Fashion Friday: Choosing the Perfect Sash

05 15 2015

We here at UBB love BHLDN‘s bridal line, they have a generous variety of fashion relevant gowns + bridal accessories. We also love the ladies at BHLDN and today one of those cherished BHLDN reps shows us the art of the bridal waist! Thanks Jessica McGuinn for teaming up with UBB!

That moment of finding the perfect dress is a huge bridal milestone. After endless hours of perusing bridal magazines and contemplating everything from color and fabric, to silhouette and shape, you are more than ready to check “wedding day look” off your list. However, this is the perfect moment to pull together accessories that showcase your personal style and make your gown your own. One of the best ways to achieve this is with a great bridal sash. Here to provide you with tips for choosing the perfect sash to accent your wedding dress are the bridal style experts at BHLDN.

Tip #1 – Balance proportion without overwhelming your overall look.  A sash should serve as an accent rather than overpower the details in your gown. If you chose a gown with an intricate lace bodice, such as the Penelope, opt for a skinny sash with just a touch of sparkle.

Tip #2 – Accentuate (or create) a waist line!  A sash can be the perfect way to lend flattering waist definition to an otherwise linear silhouette. If you choose a column or fit and flare gown, such as the Dakota, add a wide beaded sash or elegant silk ribbon to highlight your waist.

Tip #3 – Choose complimentary motifs and shapes in both your gown and sash.  The best pairings often have artwork and/or beading that mirror one another. For instance, the floral pattern of the Seraphina Gown is perfectly translated in the buoyant blooms of the Magnolia Silk Sash.

Tip #4 – Keep in mind that bridal accessories can be altered too!  To achieve a clean line, ask your expert tailor to add a hook and eye closure to your sash. You can even have it sewn directly to your gown to avoid fussing with a bow or dealing with excess ribbon.

Ultimately, creating a bridal look that is true to your everyday style, yet elevated for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion is key. Bridal accessories help bring your look full circle; giving you that extra something for the big day!
