Buy a crinoline skirt to where under the dress to give it some lift.

That sash is beautiful! It’ll look nice with the lace. And treeline is right a crinoline will add more poof! Davids bridal sells them and I know there’s some places online that sell them too

I agree with @Treeline: and @littlemonster2171: about the crinoline.  I think the sash is gorgeous.  My only concern would be where you plan to position it, given that your dress is very fitted at the waist and under the bust. I don’t think you should wear it too high, but if you don’t position it high enough, there may be an awkward space above the sash and under the bust.

The dress is gorgeous and you’re so pretty.  I think the dress has enough going on and I wouldn’t overcomplicate it with the sash.  I would get the slip to fill out the skirt, a nice bracelet, maybe a small necklace, and call it a day.

Beautiful dress, you dont even need the sash. But it also is a beautiful sash.

Davids Bridal carries several different under garments to help skirt look fuller. Here’s the link to options you can pick from http://www.davidsbridal.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/EndecaConnectionQueryCmd?searchDimension=%2B4294963373&searchKey=All&redirectedOnce=1&catalogId=10051&searchDimensionName=Accessories&langId=-1&y=0&x=0&storeId=10052&ddkey=http:EndecaConnectionQueryCmd

Remember you’ll be holding your bouquet at your waist for many of the photos, so that can add a lot of color  Deep reds, oranges, and yellows for the fall would be nice.

Shape wear and some support for the girls! Lose the sash, and slip into some foundation! Voila!

Gorgeous dress!  And I LOVE THE SASH!

I do have 1 suggestion for the crinoline.  If your dress has some tulle on the inside of the skirt you can have your seamstress add anoher layer of the tulle to help the skirt be fuller.  I am not too sure the cost of a crinoline but my seamstress only charged me 40$ for the extra layer of tulle and it made a huge difference.  Plus I didn’t have to wear a full slip or extra skirt.

Before limp and too big a over:

After when it was hemmed and the extra layer of tulle for fullness and to hold it’s shape:
