Okay, so I’ve found my dress and mantilla veil (pictured below). I really love the simplicity of it. My wedding theme is a simple, old fashioned, white wedding. I also got a lace bolero jacket to go with it (and to hide my arms.) It is built with a sash on the waist. I’m not sure if I should stick with the sash that is built onto the dress or cover it with one of these options below. I don’t want to be too busy, and want to keep an old-fashioned charm. What do you guys think? (some of the options are in ivory, but I would be getting them in white)
This is the back of my bolero, without the bling.

You don’t need a sash, but if you decide to get one I would get a beaded sash to stick with your vintage theme. I voted for Sash 4 if you like flowers. It’s simple and won’t be too much with your bolero. Overall, it’s a lovely dress. Congrats!

I would do a thin, beaded sash or sash 4.

I think the ones you posted don’t go with the dress. I agree with PPs about a (thin) beaded sash.

I like the one you are wearing in the picture or #2!

If you go with a sash, I think you should be placed a little higher, at your smallest point so it will elongate your body!

I would go with a crystal sash, I wouldnt put a lace sash on a lace dress.

Beautiful dress choice for yourself! Yay! The built in sash is great because it accentuates your figure perfectly. I think anything else would call unnecessary attention to that part of the dress, whereas now the eye is drawn up and down, lengthening you very nicely. Stick with it as-is and perhaps add some pizzazz with earrings, necklace and bracelet. 🙂

I think all these sashes have way too much going on. You don’t need one at all, but if you must, get something less bulky. The idea is to define your waist, and if you put a whole bunch of stuff there, it will do the exact opposite.

Thanks you guys! I think I am going to keep my dress the way it is! I fell in love with it the way it is, and that’s the dress I want my Fiance to see me walk down the aisle in. Simple and Perfect!

Is there any way to move the sash up a bit? I think it would be more flattering to your waistline

@Jamcnair: Thanks for your input! The sash is actually made into the dress. I don’t think there is any way to move it up. I don’t think I chose the best photo to put up, but I really like where it fell. I tried some where the waist was accented both higher and lower, but this one was my favorite by far. These photos were from August and I’ve lost about 15 pounds since then, plan on losing 10-20 more before fitting, and think once I have it fitted it will look perfect. It is supposed to fit like this:
Here is another, I think better, photo of the dress on moi:
Also, my ACTUAL dress, the one that was specifically ordered for me (below) seems that it might have the sash tad higher. When they take it in, like I said, I think it’s going to be perfect.

I’m not sure that the current sash is hitting you in the best spot. Is it moveable? I would move it up a touch.
