Ok so I’ve got the dress and now I need a sash. How do people buy sashes? Online or in store? Do you bring your dress to the store to make a perfect match?
Also I’m having trouble deciding the colour of the sash. I’m thinking either champagne, ivory, or a deep red. My wedding colours are white, ivory, champagne, and red as an accent colour (via some red roses and a few pieces of decor). I will probably have red roses in my bouquet.
Please help me out by voting on one of the 6 sashes or show me another option you think will look great! (I don’t want super blingy fyi)
Here’s my dress:
1. Bordeaux Flowers
2. Burgundy Flowers
3. Satin and Crystal
4. Champagne Grosgrain Ribbon
5. Ivory Horsehair (ETSY)
6. Ivory Horsehair (Davids Bridal)

I really love number 4, the grosgrain. It’s not overpowering and matches the dress. I think the horsehair ones might compete too much with the bottom of the dress.

@MeiFrancis: Thanks for the comments! I love horsehair but I do agree with you on that it might be too much. At least if I pick the grosgrain one I can go get it in person at my local DB.

I like number 3 the most. You don’t necessarily want to take away from that absolutely gorgeous bouquet! #3 is elegant and very simple, like babypearls said.

Is that Vera Wang Gemma? I think some of the sashes your’e considering are gorgeous; however, I also think that there is already a LOT of goregous texture on your dress and that you may not need any type of sash. Your bouquet will give you a beautiful pop of color!

@babypearls: I liked this one too because it was small and subtle but still pretty!
@Stranger516: Thank you, #3 is in my top 3 now at this point. You’re right about it being elegant and simple, I definitely don’t want too much!
@Brielle: Yes, Gemma! I just got it pre-owned and my bank account thanks me for that lol. I was thinking about no sash, but most brides I have seen wear a sash with it and it’s a lovely addition. I might end up ordering one since I picked rather inexpensive sashes and then see if it’s better with or without. It might be weird to drag the dress into a bridal salon to match it to sashes.

I voted 2, but 4 is a close second!
