Wedding Sashes & Belts

Wedding sashes and belts really make a wedding gown pop and accentuate a waistline.  Here are some of our favorites which can be tied in a simple ribbon or made with a hook and eye closure.  Some brides have their seamstresses sew or tack on the sash to their gown, so it stays perfectly in place.  If you're looking for a pop of color, we can custom make them in any ribbon color you desire.  Trending colors now are champagne, dove grey and blush wedding sashes.
