I’m getting married in Aug. 09! I just got may wedding dress and I’m second guessing. I’m a size 18 and it was very difficult to find samples that fit me. It was a dreadful experience the first time. Luckily, on my second trip to the bridal shop I lucked out with a great lady who knew more than the throw all the "fat bride" dresses at me (by that I mean very traditional and shapeless).
Story short, my dress is definitely not the most original but my mom and Fiance LOVE it. It does put the biggest grin on my face but I’m not sure if it’s because the search is over or I like the dress.
I have searched high and low for brides wearing this dress and I can’t find any! It makes me feel like I ordered something out of style. Can you please answer the following:
1. Is my dress out of style?
2. Have you seen other brides wear it?
My dress is Bonny 1623. Sorry for the long post.

Wish I could see a pic of you in the dress! I think it’s beautiful Pickup dresses are very in this year, it’s not at all out of style. And I love the sweetheart neckline! Most plus size dresses I’ve seen have a straight neckline and a straight A-line. This one is gorgeous!

Ok, I can’t seem to figure out the attachment part but the first link has a small clear picture of the dress.

I think it’s lovely. The pickups are not out of style and the sweetheart neckline is a classic!

I’m also a "big girl" and while I’m doing everything I can to loose weight, I know I won’t have the figure I really would love to have by June or whenver we set the final date.
I am so happy you found someone who didn’t try to put you in the "fat girls" dress!!
I think you will be beautiful and I’m looking forward to the pictures!!

Actually, I was very happy with the sales lady. At first she did try the "usual suspects" but I told her I wanted something different. She went and collected the largest sizes in all sorts of shapes and fabrics instead of just telling me the things she thought wouldn’t look good on me.
I hated that "no, you can’t wear that" or "no, the fabric won’t give you a nice shape" and the one that almost made me hit the first lady "honey, that won’t hold you in"!!! She didn’t even let me try!!!
The second lady let me try what I wanted or a design close to what I wanted so that I would see it with my own eyes and move on if it wasn’t flattering.
@MightySaphire: We didn’t think I was gonna find a dress so we didn’t take pictures and now I have to wait until it arrives. 3 months before the wedding!!! (store policy). That’s pretty much the reason I don’t feel confident about my choice.

I have not seen any other brides wearing my dress either, but I relish being unique. Just think how special it will be to have a dress that is all your own! In my opinion, sometimes when you see a million girls all wearing the same thing that means it has already become a trend, and that means it will soon be out of fashion. I think your dress is lovely and timeless!

That’s a beautiful dress. If you’re looking for pictures of real brides in the dress, try looking for pictures of the Maggie Sottero Capri. It’s a very similar style and there should be lots of pictures floating around.

I think the dress is gorgeous and the silhouette will look fabulous. The sweetheart neckline is classic and elegant. If you have concerns about the dress "holding you in", invest in some quality lingerie that you can use forever to give you additional structure. That’s what I plan on doing…
