I spent months looking for the right wedding belt. I ended up making my own.
I absolutely loved the back of my dress…the keyhole back…the button details…everything about it really. When I was trying it on, I tried on a sparkly sash with it. I really liked how the sash broke up all of the lace on my dress, but I didn’t like the idea of a giant bow covering up the back details. I also didn’t like the $300 price tag on most of the sashes. For months I looked for a small, sparkly belt that WAS NOT a sash and had diamond-looking stones all the way around it. I couldn’t find anything. Next I started hitting up my typical craft stores looking for trim to make my own belt. I struck out there, too. Finally I found shinetrim.com. This website has many rhinestone bands for a fraction of the cost of the sashes. I purchased a yard of rhinestone band (so I had extra in case I messed up) and a rhinestone clasp to go in front. I simply cut the band to fit my waist and sewed it to the clasp. It was super easy and gave the exact look that I wanted.
