I honestly love it. Honestly love it. Is the belt your size or does it tie in the back – it does make you look a little wide thru the mid section just a little. I don’t think I would have even noticed that until you mentioned it.

Both belts maybe – if you can afford it? The first one for the ceremony and the second one for the reception.

Did you get the veil in your picture cause I’m loving it with the dress – the perfect style.

I love it too! Really, I do. I have a really similar style of dress and have doubts about it too! I think it’s one of those dresses that you commit to, and it looks fabulous. But unless you commit, you’ll look un-confident and it won’t work. I personally like the other belt better than the flower one, but the differences aren’t major enough to not work…just remember, you got to sell yourself in the dress! (:

I LOVE it.  Of course, my dress also has clean lines with some embellishment and is a similar shape…so, I guess it’s my style 🙂
But, I think it looks great on you and i LOVE the belt — it defines your waist and adds some style.

You look great in it!  You must post pics when you get it fitted, I bet it will look amazing!

Just get some spanx and tie that belt tight.  Or get a black belt, which will create dark space and the illusion of a tiny waist (but seriously you are tiny as is).  That dress is so fab on you!

Even though it’s a simple dress I don’t think it’s too plain by any means. It definitely makes a statement and I agree with PP – you have to have confidence to wear that dress.

Again, it’s a gorgeous dress and I love it.

I love the dress on you!

#1-Definitely not too plain in my opinion…but I tend to prefer the clean & classic look of dresses without much lace/beading.

#2-I do not think the belt makes you look too wide at all, I actually think it accentuates your waist, but it’s hard to tell for sure since I haven’t seen a picture of you without it.  From the pictures that you shared, I definitely prefer the belt that you have on with your dress.  I think the other belt would stand out too much.

I love it – it’s a gorgeous simple dress that makes a wow statement.  I don’t think you look big at all.  I like the belt/sash you already chose.  The only thing I can suggest that might make you feel better is shifting the sash like half an inch up and then it will sit at the smallest part of your waist.  That’s what Stacy and Clinton always say anyway.

I think it’s beautiful.  It’s figure flattering, and the belt by no means makes you look wide.  I think you made a great choice!

I forgot to address the belt question!

I really like the second one, but wonder what all of the tulle would look like on the dress…do they have it in salon so you can try it on before ordering it?

i love the design of the dress, i really like the hemline and how it flutters along the ground-its a really nice look to me…. but i’ll be honest and say im not in love with the belt in your pics, it seems a bit too flouncy for me and takes the focus off the dress and your figure to me

but it is a beautiful dress!

It looks beautiful on you. But personally, I like the second belt better.

I’m more of an embellishment type of person but I love that dress on you. It works very well with your body. If YOU think it’s too plain, maybe wear some dangly earring that match the belt to add some more sparkle to the whole ensemble.

I love your belt also, much more so than the second one. I think the tulle around the second belt would hide your waist more and increase your worries about your midsection looking wide (which it doesn’t).
