I plan on buying my dress (Maggie Sottero’s Mia) this weekend. It comes with a satin belt, and in the stock pictures, it’s tied into a big bow in the front. I’d prefer to get an ivory beaded sash.
Any recommendations on where to get a sash online- preferably not something that’s over $150? The sash I tried on at the bridal store was $250!!!!
Thanks so Much!

Go to http://www.gloryshouse.com and find an applique you like. You can have your seamstress sew it onto an ivory sash at a fraction of the cost to buy one from a store or Etsy.

I’m buying a plain sash and attaching an antique brooch to the front of it. Saves a ton of money.

@FutureMrsHarris2014: I took the Glory’s House advice and was able to get the same items I saw on an Etsy sash design at a fraction of the cost. The sash I loved on Etsy was $325, and the materials I needed to make it were less than $100. I ended up with two sashes for $130! I bought the center crystal appliqués for my sashes at http://gloryshouse.com, and I bought a few satin and organza ribbons and some crystal trim http://www.mjtrim.com. I am going to have my seamstress put the final touches on them, but much to my surprise I have been able to put the sashes together very well by myself. This is the only thing I am doing myself for my wedding so far, and it has been fun. I love that my sashes are a customized design!

Isn’t it great?! I couldn’t believe how much Etsy sellers were upcharging for the same exact appliques. I thank the Bee that told me about that website everyday!

I just ordered one from Etsy this week. I looked on preownedweddingdresses.com and found one I liked but then I found the same one on Etsy for the same price! I ordered from Etsy so that I could customize it. I wanted the beading to go all the way around my waist instead of just in front. I was able to add the extra beading. The total cost was $70 incl shipping.
I wish I had found this thread earlier. Gloryhouse seems like an even better deal.

@FutureMrsHarris2014: Ohhh the mia!! I tried on that dress and it was a close runner up but went with a different dress in the end!
I suggest ETSY….you can find amazing sashes there for less than 100!
