ok… some background information.
when i first picked my gown i fell in love with a coloured sash/flower combo. the sash kind of made the deal. and i never questioned this look until today. further, i was always set on wearing my hair down or half-up/half-down since my fiance really loves it that way.
today, i went in for another fitting, to solve my boob problem (here’s a link if you missed the story: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/2nd-fitting-not-sure-how-i-feel-about-the-girls-what-do-you-think) and i ended up trying the dress on without the sash and having my hair pulled up. i took some random pictures of it so i would remember the “current status” of the dress.
now, sitting at home and looking at the pictures i kind of love the “new” look. this makes me wonder if I should rethink my initial decisions. what do you think? sash or no sash? hair up or hair down?
sorry for the crapy/blurry pictures!!!
new look: (don’t know what happened to my eyes… scary 🙂

Normally, I am so, so anti-sash. But you’re absolutely right about this one – it really complements your look. I have no opinion on the hair – I think you’ll look great either way!

I have to agree with beluga. Normally I gag over sashes, however this one I adore.

OMG new look looks WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY better than old look. hair up totally looks beautiful on you. And the sash takes away from the simple beauty of the dress IMO.

Hair up!!! Not sure about the sash, the color is not my taste. I think it looks a lot better without the sash but i love the flower

Agreed with above; The sash really brings the look together! Personally, I think the down hair looks best, but that’s just me.

thanks for the feedbacks!
i’m kind of glad to hear that a lot of you like this sash with my dress 🙂 i spent soooo (!!) much time to track down the right colour and right width. i would have felt bad if it had been for nothing. this way – it was worth it 🙂
if the hair votes stay close… i’m pretty sure i’ll wear it down – fiance will looove it.

I have a sash and flower on my dress so I totally love #1! I have never been one to like plain white dresses, so I always like a little something-something or bling on a dress. But that’s just me, and that has to be you too. I would never tell a girl to get a dress she didn’t like!
For your hair, I would suggest maybe blowing it out or getting some waves. You have fairly thin hair, like me, and I think it would add a nice bit of oomph. Get a veil and some jewelry and you are set!

I think hair half-up and sash would be a nice look. Most importantly, you mentioned Fi likes your hair down.
