Hey everyone, I have already bought my dress and am now on the hunt for a belt. Here is my dress without a belt and with one from the salon, as well as a close up:
The first picture is an awful angle, but it’s the only one that I have without the belt on. The consultant was pretty convincing and I thought I was going to buy the one I’m wearing, but it’s over $300 and I can’t justify that cost! The belt I have on with the dress is NOT an option at this point.
Now here is the question. Since there is already beading on the bodice, what kind of belt would look good with it? Here are a couple of options I have been looking at, but I’m afraid it will clash with the other beading.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be any of these, I’m just trying to see what kind of belt would look right with my dress. I definitely want a belt because I feel like the dress looks empty without one. Opinions please?

I think the 4th belt will look the best

Are you wearing the belt in ivory? I think if the first 1 was in white like your dress, it would be fab. It looks like it belongs on the dress!

@jenilynevette: Which belt #1 are you referring to? I edited the post to make it a bit clearer, I am not buying the belt that I tried on with my actual wedding dress. It was wayyyyy too expensive!

@Nurse_Bee: Oh, the belt you tried on with your actual dress was the one I thought was fab.
However, if you decide you like that one, you can always get it made from a chinese shop for cheaper [if you can find an up-close picture of course].

I actually like it wihout any belt. The dress already has a lot of details going on.

@Nurse_Bee: I’d probably go with belt #3 or something really similar. It’s the closest to the original belt you tried on with your dress (that one looked like it was made for that dress, by the way), and I think the details on belt #3 are most similar to the details on your dress.

Here is a better picture of me without the belt on:
Sorry so many pictures, I just want to make sure I’m not dropping loads of money on the wrong belt or any belt at all as they are generally non-returnable 🙁
