    I am obsessed with belts – I even have one for my own dress.   However, I STILL remember your dress from when you posted that you purchased it. It is STUNNING and I LOVE it wihtout the belt.  It is such a unique timeless dress, and I don’t think a belt is needed at all.

    OP, I voted ‘wear it the whole time,’ but I wanted to second (or third) the votes for affordable etsy options.  You can totally find something just as pretty at 1/3 the cost of the one at the salon.  And that dress is gorgeous!

    I am over the whole belt/sash thing…. (I might be the only one)

    It seems like everyone is doing it….

    I feel that 20 years from now people will look back and be like “oh the belt thing”…. kinda like the 1980’s “oh the big puffy sleeve thing”….

    you have a great figure…. you really do not need the belt……..

    Although I love bead & bling, I really like it without the belt.  I think the belt takes away from the design of your dress – it’s really beautiful

    @Tbblount:  can you get a different belt?

    I like the dress with a belt just not that one. I am in love with your dress and its so pretty and unique and i feel like when i look at the dress with that belt on it, my eyes go straight to the belt. 

    I think if there you picked a different belt thats more suttle

    I hope i didnt offend. I just dont want anything taking away from THE DRESS you know what i mean?

    I dont like the picture with it up close with a belt. My vote goes for no belt/sash even though I usually love them!

    @Tbblount:  If you feel you need a little something at the waistline, how about a simple strand pearl belt? Or thin satin ribbon with white & crystal beads, it would give a little glitz without taking away from the great structure and fabric.

    I’m in total agreement with @JrzyGurl! I usually am always a fan of belts but I think it is too much with this dress. The picture without the belt literally took my breath away.
