I need advice! I am trying to decide what belt to have made that will go nicely with my dress. My dress has lace and small pearls and sequence on the bottom and I am getting a lace jacket made (the shall around my arms is to give an idea of what it will look like) which will be off the shoulder and buttoned it the back. I ordered that exact shall in the pic as well as a yard of lace from my dress to make it. The shall also has beads.
So, I want to add a belt, but I don’t want it to be overwhelming with sparkle where you dont know where to look – bottom of dress, belt, jacket.. So I was thinking to do more pearls than rhinestones… but I don’t know! What do you bees think? Which belt should I go with?
Also, should I go with a belt that has a distinct focal, centre point, or one that is more of a beaded belt with no distince centre?

Beautiful dress! I like the very first belt you posted. I like the width, I like the center focus, and I like the balance of pearls and rhinestones.

i like the first one best, but that might just be personal preference…i prefer subtle patterns to distinct, ornate ones.

i really like your dress and you look great in it, but do you need a belt with all that you have going on?

Well the look im going for is of this pronovias. The only difference is that the lace on my dress/jacket has light beading on it and my jacket will be off the shoulder like the one at the bottom. I just love the belt 🙂

honey, you look amazing even without the belt, but if you insist, I would recommend the last one, it looks elegant.

I think the reason why the pronovias dress looks so beautiful with the belt is because the lace is fitted to the bust, whereas yours is loose. You look so beautiful in your dress that you definitely don’t need a belt! (But I love all the belts.)

Your dress looks soo fabulous that the belt would take away from its beauty. If you absolutely have to have some bling, maybe get a pretty brooh?

The lace jacket will be fitted to the bodice. That is just a shall around my arms to give an idea. I am having a jacket similar to the one I posted made out of it. Thanks for all the help bees!!!

Amazing dress. Because of the sweetheart neckline, I think a belt with a center focal-point will look beautiful. I like the belt shown on the purple ribbon, but change the ribbon of course to match your dress 🙂
