I went to the Alfred Angelo bridal boutique a couple weeks ago and bought my dress! I tried on about 8 dresses and none of them really spoke to me… until I saw the Sleeping Beauty dress. The biggest size they had was an 18, and me being a 22, I tried… but no cigar. BUT! I had an idea… I asked my bridal consultant (who was also plus size) to try it on for me. She said yes! Even though she is a size 20, she was able to squeeze into it! She came out of the dressing room and I fell in LOVE with the dress. I was able to see myself wearing that dress on my wedding day, and THAT was the best part about it all.
I can’t wait to get it in October! I have been vigorosly losing weight so I look amazing on my wedding day in November.
Have any of you had a similar experience? My bridal consultant was AMAZING! I’m so glad she agreed to do a little fashion show for me. Because of her, I have my dress!!!

That’s really awesome! I had a terrible time with the consultant, so much so that I found my dress then ordered it online because I was so upset with them. So it’s great to hear about a consultant going the “extra mile” for their client. I’m so happy for you! And I can’t wait to see you in the dress!!!

@juliette.eliza: I have heard so many other Bees talk about their bad experiences. I think I went into my appointment with a lot of hesitation so I was pleasantly surprised! As soon as I ordered it, I felt… bridal. Haha.

I had the most wonderful consultant at my Alfred Angelo store as well! Pretty sure I have decided on a different designer so I wont end up getting my dress there but I kind of wish I could because she was so fabulous!! Happy to hear you found your dress! Can’t wait for pics!

I know how it is I couldnt try my dress on either they only had a size 14. Im a street size 24 so no way that was working out lol but I held it up to me and loved it so I had to order it. Nothing else compared. I had an amazing consultant too. We actually have became friends and she is comming to my wedding 🙂 My dress just came in and I went to try it on for the very first time today. Its beautiful and im so happy I got it!
