I have had the hardest time finding the “right” belt for my dress. I tired on one with the dress from another Pronovias design, but to order would be something obscene like $700!
I’ve been ALL oVER ETSY – I like a lot that Twisted Crystal has to offer, but nothing is just quite right and I haven’t seen a custom order come through yet that was close either….
Granted, this won’t be like I originally envisioned, but it would be free!
Since everyone knows I’m a wedding photographer by now, it should be no surprise that I have a wedding dress or two hanging around. This one, I got after trading a “trashed” dress with another photog. I’ve never used it, it was a gorgeous dress but trust me, at this point, it’s beyond cleaning and “wearing.” It’s a very simple Ivory Satin gown (kind of like mine) and it had a dropped waist crystal belt.
Basically, we’d have to cut it off the dress, however, again, it would be free.
A little closer look at the belt I added
A look at the embellishment I could use…
Obviously, it’s a bit different, and nothing could probably come close to the gorgeous pronovias one…
Thoughts? Think I could use it?

I’d love to see a picture of the pronovias belt. Does the belt from the spare dress look very similar to the pronovias one?
I think if you use the spare dress belt on your dress, what’s going to happen is your dress will look like it has an empire waist, because the beadery will extend all the way around the side. If that’s the look you’re going for, then have at it! You could even dress it up with a big broach in the middle.

I wouldn’t want to cut up the other dress, thou you’d probably have to go to a seamstress & see what they say about using that embellishment.
You may want to get a brooch or an embellishment at a crafts store? Or if you have a fabric store, they may have some very fancy ribbon, I’ve seen some ribbon at fabric stores similar to the one on the bottom dress.
Not sure if this is anything close to what you’re wanting, but I saw this on ebay:

I think you should keep looking or go with the provonias one. I really like that one but I think you will find one. Good luck
