**New Trend: The Ribbon Belt**


From mermaids, to pick-ups, to low dropped waists, the bridal industry continues to put forth innovative designs year after year. One of this season's newest accessories is the ribbon belt ( and a personal favorite of mine!) Designers like Lazaro and Marisa are featuring this unique touch on the runway that is just as easily worn down the aisle. With a Swarovski crystal center, the belt ties around the natural waist and flows into the most classic and feminine of detail. This is one accessory that can take the simplest of gowns and transform it into ultra chic!

My bridesmaids wore something like this -- they were sash/belt/bow things that brought in the coordinating color of my wedding. They are truly a very flattering look for most figure types.

The ribbon belt is surprisingly flattering on most brides. We've seen brides use the ribbon belt to emphasize/show off their little waists.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it without.it. Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
