@MrsB22:  Your dress is amazing!

Here are my thoughts – first, for the hair, I would speak to the person you pick for your hair and see if they can do some sort of an updo that you can either take down for the reception or something where it flows around your face more than a traditional updo, something a bit softer, so it’s sort of an in between an updo and a down do or a half down.  I actually don’t think you have to wear your hair up with that dress.  It has a very nice low back which will be seen regardless of how you wear your dress and I personally think it will look better with your hair down than up. 

As for the beaded sash, I’m sure if you keep looking, you’ll find something you like.  Look at some pre-owned sites that might have the beaded sash you liked, maybe you can find it used? 

Good luck!

We’re dress twins!  I don’t have any pics of me in the dress yet, but I’m picking it up in December.  It looks great on you!  FWIW, I’m also concerned about my hair.  I feel better with my hair down, but have decided to go for an updo because I think it suits the dress better.

Beautiful dress!  I agree with the PP that you could possibly find another sash on Etsy. I’ve seen quite a few really beautiful ones, for much less than $1200.  

For your hair, maybe your can do a loose low “updo”.  I’m choosing to do my hair like this because I’m not a fan of the traditional updo.  I agree that the dress suits the hair to be up and back.

What about something like this:

What color is that dress? It’s gorgeous! I hope you go with a similar sash, it really adds a wonderful element to the dress.

Check out MillieICARO shop on Etsy for sashes.

You chose a beautiful dress. I agree with previous poster, try a loose updo or even a side swept chignon.

I don’t have any suggestions on the hair or sash, but I just want to say that dress looks amazing on you! So beautiful!
