    I like it with but I think you could go for a thicker more blinged out one πŸ™‚

    ETA: I just noticed your jewelery… I think I would lose the necklace and do a belt instead.

    I voted no belt.  I think the dress is so fun on it’s own with those unique ruffles that really stand out and you have the perfect touch on top with that statement necklace.  The belt ends up getting a little lost and looking out of place. Don’t add sparkle just to add sparkle – it all still needs to make sense.  I love the look without the belt!

    OR I agree that you could try a different belt, one with bigger bling.  I know that goes against what I said up above, but I think it would look more proportionate.

    I love the belt with the dress, but not sure about it with the necklace.

    I don’t think you’re overdoing accessories with the belt, but I just love the rouching in the front and the belt kinda covers it up. Gorgeous dress!!! You look amazing in it, and it will look great either way.

    I usually want to throw a belt on everything but your dress is soooo gorgeous on its own. I honestly think the belt kind of cheapens it a bit. Love the necklace! I say let the dress stand on its on, but it’s YOUR wedding and if you love the belt then go for it πŸ™‚ Remeber also that you’ll be carrying a bouqet which will add even more to the picture. Your dress is GORGEOUS and you look amazing!

    I agree with the other bees. Go bigger, or leave it off. I think it looks very pretty without the belt. But if you want more “wow factor,” a big blingy belt would be perfect πŸ™‚

    Just to add, I think what’s bugging me about the belt is it cuts you in half. You look so long and slender without out. Just my opinion!

    If your Dad bought it then you MUST wear it. I would lose the necklace though.

    You look long and very slim without the belt. With it you look sort of truncated. I’d go sans belt.

    Belt it up! I think it draws attention to how slim your waist is and emphasizes the profile of the lovely gown. Besides, there is no such thing as over-accessorizing on your wedding day, right? πŸ˜‰
