Wedding belts – how to wear them
Jesus Peiro and Justin Alexander define the waist with an oversized bow and a bejewelled belt

Wedding belts are big news on the catwalk, with everything from waist-enhancing statement pieces to, bejewelled focal points and bold bows. What we love about the trend for wedding belts is that it’s a great way to inject your personal style into even the plainest white gown. Here are some catwalk styles to inspire you

The bold colour pop

Waist defining colour pops from Jesus Peiro and Patricia Avendano


Adding a colour pop to your wedding-day ensemble is a great way to introduce an individual twist – and you can also use it to introduce matching accents across all of your accessories or pick up on your wedding theme colours. Here, Jesus Peiró goes for a stunning turquoise-encrusted design, while Patricia Avendaño adds a bolder metallic hue, picking up on the coppery tones of a layered train.

The standout bow

Bows define the waist and can be used to add a fairytale element or 1950s elegance


Bow belts are a key trend for wedding gowns – and so versatile. A lightweight belt combined with an ethereal gown – as with this Jesus Peiró dress (left) – adds a decadent flourish. But the effect is pure 1950s chic when paired with a more tailored look, as with Justin Alexander’s elegant silk ballgown (right).

The bejewelled focal point

Bejewelled belts are one of the most versatile of all styles – and justly popular among brides because these glittering additions can be co-ordinated easily with other bridal accessories – and you get a fabulous accessory to wear for parties after the big day. Pronovias introduces a slimline design as the perfect foil to a beautifully embellished bodice, while Patricia Avendaño makes the belt the star on a romantic gown with plain top and full tulle skirt.

Statement wedding belts add a fashion-forward edge to your look and we particularly like the use of unusual textural combinations, as with this YolanCris 3D-effect wide belt and Immaculada Garcia’s chunky rope-clasp style.

Soft cummerband styles are the perfect way to show off a slim waist and can help to define a full gown, as with this lovely Cymbeline ensemble (left). Meanwhile, Immaculada Garcia adds an eastern flavour to an elegant white ensemble with a softly patterned silk wrap belt (right).
