Wedding belts and sashes are the perfect way to glam up your dress and your overall look. There are many types of wedding belts and sashes out there.

As for the price it can range from $10 to $400 or more depending how intricate the designs are and the quality of the goods.

Ways to wear a sash:

2. Wear a plain sash with color to complement your wedding color. Popular choice of fabrics are satin and silk for shine or grosgrain and chiffon for less luster.

3. Embellish a sash with crystals, rhinestones, pearls, floral appliques, brooch and/or feather.

4. Incorporate something old, something new and something borrowed on the sash.
