Calling all Plus Sized Brides...

Recommended Posts

Here's what I did-

I went to David's Bridal because as all the girls have said, they have a HUGE selection. I figured out what styles looked good on me. Once you figure out the cut that looks best, then you can have fun and figure out what details you like best. I wasn't able to officially try on my dress, but I knew how the specific style looked on me. I ended up so happy with my choice.

One plus for Davids Bridal is that they allow you to take pictures of yourself in the dress. Every other bridal store i went to would not allow pictures until you purchase the dress. I'm sure this is so that you can't take the picture to a seamstress and have the dress replicated, which i completely understand. But I also think you don't know what you look like until you see your self in a picture. So..... if someone goes with you and they just happen to have a camera phone...

Ya Courtney- I hated the not being able to take pictures either. Which I still don't really get because if it were a fear of having a seamstress replicate it, wouldn't it be just as easy to find a pic online? Of course, I didn't go to any shops that didn't give the name of the designer so I suppose finding the dress without a name would be even harder, if not impossible.

Try Tadashi. tadashicollection.com

They go up to 18 and xxxl on some styles. They have several Sprin 08 dresses that come in ivory, white, pearl, silver, etc.

 

I ordered a long silver gown but didn't like it on me but loved a cocktail dress that I got from them

Nia Long at an Essence Luncheon (Tadashi Collection Weblog)

 

and I am having it lengthened to a full length dress.

Update ladies....thanks to all of your suggestions, (and especially Desiree, my wedding date twin) I was able to find a dress! I got a Demetrios ivory/nude colored lace a-line. It is gorgeous and very romantic. I went to Macys Bridal ultimately because they have a sizable selection of plus sized to try on. I'll post a pic when i get them from my MOH. So excited! I guess its official now :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
