Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

I've been fat all my life (including as a baby), and I will never be thin. I totally accepted that fact at the age of 30! I moved on with it and have been happy ever since. Helps to have found a man that loves me for my mind and my body, too! wink.gif I'll probably lose weight to be healthier, but I'll always be a fat girl.

 

I opted out of the traditional wedding dress and got an Ivory evening gown. Much cooler for a beach wedding! Got it at Nordstroms for a steal!

I saw on another thread that a girl is using this dress for TTD! Oh, well...

The thing that get me, is when people feel like it is okay to make comments about your weight. I would NEVER do that to someone who was too thin! But especially about my boobs. I cannot help that they are big, and you know what, when you have DDD boobs, once in a while a little cleav is going to show. What am I supposed to wear a turtleneck all the time?

I think that just bugs me, the boob thing, cause they have always been huge. I think the best thing is all of my life I was under the impression that i had to be thin to meet a good guy, had to be thin, had to be thin... and then I met FI when I had gained 20 pounds, and he still loved me more than anything! So there!! Hahaha... The media needs to stop making us curvy girls feel like crap... More to love!!

 

PS I know I have said it before, but I can't say enough about Davids bridal dresses. They look great on plus size girls, way better than the really expensive ones like from Kleinfelds. When I watch that show Say Yes to the Dress and they attempt to fit the plus size girls in a gown, I want to yell, "Go to Davids! They are making you look like a cupcake!!" And I love how stores only carry dressed like up to size 10 or 12.... get real!

i can agree that david's had a lot of dresses to try on in larger sizes. i didn't buy mine from there, but i had found one there i loved. it was more of a flowy beachy dress. in the end i went big and traditional because that's what made mom cry. wink.gif

 

also, i was really worried about the wedding pics. when it comes to DWs, all i ever saw were thin, model-esque girls in the photos. my DH (funny to say that ... it's only been a week) is 6'4" and 300 lbs, and i'm 5'8" and about 215. we are NOT that ideal-looking, magazine-type couple by any stretch of the imagination, and DH hates having pictures taken and generally isn't all that affectionate of a guy either. sounds like a recipe for AWFUL wedding photos, doesn't it? before the wedding, i had expressed these concerns in a thread about my photogs, and they saw it, and were kind enough to send me a really sweet email in an attempt to put my mind at ease about our pictures. they assured me that beautiful photos come from the way you express your joy, happiness, and love, and have very little to do with how you look. after seeing the photos they took, i have to agree. when the focus of an image is my HUGE, beaming smile as i'm gazing at tom adoringly, even *i* barely notice my back fat or flabby arms (and we are all our own worst critics). really and truly, you have to just let it go. know that your FI loves you just the way you are, and trust that love will shine through in your photos no matter what your size or body type.

 

if you wanna see some pics, go to MEXICO Destination Wedding Photography, Wedding Photojournalism throughout the Mayan Riviera, click on galleries, and we're the first one: dreams cancun, thomas & lisa

Lisa, your pics are wonderful! You look gorgeous, and he looks great too! I got worried about that as well with pictures and all. I am 5'5 and chunky dunky and FI is 6'6 and lean and lanky... But we are happy, and that is what matters. You were beaming :)

Haha... we have a sign in out bathroom that says "We don't skinny dip, we chunky dunk" and everyone loves it. I ALMOST FORGOT TO TELL ALL OF YOU! I have another great website for plus size swimwear... it is 2009 Plus Size Swimwear and Swimsuits Alicia Simone I bought the 3 style convertible swimsuit and love it... It can be worn long like a dress or scrunched up, and it's a halter (more flattering). I am tempted to buy another!! Check it out!

Seeing people cry at weddings makes ME cry, so I'm just gonna go bawl for a bit now. Be back later. lol CONGRATS on a beautiful wedding and being a beautiful bride!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
