Hi everyone! I was hoping for some advice on sashes! The style of my dress once altered will look more like the first picture (a little more fitting) but I can’t decide on the sashes! My girls are wearing plum, but does the colored sash make it too casual? I need something blingy because I feel a little plain. Any advice or thoughts is greatly appreciated!!

@Buzz_like_a_bee123: It might just be the lighting change between the two pics but I really prefer the purple. Can’t quite put my finger on why tho….

@Buzz_like_a_bee123: I really LOVE the purple one, but I’m partial because I’m doing a purple sash too!

Purple for sure! I don’t think its too casual at all!

@Buzz_like_a_bee123: I’m going to be the odd one out here, but I really like the second one. I think it’s beautiful, and adds to the dress without stealing the focus. I don’t think you need to match the bridesmaids.
That said, I also think the purple is really nice, and would give you a very cohesive wedding party look, so you can’t go wrong either way.
Love your dress – the lace is gorgeous!

I love the purple sash, but I wore one with my dress for the reception. I did no sash for the ceremony, then added what i lovingly called my “party sash” after the ceremony was over.
ETA: Can you do a plum one to match your girls? It looks like the purple one is a lighter tone.

I like the second brown one, too. I’m just not a fan of darker belts because I think they distract the eye away from the dress. But that’s just totally my personal opinion.

I would suggest adding a poll to this thread.
I like the second sash better. It’s more traditional and looks a lot more bridal. I like how it’s symmetrical. I normally like a sash with side accents, but the beading (or whatever it’s called) looks like it’s slowly encroacing on to your stomach. If your flowers aren’t all white, you would also need to make sure they match the purple sash.

Thanks for all of the opinions! These aren’t sashes I purchsed just what the bridal store had in when I was trying on! The dress already has kind of a belt built in (well just stitched) that is ivory and plain. I was thinking of doing just that for the church and the purple for the reception, but I haven’t completely decided.

@Buzz_like_a_bee123: I have to say, normally I don’t love colour sashes because I find that they are too over the top and take away from the dress but in this case I love the purple sash! I think it makes the dress pop! I do like your idea in the past post about wearing the ivory one for the ceremony and the purple for the reception!! Fun way to change it up to make it more fun. That is if it’s in your budget to do so 🙂 And you wouldn’t be able to sew the sash onto the dress..

I love the purple, but I am also biased as my dress has a purple sash too!

I like the placement of the crystals on the purple one

First of all, your dress is stunning! I think the purple is better because the color contrast gives you a defined small waist. That being said, the second one looks great too. You’re in the lucky spot of having no bad options!
