Okay, so I need help picking a sash/belt to wear with my dress:
It is ALL lace, and I really want something to add some sparkle and sinch in my waist! We are getting married in a historic theatre and are going for the old hollywood/vintage feel.
So which do you like for my dress and wedding theme?
OORRR….one of these brooches pinned on a silk sash. I love the sashes with bling kind of to the side of center (does that make any sense?…kind of like how you usually see flowers on sashes, but this time with a blinged out brooch!)
edit: size = 2.3×2.1in
edit: size = 1 3/8 x 1 3/4in
edit: size = 3x1in
edit: i added sizes for the brooches.
Okay, vote away! 🙂

My favorite is #3, but for what you described I think #5 all the way! Broaches are so vintage and scream old hollywood glam to me!

That’s a lot of options I chose number one 🙂

I love #4…It also happens to be exactly what I am looking for. Can you tell me where you found it?

Number 1 was my favorite by far, the others were pretty but I like that the sparkle will be around your whole dress and not only the front. I’m not a huge fan of using brooches personally though.

I think 3 is beautiful and goes best with your theme!

I like 1 and 2!
2 I think has the most vintage feel and will narrow your waist even more to the eye because of the shape.

I like #1 and #3. I would have to see #3 on the dress though because I may think differently.

I chose #1, #4, and #5. I like the simplicity of belts #1 and #4, though #1 would be dramatic with the sparkles going all the way around. Although #2 is pretty- it kinda reminds me of Wonder Woman!! lol.
I think the other 2 brooch’s may be a little too small to five the effect you’re looking for, and #5 is just nice and big and sparkly, which I love. I’m not the hugest fan of the white flowers on brooch #6, and #7 seems small. You could really play with the color/fabric if you use a brooch, although it may be hard to find something that matches your dress perfectly!
#1 is definitely my biggest favorite 🙂 You wouldn’t have to worry about finding/matching ribbon for your dress at all- it’s all sparkle 🙂

I just think 2 would look best with the dress

First, your dress is absolutely GORGEOUS! Second, I like brooch 5. I think it has the feel you are going for, is blingy and pretty, but not over the top to take away from your dress.

@Mrs. Twinkletoes: wow, thanks so much for all the analysis! Super helpful!
Just to let everyone know, #1 is NOT all sparkle all the way around…here is the back:
the company allows you to pick ribbon color. ivory, white, black, silver, pink.
