New to the board. Been browsing some dresses online, and also visited a few local stores. My budget is around $1,000 but less would be great 🙂 Has anyone worn a Bonny dress? I know this probably is not the “high” quality designer judging from the GORGEOUS dresses I see on here! However, I do love this one!! And rum pink color is an added bonus. Spotted it on Ebay. Too bad I probably cant find this in stores to try on…its probably like 10 years old lol lol But for a low price, maybe I should take a shot? If it helps, I’m a size 8 or 10 and I am 5’7.
Also, I would NOT use the colored sash. I would probably switch it for soft ivory/pink.

Ugh don’t like the sash, I think it cheapens the dress. Very pretty btw!

Wow, that dress is so beautiful! Love it!!! I don’t care for the sash, either, though.

It’s a very pretty dress, and I like the sash – but not in that color. Maybe something darker? I think it does help define the waist a little better though.

Love the dress, hate the sash. With your stats, anything probably looks good on you. This is a very common silhouette. Go to a local bridal shop and try on a strapless A-line. If you like the silhouette, go ahead and order it.

I think the dress is beautiful. I like the sash because I think it really defines the waist but I would do it in a different color like feministbride: said.

Love the dress not so much the sash

I like how the sash flatters the waist of the dress. However, I don’t care for that particular sash. It kind of looks like you went to the fabric store and bought a few yards of ribbon off the rack.

You know, reading this comment made me look at it again and I think I agree. Maybe the sash is good since it does show the waist really nicely.
OP, can you get another material for the sash?

I love the first picture of the dress from afar. The shape is beautiful.
I’m not thrilled by the scalloping on the neckline though.
As for the sash, I like the idea of a sash, but definitely NOT that color.

Gorgeous dress, but I don’t care for the sash and don’t think it is necessary. If you did do a sash, I thing something with less “pop” (think champagne, coffee, mocha, etc) would work best.

I think the dress is really beautiful! I agree with some of the others who like the way a sash could define the waist a little more, but definitely not that sash. Go for a better quality sash in a softer color, I think!

Love the dress. Agree with your decision that the sash doesn’t go well with the dress.
Replacing the sash will be easy and inexpensive though.
