- Wedding: September 2012
Okay so you’ve all been so lovely and helpful in my choosing of the dress that I thought I’d ask your opinions because I am now in need of guidance with my accessory belt dilemma.
A little background: My fiance & I will wed aboard a beautiful yacht called The Eternity in a sunset ceremony with evening reception immediately following so we are a pretty formal slash fun night affair.
Here’s the Eternity:
Our colors are Navy, Champagne, White/Ivory & hints of Red with a nautical vibe.
Fiance and the boys will be lookin sharp in navy Ben Sherman suits with this vest/tie combo:
and I want the girls in Champagne but I think a platinum might compliment the vest better.
That’s a whole different poll… LOL
Here is my lovely Priscilla of Boston Platinum Collection gown:
She originally came with a bolero but I bought it at a close out sample sale without it and since our wedding is in Sept, I figured I’d be fine without it and just add a belt…
So i’ve been looking at belts but the thought of spending $300-$1000 was just painful for me to grasp so I’ve been browsing etsy and eBay and the classifieds here and was not finding much that caught my eye.
Belts were either too pricey for not much or too small in width (I wanted at least 2″-3″ inches or more) or not really fitting with the style of dress and ahh I was losing hope.
I found this belt that was 5 rows of rhinestones and just over an inch wide but it didn’t make an impact like I feel the front of the dress needs:
So I saw this big blingy custom made one on eBay for $100 (she paid $250 to have it made) and snatched it up cuz I thought it could be the one:
I got it and want to change the ribbon its on (at the very least bc its white and my dress is ivory) and maybe take some of the little accent pieces off the sides but overall I think it makes a great impact on the front of the dress and BLINGS!
I’d want to remove the belt’s bow so that it doesnt cover the back of the dress…
Do you think the belt is too much?
Do you think it matches the bling buttons on the back?
Do you think it goes well with the bows on the back?
Do you think its what my dress needs or do you have another suggestion?
I alread have my dream wedding shoes, The Badgley Mischka Lissa’s:
and am doing a brooch bouquet of silver & etc sparkley bits. This is my inspiration pic:
Tell me! Tell me! What do you think?!
THANK YOU LADIES!
