Hello Bees –
Wondering if I need a sash for this dress: http://www.bhldn.com/shop-the-bride-wedding-dresses/margeaux-gown/productoptionids/fbcaeb8b-b90b-4e9a-9313-32da085940dd
I think it would help break-up the waste. Thinking Gold or Champagne – maybe something fancy. I love all the options at BHLDN, but not looking to spend 200-300.
We are getting married on the beach in Hawaii, we will be prety low key. I won’t be wearing shoes 😉
Do you have any thoughts or good ideas? Anyone DIY and what did you use? Or Etsy?
Thanks so much!

Etsy has many beautiful options for every budget. Avoid bridal shop at all costs! Mine tried to sell me one for $600!!!

I don’t think you absolutely NEED a sash/belt with that dress but it would help accentuate your waistline.

Thank you – I will also be wearing leis since we are getting married in Hawaii. So on the fence, don’t want too much going on….

Need? No. Could a sash look nice? Yes.

@JAS: I think a sash would look lovely with your dress! Your dress is very romantic so maybe a sash with soft romantic flowers… In champagne or blush maybe!

@JAS: my dress, Allure 9068 is all lace as well. My family, except for my little brother think a belt is necessary. However, in choosing lace dress I wanted to show the dress. I’ll be getting alterations to pull the waist in, but I can understand why people may choose a built. My little brother seems to believe that there’d be too much attention ony waist and not my face so I thought that was cute and sweet.

I got that same dress! Yay!! When I tried it on at the store, the stylist recommended belting it, and a belt did really help accentuate my waist and break up the all-lace look of the dress. I’ll be keeping an eye on this post as I am also looking for a sash, but $200 for the BHLDN sashes is just a little out of my budget 🙂 I hope you find one that works!

I vote no, because I love the simple look at a beach wedding 🙂
