So, I’ve been on and off about a sash for my dress since…forever! Ultimately, no one liked the sash but me, and I was only about 75% in love with it! I loved the dramatic pop of color, but no sash was ever gonna work with my style of dress (and believe me, I searched! I created! I stressed out! But nothing ever looked right). I figured my dress was pretty enough by itself. And it is!
But…my crave for COLOR was/is still not satisfied! I’m the type that drools over the Alfred Angelo “Dream in Color” dresses! I need something.
So, pearls are in my accessory ensemble, so I saw this, and thought it would be a perfect addition. No, not nearly as dramatic as a sash, but it might work.
I’ve also thought about dyeing my crinoline purple, wearing purple nail polish, and wearing purple shoes. I amd carrying purple and orange flowers, but you won’t see those throughout the WHOLE wedding. Not even the whole ceremony, for that matter. All of which, are subtle pops of color. Sigh. Can’t always have drama, I guess. In the end, I will probably still miss my sash:
Heavy sigh! I love the color, but hate that it doesn’t work.
Any other suggestions I haven’t thought of?

Ooh, that’s a good idea. Thanks! That may be semi-dramatic, too, depending on how big it is!

I found this necklace from Swarovski that I’m in love with! I may use it and take it to a jeweler and have a chain added instead of the ribbon so that it looks a bit more formal. And the earrings in a tanzanite color to match.

I would go with purple shoes too. I love how brides with long dresses lift i up slightly and BAM you see color!

I wore red earrings, red shoes and carried red roses, wrapped with burlap and red. It was little touches, without too much contrast in larger items.

Can’t you wear the sash straight across instead of in the V shape? Something like this?

I think a purple flower is a great idea. It’ll give you a pretty pop of colour 🙂
