It’s sort of hard to say since the pics are of two different women. The top dress appears to fit very loosely, and it’s hard to even see the sash. The second dress fits better, so it’s more flattering. 

Can you take a picture with you in it, sash on and sash off?

This is just my opinion, but I think the dress looks plain without a sash, but I’m not a fan of the sash the bride chose. I’d probably go for one of those blingy ones 🙂

I really dislike the sash actually, I much prefer it without, but that might be because the dresses fit the girls better without the sash.

I’m just not a sash loving gal. I like the majority of dresses without them, including yours.  But it’s a cute idea for the reception to a sash/belt. You take off your veil & put on a sash. It changes up the look a little.

jenrebmol:  I am over the sash/belt trend…… Honestly I was never a fan of it…… I think sashes/belts date the dress kind of like puffy sleeves dated the dresses from the 1980’s.  Great hair, great makeup and some accessories (necklace, bracelet, earrings) can really dress up any wedding dress…….

I think it’s really a personal choice. I would either wear a blingy sash or no sash at all, however. I am sure it will look lovely without if that is the look you like.

I prefer the dress with no sash.

I like it without the sash/belt. But if you try it on and feel like you have no waist, then try it with the sash.

I too am tired of this trend.

I think it’s more flattering without in this case. I don’t think there’s a hard and fast rule though. Sometimes it’s better with, sometimes without.
