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....

    I say no belt. But if you’re on the fence, try getting a belt you can try out, and return if you want to.

    I think a belt would be pretty. Would add just a bit of glitz without taking away from the simplicity.

    I think it might depend on your other accessories if you're going with any. Hairpiece? Earrings? Necklace? Veil? If any of those have bling, then I'd add the belt...but if you're going for all around simplistic and timeless, I'd definitely vote no belt. I think its gorgeous just the way it is. Let us know what you plan to do! If the belt is cheap you could always get it and see how it looks.

    I also agree with the PP that said statement necklace. You have a BEAUTIFUL neckline. I'd want the attention to be there.

    I think the dress is beautiful without a belt...and do keep in mind that your makeup may add that bit of shimmer and glamorous to your dress, along with your jewelry if you're wearing some statement pieces.

    I think no belt. If you want bling I would get a statement piece of crystal for your neck or a beautiful pair of drop crystal earrings or both. The dress is stunning and I think it should stand alone.

    I’d love it with a belt! Mine is also fairly simple, and I’m doin a bling belt and love the pop it gives to an otherwise classic, clean dress. To belt or not to belt! Help! 1

    I think you should shop for your headpiece and other jewelry first. If you still feel you need something else, then try on other embellishments on the dress. It doesn’t have to be a full belt.... you could just have a broach at the waistline..... things to consider. I would advise that you try jewelry and other accessories first. It’s a very individual decision and once you have everything picked out, your jewelry that is, then you will be able to decide. Good luck -and trust your instinct! It’s your day!
