It seems like nearly everyone does a silver-colored dress on their white/ivory dress. They’re beautiful, but the rest of my wedding (including the groomsmen’s ties) are in the gold/blush/pink color family, so I feel like silver on me won’t be the best choice. I’m having the hardest time finding pictures of girls who wore other colors with their white dress. Anyone out there who can show me a picture for inspiration on whether this will work or not?!

This is my dress – not on me, obviously, haha. The actual dress I’ll wear is one shade darker than ivory – they call it “oyster”. The dress pictured is in white.
Anyway, this is the sash that comes with the dress. I haven’t decided on whether or not I’m going to wear this one or make another one, but it gives a good idea of what a non-silver belt would look like!

@jannathegreat: How funny! That was actually my runner-up dress! It’s so gorgeous–I still regret that I won’t have that beautiful back detail 🙂 I totally forgot that it had the brown belt. I’m considering doing a rose gold belt, but I was worried it would pop too much against the white. This is a reassuring picture though!

@wvc412: Hahaha! How funny. I almost went with a keyhole backed dress, but the detailing on this one was just too much and I caved. Love it.
I hate browns, especially for wedding stuff, but the belt just goes so nicely with the tones of the dress (especially in the darker color I ordered), I will probably just wear it, even though my fiance will be in grey, the guys will be in dark pants/light shirts and the girls in dark purple. Lol.

I actually just did an extremely rough photoshop mockup (seriously, excuse the shoddy work) of a warmer belt v. a cooler belt for my own dress. After seeing them side-by-side I decided warmer is better. For reference, my dress is a light gold/champagne satin with a white lace overlay. Don’t know if this photo is helpful or not…but here it is anyway 🙂
