    Hi everyone,

    Just joined the forum the other day and I'm seeing everyone else showing off their beautiful dresses so I thought I would try and share mine.

    It's not exact just yet as this was only the first fitting. I am also wondering if I could get your opinion on the sash. It came with an off white one and I am having both an aqua and royal blue sash made because I thought some colour would be nice. Now I have 3 choices and I don't know which way to go.

    Background: My bridesmaids are in royal blue dresses and the groomsmen are going to have aqua shirts. Either sash would match but which might go better with the dress??

    I like the bustle on this. I'm hoping the lace will look nice dragging on along the sand. It's a little wonky and for some reason I look a little wider then I am so I'm also hoping my back side will look a little nicer too. ;-)

      Pretty dress!! I actually like the dress as it is with no sash (because of the lovely corset back!). But if I had to pick one, I would go with the off white.

        I actually don't think it needs the sash either, because of the back. Very pretty!

          love the dress! the back is so pretty/sexy/classy all on its own, that maybe my vote should be "no sash"

            I've seen girls that do the white sash for the ceremony, and then they switch it up and add some colour for the reception. If I had to choose between the two coloured sashes, I think I'd go with the one that matches the bridesmaids...but either way, it's going to look beautiful because that dress is awesome!!

            Good luck!!

              I love the dress, the back will look great with the sand! I think the white sash- but that is mostly because I can't visualize the other too! When you get the sashes I would love to see the pics!

                Wow thanks for the input ladies. I'm surprised that the option of no sash has come up. I really never even thought about not having one. I see what you're saying about it covering up the back. I suppose I could have the sash sewn to either side of the corset to tie in the front. Then I would have the best of both worlds. :-)

                Thanks again! I will be posting pictures of my decision when I have my next fitting.

                  Can't wait to see the pics! Like others I like the dress without a sash and can't really picture it with one so I'll wait to give my opinion with more pics!! Beautiful dress!

                    I agree with everyone else that the dress probably doesn't need a sash, however if you chose to have one I think the off white would look best!
