wlphilli:  You can go to a fabric store that sells bridal fabrics or a millinery store and choose the appliques you like yourself. They can be attached to a simple satin ribbon.

You can get individual appliques or clusters that have a fusible backing.

You can hand sew this yourself or have a local seamstress do it for you.

If you can’t find the appliques locally, you can buy them online.

wlphilli:  Where are you having alterations done (if you have any?)  My seamstress told us that she could make any sash we wanted, just to bring in a photo for a quote, or if we found something we liked but it wasn’t a sash bring in the supplies and she’d make it work.  Is this an option?  (She’s making a sash for my MOH’s dress.)

The place I contacted about alterations can actually make sashes like this from scratch. Any design. Have you asked your alterations place for ideas? They may be able to help.

wlphilli:  I agree that $350 is bit too much for a sash, but I understand how hard it can be to find something similar.  Especially since it looks like a specific shade of ivory too.  Have you tried Tradesy or eBay to see if someone is selling that particular sash used?

wlphilli:  Ugh, how frustrating!  I know you may be dead set on that style sash but if you can’t find anything, maybe you can get your seamstress to remove the flowers from your existing sash and replace it with a rhinestone broach or two.

Nordstrom has sashes like that. Their return policy is so ridiculous you could literally wear it and return it noone would bat an eye. 

I got a hole in my Long Champ and I brought it back to the store a few years later without a receipt. They handed me a brand new bag and I walked out.


Here is a similar style from nordstrom:<br /><br />

wlphilli:  Find another bridal store you do like and look at their samples. If you find a sample you like, ask if you can buy the sample at a discounted price. That’s what I did!
