Plus size brides

Like if this guide is helpful

If your a Plus Size bride to be, you deserve to have the wedding dress of your dreams. All to often the plus size bride to be has a major problem when trying to find her special wedding gown. 

My advice would be to phone the bridal shops in advance, asking if they supply plus size wedding gowns, and if they have a range in store for you to try on, in or around your dress size.

Always remember that wedding dress sizes vary greatly between designers, and you may need a couple of sizes bigger in a wedding gown. 

Never accept rude or abusive service from any person or store, its your special day, and your special day deserves lovely memories, including the choosing of your wedding gown.

If buying online, always be wary of where your buying from, and make sure you are ordering from genuine retailers or manufacturers, and you stick to the size charts that each one supplies as they all vary.

Always be aware of the delivery times quoted, as you have to wait a number of weeks, sometimes months for some of the suppliers to deliver, and if you have paid by pay pal and anything goes wrong you may not be able to claim your monies back due to length of time between purchase and delivery time.

If you can, order a gown that is designed with your figure in mind, not a dress that has just been taken up in size, as the proportions are very different for a size 8 to a plus size (ask your retailer about sizing).

You would be best served if you gave yourself 6-12 months to find your dream dress.

Remember, its your special day, and enjoy every minute, from begining your wedding journey. 

Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage
