    I think it’s too much, especially with the ruching on the bodice and the ruffles on the skirt.

    i think without the sash you look longer and leaner and it really highlights you instead of the dress. 😉

    Do you not have the beaded sash that came with the dress?  I don’t think the flowered sash compliments the dress as well.

    i like it better without.  If your looking to wear a sash try something a little smaller…i think this one, while pretty with some dresses, kind of takes away from the beauty of yours.

    I like it both ways. I’d probably skip it due to the price though.

    In my opinion, the dress looks much better without the sash. With it, it becomes too busy. You look gorgeous though! 🙂

    I agree that you look leaner w/o it. Normally, I love sashes like that, however not in this case. It’s too much with all of the detailing on the dress…

    if you want something at your waist, i’d vote for a light, neutral ribbon–either matching the dress, or champagne.  but that sash, while very pretty, makes the dress too busy, as other posters have mentioned.

    i think a simpler beaded sash would look great

    i’d go without the sash, it draws the eye straight to it and away from you…once you add jewelry i think the look will be complete and beautiful!

    I think it overpowers the dress.  If you want to add a belt, I think a beaded narrow belt would look great.

    i agree with previous posters, no sash! there are already many horizontal lines on your dress, adding a sash will make it look too busy.

    Unfortunately, that big flower sits right at your thinnest point- making it look less thin. Not the look most of us assume you’re going for. 🙂
