As some of you know, I’m re-working a vintage lace dress that I’m in love with.
The question is, should I get a satin sash that ties in the back? Or will it make it too busy?
Here’s a picture of the dress…
And if you think a sash will look good – what color??

I’ve never seen a thread with -1 comments before, wonder how that happened…
Anyways, I reckon you should skip the sash, the dress is so lovely the way it is.

What are your wedding colors? Something coordinating might be nice!

I think you could go either way but my preference is without. It’s beautiful.

do you have a pic from the front? my gut feeling is no sash, but i need to see the front view to be sure your waist is defined!

I don’t know what color to tell you. I would either go with the same color as the underlay of the dress (blush color) or with a color to match your bridesmaids.

what color is that under your dress, is it like a goldish color? i would go with that color if you were to do a sash.

I agree with PPs, I’d do a sash in the same color as the underlay 🙂

I think that the same color of the underlay would look nice as well. 🙂 I don’t think it necessarily “needs” a sash, but I do think it would help to visually break it up, which I like.

Yes, same color as underlay!

I voted no sash… but it’s sort of hard for me to tell without a picture of the front of the dress.
It might be fun to do no sash for the ceremony, but add a sash in the blush color for the reception. That will give you two different “looks” and you can get the best of both worlds.

Beautiful dress!! I would consider possibly a skinny, plain, champagne-colored sash.

I agree with the PPs, a sash the same color as the underlay would be really beautiful.
That dress is so gorgeous!

Here’s a picture from the front – the lining is not connected yet, so its all funky in front. When it’s finished it’ll be really form fitting on top.

I think you look gorgeous in your dress! I think it would be beautiful with a sah or without, but I am voting for yes since i am kind of a fan of the champagne/light gold sashes on every dress!
