20 Dress Sash Styles
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.
This strikingly beautiful dress sash features diamond cut rhinestones for a unique look.
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.
Four rows of sparkle, anyone? This sparkly dress sash features rhinestones and a 4″ chartreuse flower embellishment.
This sash combines both diamond and round cut rhinestones to create a diamond-shaped dress sash centerpiece.
Looking for something blue? The Willa has you covered with blue lucite stones across a satin ribbon in your choice of color.
The Leighton is another “something blue” sash can be worn down the aisle, paired with bridesmaid dresses, or worn as a reception dress embellishment.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The Yardley sash reminds us of Rosemary (#1 above) but with two rows of rhinestones + satin ribbon instead of one.
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!
This dress sash is reminiscent of 1920’s charm! Sophisticated rounds of crystals makes this one stand-out statement piece.
Rhinestones with “braiding” makes Maia a must for 2012.
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.
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.
Simple, sweet, and elegant are three words to describe the Kendell, which features rows of pearl beads and crystals.
Savannah features a black satin ribbon and a white 4.75″ fabric flower with rhinestone stamens and a larger rhinestone centerpiece.
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.
