I haven’t bee on here in months and had even forgot how to write a post. However I need your help. I get married next Friday and can’t decide the final details for my dress. I have two sashes, one is black velvet and the other is light pink silk. My dress is by the british designer Alan Hannah (silk dress- Giovana). I love my dress even though it is very simple but I liked how the sashes added a little something to it. My bridesmaid has only seen the black one and liked it but I also like the soft pink which goes with our pale pink and navy theme and light pink avalanche rose bouquet.I know it’s possible to switch sashes through the day but I want to know which one to walk down the aisle in and to have most photos in. I have attached photos but have just realise that I don’t have any photos without a sash on so I uploaded a photo of it hanging. I will also be wearing a pearl necklace, drop pearl earings, the long veil (in photos) with a tiara/clip with delicate crystals on.
So please can you help me decide if I should wear black, pink or no sash at all.
Thank you so much bees
p.s hope these photos have attached properly

Out of the 2, I prefer the pink. But to be totally honest, neither really does anything for me. Have you thought about a sash that has some crystals and pearls?
ETA: beautiful dress by the way!

I prefer the black one, I think it makes your waist look tiny. However, I also like the idea of the pink one matching your colors. So, I guess I’m no help at all!

I’m not overly keen on either of those..I hope you don’t mind me saying that. I think one with some crystals would be so classy on that dress!

@Lillyrose: ohhh what about that? A crystal belt maybe very nice.
the pink is nice n your colors but it reminds me of a little girl. The black is stunning but not your colors.
I like the idea of a crystal belt. However I really like your dress

I agree with the suggestion that a crystal belt would look better than the other two 🙂 The black is too harsh to me…and the pink is just a little too child-like.

I voted black because I love it the best, but both look nice. I would say do most pics with the black & some couples pictures with pink. Wear the pink for your ceremony & black for your reception. They are small to carry around (maybe transport them rolled on a spool or toilet paper roll to prevent creases) and easy to change, so go for both! My dress has black accents with a blush lining under lace, and my reception colors are ivory, black, & blush, and my maids will be in navy, so we have very similar colors!

I agree with PPs, there needs to be more embellishment to the sashes

It depends on the look you’re going for. The black is very sleek and elegant. The pink is soft and romantic. What feeling are you trying to evoke?

Black velvet makes your waist look tiny but it seems kind of off for August to me. It’s a winter fabric and not really in keeping with your colors.
I’d love to see a beaded sash or the pink one with embellishment n the middle.

Thank you for your replies. I’m afraid there is no chance of me buying a different sash or adding to the ones I have but I appreciate the ideas. With this in mind do you think no sash instead then? I have to admit I really dislike crystals and extra beading etc. and this is why the sashes and my dress are very simple. My 4 year old neice will also be wearing a darker pink sash with a bow, would that make the pink sash worse as I’m matching a child?
I really appreciate feedback thank you.
@HonoraryNerd: Thank you for your reply, I think you see the colours in a similar way to how I see them. To be honest I would happily go for elegant or romantic but as sme bees pointed out the pink might look childish which I certanly don’t want.

What about the navy sash? The light pink sash is very childlike and just vanishes, I prefer the drama of the black one but not the actual color…so what about navy?

I really like the pink one. It looks very romantic! The black one looks nice as well, but my eye immediately goes to the sash instead of YOU with the black one.

I voted pink (I like when stuff matches!), but the black makes your waist look so TINY that you couldn’t go wrong with it, either.
