    I asked my fiance too, and he likes the belt.  I do too 🙂

    Although may I suggest moving the belt up to just under your bust line?  I feel like it covers so much of the gorgeous ruching when it’s right smack in the middle.  Plus you have such a pretty natural waist!


    Gorgeous dress.

    First of all.. WOW!!! You look AH-MAZING!! 


    I love the dress with and without the belt.  Why not wear it without the belt for the ceremony, and jazz up the dress with the belt for the reception?

    Such a gorgeous dress!

    I like it with a belt, but it will look amazing either way! It shows off your figure so nicely!

    Btw, you may want to add a poll to this so it’s easier for you to see which one everyone prefers.

    First of all you look amazing! And the dress is gorgeous. 🙂

    I’m usually pro-belt…but for some reason I like the simplicity of the dress the way it is…and the belt kind of cuts the ruching pattern.

    When I first saw the beltless pictures I was on camp no belt.  You look amazing in that dress and I thought a belt my distract from that a little bit.  However, when I saw the belt it was more subtle then I though so I thought it also looked good!  Really you can’t go wrong either way, but if I had to pick I’d say no belt.

    @Evie19:  I agree completely!  The belt takes away from the beauty of the gown and sort of cuts her in half.

    @kmolitor: If you’re concerned that it looks too simple, imagine yourself with some gorgeous jewels!  The gown is gorgeous and YOU will look amazing on your big day!

    Are you wearing a veil?

    Something else I just thought about – belts and sashes are pretty popular now (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I very well may end up with one myself) so I feel like adding the belt reminds me more of some other dresses, while in the pictures without the belt it feels more unique.

    You look amazing!  As much as I love belts with dresses, I am loving the first picture of you without the belt.  Although, the belt is simple and pretty so you really cannot go wrong either way.  I actually would maybe consider it for church only rather than reception only?

    I’m usually all for a belt, but this time I think it looks better without.  You look awesome!

    Without.  The rouching is beautiful and the waist/hips of that dress hit you in all the right spots.

    If you want to add a little “something” to it – what about a pin of some kind (with beading or a flower) on one of the sleeves or one hip?

    WOW!! Beautiful dress. Definitely no sash. The ruching is already so beautiful and you have that amazing bod you don’t need a sash.

    @leembee: I second that! Keep it clean for the ceremony, then spice it up with the belt for the reception!
