Plus-Size Bride = Extra Gorgeous

Are you on the plus size of curvy?

Embrace all of your awesomeness and join the considerable ranks of the Big, Beautiful Brides.

And remember what Meghan Trainor sings: “… Every inch of you is perfect, from the bottom to the top!”



Truth is, you don’t need to be a  “stick figure, silicone Barbie doll” or a size 10 to be absolutely fabulous on your dream day. You don’t need to lose weight to squeeze into a certain size dress and you don’t need to worry about what other people think. Plus-size bride = Plus-size beautiful!

Worry about what you think. Pick a dress in the best size for you that makes you feel like a million bucks.

Here’s some inspiration:

How’s this for absolutely stunning? A strapless dream dress with an enviable décolletage, a tiara, flowing veil, lovely earrings and curly, sun-kissed hair? Pretty, pretty — very very pretty.

Isn’t this lovely? Dainty straps, an embellished bodice, a pretty jewelled piece to accentuate the waistline and a lovely, bustle-style flowing skirt. Add an elegant updo with a waist-length veil and you’ve got the fairytale gown you’ve always wanted.

Whatever style of dress you choose to wear it’s a guarantee that if you wear it with confidence and a big smile, you will absolutely dazzle! Go ahead: twirl! Dance up a storm! Walk down that aisle with pride and pizzazz because you — every inch of you — are a goddess. And this is your day to sparkle the brightest. Own it!

You don’t need to follow the latest bridal fashion trends: if strapless isn’t your thing, don’t do strapless. Do shop in body-positive bridal shops and do choose joyful, body-positive besties to accompany you on your search for the ideal gown.

If somebody else has a size or weight hangup, that’s their problem not yours. Remember, beauty doesn’t have a size. And you are very definitely beautiful. Let it shine.
