    I wondered the same with my dress. I’ve decided no belt/sash as it was making it almost look empire waist like! 

    I was also thinking that belts although very pretty are very overdone and may even be becoming a tad dated in my very personal opinion. But to each her own! Go for what you love

    Love your dress and you look amazing in it! It would probably look good either way, but I’d lean towards no belt.

    The dress is lovely as is without the belt and you look stunning. I would reconsider leaving the straps as they are and not doing the off the shoulder drape as I think it may take away from the look you already have.

    I think your dress is gorgeous as is and wouldn’t add the belt or change the straps. I like the off the shoulder look also but spaghetti straps are perfect for that dress!

    IMO Leave the straps and add the thin belt, beautiful!

    No belt!! 

    I had a similar issue with my dress and went with a little withe sash with a bow. It made my non existant waist look better. Maybe something like it would give you the effect you want without changing the look of the dress.

    The effect was so subtle it was difficult for me to find a picture where it showed! 

    You can see that it was wider on the sides and back and smaller in the middle

    I would leave the straps  alone and not do a belt . That is a beautifully embellished dress already and needs neither of those additions  imo.

    I doubt your dress will stay up without the straps.

    The more important thing is that you  feel comfortable. On the other hand, i agree that this dress is stunning on you like it is. Not every bride can wear this style but you do. But if you feel it needs to be change, do it if its make you feel more you, more comfortable because it will be beautiful no matter what.
