What to Look for in a Wedding Dress Belt
From rhinestones to crystals to pearls, wedding dress belts come adorned in all kinds of materials. Deciding on the type of bling and the amount really depends on your personal style and your wedding dress. For those rocking a simple dress or jumpsuit, you can add some sparkle with a belt that has both crystals and pearls like David's Bridal Infinity Belt. Also keep in mind what jewelry you'll be wearing, so you can coordinate. If you rather leave the sparkle to your necklace and earnings, you can go with a taffeta sash like the Catrine Bow Sash. The oversized bow will still make a statement.
Think about your wedding theme and dress when deciding what, if any colors, to incorporate into your belt. Some brides opt for white belts while others add something blue like Lucy's Bridal Crystal Belt. Most designs let you choose the underlying ribbon and this is a great way to add a pop of color, like a subtle pink in Yanstar's Crystal Pearl Belt. If you are choosing between a gold or silver option, think about the jewelry you'll be wearing and going with the same tone.
Needless to say, a belt should fit you correctly. Be sure to try the belt on with your dress to ensure it's not too tight or loose. We like how Eloquii's Crystal Belt comes in extended sizes.
Should I wear a wedding dress belt?
Some dresses thrive with an extra touch of glam, and your wedding day look could be elevated with this accessory. If you're considering wearing a wedding dress belt, it's always a good idea to try on a few styles when selecting your gown.
Should my bridal belt match my dress?
It all depends on your personal style and what will make you feel most comfortable on your special day. However, a bridal belt should compliment your gown and/or color scheme. Having a garden wedding? Play up the nature theme with nature details like flowers or leafs like in this Gold Leaf Bridal Belt. For the fun-loving summer bride, Millieicaro’s Summer Bridal Sash feels extra festive.
Are wedding dress belts expensive?
Wedding dress belts may sometimes come with a higher price tag—especially if they're heavily embellished or hand beaded. However, there are plenty of budget-friendly styles, like Lulus Silver Rhinestone Belt, that are just as decadent without a hefty price tag.
