Belts for Wedding Dresses

An extremely popular wedding accessory at the moment are belts for wedding dresses.
The addition of a belt to your gown can give you a totally different look. There are a lot of things that need to be taken into account when choosing a belt for your bridal gown. One is be sure that the design of the dress lends itself to wearing a belt. For instance you would never wear a belt around the waist of an empire line wedding dress. As it has been designed to flow from under the bust. And a double detail is a big no no. Also if your gown is heavily beaded i would recommend not wearing a belt as you could overdo things.

However if you have chosen a wedding dress design that is nipped at the waist then this is the perfect gown style to highlight the waistline even more.
