    @Tbblount:  I really like it with the belt, so I’d wear it the whole time.

    Have you checked out sashes on etsy? There are so many options it can get overwhelming (that’s what I’m currently experiencing), but the prices will be much nicer.

    I always love belts, but I actually like it better without. Maybe the belt is too wide? It’s not accentuating your waist. Look at a thinner belt and see if you like it better? If not, it is classic and gorgeous without it.

    @JrzyGurl:  ditto! 

    Well, I don’t ALWAYS love belts, but when I saw it with, I thought WOW, and then without…the simplicity is so lovely. And you certainly don’t need it to help your shape!

    I love the belt, although I do not love the price lol I voted to wear it the whole time. If you do end up getting it and paying that much, I would use it as much as possible lol

    @Tbblount:  Your dress is so incredible and detailed, I think the belt with the lace might be too much. Don’t forget that you’re also going to be carrying a beautiful bouquet, so there will be a lot going on during the ceremony. 

    Perhaps a simpler belt, if you want one, to wear during the reception and to change the look? I would like a belt with pearl or crystal instead of the rhinestone.

    @Tbblount:  I really like the belt, so I voted for you to wear it the whole time. However, you don’t have to spend $350 to get a beautiful belt.  I quickly browsed Etsy and found a few. I have posted a link to the pages below, sorry I couldn’t get the pictures to load (grrr).

    You should have no problem finding a cute sash for around or under $100.

    @Tbblount:  My usual answer to any belt question is yes, but you happen to be the exception to the rule.  I think your dress is so beautiful and unique, that the belt actually takes away from the side peplum.

    @Tbblount:  I really like the belt, but you have to love how you look! If you aren’t sold, go with the plain dress.
