Accent your waist with a belt or sash, the go-to accessory to add both decoration and personalization to a wedding dress. Wedding gowns that are clean, with minimal or no ornamentation, allow brides to use the dress as a canvas to “decorate” and style as they see fit. The same dress can look vintage or modern, glamorous or simple depending on which bridal accessories are used to complement it.

Some wedding gowns are made with a belt to match, allowing designers to offer brides what they think will be a perfect fit. Here are some dress-belt designs from the runway, and bridal accessory lines you may want to check out.

Dennis Basso added a hand beaded and embellished belt to this strapless hand pleated fit and flare gown.

JLM Couture used horsehair, a stiff sheer material, enhanced with metallic beads, to add some personality to a clean ivory gown.

Alfred Angelo used a white satin belt with embroidery and beading front and center to further define a waistline on this basque waist ball gown.

A number of accessory designers hopped on the waist-detail bandwagon and are creating chic accessories giving brides more options to choose from, check out their designs for even more options:

The Ball Gown is Back

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

After a few seasons of seeing sexy silhouettes on the runway, designers have brought back the classic ball gown. Every designer featured a number of show stoppers with a voluminous skirt made from layers of soft tulle or stiff taffeta, which gives a ball gown a classic dome-like shape. Bodices were embellished with embroidery, beading, crystals, or left unadorned with fabric draped and pleated in elegant ways. Strapless necklines took a backseat to asymmetrical and illusion necklines made from tulle or lace, capped and long sheer sleeves, revealing that Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton wedding gown still inspires designers and brides. Above are three of our favorite ball gowns from the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runway shows:

Dennis Basso, available exclusively at Kleinfeld in New York, layered tissue cut organza to create a light as air gown perfect for any black-tie setting. Brides looking for something a little more avant garde should slip into Marchesa’s Femke design. The three-dimensional floral design is made from silk gazar petals draped into blooming flowers over a strapless ball gown. For a mix of both classic and modern Vera Wang embellished this ball gown’s bodice with ribbon embroidery and paired it with a silk organza flange skirt.
