Accessorizing your bridal gown is the next step in your dress journey. While delicate veils and elegant gloves may come to mind, bridal belts and sashes are other stylish options to elevate your wedding day look. In this blog, we will cover all the different ways you can bring out your best attributes with bridal belts and sashes! Keep reading to learn more.
Bridal belts are exactly what they sound like, tasteful belts made to fit around the waist of your gown. Bridal belts often use a hook and eye closure, which makes it look like a seamless part of your gown.
Bridal belts are an excellent way to tie together the overall flow of your dress, for example, if you have a dress with heavy bead work, the belt will add sparkle to your waistline, accentuating your curves while tying together a beaded neckline and or beaded hemline.
Like a bridal belt, bridal sashes are also a waist accentuating element, however, sashes can add a romantic aesthetic. Unlike the belt, sashes tie into a bow at the back, bringing more attention to the backside of the gown. This can be especially beneficial for a bride with an open back gown, the bow softening the sultry factor.
Both bridal belts and sashes come in a wide array of styles, which gives the bride a chance to really indulge in her own personal expressions. When choosing belts and sashes, it is important to think about how the added accessory will flow with your gown silhouette and complement it instead of looking overdone.
With this in mind, choosing the right color of your bridal belt/sash is crucial. For dresses in the ivory shade, warm toned belts will do the job, while bright white dresses work well with cool tones.
