I tried on a belt with my dress and really fell in love with it. I love the fact that it’s super thin and it adds a little bit of sparkle without doing too much or distracting from my dress. But is it’s almost $300 way more than I would ever spend on a belt lol. I’ve been looking for an alternative but haven’t found anything that looks similar (thin, blingy, no ribbon).
Would it be insane if got the belt? Should I keep looking for a cheaper alternative? (has anyone seen anything similar?)

First of all you look amazing in that dress! I love the belt! If you can afford it I would say to go for it but you might shop around for a belt. Tons of belts on Etsy.

There are similar style belts on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/search?q=thin%20crystal%20belt. Not sure what the quality would be but worth checking out. Ask yourself, on the day after you’re married, would you rather have the belt or $300. Whatever you say is your answer.

clairhuxtable : You look stunning! I think the belt looks dainty enough (since it is thin) yet still brings a wow factor from the bling. It’s beautiful, I vote yes purchase. I’m sure with some searching you can find a budget option though if you are tight on money

It’s beautiful! Have you looked at BHLDN? They have several thin sashes/belts that I wouldn’t consider inexpensive but they are less than $300.

- Would it be absolutly insane if got the belt? — Yup.
- Should I keep looking for a cheaper alternative? — Yup.
- (has anyone seen anything similar?) — Nope but I bet someone here has.
J/K, kinda? If it’s in your budget and you won’t regret it later, go for it. Me though, I could not convince myself to pay $300 for a belt I know for a fact I’d wear once, even for my wedding. I’m just too practical. That dress looks beautiful on you in any case!

Daisy_Mae : I’m pretty pratical too which is why I haven’t bought it yet and keep going back and forth lol
I wish I could find the exact same thing, minus the swarovski crystals, and the $300 price tag.

So…I wouldn’t spend $300 on a belt even if I had money coming out my ears. That being said, that looks GORGEOUS with your dress. I would find a similar belt for sure! I can’t wait to see your whole look 😍

clairhuxtable : So I’m pretty practical but when it came to my dress i splurged a bit on accessories. No belt but hair piece $165. I do wish I’d shopped around some but it was perfect. So if you can afford it go for it!!! If not look around etsy!
