any one know where I can buy a sash that’s not at a bridal shop? they are all sooooo overpriced!! I have been checking etsy but I think I would like to see before I buy. I’m in nyc, so assuming there must be somewhere??

yogahhh: I went with etsy and I couldn’t be happier. I know a lot of friends of mine bought their sashes on etsy.

Unfortunately if you buy your sash in person it is pretty much always going to have to be at a bridal store. I would suggest Etsy or eBay as good options. I found a lovely one on eBay for only ~$40 that was nicer than many $200+ ones I saw in stores.
You can also buy the rhinestone appliques and sash base separately, and put something together yourself for very cheap.

Plain or blinged up? Do you have any examples of ones you like? I definitely second (third?) Etsy, but sometimes inexpensive + blingy = tacky looking, so read reviews.
(On DIY, sometimes beautiful brooches can be sewn on to sashes…)

You or a seamstress can easily make one. Choose the beaded applique you like at a bridal fabric store and have it hand sewn onto a ribbon.

I agree with searching Etsy or ebay. I couldn’t decide from just seeing online but they were so inexpensive ($50-$80 a piece), that I bought 3 and tried them on with my dress. I then sold the other two on this site’s classifieds. Good luck!

Are you looking for plain or bling? I have a partially blinged one my dress came with that I never used that I can sell to you! I am also in the NYC area! You can also check on pre-owned websites like tradesy, recycle your wedding (where I have mine currently listed), and other sites!

I saw one or two sashes in the wedding section at Michaels.
