I would please like all plus size brides in their wedding dresses. I'm a plus size girl, a size 18UK and I am dreading pictures and looking like a hippo walking down the aisle so I would love to see curvy girls rocking their wedding dresses just to reassure myself that I can be plus size girl and be fabulous!! My wedding dress was strapless but I have added an off the shoulder reverse jacket thing to go over the top if that makes sense which is also 3/4 sleeves because i really dont like my arms!
Please attach some photos of your big day
Thanks in advance
This is the jacket
and this is the dress without the jacket on top (they look great together)
That dress and jacket is gorgeous! I really like the jacket, and will add a wonderful look to the overall dress. Great choice!
I am a plus sized bride as well, I am a street size 16/18 and in dresses I am a size 20.
I don't have any wedding photos, but I have photos of me in my dress when I tried it on for the second time, it is not altered yet. Igonore the pink bra, my bridal lingerie didn't come in on time, so I had to rock the pink during my fitting. >_
Side note: You'll be beautiful on your wedding day, you can be big and fabulous! Don't worry, I know that isn't really reassuring, but seriously, you'll be beautiful and everyone will love how you look, and on the big day you're going to feel wonderful.
I bet you'll look wonderful on your big day! Before I started dress shopping, I was positive I'd feel like a cow in a wedding dress, but I was amazed at how flattering they were! I tried on probably ~15 dresses and there were only a couple that I even thought about my weight in.
Once I found my dress, and again once it came in the correct size, I knew I'd have no reason to think about being plus size. I feel amazing in it, and even looking at crappy cellphone pics of me at the dressing room after a long day, feeling dingy and tired, I still think I look great!
So I wouldn't worry too much :) I think your dress/jacket combo will look awesome.
My dress is strapless, and I thought about getting a bolero jacket as well. However, my dress has a lot of intricate detail, so I don't want to overpower it. The jacket you posted was lovely, and will look nice with your dress.
Here I am in my dress. It's Alfred Angelo 2310.
p.s. Don't mind my messy hair.
i don't think you posted the picture Hun!
sorry I can see it now! Also, what size clothes are you Hun?
I had the best dress in the world. Alfred Angelo Belle 206. Size 18 (usa).
It came with an optional sash thingie for the shoulders, but it felt constricting (it bunched if i lifted my arms). I rocked it bare shouldered and I was a beautiful disney princess.
I was definitely a UK 16 on my wedding day.
Here is mine (size 18 US):
@acciotoni: Your dress is beautiful!! May I ask what designer and model??
Mine was a 16 from AA and I felt amazing in it :D
@lovelove1028: Thanks! I love it. It's by Sweetheart, a very small designer (I'm assuming, as no one has heard of it, even on the bee! lol) so I'm not sure how easily you'd be able to find a retailer, but I think it's style #5964!
@lauren230213: The dress I tried on was a U.S. 24, but I'm a size 18. I'm ordering it in an 18, and hoping I don't gain any weight before the wedding, hahaha!
You all look so beautiful!!
@acciotoni: It's gorgeous, and you look PERFECT in it!! I already have my dress, but yours looks somewhat similar! Detail on the neckline and hip, and the ruching... :)
I was unsure of how my photos would come out but I am OBSESSED with them. Our photographer was able to capture our joy and everything else fell by the wayside. My dress was beautiful and that was captured, but my armfat and doublechin were captured too but not as big of a deal because we were so happy. Does that make sense? Once the day comes, enjoy getting married to your love and being surrounded by your favorite people and the photos will reflect that. Here are a few of us on our day:
Size 16 wedding dress. I love how my pictures came out. I was so nervous I would have a double chin and arm fat in every shot, but I didnt. Happiness and love over takes all those silly worries on the big day.
I love your dress and jacket and a size 18UK is gorgeous! you are going to look amazing. I was a size 16US when I got married and I rocked it :D
oh and if you are not comfortable showing your arms then wear the jacket the whole time. i know people usually say to embrace it but honestly, you know yourself well and if you are uncomfortable with your arms then hide them and bring attention to your other attributes (face, waist, chest, etc) :D
I wear 20/22 and my dress is an 18.
I'm not married yet, so this is me in the sample at the store. My dress still needs the alterations made!
I wore a 20. Maggie Sottero Priscilla.
I'm a 14 usually, dress is a 16
Street size 16 here!
Still waiting on final alterations - I'm a UK 18
I just wanted to say everyone who has posted so far looks absolutely stunning. Never be ashamed of your curves. Im a street size 12/14 with a large chest (36 F). I was very worried about going dress shopping. My advice is to just have fun and try not to stress if you don't fit into the small sample sizes! You will find something you love!! Below is the dress I chose (corsets work wonders!)
I just ordered my dress today! I'm a street size 18 and I ordered an 18W but it will have to be taken in a bit around the chest. It's a Galina from David's Bridal and it is SO FUN which is exactly what I wanted! Pictures really don't do it justice either... it's so pretty in person :)
@nativedesires: I just adore all the wedding pictures you post. You look amazing and both of you are just so so so so happy!
@glasgowbound thanks so much for saying that !!! It was a beautiful day and I was extremely happy
This board makes me really happy! I was a plus size bride (still am haha) and it was very hard to feel pretty let alone beautiful on my wedding day, but looking back, I loved my dress!
Im a size 15/16 and was worried about the same thing.... the picture I chose to post is because its shows how I felt on my wedding day, beautiful, fierce, and like everyone had all eyes on me! Once you get to that day you'll be marrying the man of your dreams and he will look at you like you are the most beautiful woman in the world and all those fears just melt away!
All of you ladies look amazing!....When I get married next month, I will be a 48 yr old plus sized encore bride..lol I got it all goin on! so I chose to do something a bit different, this pic is the day my dress came in, so forgive the bra straps..it also comes with a jacket and a wrap, I can choose which way i want to wear it
I'm a street size 16-18 this is an 18
lauren230213 that dress is beautiful, I am in love with that Jacket!!! I wonder If something like that would go with mine.... hmmmm lol. You will look beautiful! be confident!
Im a size 24, LOVE LOVE LOVE my maggie sottero dress :) (not altered yet)
lauren230213 PS. Can I have the link to that jacket please :)
@lauren230213: LOVE that jacket!!!
Here i am... DB size 20.
Hi everyone, I'm very much larger than the average girl at 6'1'' and a pretty curvy size 12 (wedding dress was orderd at a size 16 and then the top was altered to around a bridal size 12)... luckily i found a dress that accentuated my waist without making my look like a giant! It's a justin Alexander 8610
This is my dress!! It's very simple but very comfortable. And most importantly,I feel beautiful when I put it on!! just remember, your man loves you just the way you are, if he didn't he wouldn't be marrying you!! So enjoy your day!
You will look great no matter what. A happy bride is a beautiful bride!!
