Pretty dress! I do agree that a different belt around the waist to accentuate your figure more would be a good idea. But it’s up to you! The dress is already very pretty.

maybe a wider belt and a pretty lace edge veil?

I think a beaded belt would be pretty with your veil and a sparky bracelet and earrings! But dainty!

Beaded belt all the way around with lots of sparkle would be my suggestion! The dress looks great on you.

castela1389:  Is that dress fitted to you yet?  I’m guess no. If not, once it’s fitted I think it will accentuate you figure perfectly and you don’t need to add a belt.  Personally, I think those sparkly, beaded belts look chintzy.  I’m sorry to anyone I’ve offended, but I think they end up taking very gorgeous dresses down a notch class wise every time.  That’s just me, though.  I think the dress looks gorgeous as is.

What would it look like with no belt?  I think the feature of the dress is it’s asymterical lines and it seems a shame to cloud those with a belt.  Don’t forget that your bouquet will be an acessory too.

I’d go with no belt too, ( I pretty much always  do)  They rarely add to the beauty of a dress and often have the effect of making a waist look wider.  

Your dress, as pp above says,  with that  with elegant assymetrical ruching would not,  IMO,  be enhanced by  horizontal bling across it. . And as another  pp has said, when perfeclty fitted to you , will look amazing.  Delicate bracelet()s)  and/or necklace can supply your sparkle.

What is your veil like ? I’m   thinking a horsehair or similarly edged one , to echo the ruching on the gown  would look pretty good!

Beautiful! I agree…maybe get a belt that is beaded all the way around!
