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:

Cover Up With One of These Must-Have Bridal Accessories

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

A bride may want to order a cover up for her wedding dress because she wants her arms covered for a religious wedding ceremony, she’s getting married in winter or a cold climate, or simply that the cover up in question is so fabulous she can’t get married without it!

Brides still shopping for their wedding-day look may find it hard to resist the jackets, boleros, shrugs and other cover ups making their way down the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runways. Styles range from fur and faux fur, in white as well as other colors, sheer jackets, “pop overs” that literally pop right over you head in lace or tulle, and organza boleros with three-dimensional detailing.

Here you can see three different cover up styles that editors saw on the runways:

Alfred Angelo designed a Venise lace jacket with white bridal buttons up the back. One can easily switch from the solemn ceremony setting to the party atmosphere of a wedding reception in a matter of seconds.

JLM Couture showed a fur bolero with crystal embellished tulle inserts, the perfect accessory for a winter wedding even if it’s not snowing outside.

Exclusive to David’s Bridal stores is this embroidered tulle pop-over with three covered buttons in the back. The metallic thread adds a bit of shimmer to a bride’s wedding-day look.

Bridal Market Recap: JLM Couture {Part II}

Here’s Part II of my review of the JLM Couture collections with gowns from Alvina Valenta, Tara Keely and Lazaro:

Tara Keely – You don’t see many ball gowns with box pleats these days.  I think when I started working in bridal you saw a lot more of them.  This mikado satin ball gown has a pleated bodice with sweetheart neckline, a crystal belt for just a touch of sparkle and a full ball gown skirt with a chapel train and pockets, which I’ll discuss next.
