How about simple choffon wrap that won’t compete withe beautiful bodice on your dress?

noireames :  

What a lovely  dress. All I can say is , do not add a belt of any sort ,it looks like a  slight drop waist, not made for an added belt at all.  

Also,  don’t let any idea of a hypothetical daughter wanting to wear it 30 years from now influence your decision !

I tend to agree with pp above about a plain chiffon or tulle wrap,  lace will just  be overkill with that  beading imho.

elderbee :  I agree with all these points.  The line you want to cover is at the hips, putting a belt there (instead of your natural waist) will make your hips look really wide.  Buy your dress for *you*, not for a daughter (who, if you have one, will very likely want her own dress anyway).  And I think having something poking up from under your bodice would look really weird, but a chiffon wrap or chiffon sleeves would look nice.  What about something like this?

I don’t think you need to cover up at all. You look spectacular and while the dress is strapless, I think it is modest. That being said, this is your day and you should feel 100% comfortable. If you think you will be self-conscious, then maybe have something with you that you can add, just in case. I don’t know your budget but I remember Jenny Yoo and Hayley Paige having gorgeous options for covering up.
