I have recently been back to my dress shop to try on my accessories with my dress. The only thing that bugged me was that the glitzy style belt may not be right for the overall look I’m after.
We are having our reception in our garden, English country garden theme, quite relaxed and groom will be in a semi casual suit.
Here is a pic of my in the dress with the glitzy belt:
And the belt close up (but mine is ivory obviously):
Now the other option I have is a floral belt and have found a really sweet one in my price range:
Or another stlye of flower?
So what do you think???? Go for the floral belt, stick with the glitzy, not wear ab elt, make my own floral belt. HELP!

Thanks your opinion. I think it does look good, I admit, I just feel like it may be over the top when Fiance will be dressed in a casual suit??

I like the floral Belt in pic2 Although I’m not sure I would go with such a wide ribbon.

@Birdi: I totall agree! the wide ribbon also put me off. It’s an etsy seller so I may be able to request a thinner ribbon. Other than that I would consider making one myself using flower brooches/hair pins.

I love the belt with flowers from the second picture, I think the only thing that could be improved upon is to have a thinner belt – that ribbon seems really wide.

I love the glitzy belt, but if you don’t love it, I think the flowered one would look great too!

@EnglishWifey: I think the flowers may be too big on the floral belt. I say “may” be becasue I can’t tell the scale.
The glitzy belt is a common look so it’s trendy, but that said, I happen to like this belt a lot because it is simple and understand for glitz. There is one splash of sparkle, it’s night like the whole belt all the way ’round is jeweled.

@EnglishWifey: Can I just mention that a DIY version of all of theses can be done for less then $20?
I Etsy searched ‘rhinestone applique’ > bought one for $11 > bought some pretty ribbon and will attach them together. Whamo – bridal belt for less then a $20 bill.
You can get the flowers for the floral one to do the same thing…

I much prefer the flowers, the blingy belt is nice but I think silk flowers suit the style of your gown better.
