Hello lovely Bees!
I found my wedding dress this past weekend. My bridal party came to town and we went shopping on the Saturday and the Sunday. Our wedding is 50’s themed (rat pack style not rockabilly) so I ended up going with a long dress. I loved the idea of a short dress, but none I tried on felt like me (even though I wear 50’s dresses to almost every wedding I attend!). I was shocked that I loved my dress at the first shop we went to and everything the whole weekend kept being compared to it. As a plus-sized girl, I was worried I was going to hate dress shopping, and I overall had a great experience. The first shop we went to was also by far the best, the consultant there was fantastic, so nice, and so friendly and helpful! Here is a picture to show you how the dress will actually fit, the sample itself was too small, so we tried a similar shape that was closer to my size.

This is my actual dress that I put a deposit on, I just really wanted to show how good it will fit also eventually! I AM SOOOO HAPPY! The color is champagne, which I think gives it a great vintage feel! For any plus-size brides out there, I am between a street size 16-18 :)<br /><br />
