I haven’t browsed through all of your recaps yet, but I just wanted to say that I’ve always been afraid of getting married. I’m a big girl, and I’m kind of short and I’ve always been made to feel like I won’t be pretty if I’m not thin. But seeing pictures like yours made me realize that I’m going to look pretty darn hot on my wedding day. So I’m really glad you, and other plus sized brides, share your photos. It really helps some of us shy girls:)

Your pictures are lovely and you looked wonderful!

I’ve been feeling down about myself lately, thinking I was going to be an ugly bride with gorgeous bridesmaids but after seeing your pictures and reading your recaps, you’ve given me hope. You were a gorgeous bride and it looks like you had an amazing wedding. Congratulations!

I am a big girl, and I am also having a vow renewal. It will be somewhat like a wedding but mostly a celebration of 15 years of marriage and 7 wonderful children we’ve raised together. Even knowing this, I cringe at the thought of being on display for all to pick me apart. But then I saw your recaps and I am reminded that if I focus on the moment, and purpose I will be beautiful. Thank you for sharing your special day with us.

I’ve been afraid of the same thing, I always assumed I would feel large and ugly on my wedding day….but you eased those fears. You looked fantastic!! The recaps were awesome, your vow renewal was gorgeous!!

you ARE beautiful! i wish there wasn’t this “stigma” that follows those who are plus-sized. society is so concerned with numbers. i have struggled with my eating disorder since i was 11 and all of my life i have always been so preoccuiped with 1 number. i measure(d) my worth with that. in this country if it’s not one way it’s another. people need to be seen for WHO they are, not HOW MUCH of them there is. to me, being beautiful on the inside is the ONLY thing that should matter. time maraches on, beauty and body image give way to gravity and aging…and what are you left with? – a lot of really UGLY people!! hah!

i think your wedding is one of the most beautiful ones i have seen on here and YOU are definitely one of the most beautiful brides! your confidence shines through in every picture…and that is the way it should be. congrats on your wedding, your new happy life and being a beautiful person INSIDE AND OUT!!!
