So, I’ve posted before (in the DIY section I think?) the dark/light blue and white fabric flower pin I made to wear at the reception (to replace the all-white one that comes already on the dress). I don’t know why but I got thinking lately that maybe I should make a colored sash to wear under the pin. Maybe it’s too much… Anyway, here’s some “photoshop” samples I made (ok, actually I used a combo of Paint and MS Word, but they give you the idea.)
For a little more context, the BM dresses and GM vests are royal blue. The MOH/Best Man/FG are in light blue. FI will be wearing a black tux/black vest with a striped tie like this:
So the question is, what color sash should I wear? Dark blue, light blue, black… or none because it’s too much? (the dotted white line is a possible line/strip of rhinestones or something I could find at Joann’s). A black sash with the blue flower would match FI the best I think, but I kind of like the light blue.

I voted no sash, but I absolutely love the flower. It looks fantastic!

ditto. No sash, but keep the flower and the wrap. I love it the way it is!

I voted light blue so it wouldn’t create a line that matched up with your bolero, if that makes any sense? It gives it some seperation 🙂

I liked the black one before I read that it matched your FI. I think that just makes it even better, personally!

If you’re going to go with a sash I’d do the royal blue to keep it cohesive. I think no sash would be better though.

I think it should be sash or flower but not both.

No sash; keep the flower.

Thanks for the feedback so far! Remember also, I won’t have the bolero on for the entire reception. It’ll mostly be when I’m sitting down (like at dinner), or standing in one place for too long… I tend to get cold especially in air conditioning in summer. But I’m aware of the demands of the bride to circulate and talk to people, not to mention DANCE! So I figure I’ll only have it as-needed.

I like it without the sash and with the flower. Very pretty!

Oo, I just got an idea of how it would ‘really’ look before spending time/money on making one. At my next fitting, I could ask to see how some different colors would look on the dress using ready-made sashes. (not sure I want to actually pay for a real one, but again, would give me a good idea of the look.)
Does anyone know how many colors or what selection of sashes David’s typically keeps in stock??
