  • poll: Should I add a sash to this dress

    yes you should

    no you shouldn't

    once you add jewelry the dress will look great

    it will take away from the dress

    First of all that dress is gorgeous! And I actually LOVE the sash, its beautiful. I think i’d have to see the sash actually on the dress to make a full opinion, but first impression is HECK YES.. go with it!

    (PS I totally read your engagement story just the other day, so amazing!) Congrats!

    Id have to see a bigger pic of the dress to imagine it…this dress might be too busy for a sash.

    I voted “add jewelry…” I think a sash is too much with the bling at the waist line.  I think a bling necklace, earrings, and headband would add the sparkle you need.  My look is pretty blinged out, but I bought a 3″ wide bling headband to add more.   Its probably too much for those who prefer “understated” but I’m all about some bling!

    It’s hard to see with the picture so small, but it looks as though there is already sparkle details on the dress. I think adding a sash might be a little to much. BUT I think adding a veil with some sparkle and sparkle jewelery will you a great look!

    Gorgeous dress! I think there’s a lot of detail on the top and bottom of the dress, so you don’t need the sash. I think it might look a little too over the top if you did. Once you add jewelry, you’re going to be totally blinging anyway! Usually I only see the need for a sash with very plain dresses that need a little extra. This dress already has the little extra, so I wouldn’t add it!

    I really don’t think you need a sash; your dress is beautiful on it own!  I am looking for a sash myself, and loved the one you picked out.  Where did you find it?

    I think that a sash competes with the beading/jewels already on the dress.

    I think a sash would really be too much with the other details of your gorgeous dress.  What veil are you wearing?  You can add more bling with a veil that shimmers, or has detailed edging, or wear really amazing earrings and bracelets…

    No sash, no way.  A sash will totally compete (clash?) with the beading that’s already going on, IMO.

     

    Now strategically placed brooches at the pick ups… maybe.  But I really think you should just go jewelry with this one.  🙂

    I think the dress has enough going on. Use your acessories as your sparkle : )

    As the waist has detail already, I wouldn’t add the sash.
