Ok, I have fell in love with this dress the moment I tried it on.  The only thing I thought was it might be too full at the bottom for a destination wedding especially for a plus sized girl like me....  what are your thoughts?  


Also, belt or no belt?

I think it is beautiful and very flattering. Definitely yes on the belt - I feel like it draws your eye up a little bit and provides a nice balance to the full bottom. And of course gives you a great shape! Love the sweetheart neckline as well.


When I started planning a destination wedding I was a little surprised that so many brides wear what would not be considered a typical "beach" dress - but I totally 100% think you should wear whatever you want! There are lots of brides on here with full dresses! Personally, I worry about getting hot but my wedding is also in June and I sweat like it is my job ;)

@GingerBride that dress looks gorgeous on you! I don't think it's too full on the bottom and think it's a nice silhouette on you. I love the belt as it adds an embellishment and gives you an hour glass figure.

And don't you worry about not wearing a "destination" wedding gown. You wear whatever you want to wear, it's your wedding day!

The dress looks soo pretty on you. I love the neckline and the belt. I am a larger lady but have ordered one size down....hopefully I will fit in it when it arrives xx

Thank you so much ladies!  It means a great deal as I was quite shy to post my picture.  This was the first dress I tried on and it was the only picture I kept because it was the one that made me feel like me and a bride.  Looks like I will be saying yes to the dress!!

    I think it's a great choice! It looks fantastic and gives you a really nice shape that compliments your curves. I love the full bottom look - especially the layered type like this one :)

    It's gorgeous!! And absolutely not too full! You should see mine! lol Positively with the belt. It adds the necessary bling!!

    Oh yes - who is the designer by the way?? It really is pretty.
