Fab Finds: 7 Unique Bridal Belts and Sashes
As many a bride knows, a simple, sleek wedding dress can be just as beautiful as an ornate ball gown. While some brides may prefer a gown with a dramatic skirt, romantic details, or a bold pattern, many brides prefer the opposite, looking instead for something more understated. But what about the bride who wants both?
One of our favorite ways to dress up a bridal gown is with a bridal belt! Belts can add a unique flair to any gown, and we found some beautiful, exciting choices for someone looking to add something special to their bridal attire.
1. Avanti Sash – BHLDN
Our first (and may we say chicest) favorite is this Avanti Sash from BHLDN. This sash features a variety of gorgeous, elegant details, including metallic embroidery, beads, and rhinestone appliques. Together, these accents work to create a look that is both glitzy and sophisticated. We could see this being a belt that pairs beautifully with a peach, light blue, cream, or gold wedding gown.
2. Preserved Flower Belt – Fleurs d’un Nouveau Monde
This belt is just so sweet! Made of real, preserved flowers and greenery, we love how charming and organic this belt feels. Additionally, this belt also doubles as a wonderful wedding keepsake, as the flowers remain fresh often for years after preservation. The flowers would add a naturalistic look to any wedding gown, and would be perfect for an outdoor or rustic wedding.
3. Art Deco Wedding Sash – Millie Caro
How glamorous! Reminiscent of the roaring twenties, we chose this belt for its elegant design and luxe colors. Perhaps the boldest of our favorite belts, the intricate detailing and rich colors are bound to glitz up your gown without overpowering. This is a great option for your something blue, or even just as an accessory for a pale pink or gold gown.
4. Lovful Bridal Crystal Rhinestone Braided Wedding Dress Sash Belt – Amazon
A beautiful, classic belt with a unique twist. This is perhaps the most traditional of our favorite unique options – the lovely silver and pearl appliques are a timeless style that work with any gown. However, these belts also offer a variety of different color sashes! If you’re looking for your something blue, or maybe to add just a splash of color to your bridal belt, this is a great option for you!
5. Gold Leaf Bridal Belt – A Bit of Love Wedding
When we look at this belt, the term “Greek goddess” comes to mind. Leafy and lavish, this belt is a wonderful mixture between bridal elegance and rustic charm. The golden leaves mixed with pearl appliques give this belt a naturalistic look while still matching the sophistication of a wedding gown. We can see this being a wonderful choice for a bride looking to nature for her wedding design, and favors an organic style.
6. Summer Bridal Sash – Style R80 – Millie Caro
Another beautiful Millie Caro belt we just LOVE. Like the Art Deco Wedding Sash, the detailing in this belt is incredible. It has a great mixture of warm summer colors, and is made complete with its pansy detailing. Floral, magenta, and just a little sparkly, we think think this would be a great option for a spring or summer wedding.
7. Style Sash 98 – Moonlight
Traditional but creative. Last, but not least, we chose to feature this sash from Moonlight. As many bridal belts do, this belt calls upon classic silver, white, and crystal embellishments. However, the asymmetrical style and whimsical curled shapes lend something new and exciting to a common design. This is the kind of belt that would look amazing with any bridal gown while still adding something special to your look.
