Here’s my dress:
We’re having a somewhat informal outdoor wedding. I’m thinking vintage with blush/peach/creams for our color scheme. At first I really liked the dress with no sash keeping it simple, and I felt like it would work really well outside as is. Now I’m thinking that it needs a little something and a sash might be it. I’ve seen so many rhinestone sashes that I’m not sure would fit in with the semi informal feel of our wedding. Any ideas?

Maybe you could try one with flowers. But if you like the bling ones i say go for it! It will look great. Btw that dress looks amazing on you

If you have any lighter colors as your wedding colors, that could be really pretty.

@futuregattman: You’re the bride. You can choose a blingy sash if you would like, and it would look beautiful with your dress. However, if you would rather choose something more vintage looking and less flashy, there are some gorgeous fabric sashes with floral elements that would look beautiful with your dress. 🙂

Your dress is beautiful! I think a light and airy flower sash would be really pretty.

I am not a fan of sashes unless you don’t have a waist. Your body is amazing! You don’t need one.

@lightmist: Thanks! I’ve definitely been looking into flowers, but haven’t found one yet that I’m really taken with. Also, it’s tough since I’m not great at visualizing and my dress doesn’t come in until May/June.
@soontobemrsm11: I’m definitely thinking blush, peach, and cream for the colors. Not sure if I’m bold enough to go with much color on the sash, but a cream could be nice especially since my dress is actually ivory.
@MrsWBS: That is an amazing sash, and I wish I could say that I would consider it, but $230 is a bit over my accessories budget. It definitely gives me some ideas though.
@Rubbs: Thank you so much! Sometimes I worry that since I don’t really have much for curves that a sash might help a little since I went with a fitted dress. I originally wanted a natural waist dress and fell in love with the fitted/trumpet style, and I think I’m still adjusting to how it looks.

@Brielle: I’ve definitely been leaning toward the more fabric type sashes that you mentioned if I do go with one. I’m more conflicted about whether or not I should get one for this dress and my body type. Luckily, I will be trying on the sample again in a week for my future MIL so maybe we’ll figure something out then.

@futuregattman: An ivory or blingy sash would work. Depending on the dress, person wearing it and proposed sash it can make a dress but sometimes a dress doesn’t need it and I can’t decide fully with yours. Finally, you have a great figure, I can see curves. Right that’s it, I’ve made my decision – no sash! But a nice necklace maybe?

I added this crystal thing to my waist… ordered it from gloryshouse.com (under rhinestone embellishments) for about $30 and had it sewn on. It was gorgeous and super sparkly! They have plenty more of all shapes and sizes! Great deal! The funny thing is that on etsy, you can find the exact same ones that someone obviously just bought from them and then sewed it on a piece of lace or ribbon and now charges $100+ for it… insanity.
