I’m trying to help the bride…I am her matron of honor. There are 8 girls in the wedding. One of them is a plus size, probably a 20. We can’t seem to find a bridal shop that has dresses she can try on, or that go up to that size.
We are in North Jersey. Any suggestions other than Davids Bridal?

are you against buying online?
i bought my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from http://www.lightinthebox.com and they turned out lovely
i was really skeptical of buying online for a site i never heard of prior to wedding planning but they look beautiful and are great quality
I have 5 BMs – 1 is a 24 and the rest between a 2 and 8 – i picked a dress and they all ordered their own.
here is the one i chose for them

I don’t have any suggestions other than Davids Bridal. Everwhere we went looking only had samples in 6, 8, and 10. Could you go to Davids so she could get an idea of what type of shape will work for her and then she will know what type of style to order from the other stores.

@totheislnds: Thanks for the info. I will pass it along to the bride. Not sure if she will want to order online, but I’m going to give it a shot!

@Lily2323: We did go to Davids Bridal and got some ideas. She really wasn’t happy with the dresses they ordered, but she did find the styles she liked. I have called so many other shops but they are all telling us the same thing, they only carry the sample sizes, up to a 12. She just doesn’t want the Bridesmaid or Best Man (her futre sis in law) to feel uncomfortable. I have suggested they go alone together to make the process a bit easier. Thanks for the help!!
