    I think the #2 would look better with your dress but to be honest you could find something cheaper.

    @blessings:  +1. I don’t love the one you have,  but you can do better than 800 for a crystal sash

    You could find something similar to either for much less!

    I’m not really digging the orginal sash.  But I would never pay that much for a crystal one. You really should go to Etsy and check out the sashes over there.  OMG some of them are drool worthy for 1/8 of the price. Many of the sellers will also work with you and customize something to exactly what you desire.

    I agree with you that the first one is slightly obnoxious.  I tried one on very similar and the salon was trying to get me to get it too.  I’ve been shopping etsy and it’s a little overwhelming.  This shop:

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/DreamcatcherStudio?ref=seller_info

    has gorgeous “high end” sashes and belts.  There are a lot of other and less expensive options too though.  Check it out before dropping $800!  🙂

    I think your original sash does overwhelm your dress a bit. But definite shop around before commiting to an $800 Vera sash!

    @Mrs. Mensah:  I voted “other” because I don’t like either sash.  I agree with you, the first sash cheapens your dress. The second sash is pretty but, because of the flow of the fabric at the bottom ofnthe gown, I like the idea of incorporating flowers into the sash.  I did a quick search and found the sash pictured here. It’s under $100. I found it on this site: https://www.elegant-gown.com/content/wedding-sash-bridal-belt-1-white-ivory-or-black

    I like the jeweled belt but no way would I pay $800, I’m sure you can find something cheaper!

    I much prefer the jewelled sash but that is just crazy expensive. Etsy have some lovely ones for far cheaper.

    I dislike the first sash and really love the second, but I’m sure you would be able to find a crystal sash a lot cheeper then $800!

    Is that gown vera wang? If so I also tried it on and it is a beautiful gown!

    i think the sash you bougth definintely cheapens the dress.  to be honest…the current sash looks very sad!!     I LOVE the vera sash but i htink you can get something very similar on etsy for alot cheaper.  shop around for a blingy sash and try to sell your current one!

    I agree. A different sash would look much better. That original sash is just too overwhelming for your dress or any dress for that matter. I do like the second sash though.
