What are the options for sashes?
When looking to buy sashes, there is a variety of choices in terms of where to buy the sash and a variety of sashes one can buy. We are going to break down the options you have with regards to sashes and help guide you to make an informed decision, wherever you choose to get one.
Sashes can be found primarily at 5 places: Wedding halls, Graphic stores, Value stores (such as Costco),
Costume/Novelty stores, and specialized sash stores. Unfortunately we can not say which place is objectively the best place for you to go, as the best place for you to go depends on your situation. There is a couple of factors which determine what is the best in different scenarios and will go over that below
Wedding halls is one place you can get sashes. To some, it is the first place they look (often if they have a wedding), other times, it is forgotten entirely. Wedding planners/accessory shops have the advantage of convenience (if purchasing other wedding items), and usually made at a consistent high quality. The disadvantage is that they may be pricier than other locations and that they may have very little variation, as they develop sashes primarily for one purpose. One thing to note about wedding halls is to ensure you ask for a bridesmaid sash over a bridal sash, as a bridal sash wraps around the waist, unlike the sash you may want (around the arms and chest area).
Costume and novelty stores is another place where you can find sashes. As they make costumes and costume related items, an accessory such as a sash (an item people may use with a costume) may be in their inventory. They are the opposite of wedding halls in many aspects. There can be a lot of variety here, as the sashes are developed for a multitude of purposes. The prices can vary heavily too. The disadvantages are that finding a costume or novelty store are that the quality of the sash may not be up to par at some novelty stores for the purpose you wish to use them for. Costume stores also lack the convenience factor for some people, as the costume stores are rare.
Graphic & Printing stores are often a place people don’t realize sell sashes. Graphic stores sashes are multipurpose. Graphic stores are a little more common than costume stores however people generally do not seek out graphic stores for convenience. The main draw of going to graphic stores for sashes is the ability to have the design of the sash look however you want and the ability to print anything on the sash. If the sash needs to follow a specific look of a theme of an event, a graphics store is the most ideal. The drawback if the sash you want may be generic, the unique value that a graphic store rings means less to you.
