I think any of those would work well for the beach. Very pretty. I will say that, as a fellow pear shaped woman, the flowy empire waist dresses looked horrible on me, like I was wearing a tent. A natural waist gown was much more flattering. Just a thought. πŸ™‚

This website also has a nice selection of simple dresses, and a good reputation: http://www.igigi.com/plus-size-dresses/wedding-dresses?linkid=topmenu

Those are all beautiful.  You really did well in finding “flowy” beachy bride looks πŸ™‚

My personal favourite is the “Unspoken Love” by Sydney’s Closet.  But trying some on is your best bet.  When I started looking at wedding dresses, I made this list of my “favourites”, try a lot of them on….but none that I clicked with.  It just looked very different on me (skin tone, hair color, bone structre, body type, etc).  I ended up getting a totally different dress than I originally thought would look good on me πŸ™‚ 

So yeah, trying some on will give you a better idea.  All those dresses are pretty, you have to go with the one you feel is for you.

Hi, welcome! I actually like the whole look they put together on sydneyscloset.com, very pretty! I also like the David’s Bridal dresses. I would stay away from Dressilyme, I have two dresses from them, both are not going to work out at all. Also, keep your eye out for pre-owned dresses, you never know what might come up!

Hey there, and grats on your upcoming wedding! Maybe to late, but I love this gown, very simple, but classic at the same time. Can be ordered in a flower shoulder strap or beaded strap, I personally like the flower strap.

 

 

It’s Maggie Sottero Ad3396
