    I voted for not doing anything.  I think that both the necklace and sash are really pretty separately and would even look good with some of the dresses, but neither looks good with all of them.  With some of the necklines of the dresses, the necklace wouldn’t look right.  (I’m thinking about the halters.  I personally hate wearing necklaces with halters.)  And then the sash won’t look right with some of the dresses, especially the third one, I think.  Matching bouquets should be enough to tie everything together, IMO.

    I agree with Boston Bee.  I love the dresses, and I love the necklace, but I don’t think it would work for all of them.   I think the sash looks cute with a few, but my Mother-In-Law wore the dress your Maid/Matron of Honor is looking at.  In real life, a sash wouldn’t work well, and I think that would be the case with some of the other dresses too.

    They will be holding the same flowers, i’m guessing, and that will bring the look together.  Same shoe could be a great touch too.  No one will notice the necklace and the sash may look like a cheap fix and emphasize the issue more. 

    They will look great together.

    I agree that the sashes and belts might be too much and might not coordinate well with all of the dresses. I’m doing non-matching dresses with my bridesmaids as well, and what I think I’ll end up doing is have them wear matching earrings and/or shoes.

    I think they will look great without anything. I love a mismatched bridal party.

    What I really want to know is: where can I get that necklace?! It is beautiful and perfect and exactly what I’m looking for!

    My maids are not matching either. I gave them a color palette to work with and actually have no idea what any of them are wearing yet although they’re leaning toward ‘goddessy’ styles in crinkle chiffon.

    We’re thinking about coordinating hair accesories to tie their looks together. (Maybe: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=42035887 or: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36239248). I like these because they would work with up or down hairstyles.

    How about matching earrings?  It’s more subtle than a necklace or a sash, but that could work to tie them together.

    What about a fabulous bracelet or some bangles? My maids will all be mis-matched with dresses chosen from the “fall” colors of our wedding, and I’m leaning towards bracelets. There are many styles and prices to choose from, it’s easy to find multiples of them, they’re visible, and it’s something they’ll all wear again…I might even buy one for myself as a way to have a keepsake of our special bond from that day :o)
