To belt or not to belt! Help!

Help! I initially purchased my dress loving the simplicity, especially after trying on so many lace and heavily embellished dresses! Now I’m doubting the lack of bling. I need some thoughts on whether or not to do a small rhinestone belt or not. (Pictured is the sample size and does not fit well....

    Honestly I say no... only because you can up do that dress with some beautiful sparkly bling like a bracelet necklace earrings you dont need anything else for your dress just accessories

    I think a belt could be a great addition.

    We’re dress twins!
    When trying on the dress they put a belt on it and it really completes the whole look so I say belt it!

    As a photographer I would personally suggest to have a small belt on it. Wear it for the wedding and then take it off for the reception. It'll be like having 2 dresses in 1. As long as YOU love it is ALL that matters. It's YOUR day. "Your the bride, you decide" is what I KEEP hearing from everyone in regards to my wedding.

    I vote no belt! If anything I think if you wear a bit more flashy jewelry it will complete the look.

    Your dress is very gorgeous! And the beautiful thing about a simple dress is that you can accessorize! You can do a dramatic makeup look without it clashing. You can wear some gorgeous jewelry to bling it up. I personally think a belt would look stunning!

    I think this dress is absolutely gorgeous the way it is! It’s really just about if you want some sparkle, but I definitely think the dress shines on it’s own.

    No belt. The dress speaks volumes. If you add a belt, the dress is now wearing you. And ideally you should be wearing the dress. You want people to look at YOU not just your dress.

    Tbh I would decorate the edges of the sleeves. It adds bling but doesn’t ruin the beautiful line that this dress is creating with your body.

    I almost got this dress!! Soo beautiful. I tried it on with a few different belts and I really like a super sparkly/beaded belt with it.

    I LOVE your dress. I don’t think it’s too simple. You could always put on a belt for the reception or for ceremony and take off during reception! But your dress is beautiful I don’t think you need anything else.

    Team Belt! I love the dress itself but if you feel like something is missing, go ahead and add something. You don't want to look back years later feeling some type of regret that you didnt add some bling.

    I vote no belt because it’s so perfect as is! But maybe a veil with some embellishments?
