Probably. Best to try on the dress and ask

Clairetoris:  I tried this dress on and from memory it wasn’t separate but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to remove it.

Most crystal belts are just applique’d on, meaning it’s just stitched on top of the dress. I did some of the alterations on my dress myself (Hayley Paige Opal gown, if you wanted to know what that belt looks like), and it was remarkably easy with a seam ripper. You can even use a pair of scissors. However, if the belt is part of the dress structure/seams, it will be very difficult. Looks like yours is probably easy to remove.

Looking at that dress, I’d hazard a guess that that belt covers a join between the bodice and skirt, which might look odd exposed.
