearly, a decision I can make later down the road, but I’m so up in the air!
I’m so in love with the dress and don’t think it needs anything else, but the belt gives me such a great shape! Also, my colors are browns, tans and oranges. Do you think the blush colored belt would clash??
(LOL at my smiley face!!!)

This belt makes the dress so romantic. It gives the gown a very special look.

@BurlapnLace The belt makes your eye get drawn away from the beautiful details in your dress. It’s too much. You have a beautiful shape anyways. If you want to add extra color, look for a necklace/earrings in that blush tone.

@BurlapnLace: You look stunning in your dress! I am usually a fan of belts with dresses but your dress does not need a belt at all. I think the belt is a bit distracting due to all the texture your dress has so I vote NO belt!

Pretty dress. Definitely no belt. It cuts you in two.

@BurlapnLace: I don’t think the belt would clash with your theme, but I also don’t think that dress needs it. The material already has a lot going on, and your shape looks great! My personal opinion is that a belt just breaks up the gorgeousness all around.

No belt. You look slimmer without the belt. Also the lace on the veil right by you shoulders and head also adds bulk to you. A less ornate veil may look better. Pretty dress.

Thanks for the opinions, it helps!
I also plan on trimming down, toning up and having the neckline brought down a tad into more of a sweetheart.

I have seen this dress in person and one a few different girls
Please….. NO BELT………..

That belt goes great with the dress! I think it’s similar enough to tan that it wouldn’t clash.

I don’t mind a belt, but I wouldn’t use this belt (although I love the color and style of it, I think it doesn’t go that well with your dress).
I also agree with a less detailed veil.
Your dress has beautiful elements on it, I would definitely try not to distract from such a beautiful gown !

Between the two, I chose no belt, but perhaps try a thinner ribbon/belt sans flowers, in cream/tan.

Not that belt. I would do a very plain, simple satin belt. Any detail on the belt will take away from the beautiful detail on the dress.
