The choice of accessories for the bride is as wide as the range of dresses for the wedding. Lacy umbrellas, cute hats, fur coats, boots — of all these items, brides choose the most successful and suitable for their image. It is a pity that such an accessory as a belt is often forgotten and overlooked. Although undeserved. It is the belt that can make the dress interesting, and the image harmonious. You can even focus on the belt by choosing a color for it that is consonant with the overall style of the wedding. Although this is not the only solution that is available for modern brides.
Belt that repeats the finish
If the wedding dress has an embroidered neckline with rhinestones, then a silk belt with a scattering of sequins or rhinestones will be a very good solution. You can even minimize the number of jewelry, since such an elegant and bright belt will adequately decorate the image. Just think, such a small shining element is able to bring solemnity and luxury.
A neat belt embroidered with shining elements will look beautiful on any fabric: satin will take on a festive look, and matte tulle or light lace will blend harmoniously into the fabric of the upper part of the outfit.
This also applies to styles. The mermaid dress, as you know, fits the figure very tightly. So why not make your waist even slimmer with a well-chosen belt and give your figure the outlines characteristic of a sandy body type.
For petite brides, it’s generally undesirable to choose a dress with a skirt that flares out at knee height, but adding a belt can save the day and look your best.
There is another option for using an embroidered belt — this is a puffy dress. In this image, the lush bottom already looks advantageous against the background of the contrast with the fragility of the upper part of the dress, but with a belt the bride will become even more slender.
In a satin, lace or textured dress, a belt that repeats the trim of the sleeve, straps or neckline will look incomparable.
Instead of an embroidered belt, you can use a simple satin, contrasting in color to the dress and one tone with a skirt or train hem.
Belts with floral elements and appliqués
Unexpectedly, belts look beautiful in the images of brides, in which there is volume and there is a removable boutonniere, a large appliqué or any other large decor. With the help of such an addition, you can set the style of the whole image, make a laconic dress interesting or shift the focus to the waist.
Don’t be afraid to choose wide belts with a fairly large decorative element — this can allow you to change your look throughout the celebration.
If the organization of a wedding is associated with a certain style, then choosing a dress for the bride becomes very complicated. A belt can help, which will match the style of the celebration and give the dress originality. For example, for a retro-style wedding, you can choose a regular dress, but complement it with a hat, gloves and a belt that will reflect the fashion of that time.
Don’t miss the wide belts that turn into a large bow at the back.
Even for a classic wedding, such an extravagant element as a belt with voluminous details would be appropriate. It can be made wide and attach a voluminous boutonniere.
A belt with a flower will harmoniously look on a lace dress. There will be no place for unnecessary surprise or impudence.
Strict, clear and regular lines that are inherent in ball gowns and A‑line dresses can be diluted with an asymmetrical belt. Although the element is uncomplicated, but how much it can bring with it: romance, playfulness, ease and peculiarity of the image.
Be sure to think about the decor that will decorate the belt. Here everything depends only on your imagination: a big bow or a large stone, a flower or embroidery…
It seems that a dress with a voluminous skirt is already perfect and cannot look better. But if you add a large bow on the side part, then it immediately becomes more delicate and very interesting. And this is no longer just a beautiful fluffy dress, this is the image of a princess, in which every detail is thought out and brought to perfection.
We are accustomed to associate a straight silhouette with strict morals. Well, what about a special mood, without which the image will be boring? This is where the original belt will fit, which will bring with it freshness and a solemn mood.
thin sashes for weddings
The belt does not have to be large, voluminous or have decorations from large decorative elements. It may be completely invisible, but it is so important in the image of the bride. The sophistication that this detail brings with it can completely transform a dress, turning it from simple to incredibly luxurious.
If there are classic lines and lace in the dress, then the radiance at the waist, created from silver and pearls, just asks for it. In a straight, simple and strict cut, a thin shining belt will look very good. Beauty is often hidden in brevity.
If the dress is made in strict accordance with the Greek style or has just a hint of it, then again a thin belt will be appropriate. Straight lines of freely flowing fabric with draperies will flow along the body, and the belt will highlight the slimness of the figure. It is a thin belt that will emphasize the high waist and make it more feminine. In this case, it is not necessary to decorate the belt with accessories, a simple, but necessarily exquisite radiance will be enough.
Dresses with belts are increasingly appearing in European wedding fashion. Follow the example of European brides and be irresistible in your original image.
