Belts—with sparkle, lace and silk organza—are a very big trend. A sparkle belt can take a simple dress to a high-fashion one. Colored sashes, as well as straps, also can add flair to a dress.

You can do a lot with adding sleeves with lace or beading. Kate Middleton brought lace back with her wedding dress. You also can do a lot of things with tulle under wedding dresses to add volume. And for your something blue, you can do a blue slip.

Our designers—Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera and Anne Barge—do their own belts, and they vary in their degree of embellishment and price. Another option is to use a plain ribbon and pin on a family broach to add a little bit of interest at the waist. We also have lace or organza boleros or cap sleeves. They can wear it in the church and take it off later.
