my dress is very simple with no embelishments and with buttons all down back. I am going to wear a mantilla veil. before that idea came to my head, I was planning on wearing a belt. Now I am worried that both will be too much, did anyone have a simple dress like this with a mantilla veil AND belt?! i need some examples! THX!!

I don’t think a belt that goes all the way around your waist with no excess fabric being tied will look bad with the veil. But with the bow tied and a veil, seems it’s too much. Too distracting.

Do the mantilla. A mantilla will look stunning with your dress. A lot of times a mantilla looks the best with a dress that doesn’t even have any lace on it at all. Personally I’m not a sash fan. I think the perfect look for your dress would be: no sash, yes mantilla, yes super awesome necklace and other jewelry. And I just realized I voted wrong. So my vote goes for Option 2.
ETA: The sash would be a great compromise for the reception, especially if you do plan on taking the veil off for the reception. You can take the veil off after the ceremony and put the sash on for the reception.
