Choosing Bridal Belts and Sashes for a Sample Wedding Dress

 Choosing Bridal Belts and Sashes for a Sample Wedding Dress

Once you’ve picked out your dream sample wedding gown, you may find yourself thinking of ways to take your bridal look a step up. Yes, all focus will be on the dress, but if you are feeling your dress is lacking that pizzazz, accessorizing is the way to go. 

Oftentimes, the best way to make a statement is through the little details. For example, finishing your look with a bridal belt or sash could be all you need to transform your sample dress. In this blog, we will cover the difference between the belt and the sash including ways to style that allow you express your personal taste with ease.

Bridal Belts

As you may assume, a bridal belt is exactly what it sounds like – a belt fastened around the waist of the bride. 

Bridal belts are used to accessorize the dress, adding some extra embellishment or texture to a simple gown, or perfectly tying in elements from different parts of the dress, making it look like a flowing unit. 

For example, if you have delicate bead work though out the hem and neckline of your dress, a bridal belt could be added as a bridge to subtlety embrace the beaded elements found through the rest of your gown.


The fabulous thing about bridal belts is their versatility, choosing a belt all depends on YOUR unique style. Belts come in all shapes and sizes, like thick or thin bands – dazzled with crystals or woven with lace. If you are unsure of which belt style will best suit your sample wedding dress, speak with your bridal consultant during the process! 

Bridal Sashes

Like the belt, bridal sashes are also a waist enhancing element. However, bridal sashes can be a little more delicate than the belts. Rather than clasping in the back, bridal sashes tie, giving the bride the sweetness of a bow.


Bridal sashes are ideal for brides looking for something a little more on the romantic side. The bow creates added softness and extra detail to the back of the dress. Bridal sashes are an ideal option for brides rocking an open back dress, the bow as a sexy finishing touch to the plunging back.
