I am really excited to share MY DRESS! After searching high and low in my hometown, my mother and I made a little road trip over to Jacksonville, FL (about 2 hours away) to check out the Alfred Angelo store there. I had heard amazing things about their customer service AND their sensitivity to the needs of plus-sized brides. Needless to say, they didn’t disappoint!
(A quick shoutout for my consultant, Ashley, who totally rocks!)
Now… for the picture… (unfortunately, no photos of ME in the dress, just in case)
In the image, she’s in white on white, but we purchased in ivory, with the lace having a metallic embroidery. She’s absolutely stunning in person… the stock photo does her no justice!
Any other plus-sized brides have a rough time finding The Dress? Did you end up pleasently surprised as well?

Very pretty dress! I really like all of the detailing.
I am a size 12/14 and dress shopping was not a whole lot of fun for me. My dress was recently delivered to the bridal salon and I tried it on last saturday. It was amazing, the dress zipped up and everyone thought the dress looked great! My one piece of advice is if you get the dress in early insist on trying it on. I finally got to feel like the bride!
I posted pictures of me in my actual dress in a post a few days ago if you want to check that out.

I tried on that dress! It was definitely my favorite at Alfred Angelo. Then I got tempted by others and ended up with one of them, but this dress is still very pretty. Congrats and let us know if you post a pic of you wearing it.

Thanks, ladies, for all the sweet comments! It’s a 2 hour trip over to try her on, but I’m going with a Bridesmaid or Best Man to look at dresses for HER next week. I MAY have to insist on trying the sample on again while I’m there!
