    NO! It is too big, widens your waistline and takes away from the timeless elegance. : (100 votes)

    It is okay but I think the simple 5-row rhinestone belt looks better. : (38 votes)

    I think the brooch bouquet is enough bling but if you want a bit of sparkle I think a very thin line of glitter, like a chain or a single row of crystals similar to the ones in the first belt. I think anything too big will take away from your awesome (truly awesome) silhouette and the sparkle of your bouquet.

    It sounds like you really want a big belt and I know I have really simple taste. I think a super super thin one will flatter you, the big ones (as you said in your poll options) add thickness. A plainer backdrop will make your bouquet pop too and a thin line of sparkle is very subtle and elegant.

    Your dress is gorgeous and I think you can find something unique and statement in between the 1st rhinestones and the flower belt. I don’t think the flowers do wonders for your tiny waist.

    Can you wear the smaller crystal belt for the ceremony and then switch the the fun flower one for the reception? 

    I personally really like the flower belt, but yeah, it might be overwhelming when you combine it with your brooch bouquet.  But you won’t be carrying the bouquet on the dancefloor!

    I love your taste for everything you’ve chosen so far for your wedding!

    I hate to tell you this, but I’m not feeling that flower belt.  It’s so huge on your waist that I’m not sure it’s highlighting your waist the way you want it to! That’s the right concept, but maybe something a little smaller?

    I actually like the look of the 5-row, but maybe something just a hair wider, what do you think about this 8-row?:

    Or this one, which gives you the wider look you want, but will be much more flattering IMO:

    Also, if you’ve seen a sash that’s perfect but it’s expensive, buy it if you know you’ll love it. Instead of buying a bunch of less expensive ones that aren’t right.

    I love love love the flower belt but I do think with a brooch boquet it might be too much going on.

    I am with the simple belt for ceremony then flower belt for reception camp! The second belt that Over the Moon posted is really pretty… simple but still has a bit of a design.

    I think the belt is too big for the dress. It seems like it’s covering up your waist when it should be accentuating it. You’re beautiful though! Sorry to leave a negative comment . . .

    I like the flower belt it looks like it’s part of the dress. The silver one looks like a normal  “belt”

    now, I’m all about bling and I LOVE FLOWERS

    but I’m going to be honest – that flower belt is too much.  It almost looks like a joke.

    the dress is very simple, but I like that… I think the flower belt is too much and overtakes the simplicity of the dress, the first sparkle belt that is very simple, is a better choice, but too “skinny” so my vote is keep looking for something more inbetween.

    You have such a beautiful figure with a tiny waist.  Personally, I think the flower belt totally hides that.  Go with something more simple like the sparkly belt pictured above the flower belt.

    I agree! The flower belt, while pretty, does not flatter your lovely figure at all! I like the first belt a lot better.

    The style of the belt is fine, but it’s too wide and hides your waist, so it isn’t very flattering.
