There was a request for a board for plus size brides a few months ago:
I think it would be great to have a board for plus sized brides (or plus size issues in general). We have many wedding planning issues specific to us, and I think it would be helpful for us plus sized brides to have more of a presence. This would not be a diet/exercise type of board, but instead a comfortable place where we can share our concerns/considerations, and be recognized for being beautiful no matter our size!
We’d love to hear more from you guys about the idea. Please vote or comment on the ideas link!
Or feel free to comment here too… thanks!

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
If we go that route, we could sure use a tall (*cough*) and petite one too!

totally agree with scissors. I definitly wont be able to use the tall board though

I always thought 14 was a regular size…but I quickly learned that it’s plus when it comes to the wedding industry. So I would love a plus board (and a 5-11 I wouldn’t say no to a tall board either!)

Feel free to add any more ideas for boards to the ideas forum!
Would love to hear feedback on this specific board…

I would love to see a Plus Size board! I am neither that tall or that short…but I second that tall and petite boards would be nice.

I’m not sure about segmenting users based on size…how do we determine who falls into that category?

I dont think it was about branding users and stamping them one way or the other. It was another forum, like 20 something, 30 something, encore, etc.

I actually agree with Gemstone. I think it may feel like there is segregation by size. Having a dress board, I think, should be enough.

By that logic, the 20-something, 30-something, etc boards should go because they’re ageist.
It’s a specific demographic and people are interesting in having it. No one is required to post there and no one is being branded a Plus Size bride. It’s not like someone from WeddingBee is coming out, measuring you and saying “Yeah and if we see you in Petites, we’re totally coming back and breaking your keyboard.”
If there’s a crowd interest in any demo, let it happen. It’s great for any specific bridal interest to have a venue to discuss their specific concerns.
