Make sure you look at etsy! You can find beautiful ones from $50 -$300 – just like the bridal stores!

I’m not going to lie; when I started looking for sashes I was APPALLED by how expensive they are.  I make jewelry and I know the cost of materials vs. retail, but holy CRAP were these people taking advantage of the bridal market.

I’m really worried about my sash. I’ll reserve judgement until the dress and sash arrive next month, but my mom and the dress consultant picked the sash, and I was so exhausted by that point that I caved. Now I’m regretting it. Mine isn’t as much as yours, but it’s about even with the cost of the dress (I’m doing a cocktail party wedding, so my dress is a LWD). My mother thought the dress I chose was too plain and went a little sash crazy. If I hate it, and can’t send it back, I guess I’ll sell it. (I had the foresight to order an extra yard of dress fabric, since all along I wanted a silk flower pinned at my waist, so I’ll be able to still have what I want). So, if you decide you want a sash after all, I may have one for you in about a month for just $250!

I saw some beautiful sashes when I was in the market and then I found out that a lot of them were over $1000 which is absurd.  Still doesn’t get close to the price of my dress, but not happening.  I bought one at Etsy for $250 and it’s exactly what I want and within budget!

🙁 This happened to me (kinda) 
My dress is $4000. I got it on black friday *sample* for $900! My dress has feathers at the bottom so they put on a GORGEOUS sash that matched my dress exactly and I fell in love BUT IT WAS $550!! Fi told me to get it anyway, and I am happy I did..but yeaaaa sashes are crazy expensive. I’d look for cheaper…
