So I think I decied on the M. Sottero Ascher dress in the ivory over pearl rose overlay. I’m not crazy about the lilac sash and want to hear how everyone feels about it. I just think it’s way overdone and everyone does the lilac sash. I’m also not fond of just the cluster of crystal in the center of the sash. I’m planning on switching out the sash and having an all crystal Justin Alexander sash instead sewn onto the dress. What do you guys think? I feel it will add more GLAM to the all lace dress.. But I might be wrong. I don’t want to take away from the dress especially if the sash is what makes the dress.. I’ve told a few people my idea and they said if I take away the original sash they no longer like the dress. What do you guys think I should do? I have to order this dress tomorrow!! I also don’t like the corset back and am planning on replacing it with a zipper and getting buttows sewn on to the dress that go down pretty far. I’m also hesitant over the pearl rose underlay of the dress. I’m hoping it doesn’t photograph with a pink hue at my night time wedding.. Any previous Ascher brides tell me your experience with how it photographs?

I also have an emotional attachement to the Pronovia Dietrich…Can’t figure out if I should buy it instead. I really want the dress I choose to photograph well since my wedding isn’t until 7pm in October. I kind of think the WOW FACTOR in the pronovia dissapears in photos..Once family saw it on me in person they were amazed.

I love the Pronovia! I think it’s more unique and special than the other – but the other looks beautiful on you as well. I did a quick google image search and think the Pronovia photographs beautifully….the pro photographer, the hair/make-up, and if you love the dress will all help make it turn out great in photos.
Something that helped me when I was trying on dresses and torn between two was when the sales associate asked me which one felt like the right one when I pictured my DH standing at the end of the aisle. As soon as she said that, I immediately knew the one to pick. They were both beautiful, but one just spoke to me on a deeper level. Go with your gut and what you love, you really can’t go wrong b/c they are both so pretty.

Im not keen on that first sash. It looks great from the front but I dont like it at the back… I have a lace and tulle dress and switched my dress sash for an all crystal one instead of the flower sash that came with it and I love the all crystal sashes. Adds a bit of bling to a lace dress. I prefer the Maggie dress than the pronovias but they both look great on you. I think if the pronovias was sweetheart rather than straight across it would be the winner x

I voted for the Justin Alexander belt but I’d really need to see it on you.
Definitely prefer the pearl rose as well. I wouldn’t worry too much about it looking too pink at night-time, since it’s not very pink to begin with and really quite subtle. The ivory doesn’t show up the details nearly as well.
I don’t think the Pronovias is nearly as flattering. Something about the shape of the pattern actually makes your hips look bigger then they are. I also don’t really like the straight neckline. Basically there’s just a lot going on with it and it’s kind of distracting.

I tried on the ascher and loved the sash on it! To me that made the dress. The ivory sash on it is amazing. I didn’t buy it because the mermaid look didn’t look to good on me but that dress is beautiful and I personally love the sash that comes with it !! good luck!
