Hey bees I got my dress back from alterations and I love it. But I’m not in love with the belt it came with. So what looks best? Beaded belt it came with, no belt at all, or making a sash from the fabric from the hemming?

I like the sparkle belt in the first picture

I like the belt the most. I also like it plain. It just depends on your style! I think the sash made from the hemming adds bulk to the waist without any sort of visual benefit though, so I would shy away from that one.
Also you look lovely in your dress!

I do like the belt, if you don’t like it maybe you would prefer a thinner but still sparkly one? It’s also nice without a belt for a more simple look. I don’t like the sash, as a PP said it doesn’t really add anything.

Thanks everyone! I will look around to see if I find another belt I like better. Maybe one with more of a gold tone. But I’m happy to see no one thought the belt was horrible.

I definitely don’t think the belt is horrible, but I find the dress gorgeous on its own!

I don’t think it needs a belt, either. The dress is lovely on its own.

I like the belt, the fabric on its own looks bulky and isn’t emphasizing your waist like the belt does. But any flat belt will do that, just don’t use the dress fabric for the belt. It’s gorgeous, but not suited for a belt.
You look beautiful in your dress!

Love the dress on its own! In the beaded belt photo you’re standing slightly sideways, which will always look slimmer than dead front like the other two. I don’t think the dress looks bulky on you in any of the photos. 🙂

I like the look with a belt, as it better defines your waist. I would maybe look for a different sparkly belt that you like more.

I like the sash best (odd man out in this thread!) but I do also like the belt. I really like how the sash makes a nice, subtle differnce in color without being too attention-grabby.

I’m pretty much always Team NoBelt, and yours is no exception. A ruched bodice and a ruffled skirt need no more embellishing. Lovely just as is .

No belt for sure. Just wear a nice necklace.

Definitely needs something round your waist, doesn’t look right with nothing at all in my opinion but the sash isn’t right also, honestly I think the original belt is stunning and you should stick with it!

I like the belt it helps define your waist in a bigger dress and it’s a way to add sparkle
