Fashion advice needed

So, wedding July 4th weekend. Bought a new dress today, which I love. (Admittedly I'm biased because it fits astonishingly well (with the minor exception of the straps being a touch long, which I can easily fix; yes, that's why the torso is bunching a little in the pictures) and it wasn't that expensive (the shoes cost more)). However, it was the only one left on the rack, and it comes with this long sash thing that I can't quite tell what to do with. Therefore, behind the cut, I give you pictures and a poll:

[Edit: the dress is dark brown with cream, not black and white. Apparently I should've played with the color balance before posting the pictures.]

First, from the front, with the sash hanging behind to just be out of the way:

As you might be able to see, there's a seam below the waist that comes to a point. This is partly why I think the sash doesn't go in front, because then that would be hidden.

With the sash in front. Note that I cannot, for the life of me, tie a pretty-looking bow; I didn't even bother tying an ugly bow. If I have to tie a bow, then this is a no-go regardless of what it's supposed to be:

Based on the way the sash is currently creased, I suspect that it's meant to tie in the back, as here. However, it seems awfully long. Again, I can do a plain flat knot, but not a bow.

So, fashion experts:

What should I do with the sash that came with this dress?

Tie it in front, only if someone can do a proper bow for it.

Oh, and while I'm at it: single short string of fake pearls good for a necklace? Or something else?
