    I am wearing lace and a sash. It actually came with my dress, buit I would have gotten one regardless. I think they are fantastic.

    My dress isn’t lace, but it has beading and shiny stitching on the bodice so it isn’t plain.  Here is my sash (and I apologize for the crummy pic, but I haven’t taken my dress to be altered yet and the only ones I currently have are ones I took myself in the mirror!):

    The sash is transparent horsehair with a feathery flower that matches the bottom of my dress, but if I had a plainer skirt I would have gone for one of the sparkly sashes with beading–I love those!

    I feel like sashes either create a waist or cut you off, depending on your figure.  Unfortunately, I’m one of the “cut off” ones, so I even got money off of my dress by declining the included sash.

    @MrsBrown13:  Moonlight style H1218. it looks sooo much prettier in person that on the website. I was really surprised when I saw it that I thought “wow, it looks better on me than the model” and I am completely obsessed with it now. I went back today to try on the sample with some jewelry and loved it even more

    @MrsBrown13:  I’m wearing a floral sash with my gown, and I love the way it ties my look together.  I’m hesitant to post tons of pictures of my dress (especially with me in it!) on the Bee just in case someone does recognize me … That’s one thing I’d prefer to keep private until my wedding day!  (After November 9th, all bets are off!  I’ll probably post pictures quite a bit then because I love my dress so much!  Haha.)

    I usually like sashes, but I think sometimes a dress doesn’t need it.  My dress has a lot of detail, but is very simple and elegant at the same time … So a sash works.  If my dress were really blingy or something, though, I would have opted to go without one.

    @MrsBrown13:  I think a floral sash with a lace gown can look really nice, but I suppose it depends on the overall look you’re going for.  I think a lot of ladies who choose a lace gown end up with a blingy sash, but you definitely don’t have to do that.  My dress has a little bit of lace on the bodice (not much, but some) and I have a floral sash … I don’t know if that helps at all without a picture, though.  Sorry.  I tried!

    @MrsBrown13:  so glad you and FI like it!! I love it and its actually really comfortable too. every dress before that one I thought it was pretty but I needed to lose some weight before it looked how I wanted it to. This was the first dress I tried where I felt skinny and fabulous in it. Hope it helps!

    it depends on the dress and the figure.
