Oh! I have their sash with the pleated front and no embelishments on the back. i think those embelishments on the sash look major cheap :X

have you ever thought of a belt off of etsy with florals? a jeweled belt?

Hmmm I definitely love the front of your dress, but I’m not sure about the sash in the back – it takes away from the gorgeous skirt you have… maybe turn it into just a belt or making it more subtle? I’m sorry I have no pictures to offer for ideas…

By the way, this looks fantastic on you!

I agree I don’t think the sash does anything for you or the dress.  I don’t have pics but I would go with a slightly thinner sash (this one looks too thick and it’s hiding your waist) and a bit more ornate.

I agree with verosara: that sash is just too wide and takes attention away from your gorgeous dress and pretty face 🙂

A thinner sash would look great!

definitely find a belt/sash on etsy…  it will make it more more unique!  That sash just looks so generic.

Something like this maybe?

What about a bolero with white anemones on it?  (The main material of the bolero could be black or white).  Or a flowered belt with them on it?  I love those black and white flowers.

I checked out that etsy seller, nice stuff!  I think a rhinestone belt with black would pop and really add alot to your dress without taking away from it. The sash dosen’t work.

How about adding a thin black satin ribbon along the top of the dress with maybe some offset rhinstones, or small rhinstone buckle or other minor embellishment. instead of around the waist.

If it was me, I would be grabbing that sash and cutting the back of, make it smaller length ways and width.. add a few embellishments.

I think Melissa from the blog a very chocolate life dress is really similar, if not identical. You can see what she did to the sash.


You will need to scroll down to see her dress, got a few pro pics of her wedding first.
