What about a wide gold ribbon?  Or ask a seamstress to make them out of gold fabric.  It is actually cheaper than you think to have things made.  Hope that helps!

Could you make them yourself?  If they don’t need to be super fancy.

Could you share a picture of what you would like it to look like?

Wow, there must really be an untapped (?) market out there for this exact type of sash.  I made six of them for a co-worker’s daughter’s wedding in bright yellow recently.  Her maids had DB’s dresses in navy with that exact folded sash and I just measured and duplicated it.  I was going to charge my friend $60…I also made removable little folded-over ‘bows’ to be attached to the fronts if they liked them, per bride’s request.  My co-worker was so thrilled with them and must have priced them out elsewhere and insisted on paying me $100. 

So that doesn’t help you with finding them but try a local seamstress and figure on paying at least $10 each one…and you will be providing the fabric, thread, interfacing and hooks.

No fun.  Try Yelp to look for a seamstress or ask friends/co-workers.  Maybe call the local dance studio/community theatre and ask who does the costumes for them.  The only reason I say this is that my seamstress does costuming for the local dance school and she is amazing!

Maybe ask a local dry cleaner? Sometimes they do tailoring and minor alterations. I don’t know if it will work, but it’s an idea. You’d probably need to bring in a picture of the sash so they know what you mean. 

Or put up an ad on craigslist.
