Here is a pic of me in my dress – this is the sample which is two sizes too small, hence the atrocious fit. My first fitting is in a few weeks time and I have been thinking about whether I should wear a sash with this dress?
It is a champagne ruffled organza. The flower will be removed. I jsut think it needs somethign else. Originally I was going to put an Art Deco style brooch there but our wedding has become a very modern theme, so vintage elements are not going to work.
Our wedding colours are navy and blush, the men are in grey with b&w check shirts and navy ties, my bridesmaids are in navy dresses and my FGs are in blush
Would love some opinions/suggestions 🙂 🙂 Also – please forgive the photography, it was my 6year old daughter on my iPhone haha

It’s hard to tell with the blurry picture, but it looks like there are ruffles in the bust – or is that the removable flower? If it can be made plain up there, I’d do a sash. If not, I think it would be too busy.

Do you have a better photo? It is hard to decide when the photo is really blurry.

Looks great on you! I think you’re right to get rid of the flower on the bust (that’s what you’re talking about, right?) I think it’ll open up the fit of the dress better to emphasize your features.
I think you should do a blush colored sash, tied in the back. That way the colors will still coordinate with what you’re doing but it won’t be the first thing you see on the dress. Another nice, more modern option would be to do a grey sash to match the groomsmen. Either way, I’m sure you’ll look wonderful!

I think this is something you could play with during alterations, it’s hard to tell without actually seeing any examples. You may find once the dress fits properly it won’t need anything else, as your figure will be enough 🙂 If you do decide on a sash, I agree with the Pp about trying a blush sash.
