    Yes! You should get a rhinestone sash

    Yes! You should get a purple sash (wedding color)

    Yes! You need to get a floral sash!

    No!! The dress wouldn't look right with a sash

    Maybe? It would look equally good with or without a sash.

    I think a sash would disrupt the flow of the dress and make it look choppy–  that dress is gorgeous the way it is.

    I agree with bookworm…..I think because your dress has an asymmetrical waist a sash might look “off.” I also think because it’s asymmetrical, a sash might cut you in half.

    @Mata_Hari:  Agreed. Right now the waist is really elongated because of the asymetrical drop — a sash would chop that up a lot.

    I vote no. That dress looks great on you and the way the side is, I think a sash would cut it in half weird.

    I think I tend to agree that a rhinestone sash like the ones that are “in” now would be overpowering for your dress.  My instinct is that if you went with something on the thin side (at least half the size of the typical rhinestone sash/belt), it would be okay.  You just don’t want the sash to be huge, and then cutting you in half.

    @IowaDDS13:  Your dress is too busy for a sash. Spice it up with your jewelry. You look amazing.

    I think it would compete too much with the flowers on the side. I also think the ruching would look weird with a sash. Also, I agree with everyone else, the asymmetrical waistline would get cut oddly with a sash. The dress looks great as is on you. 

    If you want some sparkle, maybe some crystals or rhinestones sewn onto the flowers?

    I think it looks good as is. But I love sashes and I think a small rhinstone or flower sash would look really nice. But, a purple sash would not work at all, so please dont do that.

    It’s already so busy, adding a sash would be too much happening in my opinion! 🙂

    I’m also in the “no sash” camp. Is there a reason you want one? Like a PP said, you can bling up the dress in other ways, like adding crystals to the flowers or the neckline…or jewelry!

    Don’t sash the dress! There’s no sash in the stock photo for a reason! Much too busy with a sash…
