@iluvmy67cuda:  Do you have a photo of yourself in your gown?  That may help us give you input.

@melisslp:  +1

I would say not all the way to the floor though bc of the veil, but I’d have to see it I think

I’m thinking long, maybe not floor length but knee may work.

I just tried my finished sash on last night and it stops a bit above my feet. I didn’t want anything longer because I’d be stepping on it (or other people would be) once my dress is bustled.

I think the sash length is perfect!

I think I’d cut it so that it doesn’t go past that last pickup before the train. Maybe even just a bit longer than the ruching on the butt area (like midway between that and the last pickup before the train?)

BTW – your dress looks BEAUTIFUL!   I wish I could see the front!!

Here’s my model picture with my sash, which was NOT pink. The seamstress snipped the bottom where it was tacked down to the train so it would bustle nicely.

ETA: wow, I totally said that like I hated pink or something. Mine was champagne, I guess I just don’t like the color on the model!

I think it would be cute to do it short!

@futuremrsk18:  Thank you! I’ve posted the front a bunch on the site, so it’s out there 🙂 And I’m sure I’ll post it again after my final fitting in September. I’m also considering cutting it where you suggested since I did want to wrap my bouquet in it. Thanks for your suggestion!

@Bride2BeeVA28:  OMG, I just stalked your profile to find pix.  I LOVE IT.  What a beautiful dress!  Please tell me the designer, I want to add it to my list of dresses to try on!

ETA:  Is it Enzoani?  I just saw that you wrote that.  Because, I AM IN LOVE WITH ENZOANI dresses.

@futuremrsk18:  It is! It’s Enzoani Damas from the Blue line. I ordered it without the beading and added the sash.

@Bride2BeeVA28:  It looks MUCH better without the beading!  I’m wondering if I can get it in a true sweetheart.  OMG, I love it so much!!

@Bride2BeeVA28:  Thanks for posting the pics.  ~  I think it might look better a bit shorter, say 12-14 inches shorter (just before the last pick up).
