I’m having some dress-regret. Okay, not a good discription, perhaps not dress regret, but I’m feeling like my dress is kinda “blah”. It needs just a little spicing up!
So I was thinking of purchasing a sash ( like this –> http://www.etsy.com/listing/85384938/adele-clear-rhinestone-beaded-bridal?ref=v1_other_1 )
My wedding is going to be pretty formal – open bar, sit down meal, long bridesmaids gown. But also “different”. I mean different in the way that there will be stuff there that isn’t seen at weddings in my area – although they’re common all over boards and pinterest.
So, would a sash look good? Will it fit into the feel of my wedding?
Note: the sparkly headband and the veil shown in the photos are mine to be worn on the wedding day.
Edit: I hit send too quickly! If a mod could move this to “dress” that’d be great!
And here’s the stock photos of the dress. As you may be able to notice, it’s a combo of flowers and rhinestones on the hip

That is gorgeous!! And yes I think a sash would be lovely.

I think a sash would disrupt the flow of the dress and make it look choppy– that dress is gorgeous the way it is.

I agree with bookworm…..I think because your dress has an asymmetrical waist a sash might look “off.” I also think because it’s asymmetrical, a sash might cut you in half.

@Mata_Hari: Agreed. Right now the waist is really elongated because of the asymetrical drop — a sash would chop that up a lot.

I vote no. That dress looks great on you and the way the side is, I think a sash would cut it in half weird.

I think I tend to agree that a rhinestone sash like the ones that are “in” now would be overpowering for your dress. My instinct is that if you went with something on the thin side (at least half the size of the typical rhinestone sash/belt), it would be okay. You just don’t want the sash to be huge, and then cutting you in half.

@IowaDDS13: Your dress is too busy for a sash. Spice it up with your jewelry. You look amazing.

I think it would compete too much with the flowers on the side. I also think the ruching would look weird with a sash. Also, I agree with everyone else, the asymmetrical waistline would get cut oddly with a sash. The dress looks great as is on you.
If you want some sparkle, maybe some crystals or rhinestones sewn onto the flowers?

I think it looks good as is. But I love sashes and I think a small rhinstone or flower sash would look really nice. But, a purple sash would not work at all, so please dont do that.

It’s already so busy, adding a sash would be too much happening in my opinion! 🙂

sorry no sash for me ; but may be you (or the seamsress) can add some bling/cristals inside of your dress flowers .

I’m also in the “no sash” camp. Is there a reason you want one? Like a PP said, you can bling up the dress in other ways, like adding crystals to the flowers or the neckline…or jewelry!

@anali: , @AlwaysSunny: the flowers already have bling in them. I tried to represent it in the stock photo – but it didn’t do a great job! So that’s why I thought a sash -may- incorporate okay.

Don’t sash the dress! There’s no sash in the stock photo for a reason! Much too busy with a sash…
