20 Dress Sash Styles Your Bridal Shop Won’t Carry

You found the perfect wedding dress… now it’s time to make it your own! A dress sash – tied around the waist – can embellish any gown with your own distinct personal style. Today, we’re bringing you twenty dress sash styles you can’t find at a bridal shop: these are all handmade with two hands by the lovely SparkleSM! If you crave individuality, have a discerning taste, or want a custom dress sash made just for you, look no further! Read on to see which dress sash styles made the cut, why we love ’em, and find out which dress sash was given the Emmaline Bride Top Pick approval. Enjoy!

20 Dress Sash Styles

1. Rosemary

Soft satin ribbon + tons of sparkle caught our eye on this dress sash! We love how the rhinestones surround the ribbon so it doesn’t get lost in the same shade of your wedding dress.

2. Bridgit

This strikingly beautiful dress sash features diamond cut rhinestones for a unique look.

3. Lilah

This dress sash features repeating bright white satin bows with rhinestones and crystals. Perfect for the bride and works well for a bridesmaid or flower girl sash, too.

4. Cole

Four rows of sparkle, anyone? This sparkly dress sash features rhinestones and a 4″ chartreuse flower embellishment.

5. Shoshanna

This sash combines both diamond and round cut rhinestones to create a diamond-shaped dress sash centerpiece.

6. Willa

Looking for something blue? The Willa has you covered with blue lucite stones across a satin ribbon in your choice of color.

7. Leighton

The Leighton is another “something blue” sash can be worn down the aisle, paired with bridesmaid dresses, or worn as a reception dress embellishment.

8. Mattie

If you love classic pearls, this is the wedding sash for you! Crystals, iridescent beads, and a side burst of pearls combine to form this elegant aisle-ready dress sash.

9. Mckenna

This bauble-filled sash features a smoky quartz/purple color crafted with lucite stone. Wear on your wedding day – and beyond! – with a favorite little black dress.

10. Felicity

Felicity is similar to Cole (#4 above) but features a poppy pink + yellow flower piece in lieu of chartreuse. If you like the rhinestones on either of these sashes but prefer another color, just ask!

11. Scarlet

For a true stunner, check out the Scarlet sash: it’s a mix between modern with a vintage feel, and features rhinestones completely around the dress. Plus, the elegant focal piece is “draped” ever so slightly to make a statement.

12. Yardley

The Yardley sash reminds us of Rosemary (#1 above) but with two rows of rhinestones + satin ribbon instead of one.

13. Gracelyn

This dress sash features lucite stones in clear and black with emerald, marquise, round, and square shapes and black seed beads provide an elegant trim. You’ll get plenty of use with this dress sash on the big day – and beyond!

14. Cadence

This dress sash is reminiscent of 1920’s charm! Sophisticated rounds of crystals makes this one stand-out statement piece.

15. Maia

Rhinestones with “braiding” makes Maia a must for 2012.

16. Violet

If your gown already has enough sparkle, opt for a sparkly-free dress sash instead like the Violet. The colorful satin ribbon and soft organza flower tie in pretty layers of purple + pink just in time for summer wedding season.

17. Corinne

For the bride who wants sparkle and a little pop of color, the Corinne is perfect! Rhinestones on this sash are pieced together in a diamond-shape pattern with a lovely yellow flower for embellishment.

18. Kendell

Simple, sweet, and elegant are three words to describe the Kendell, which features rows of pearl beads and crystals.

19. Savannah

Savannah features a black satin ribbon and a white 4.75″ fabric flower with rhinestone stamens and a larger rhinestone centerpiece.

20. Emilie

Finally, last but not least, the Emilie – our EB staff top pick! – features a rhinestone studded scroll pattern with beading, a silky satin ribbon weaved throughout, and a large rhinestone jeweled brooch. The brooch is detachable, which makes this our favorite! Wear the sash with the brooch for your wedding; turn it into a pin or hair accessory as a keepsake after the big day.
