    I think the sash helps to define your waist so I would definitely have it sewn in.

    I think you look awesome in the dress, and I think the dress is enough on its own. The sash is cute, but the dress is beautiful, so why take away from it? I think it’s the flower on the sash that I don’t like with your particular dress; a plain sash would highlight your waist but not take away from the dress decor.

    Ooooh I really love your dress without it. I don’t hate the sash by any means, but I just love the overall look of the original dress and the corset back and don’t feel like it needs to be interrupted by a sash.

    I think having the sash makes your waist look thinner, so I voted yes to the sash.

    I like it with the sash, but I’m a sash girl.  The sash goes so well with the dress, I would for sure do it.

    I like it with the sash because it gives your waist more definition!

    I think the sash looks nice.  BTW, you don’t need to decide on the sash right this second – most likely your seamstress is going to tack it on with a few stitches at the end.  My built-in sash needs to be moved a bit on my dress and my seamstress said it was the last thing she was going to do bc its just a few stitches.

    I dont think you should sew it on. this way you can take your time to decide. You can wear it for part of the ceremony and then take it off later..
