I’ve attached pictures of my dress (by wtoo, ivory color, taffeta material). I’ve been looking for a sash to replace the big flower (I’m a pretty petite person and the flower is kind of overwhelming). The space is about 4″ wide. I was thinking of sheer organza for the ribbon type for the sash. The first sash below is 2.25″ wide, while the second is 1.25″ wide. Which one do you think would look best? 🙂 Just want to see if anyone has any advice on how to find the best matching sash. btw, these are Kirsten Khuen sashes. Feel free to suggest other designs 🙂 Thanks!

I think the wider one will look more balanced in that space.

I am not sure you need a sash on the dress, but I think a wider one would look nicer. I think a sash with less beading would complement your dress better. Something with smaller flowers and beads would be pretty.

I like the wider one. As iHeartCupcakes said, it fills in the space better.

The first one will def compliment your dress better. You don’t want too much detail in the sash to take away from your dress. Also, since the area is wider around your waist the first one will fit it better.

I think the narrower one would look better. The narrow one would look more purposeful, whereas, I think the wider one would look like it wasn’t made wide enough for the space it had to fill.

i definitely like the second one the best. i don’t know if i care much for the design on the first one.

Thanks for all the suggestions. So here’s what I’ve been thinking:
I read other sash advice on these boards that said that having a 4″ sash to take up the whole space looks best on taller girls because a wide sash would make a short girl look even shorter. (I’m 5’2″). I think that makes sense (after I took another look at pictures with a 4″ sash on me in a bridal shop. haha.)
I am worried the narrow one won’t fill up the space as well, too, but I adore the design 🙂 (plus it looks like it can be reusable on a non-bridal dress). The good thing about both is that they cost the same – 120 which is really as much I can spend on this.
The 2.25″ design is a pretty mellow design and won’t hog the show because it is a simple dress and I don’t plan on wearing big sparkly jewelry. It’s beachside too..
sparks – I haven’t considered a sash with smaller flowers in it.. I’ll start paying attention to those now :). So you might see another post like this haha
