A selection of bridal belts to enhance your waist and add a touch of sparkle to your gown.
What is a Bridal Belt?
Bridal belts are fabulous self-tying sashes, typically on an ivory ribbon base, that can be added to your wedding dress to provide a touch of glamour and sparkle. They typically have some sort of ornamentation — beading or lace — in the centre. You can choose to keep it natural and have the ribbon bow on show, or the belt can be sewn directly onto your wedding dress by your alterations seamstress for a tidy look at the back. A third option is to have the belt part removed altogether and attach only the jewelled section to your dress!
Wedding Dress Belts from top UK designers
What we love about wedding dress belts is how they can completely transform your gown’s appearance. Particularly if you've gone for a fairly simple gown. A bridal belt can literally lift the whole look. Just adding that little bit of sparkly crystal at the waist can take you from Plain Jane to bridal perfection in one swift move!
Flattering on the figure
Let's also consider the incredible waist slimming properties of the bridal belt! Even if you already have a fabulous waistline — you lucky thing! — you may as well accentuate it. And if you don't, then you can create the illusion of one by breaking up the block of ivory in the middle of your gown with some fabulous beaded detailing!
