Belt/No Belt

I absolutely love looking back at pictures of my dress. However, the one downside is that I don't have many pictures of my dress without a belt. I specifically told the consultant that I wasn't interested in wearing a belt with my wedding dress (I've never been one to look great with a belt around my waist because of my shape). When I fell in love with this dress, the consultant immediately tried to add accessories to make me feel like a bride and the belt was something she kept insisting on. I don't think I want to get a belt because I don't want it to take away from the dress (especially the buttons down the back) but I'd be interested in some opinions! How do all you ladies feel about wearing a belt with your wedding dress? Did anyone feel pressured into getting a belt? Which do you think looks nicer with my dress?

    I think this is what bothers me the most. Doesn't the belt take away from the buttons? I just don't want to make a decision I'll regret. I will need to try on some different belts.

    From my understanding, they would shorten that and attach it to the dress so you wouldn't have the excess in the back! It would just look like part of the dress. That was a concern of mine as well and that's what I was told. Smiley smile

    I had a similar concern with my dress. I like my dress with a belt but not in the back. It will be sewn in the dress so it doesn't interfere with my corset ties in the back. I think you should do what makes you feel better in the dress

    Sounds to me like you don't want the belt. Don't get the belt. I think it looks great either way. The back of that dress is amazing. If later you want to add it you can.

    Although I do agree a different belt would be better.

    The belt really brings it together, in my opinion. They should be able to attach it such that the buttons aren't covered.

    Love your dress! I think the belt adds a very nice touch to it! Gives it an extra spark.

    Wouldn't the seamstress shorten the belt in the back and attach it to the dress? The ends wouldn't hang down and take away from the buttons

    It's def UO but I prefer it without the belt. It sounds like you do to. If so, skip it
