I think I bought my dress too soon. I think it was 10 months to our wedding and I bought the first dress I fell in love with at the first store I went to because it was the last one, it fit me perfectly, and at the time, I felt that it was meant for me. But that feeling has worn off, and I’ve had major dress envy for the past few months. I’m not going to buy a new dress, but I’m wondering if I should add a mauve sash; I love mauve and it’s one of our wedding colors but it’s been so hard to find anything mauve; i tried so hard to find the right mauve shoes to no avail, not even mauve fabric for diy projects. I kinda picture the sash tying in the back and the ends going all the way to the floor. What do you think? Sash or no sash? If sash, how should it be tied?
Sorry I don’t have pics of me in it, but here’s my dress.

perhaps you could not wear the sash for the ceremony and then add it as a little extra surprise for the reception…i like the sash tied in the front…

I am not a sash person, but I think it looks stunning with the taupe sash. I’m not a fan of the mauve sash.

Don’t worry, I had major dress envy too. Just had my first fitting and fell in love again. I think the dress looks great without the sash.

I’m not a sash fan, so I vote to leave your dress as is.

That dress is stunning as it is. So pretty. I would let the dress stand on its own.

I think your dress is stunning as is. You have nothing to worry about.

I love your dress the way it is, not sure a sash would add anything to it. I also think you will fall in love again when you have your fitting (which should be soon!). I would buy some wide ribbon in the closest color and play around with it at your fitting. If you like the way it looks you can start looking for one. Lots of girls have gotten theirs from etsy.

I think your dress is perfect as it is. However I do like the look of the mauve sash tied in the back.

It’s a pretty even split so far: 46% no sash, combined 51% sash, 2% other (weird, somehow that only adds up to 99%). Please keep voting!
I so wanted mauve accents: sweater/shawl, shoes, etc., but all I have is a mauve fabric flower for my birdcage. My second choice color was magenta, but that was hard to find too. My shoes ended up being fushia, close enough I guess. My ideal mauve/magenta shoes don’t exist, and I tried so hard. =( I guess this is my last ditch effort to incorporate mauve into my look without spending too much.

What about blush? mauve is my fav color and I’m doing blush and navy colors for my wedding. And my dress happens to be the Karena Royale. I wish I could show you a pic but I can’t upload it for some reason. Anyway, find a mauve sash and do it! I like sashes 🙂 Although I altered the Karena Royale sash to have no bow nad it’s pleated/ruched. It kinda looks like this:
Here are more ideas:

I LOVE your dress. That is the dress I have dress envy for. I totally wish Alfred Angelo had it when I was looking for mine. No sash, go as is in all of its glory.

i think that it is an amazing dress! so pretty. I would go without a sash. Sometimes I feel like sashs add alot to a dress and sometimes not. this dress is a amazing on its own!

I have never seen that dress before…it is gorgeous! Who is the designer? (I think I have dress envy)
Anyway, the dress looks great as-is but if you are set on making it just a little bit different, I would add the sash in front for your reception for some flair and fun. I’m not a big fan of mauve though.
