The belt doesn’t go, it’s more of a yellow-ish pinkish ivory, I’d look for a Swarovski appliqué on an ivory ribbon. Can she make the bodice more of asweetheart shape?

@baracuda:  I think you look beautiful. The dress looks fine to me. I’m not mad on the pink sash, but the dress is lovely.

@baracuda:  I’d change from a necklace to some drop earrings and the belt can be changed to a ribbon of some sort(I love blush…but you don’t have to do that colour). Overall your dress is gorgeous, and you are gorgeous and I would let that shine.

I think the sash before was up higher?  If that makes sense, and maybe not that sash you’re wearing in the alteration picture.  Other than that I think it looks great!

I say no necklace or a tiny diamond solitare necklace. Your neck as bare as possible because It makes the eye go towards the beautiful dress and not at the huge necklace. The belt look a lil purple? I would go with a less “blingy” belt, or none at all. I think the dress is gorgeous and fits your shape well!

@baracuda:  I agree with PP as your dress has more of a cooler silvery tone and the belt is a little more on the warmer side. I would say a more silvery toned below would work best. I know you said you weren’t wearing that necklace but I say skip one all together and do earrings and a bracelet. I think the overall dress looks beautiful on you…..just switch up the accessories and you are set!!

@baracuda:  That is SO pretty on you! I love the first pic of your hair up. I’m not too crazy about the necklace and the sash.

I would go with a silvery belt instead, like a Swarovski type… skip any sort of necklace but do a great statement earring, bracelet, and a dramatic veil.

@baracuda:  That dress is beautiful, and so are you! And you look gorgeous in it. I agree with what PPs have said about the sash/belt in the “after” picture. I much prefer the one in the “before” picture. I also noticed someone mentioned possibly altering the top into a sweetheart sort of neckline. If that’s do-able, I think it would be stunning.

beautiful girl and beautiful dress!! I have to say though that I do agree with some other posters about the belt in the after picture….maybe try it without or a different one? I think it makes it look like your waist isn’t defined….if that makes sense??? I think the chest portion looks good in the after picture also…very tasteful!

Congrats!!

I’m not a fan of that belt on your dress, but you look great!
