When you’ve finally found The Dress, you might be ready to pick out your veil (or alternative), shoes, or even a dress sash. But does your dress even need a sash? Generally, a dress is perfect as is — but a sash can sometimes add a little glam or sparkle to a dress. A sash is never a requirement — but whether or not to wear one really depends on the dress you choose and how the sash will complement your overall look. Today we’re sharing seven reasons why your dress might need a sash.
On to the inspiration and, might I add, some of the loveliest sashes we’ve seen yet! Will you be wearing one?
Does Your Dress Need a Sash?
Here are reasons why your dress might need a sash:
1. You found one you really, really love — and you just couldn’t say no.
I get it. A late night shopping online or browsing Pinterest caused you to find a sash you just couldn’t turn down.
2. Your dress is elegant, but simple — and you crave a little bling.
A sash is the best way to add a little sparkle and shine to your dress. Pearls, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, or colorful blooms are just a few ways brides choose to add a dose of pretty, personal style.
Sometimes you just need some rhinestones…
… and crystals…
… and lace!
Or maybe you crave floral accents, like this crush-worthy sash:
3. You want to add a pop of color.
4. Your sash will incorporate your theme.

Crave a vintage theme? Wear a sash that has antique brooches, pearls, or an Art Deco theme:
5. You have an heirloom you want to wear as “something borrowed”.
If you have an heirloom brooch from your grandmother you’d like to wear, you can incorporate it into a sash — like this:
6. Your sash will be your “something blue”.
7. You want to wear a sash that also doubles as a headband.
