Yes! Beautiful dress! But the bakc could use a little pick me up!

A bow would look beautiful 🙂

Idk… I think the colored bow in the back by itself might look out of place, like you just stuck it on there.

I think it will look nice on that dress, partiularily if the ribbons coming off of the bow are the length of the skirt.

I know this is kindof “different”, but when I got married in 2007, my dress had a colored ribbon in the back of the dress, but it came out of the TOP.  There was no color in the front (the ribbon kinda came in from under the arms, so it wasn’t seen in front)….it just trailed out from behind….it looked like this:

and here’s the model pic from the front (you can kinda see the ribbon coming out behind her) – disregard the model’s ridiculous hair!

Have you tried a regular sash with it? maybe something like this with lace in it to tie it into the dress – Etsy is great for custom things like this – you could even show them your dress and see what they can do to match it

@woodwindwaker:  If you really just want the splash of color, there has been a lot of talk lately about dyed crinolines. Maybe if you want the splash of purple you can do that, so when you pick it up to go up the stairs, etc. you’ll be able to show it off. If you google purple crinoline wedding dress there are a ton of pictures!
