    Personally I am not feeling it. They’re both quite “busy” so I think you either need a plain sash to go with the dress or a plain dress to go with that sash!

    The sash is a bit busy for the dress, the dress is beautiful though.

    I would like the sash better with no flowers

    No I don’t think it does suit the dress. I think something more delicate would look much better and without the flower!

    I think you should do one or the other and not both on the sash. I’d prefer no flowers.

    I think a delicate sparkle sash would look best…

    Your sash looks like someone tried to combine two different belts and this is the unsuccessful product. (sorry!)   If I were you, I’d either just stick with the rhinestones or just the flowers, and add more flowers or beads to make the sash fuller.

    No. I would take off the flowers.

    I agree with the PPs – I’d take off the flowers. I think it does kind of overwhelm everything.

    @uphoric:   Now that pic you just posted is pretty!  I think the color contrast in the belt there makes it unique and pretty against the white of the dress.  Also, the flowers on the other belt is flatter and has a more “shabby chic vintage” look to them that makes it work while the one on yours is too “puffy” and perfect, and it looks “cheap” against the white of your dress.  Your dress is elegant and sophisticated, and although the beading on your belt works it’s those flowers that is cheapening the whole look a bit.  Maybe it you swapped out the flowers it could make a big difference. 🙂

    @uphoric:   Yeah that could work!  Here are some pictures of the fabric flowers I was talking about.  I compared the two pictures again and if you look at the second pics (w/ champagne flowers) the beaded flower design and the fabric flowers are similar in size (the fabric flowers being only a little bit bigger).  On your sash, your fabric flowers are much bigger than your beaded design, and it’s throwing off the symmetrical and cohesiveness of the sash.  If you change out the fabric flowers on yours to one that’s smaller, less puffy, is more “vintage” in style, and one that’s in an ivory color would make it really pretty.
