You look great in the dress.  I agree about the belt, it really is not needed.  The back looks really pretty.  I have a train that is much too plain for my tastes and wish it looked more like yours.  Again, I have to say you look great.

That dress looks incredible on you, and I agree with you and the others that the belt is definitely not needed!

However, unlike a previous poster, I agree with you about the back. I just…don’t like it. The pick ups (is that what they are?) are awkward and way too over the top and cumbersome for such an elegant, simple (but not plain!) dress. I think it would look amazing if those things could be untacked and left to just flow down the back. It might make the train super long, but (in my mind, anyway, because tailors are magicians), that could be fixed!

My dress had slight pick ups that I wasn’t crazy about and it turned out that they were just folds of fabric tacked up with a simple stitch. The woman snipped them off and we figured out which ones to ditch / keep as she went and it quickly turned into something simpler but much more “right” with the rest of the dress. I have no idea what it would take for the back, or if it’s possible, but I think it would look perfect if it could be let down. 

However (again), I don’t think that the back of it ruins the dress, especially if it’s something that you don’t mind enough to change the dress / find another. So please don’t think that I’m saying it’s not right for you! As I said, I think the dress is absolutely stunning on you!

that dress looks great on you.  very figure flattering.  i would opt for no belt.  it’s really not needed at all with that dress.  spend that money on the veil or shoes instead.

You look amazing in that dress and the dress looks amazing.

I´d never think, that you are a plus size bride. The dress is so flattering for you.

Congrats on that choice.

It looks amazing.  I agree with ditching the belt.
