      Maybe you could make your own? I bought a white tank and ironed on bride to it that I got at Joann's. I alsi bought a black silk robe with bride on the back in rhinestones from victoria's secret.

          I did a search in google & found this site which you can order items already personalized:
          Bridal Hoodies - Personalized Bride Hoodies, Custom Bridal Hoodie in Rhinestone

          Also found this:
          http://www.savvysnea...suhoandswp.html

          I'm also thinking, have you tried Old Navy.com? I know that they always have hoodie/sweat pants & hoodie/short sets. You could always buy the set from there & then take it to get embroidered.

              Don't forget to check out mall's in your area. Most in my area have those little kiosk's where you can get clothing embroidered or air brushed. I know lots of brides have done that too & it wasn't expensive.

                Hi Shannon, I'm always up for a shopping challenge! :)

                What about something like this? They go together & there are a lot of sizes (& not expensive either!)

                This is cute, but I couldn't find shorts - just pants

                or
                PUMA FT Short Sleeve Terry Jacket at Zappos.com

                PUMA FT Terry Shorts at Zappos.com

                apparently this jacket isn't available, but maybe you could find it on ebay?

                ok, I know this isn't what you're looking for exactly but it's really cute!

                Your best bet might be waiting 'til like Feb or March cuz that's when the new spring/summer/cruise-wear comes out and you'll have a better selection. Good luck w/ the hunt!

                      Could you let us know if you end up finding anything? I also wear a 16/18 top and would be interested in wearing a short-sleeve zip-up hoodie on the morning of my wedding. I thought the one from Target would be perfect since they carried XL, but I read the review that said these hoodies run about 2 sizes small. Oh, the joys of being plus-size.
