Found your dream dress? Then now’s the time to accessorise. And, if you love a bit of glitter and sparkle, then your wedding day really is the time to indulge. Or perhaps you just want a subtle touch of waist-enhancing shimmer? In either case, a bridal belt is the accessory to start with…

Why should I wear a bridal belt?

A bridal belt is a unique way to personalise your dress but it does more than just look pretty. It’s also a clever way of drawing attention to your beautiful waistline and breaking up the length of the dress. Plus, you can use a belt to transform your outfit from day to night. For example, one of our lace jackets is ideal for a romantic ceremony look. Then, for the evening, replace it with a dramatic faux fur bolero and a glitzy belt and - hey presto - you have a brand new glamorous look!

So many beautiful belts, so little time…

And, if you’re not a sparkle fan, don’t worry. We have a treasure trove of belts to suit every style. There's everything from a simple pleated Mikado sash and understated pearls to sparkling statement belts featuring crystals, diamantés and more. Most of our belts are also available in one size, on a long ribbon or tulle sash, so they fit every waistline perfectly.

Alternatively, the embellishments on many of our belts can be easily removed and sewn straight onto your dress if you prefer. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even use our belts as straps, a choker, a headband, under the bust or even placed along a neckline. Choices, choices!

To help you choose your belt, our bridal experts have put together a handy guide to our most popular styles below. So, read on to find the perfect piece of waist-enhancing sparkle to suit you…
