Wedding gowns are stunning on their own, but sometimes, they need that little bit of extra va-voom to really complete the dress. I have collected some examples for you on how to accessorize with belts for your bridal dresses Perth!
Built in Belts
Sometimes, wedding dresses come with a belt feature in built as part of the design. You often see this on dresses where it improves the look of the shape if the waist is clearly defined. That is why bridal belts are so amazing! It’s because they emphasize our smallest feature. They are also great at creating the illusion of curves. In built bridal belts can be a beaded applique around the natural waist or even as simple as a simple ribbon around the natural waist as you can see in the below pictures of four of our wedding gowns in store at the moment.
A bit of Sparkle
Sometimes a very simple dress just needs that little bit of bedazzle to give it that extra WOW factor. Prime examples of this are the simple lace gowns below, in store soon! The extra bling on the belt can really transform the whole dress.
Splash of Colour
Sometimes the belt can simply help break up all of the white! A coloured belt or ribbon is a good way to again draw attention to the waist and add some colour to the outfit, perhaps tie in you wedding colour theme or your something blue? Popular colours for the contrast style belt are shades of white, champagne, oyster and black, but I have also quite often seen brides opt for the same colour their bridesmaids are wearing to tie in with the whole theme. The photos below are a good example of the use of coloured belts.
Little Bow Peep
The bridal belt is not only great for adding that little bit of detail to the front of the dress but also the back. A ribbon can create a stunning back feature from a small neat bow to a cascading bow down the entirety of the train.
A bridal belt can really make your wedding dress, so feel free to ask your consultant about belt samples whilst trying dresses on in the bridal shop to see what works and how it brings some dresses to life!
