I must have posted a million times about my never ending dress dilemma. Here’s a recap if you’ve missed it:
1) After searching for a month, I bought a dress at DB (November)
2) Once it came in, I realized I wanted a new one and tried on a few. (November)
3) I decided to just jazz up my dress to save money rather than spend a lot more. (December)
4) I couldn’t settle. I wanted a new one and fell in love with a Justin Alexander gown (Monday)
5) Today I added accessories to my original dress. What do you think??

Well I think the bottom of that dress is GORGEOUS (I mean, so is the rest of it but that for me is where the wow factor is) and I am a fan of all things sparkly so I say get both!

I like it! I think the belt brings it up a notch. And I agree, the bottom is gorgeous.

I like both the veil and the belt but I would move the belt down to your natural waist. RIght now it seems sort of out of place under your bust like that.

@Sunnyday278: @preppybear: @rachie576: Thank you!! I think I’m starting to have a little confidence in my pick 🙂
@Meowkers: Thanks for the input. I initially had it on my natural waist. With my short torso, it actually hid what little curve I have! I’ll try it out again though 🙂

@Meowkers: I agree, move the belt down.
Love the bottom of that dress! The veil is lovely too, I adore cathedral length veils!

I’d get both. It’s still going to be way, way cheaper than buying a whole nother dress.

I think this is a really great look: the dress, the belt, and the veil! You look stunning!

The belt is a great addition; like other posters, I’d like to see it at your natural waist, but if you feel more comfortable with it higher, you should wear it higher. I also love the bottom of the dress and the length and shape of the veil. Is it possible that a veil with a plainer edge might not compete with the dress quite as much? Maybe one with some random sparkles, or a sparkly edge? Hard to tell from the photo how well it coordinates with the dress, but I think the texture of your dress is unique and amazing and needs to stand out on its own. My only suggestion would be to try a veil without the heavy lace edging and see what you think. Overall, the entire ensemble is just gorgeous, and I hope you’re feeling more “bridal” in it with these additions. Thanks for keeping us posted!

OMG. So pretty! I think the veil totally makes the whole look. I’m jealous!

@EffieTrinket: I love cheaper. lol I could do so much with the cost of another gown
@howtobeawife: I’ll try the belt down lower again, but it definitely looks more proportional on me higher. I’m definitely not opposed to trying though.
I definitely like it a lot better with the accessories. It felt so.. blah before. Honestly, I keep regretting the odd texture. It’s that raised ribbon-y lace. It’s very different.
@TexasAggieMom: I’m not a big fan of the simpler veils. I tried several on, but it just isn’t quite what I want. I actualy like the veil more than I like the dress. lol! It’s not an exact match, but I think it works. Just don’t look toooo close!

@OnceUponATime: If you could post a picture of the belt lower for comparison, that would be swell. Maybe you’re right and it looks best under the bust! But it would be easier to help with a comparison picture. Also, I’m glad that you like it better with the accessories! That’s good to hear!
