An easy way to customize your wedding dress and make it one of a kind is to add a bridal belt or sash. There are endless options for size, color, dimension and sparkle. They are continuing to be a hot trend in wedding fashions, and you can easily coordinate your belt with the beading on your wedding dress and your jewelry for a flawless statement.
Kleinfeld Bridal has put together some examples of how adding a belt or sash to your wedding gown can change the appearance.
Pictured is a Monique Lhuillier Chantilly dress. The first belt option is a ribbon headband designed by Maria Elena. This belt adds “bling” and sophistication to the dress. The second is an ivory Monique Lhuillier sash, with a side accent of a Chantilly lace flower broach by Kenia Brea. This look is a much softer and more romantic option compared to the first belt style.
Here is a simple satin mermaid style dress from Henry Roth. They added a Kenia Brea three-dimensional floral and beaded belt at the natural waist. The second option shown is a Kisses NY beaded organza band with a side flower used to create an empire waist.
As you can see, they took two different dresses and gave each dress two separate personalities just by adding different belts. Pick a belt that defines you and makes your dress special. If you love the way your dress looks with and without a belt, just add the belt for the reception. It’s much more inexpensive than buying a second dress!
