My dress came with a sash, but I didn’t like it. I definitely wanted some extra sparkle, though, and after realizing I would never be able to afford (or justify buying) the $300+ crystal sashes I kept falling in love with, I just made my own.

^^ The one I made is in the photos I posted. (Though I just read in another thread that your firewall might blocking the photos.) =]

I found some taffeta (which took months to find in the perfect color and texture to match my dress!) and sewed a simple ~1″ wide sash, and then slowly attached and reinforced the crystal trim by hand stitching each. freaking. crystal. It took forever, but I was able to make exactly what I wanted for less than $50!

The original sash that came with my dress was covered in tons of cheesy plastic pearls and beads, was too wide, and didn’t match my jewelry.
