Wore this with the wedding dress I also bought from BHLDN. Everything the picture describes. It is truly beautiful. You can find it from me on weddingbee!

Unique design, lacking in details
When I first saw this sash, I knew it was exactly the unique piece I was looking for to complement my wedding dress. The width of the decorative part was thicker than the average sash, which is difficult to find. The jewels and the embellishments look almost precise to the image shown. The ribbon is much more champagne however than the image. The sash overall is light weight, which is a plus to me.
Improvements that could be made:
1. Packaging: came wrapped in tissue paper and a sticker in a plastic bag. I have ordered items from Anthropologie before and I am surprised how the packaging is inconsistent for such a luxury brand and it did the belt no justice.
2. The ribbon. Absolutely disappointing. The ribbon came wrinkled and was of poor quality (very short and thin and scratchy material). For the pricing, I would've imagined the show-stopping quality of the front would be matched by a cascading ribbon in the back. For reference, I am 5'3.5" size 00 and the ribbon was barely enough to tie a decent bow with the excess barely reaching my bum and looks quite silly. Most people will have to pay to have the ribbon replaced by something more substantial, but attention to detail should not be overlooked by BHLDN
