I need to purchase a sash soon (for it to be delivered on time) but can’t, for the life of me, decide between these two sashes. Price isn’t a factor. Please help me decide!
This is my wedding gown (Maggie Sottero – Madison):
The first sash is a Watters sash. It’s shown in a stone color, but I’d order it in white satin (to match my gown). The beading on it is absolutely amazing, but my concern is that the center is too round and that the shape would look funny on its own (because the white ribbon would just blend with my dress making the beading very noticeable). I know some might suggest a different color ribbon, but I’d really like white to be the only color on my dress.
The second sash is a BCGirls sash from Etsy. I like the shape of the beading a little bit more (when against white ribbon), but the beading isn’t as extravagant and the resale value won’t be as high. I also feel nervous about ordering a sash that I haven’t seen in person.

I like the second one more. Your dress is gorgeous so I don’t think you need as big a sash as the first!

The second one is amazing

I like the second! The beading is more gentle here, but will still add the perfect pop to your already gorgeous dress. I agree that the beading on the first sash is quite round and might take away from the overall lean look of the dress.

Thanks for your votes ladies!
There’s currently more votes for the first sash than the second, but no comments “for” the first. So please leave comments when you vote — it’d be so helpful in my decision making process =)

I voted for the second one, in my opinion it would look better with the dress.
I also ordered a sash from Etsy without trying it on and I couldn’t be happier, it’s perfect for my dress 🙂 Usually sellers in Etsy do an excellent job, so don’t worry.

I voted for the first one. I just had to picture it with it being in the same colour as your dress. I think it’s very pretty and would really define your waist well.

I really like the second one. It’s very elegant.

I think that the first sash will define your waist better because it is wider than the other from Etsy.

I love the one from Etsy.

I think the first one resembles a wrestling belt… though a pretty one!
And the second one is just gorgeous on you – compliments your small waist!

I totally understand you concern about ordering a sash that you can’t try on. I went trough the same thing. I found several really pretty sashes on Etsy, but I was soo nervous to buy one. I ended up getting one from the bridal boutique were I got my dress!
With that being said, I really like the first one. Its very classy looking. I’m not a huge fan of the pearls or the design on the second.
Have you looked at Dream Catcher Studio’s sashes on etsy? She has some really pretyt ones as well! http://www.etsy.com/shop/DreamcatcherStudio?section_id=6020847
