Finding & Shopping For Your Plus Size Wedding Gown
- Find your ideal dress (es) – make a list of the dresses you like by searching online or thumbing through the bridal magazines. Be sure to note the a) dress maker/designer, b) style number, c) store or boutique where the dress can be purchased from. If your wedding is more than 5 months away you have plenty of time so no need to rush or get frustrated.
- Make the call – once you have your list together see if you can sort and group your dresses by the boutique or store they can be found at. Now contact the store or boutique and check that they have the style AND size you need. Make a note of the Consultant’s name. *A Quick Note*: Now if you are a shy girl and prefer a bit more privacy, try to set an appointment during the week instead of the ever-popular weekend when many brides (and grooms) will be at the stores also.
- Take a GOOD Friend Along – Take friends along whose objective is to make sure that you look stunning and the dress flatters (not hides) your best assets. Ask them to bring a camera as well (as long as it is permitted by the boutique) so that you can review your selections later in case you don’t decide on a dress at that moment or you have other shops to visit.
- Be realistic and have a sense of humor – this is an exciting time in your life but don’t take yourself too seriously. You will find the right dress!
