Thank you Tulumbride2013 ~ I love the bling myself...I think you are right - the dress needs it!!

You are so sweet uhura526 - thank you...you girls are starting to boost my confidence again....so you like the bow? I am thinking maybe keep it....the dress zips up the back - no buttons so I am bot hiding anything as far as detail.....just a bit if lace is all....

Regarding the sash, Iâ€™ve also contemplated whether I should wear one and if I should sew or tie it on. I also have a lace mermaid and maybe my thought process will help a bit. I think in most cases a sash helps to define the waist and can really enhance the overall silhouette, especially with mermaids. I know that many think that lace is beautiful on its on (which it is) and doesnâ€™t need the help of a blinged-out sash, but I think of them as the icing on the cake. If there is no other bling on the dress, it can help to jazz it up a bit and itâ€™s a detail that really makes the dress yours. So I vote for the sash.
I havenâ€™t decided whether I will so sew or tie my sash, but Iâ€™m leaning towards sewing. I have a button closure down the back of the bodice and I love buttons, they were a dress requirement for me. I donâ€™t want the tied sash to take away from my buttons - I canâ€™t tell if your dress has buttons, but I know many Palomas do. With that said, I am looking for embellishment that will wrap all the way around my waist. But if I canâ€™t find one in my budget that I like, then I will go with a tied sash. Dependent on the length, I think it may look odd to have the embellishment just â€œfloatingâ€ on the dress. I also agree with your friend that the tied sash adds a romantic touch, but I feel that Iâ€™m already achieving that with the lace
ChocoTaco7568 ~ aww thank you...I was sad that I did not have same reaction, but I am going to follow my gut (which never steers me wrong) and tell myself I made the right decision. Also - all you ladies and your comments are making me feel more confident with my choice. As far as the sash - I like the way you perceive it. You are right - it will enhance the silhouette with the mermaid....it's funny that you mentioned that many think lace is beautiful on its own...I think in my case it's a generational thing because my Mom & Nanny are the ones loving the lace...no sash.... As far as your new dress - I love the sash and I think yes - sew it on so as to not hide the button detail on the back....my dress is a zipper up the back - no buttons - so perhaps I keep the bow, however, shorten the length of it.....

Agreed brgephar! Thank you so much for your input - it means a lot!

Awww, thanks CourtandMatt!!!!! I think the belt will be a keeper - perhaps shorten the bow in back a bit.....I also received a free veil (promotion when I ordered dress). I am not wearing it for the ceremony, however, I decided to bring to Mexico to get a few pictures with it....

Either way, you look gorgeous!
Hi AndreaandAaron - thank you so much! The back of the dress zips up - no buttons. I agree with your thoughts about the buttons - all the way down do look so elegant & timeless!
