    thegoods:  I am a bit biased as this is my dress but rest assured this dress is even more perfect when you get your own. The beading on the sample in the store threw me off in some pictures but when it arrived its beautiful. 

    I personally think a belt is way too much with this dress (with or without the beading on hip) I think accessorizing with jewelry and veil is enough but it is totally up to you. You look gorgeous in the dress whatever you choose

    thegoods:  Yes exactly! Check out my latest thread to see pictures of it when its fit. I went through a period of regret initially too so I know where you are coming from 🙂

    I think you look like a knock-out just as it is! I wouldn’t change anything!

    I would leave all the beading, it’s beautiful!  And perhaps just add a belt.  No such thing as too much bling!

    As you don’t have a tiny waist (more a straight up and down body shape,) a belt will  make you look “boxy” rather than curvy.  The dress looks totally stunning as it is. Your friends are right. Time to stop obsessing and turn your attention to something else.

    one thing to remember is that in a lot of your photos you will be holding your bouquet so your midsection will often be covered, which you might like if you tend to fixate on your midsection. Yay flowers! 🙂
