As you search for the right wedding gown for your special day, don’t be afraid to play with details and accessories. Sometimes you’re just one detail away from falling in love with a dress. And your big day is all about love. Wedding dress belts can be the perfect piece to tie together your look. Add some texture, define your silhouette and accent your gown with some sparkle. You’ll be amazed at how much one well-crafted wedding sash can change the way you feel – from a woman in a beautiful dress to a bride ready to marry the love of her life.
What is a Wedding Belt?
It’s all in the name: Wedding belts are adornments you wear around your waistline. They come in a variety of motifs, colors and materials, making them an easy and whimsical way to personalize your bridal ensemble. Let these five bridal belt ideas inspire your style. Rhinestone belts are popular because they make a bold statement without weighing down your gown. Brides seeking a more delicate look will sometimes choose an embellished wedding sash belt on a long satin ribbon that they can tie into a soft, trailing bow. Dress up a slim, sophisticated gown or add definition to a full ball gown.
Curating an ultra-feminine look? Consider a wide ribbon wedding sash with romantic floral detail. Silk flowers add dimension and color as well as a fun vintage touch that coordinates well with flowy A-line silhouettes and softens structured pleated skirts. For an aesthetic that balances glamor and youthfulness, try a beaded wedding belt or sash. Luminous pearls and seed beads create beautiful patterns to pair with your gown for a one-of-a-kind wedding dress.
How to Choose a Wedding Belt or Sash
It might seem like a one-and-done shopping experience, but selecting a wedding sash belt is like choosing a belt as you get ready for your day. You may try on two or three and still not know which one to wear out the door. Consider getting your partner or bridesmaids involved in creating your vision and must-have details. Ask yourself these questions as you shop for this statement piece:
Does this wedding sash complement or distract from my gown?
Do I like the way my body looks when I wear it?
Can I adjust the size to fit my measurements?
Can I move freely while wearing this belt, or does it catch or tug on my gown?
