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.

I think it’s stunning! Wear it the whole time!

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!

@ApollosAgapi: now I look at the pictures my eye is really drawn to the belt in those pictures which I’m not sure I would want

@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 like it without, but wear the belt at the reception!

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.
