Accessories are one of the most important elements of a wedding day look. Not only do they complete the overall ensemble, but they’re also a great way to infuse your own personal style. Bridal belts have risen in popularity in recent years, and are perfect for showing off your waistline. Here are some of our best tips for styling your own bridal belt for your special day.
Complement Your Gown
When you first begin to choose a bridal belt, you’ll need to ensure that the belt pairs well with your wedding dress. The belt should complement your gown rather than draw attention away from it. For example, if your wedding dress is more simple, you can opt for a bold belt. However, if your gown is more dramatic such as lace or embellishments, it’s best to keep your belt style on the simpler side.
Know Your Body Type
Another important detail to consider when choosing a bridal belt is your body type. You want something that flatters your shape and shows off your best features. We recommend placing your bridal belt at your natural waistline for the most flattering and form-fitting look. Depending on the style of your wedding dress, you can also play around with the placement to find what works best for your body.
Choose a Belt Style
There are nearly endless options to choose from when selecting your bridal belt style. The best place to start is by choosing a color. Gold and silver are popular options, but there are also colored options as well – if they pair well with your wedding dress. You can also add additional details such as rhinestones, pearls, or other textures such as a flower to fit your personal style.
