    I don’t think that it needs one.

    I would have to see it on the dress to know for sure but it looks great without one:)

    IF you do a sash get a thin all-beaded one. Don’t want to overpower all that beautiful lace! 🙂

    @miss.wiggums:  I found this sash on Haute Bride (their accessories are sold in quite a few bridal boutiques, including the boutique where I purchased my gown):

    I’m not sure what your wedding color scheme is, but the website states that you can customize the colors.  The item number is SH74 if you’re interested.

    I know this wouldn’t be for everyone, but I think it’s gorgeous.  It’s soft and romantic (like your gown) with hints of lace and just a little sparkle.

    I’d leave it as is actually. It’s already super pretty!

    I think the dress is lovely as-is, but if you decide to go with a sash, I don’t think I’d go with lace. I think a lace sash would take away from that gorgeous skirt, but a satin ribbon or even a flowery one like @angelinthesnowxo posted above would be pretty if you feel like you want one. 🙂

    I think it is great as is! It’s a gorgeous dress! To me, I like the sashes with the all lace dresses. Since your dress already has a distinction between the top and bottom, it’s perfect!

    No sash. The dress is so pretty on it’s own. It doesn’t need it.

    I say no sash, but I don’t think a small sash would be bad either!

    What does the back of the dress look like? I think sashes do more to add back interest than front.

    When I google the dress, I see some brides wearing it with a white flower sash, similar to the pink one posted above. I think that looks nice!

    I’m also in the minority with bling. Although I don’t think your dress *needs* a sash (it’s a gorgeous dress!), I can see it with a very thin beaded/crystal one.

    The bling thing is so overdone that it’s become ordinary – your dress is beautiful without it, and it already has a lot going on – bling would make it too busy, IMO . . .
