Belts are overrated and a trend I don’t personally understand.  I think your dress looks lovely as-is.  I actually think a belt might make it look odd, with that sweep up on the side.  

That said, the first belt you covet is pretty awesome, too.  I think the second wouldn’t “match” as the flower looks like a totally different material.

Oooooooh i dont know…your dress is absolutely gorgeous!!! Im loving the simplicity, with the ruching, and the flowers…that is an amazing dress girl! I  personally wouldn’t do a belt..but that’s just me. I think the dress & a veil will be plenty. You don’t want to take away from what the dress is already doing & displaying. I like it just the way it is…so pretty.

No sash  , no extra floweres , certainly no bling,  dress just   as it is,  so elegant and chic.

i think the second sash would work, it is pretty but doesn’t take too much away from your already gorgeous dress. 🙂

I love your dress. I personally wouldn’t wear a belt with it. It kind of chops it up in my opinion. However if YOU want a belt go for it. I definitely like the first belt, the others don’t look as quality to me. Hopefully she comes back tomorrow!

I don’t think you should add a sash to this dress, it would be too much. But, if you really want a sash I’d just pick a plain ribbon over something with flowers – flowers on the sash compete with the flowers on the dress.

I think the first belt is stunning, however out of 2 and 3 I prefer 2. I personally like the flowers on your dress, I think it’s a nice touch. If you don’t end up finding the right belt, have you consider a more bold/chunky necklace? This may give you the extra something you are looking for. Overall, beautiful dress!

i am a fan of belt #2! its eye catching but not over the top, and seems to really compliment the elegant simplicity of the gown. gorgeous! 🙂

skunktastic:  At last, I’m not alone!  My dress had a sash because it was designed with one, but I get a little tired of girls adding “blingy” belts to their beautiful dresses!  What happened to simplicity?

I agree. no belt. Or loose the other flowers and add a belt. otherwise too much going on.

I don’t think you need a belt
