Would a beaded belt make my dress too "busy"?

Without seeing it it is hard to say, but I’m going to say it will be too busy.  That is a lot of detailing already.  I’m not even loving the satin option there – it isn’t cohesive with the style and fabric and sticks out like a sore thumb rather than enhancing the dress.  It looks like the skirt of the dress doesn’t quite start at your natural waist and is about an inch to an inch and a half lower than where the sash sits – based on the pic provided.

WOW what a beautiful dress!!! I like the satin sash that you have now! I think a beaded sash would be too busy IMO

A beaded belt would definately be too much. With all the lace going on it would get lost amongst it and wouldnt really be a feature. I would get a wider satin belt as you ahve a great waist so it will help show that off.

A slightly wider more matt belt would do it I think. And as

That satin belt gets huge no from me. Your dress is beautiful and has lots of details. I wouldn’t do a thicker satin belt either. Looks like your dress has some pearls on it. If you really really want a belt I say try to find a thin pearl belt. Otherwise I really don’t think your dress should be worn with a belt.

january02 :  I am glad you did 🙂 I feel like during wedding planning we feel like we have to purchase everything and totally forget that less is more. I have recently seen so many lovely brides wearing big belts that are very unrelated to their gowns. I feel like sales reps are pushing brides to purchase as many item as they can and belts are one of them. Btw I think I tried your gown while I was looking for my gown :))
