Bridal sashes are a wedding dress standard. And while cinching your waist is a surefire way to flaunt your curves, there are more options than just the classic ribbon-tied sashes. This season, designers took it one step further by showing more structured and statement-making waist-cinchers. Whether it was an ultra-sleek and modern silver metallic belt or just a thicker cut of fabric, these belts are totally fashion forward. Whether you're looking for a figure-flattering accessory, or you want added embellishments, consider trying this fashionable wedding dress trend.

Here, a few looks from recent bridal runways that feature of-the-moment belts!

Romona Keveza Collection: This season, Keveza was the biggest belt proponent, with design after design walking down her Spring 2015 runway featuring a thick metallic band. These mid-waist additions are so eye-catching that they even come off as futuristic! In the best possible way, of course.

Belt Trend Monique Lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier: We've already compared this look to a piece of chic outerwear, so it's no surprise that the tulle overskirt's band is a thick piece of fabric that resembles a belt.

Belt Trend Reem Acra

Reem Acra: Offsetting the design's inherently ethereal feel, the severity of this thicker white band adds drama and contrast to an otherwise soft and romantic silhouette.
