@clairebbbear:  I was about to suggest Tadashi Shoji until you beat me to it! I like all the dresses you posted except the first and last ones. Halters are rarely flattering unless you have narrow shoulders (which most people do not), and the last dress doesn’t look bridal at all to me. Have you looked into wearing a bridesmaid dress as a wedding dress? I’ve seen beautiful sapphire blue ones, and I’m sure many of them come in plus size to accommodate curvy women.

Good luck! I think you’re definitely on the right track with the dresses you’re using as inspiration.

I don’t know if this helps, but I made sketches. This is what the dress might look like.

 

 

 

If you want  a draped/pleated layer that’s gathered at the centre, the dress wont be a traditional A-line, because the drapes will probably hug your body a little bit. I think it would look great a little more fitted style though. I think the things you want your dress to be are very good choices and will suit you well :). Also the right undergarment can make all the difference just holding everything in place.

@clairebbbear: Great if the drawings help!

How about something like silk jersey? Or satin jersey if you want cheaper. It would be flowing and drape beautifully and very comfortable on. 

I kinda like the bolero, but it might be a little too much everything.
