Sashes or belts are one of the most commonly used accents for wedding gowns. Beaded, embroidered, ruched, or tied in a bow, a sash can give your gown an instant romantic touch.
Depending on where the sash is placed--along the waistline, hips, or below the bustline (creating an empire waistline)--this can serve different functions. A gown with a cinched waist is ideal if a bride wants to look curvier. For gowns with empire waistbands, a belt gives the bust a lift as it draws the attention to the neckline. In the case of sashes placed around the hips, the torso is given added length while giving emphasis to the hips.
