I went to David’s Bridal over the weekend with my mom and sisters. I tried on a few dre ssesand fell in love with a fit and flare, lace one. I felt so lucky that day. The dress was on sale for $99 and I tried on the only left in my size. Now, I’m feeling worried. I’m a plus size girl and very self conscious about my body, especially my arms and shoulders. I never wear tank tops or sleeveless anything without something to go over it. I’m just not sure what I should do to cover up in my wedding dress. I love the look of both cardigans and colored satin boleros, but I don’t know if they would look good with my dress. I’m thinking that a white lace bolero would be the best option, but I just love the idea of wearing something yellow (wedding colors are grey and yellow). So if anyone could offer some advice on what would look best, I would be so grateful. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pic of me in the dress, just the model pic.

I think a pale yellow or gray would look lovely!! Or you can add cap sleeves:)

I think a yellow cardigan is cut over a shapely dress.

I think you should see this as a fun challenge…there are so many options depending on the time of year your wedidng is to take place. Cardigans, boleros, shrugs, and you even have the option of adding capped sleeves. You got your dress at a bargian and she’s gorgous. Use all that money you saved to make it uniquely YOU.

I love the idea of a cardigan, but then again, I am a cardigan type of girl! I think you should add a yellow caridgan to your dress!

If you can afford it, I’d get a fancier white shrug for the ceremony, and a yellow cardigan for the reception. The yellow cardigan would definitely be re-wearable, if you need to justify it coming out of your household budget, instead of your wedding budget.

I like moara’s idea. You could be a two-look bride, with only one dress. I did something similar. I had removable lace cap sleeves added to my dress that I wore to the ceremony and took off for the reception. And I think the yellow cardigan would give you a more “party” look.
Have you considered adding a grey sash to your dress? I think that sashes help define the waist for us curvier brides and draw attention away from less flattering areas (for me, that’s my arms!) I wore a blue one and it made me look (and feel) thinner.

@Mrs.tobe: I LOVE that!
I’m not a huge fan of cardigans with wedding dresses. I think it’s a bit too casual. I love a fancy bolero though!
