One of the hot new trends in bridal fashion are belts and sashes.

Some dresses may come with a belt or sash, but a lot of them don’t. A simple elegant dress can be changed by adding a little bit of sparkle to accentuate the waist & complete your wedding day look.

Brides like to add this fun accessory when they want to bling it up or make it more unique.

So you may be wondering what is the difference between a belt and sash?

A belt clips, while a sash ties. So if you’re a bride that loves bows, a sash is the way to go. Our seamstress can also sew the belt or sash to the dress, so you don’t have to worry about it moving around. Little things like that make a huge difference on your special day.

Some brides like to add a belt/sash to change up their look for the ceremony or reception. In fact, some brides even get 2 different styles. An option for you is to have one blingy sash and one fun belt with feathers or flowers or even a splash of color!
Even adding a plain, satin sash in a contrasting color can enhance the look of your dress.

Remember, just like your wedding dress can take four to six months to arrive…a belt or sash can take as little as four weeks or as long as four months to arrive, so plan ahead. We have a variety of price points to help with your budget, but keep in mind the more sparkle…the bolder the crystals; the bigger the rhinestones they become a little less budget friendly so be sure to include this perfect accessory into your budget.
