Opaline & Pearl Sash
Timeless and elegant
This sash has exactly the character I looked for to compliment my dress, which is my Great Grandmother's wedding dress from the 1930s. I was delighted to get it in the mail because it has a vintage look that matches the floral design in the bolero jacket that came with the dress, and it helps update my dress and move it from a pastoral look to a more elegant style! The ribbon matches the ivory shade in my dress perfectly, and the ivory opalines add dimension and color.
I can understand how other reviewers may have been disappointed by the price, but I bought it on sale and am both satisfied and inspired!

less impressive in person
After several mishaps from ordering my dream wedding dress through BHLDN I finally got a sash that wasn't damaged. It however was shipped to the wrong address and it looked less impressive in person. I agree with the other review. It looks cheaply made and I'm debating on returning or exchanging it... such a let down :-( It doesn't look sparkly or noticeable in person. It lacks luster... I wasn't impressed with the overall quality :-(

not as pictured
My dress is the color of the ribbon showed in the first picture. The actual product is more of an off white/slightly ivory but definitely not as dark as I thought. The gems and pearls are also not as dark. The last picture is more of a correct reflection of what the product looks like.
Beside the coloring, the product itself wasn't as expected either. It looks and feels much cheaper, very light weight and plastic like versus something elegant and classy.
The length seems to fit well on my body with my waist circumference at 29 inches.I am on the fence about returning it and hoping for something that doesn't appear so cheap.
