{blue satin sashes}

Completely fell in love with this photograph of Jen Gotch's whirlwind trip to Vegas -- the lacy strapless dress with blue satin sash and matching shoes are just perfect and très romantic.

Carla Bruni was said to have worn a sleeveless, knee-length Hermès dress with a 10 cm-wide marine blue ribbon for her wedding to French President Nicolas Sarkozy. {Unfortunately, since no photographers or press were allowed at the "secret" ceremony, we may never see the dress, but Carla was described as ravishing by Francois Lebel, the mayor of the 8th district of Paris, who officiated their marriage.}

Above, the image that began my love for white dresses with blue satin sashes, Sarah Humphreys, from the final issue of Blueprint {January/February 2008}.

{Thanks to Kathryn of Snippet & Ink, for sending along the last three photos.}

Sashes are so classic and crisp. I love how the blue sash pops against the white dress in the photo.

I have been seeing sashes on wedding gowns for a while now, but not this blue! Love the last one the best:)

A very elegant touch - I want my wedding dress to have a satin sash too probably a black or deep blue colour.

Oh, I love that blue! Of course, I've been looking at a lot of lovely dresses with sashes lately as we do our wedding dress shopping! We finally decided to have one made as most were so ugly!
Thanks for sharing some beauty!

Happy day,
Melissa

Emily, you're too funny--that "you had me at the header line" was my fav, and love that you caught the SofM reference :)

This deep blue is such a nice change from all of the pale green sashes we were seeing a few years ago. Very pretty.

This just looks so beautiful...does anyone know where I could buy a blue sash like this? As I have an event coming up to which i am wearing a white dress, I would absolutely love to wear it with a blue sash (I was thinking black, but you have converted me!)
