I have.. ahem.. some blingy tastes when it comes to my dress. I tried on a beaded/crystal sash with my dress and I loved it, it just completed the look. But it was $200+!! I looked at ones on etsy, and random websites, but the ones in my range just aren’t as pretty. Has anyone DIYed this stuff? I was thinking of matching it with a crystal headband instead of a veil, or perhaps a fascinator (we’re having a bit of a peacock theme), does anyone know of anyone that has made these successfully? Thanks!!

Do you have photos of the ones you like? I just bought a sash for $29 to match my shoes… The sales lady suggested adding a crystal/sparky broach in the middle of the front (just loop the sash through the pin part of the brooch) and then tie the sash in a bow in the back. It actually looked really cute and didn’t pull attention away from the millions of ruffles on my dress. She also picked out a sparkly necklace, a sparkly few haircombs, and a veil w/ small crystals- all of which matched the brooch!

I DIY’d mine and I think my hairpiece looked as good or better than what you can get on etsy.

You know I didn’t think of just adding a brooch to a sash, that’s a good idea! I was thinking I was going to try and go all out and hand bead this entire thing, but I bet a simple brooch with a nice satin sash would be very pretty 🙂
Mrs. DG- Good to know! I look at them and I’m like “oh I can make that” But I say that about a lot of stuff and it never happens 😛 Perhaps I’ll give it a try!
