@Yellowstone2012:  I am not going (Im not even sure what it is to be honest). I am assuming you have to wear a bridal gown? Davids Bridal usually has some inexpensive dresses in our size! Also try craigslist

I went both times the event came to my area…. I’m not a full-figured girl, but my bridesmaids and I combed through ALL the racks, and there were definitely dresses in the larger range. I would shoot them an email and see if they can give you an idea of how many dresses they will have in your size range for your particular city.  Just remember that all the dresses have been tailored…so its not just dress-size that you might have to worry about but also length of the dress (if you are tall or petite)

My cousin-in-law found her dress there, and she fits in the full-figured category. She LOVED the dress she found there and got it at a great price!  So it is definitely worth a shot at emailing them and seeing if they can give you more direction as to what they have in stock on the trucks going to your area. 

Good luck!  If you do go, its a great event, and they have more than just dresses there, also can be a great place to find a veil, tiara, etc.

I went to one prior to my wedding and have to say that they had SOME dresses but was very disappointed in the selection for size 20+. We were there on the first day and one of the first 10 in the door. If you go don’t get your hopes up before hand and be prepared for a catfight. lol They only allow you to hold 3 dresses at a time and you must be trying them on. However, gals will have their friends/family hang onto potentials so they never go back to the rack. If you see something you like my siggestion is to have whoever is accompanying you stalk it! Seriously, follow it thru the show until walks out the door! Lots of gals had second thoughts at the register. 

Also, I would suggest wearing a tube style dress so you aren’t exposing yourself and can get things off and on easily. Also, slip on shoes. 


Good luck!!!
