This is my first post in the dress board! I need your advice on whether or not I should wear a sash with my wedding dress. The dress came with a heavily beaded pearl and crystal sash (that I was not a huge fan of, because from the side view, it came off the dress about 1 inch – stock photos of front and back (pictured below)
My younger sister thinks it looks more bridal elegant with one on (as pictured, crystal 2″ sash from David’s Bridal. Please disregard the bunching just above the sash – I was slouching! shame on me). My concern is that I am 5’5″ with heels (and a very petite frame), and I’m afraid a sash might swallow my torso instead of accentuating or elongating it.
My older sister thinks it looks great without a sash (below)… Although these dim self shots may not do much justice, the dress fits like a glove… just was not sure if it needed a sash to bring it up to wedding standards.
So, looking at the photos, does the hemline (just below my bust, and adjacent to the my elbow in the pictures) need a sash to cover it up? (Does the hemline look too pronounced or naked if left alone?) And if it needs a sash, should it be more slim (like 1″?). Thanks for your feedback!

definitely with! even if it’s not THAT particular sash(if you don’t like it, etc) I think it needs a little something extra!
P.S. you look gorgeous!!

I think it looks great either way. I just don’t really care for that particular sash.

You look fantastic, first of all!
I would vote no sash. Or else a thinner one. But the dress looks great on its own.

I love it both ways! Sash for Ceremony, no sash for Reception? Or Vice Versa?

I vote no sash–the dress is gorgeous on its own and I think going without enlongates your body.

No sash. Gorgeous dress on its own.

Sooo jealous, that is my dream dress! I think it looks gorgeous either way, but I really like the narrower sash.

WITH sash! It looks so beautiful with it, without it, kind of looks a little plain. 🙂

I vote no sash! The dress is beautiful enough it doesn’t need it 🙂
