I think you are trying to use all of your wedding colors in it, and I’m not sure you need to do that.  The dress is beautiful, but because of the lace, I think it will look too busy if you go with too many colors.  Obviously, my thoughts are based on the picture only (and sometimes things look better/different in person), but here’s what I think…I agree with you about not using that black belt – yuck!  If it were me, I would use a plain satin belt in the same color or similar to the dress – probably the tan color of the belt loops.  I love the ivory, tan, peach bouquet with it, but I just saw that you plan to use that one as yours.  It sounds like you really want a pop of color, so if they are carrying the bottom bouquet, I would maybe have the bridesmaids wear aqua shoes (there are a ton of them online).  Also, I would have the bridesmaids wear pearls with that dress.

If you are really wanting them to wear a colored belt, then I would have them wear neutral shoes.  I think if you try to put too much color into the ensemble it could start looking tacky.  That’s a great dress, so I would let the dress be the focus.

@SavBride:  i second that the idea of colored belt and colored shoes is too much. plus a little old fashioned “matchy matchy”. personally i would keep the belt neautral just a cream satin because the flowers will be held near the belt and you don’t want it to clash in pics. i’d leave the color for the shoes (even though i’m not a HUGE fan of colored shoes for bridesmaids anyways)

I know I’m off topic, but where are your bouquets from? They look absolutely fabulous!
