Don't you just go swoon over all those belts, bows, sashes, trims and ribbons you see gracing bridal wear lately? Thanks to all you brides out there daring to go your own way, designers are free to really experiment. By way of ribbons, trims and sashes, we artists have introduced color and a different textures into the mix . The above gown is sashed in back with with embroidered, beaded tan and beige taffeta ribbon that works it's way down a detachable train.

Above: The best example of a self belt (means made out of the same fabric as the dress). Georgette linen and striped ribbon combine to make up this belt punctuated with a fabric rose.
