Hi bees, after seeing some other brides on here with the same dress, I began to wonder if I should add a belt to highlight my waist?
I am thinking of either a sparkly belt (possibly only for the reception), like this:
or a plain ribbon, possibly tying the bow over the highest flower to play up the assymetry of the skirt, like this:

That is a gorgeous dress!! I voted no belt. I like sashes/belts with dresses that do not already have a lot of detail, but your gown has such beautiful lines and detail already that I would not try to compete with it by adding a belt or ribbon. You will look stunning in that dress just as it is! 🙂

I would say a skinny one like in the photo or no belt. Gorgeous dress

I love the dress on its own, but I think it would look even better with a thin, sparkly belt like the one the blonde bride is wearing in the 2nd pic. The dress has such gorgeous details on the bottom half, but the top is pretty simple, so I don’t think a small, sparkly belt would distract from the rosettes.

Nope no belt!! It looks great on you just as it is…..I think it ould be too much with a belt!

I love the dress how it is. If you do decide to go with an option, I think an nice see-through ribbon would work, because the sparkly belt seems a bit too much for me, especially if you have some nice accessories already.
The truth is most of us are going to share our dress with several hundred people, but it will probably still be a unique dress for the guests. It doesn’t matter as long as it looks good on you, and trust me, that dress looks great on you.

Beautiful dress! I’d nix the belt so the rosettes and lines can really shine. What a gorgeous shape you have in that dress girl! 🙂

I would leave it. It would be too busy if you added a belt. It looks great as is!

This was one of my favorite dresses when I was looking. Already has a lot of details I would say no to the belt.

I don’t think your dress needs a sash given all the detail, but you could get away with a sparkly, thin sash for the reception if you wanted to. Either way, very pretty!
