I had heels on but I literally kicked them off half way through the ceremony….much to everyone’s amusement.  I put the boots on for the rest of the evening and they were perfect.  Not to mention VERY COMFY! 

A friend and musician that my husband plays with married us so we had a very nontraditional wedding.  Our vows were Abracadabra and Fried Green Tomatoes!

I too was happy to find this thread:) There are some very beautifull, figure flattering dresses out there:) Oh and balletflats I love your dress to, and it was very nice of your photographer to help with the caterpillars:)

Bqsualum that stinks about that bridal shop but hey you know you are beautifull:) It is still hard I know. With all my health issues and such me and my fiance cannot afford a dress, but some nice people have offered to give me one of theirs or let me borrow one, but unfortunetly they have all been a lot thinner than me:) But hey it isn’t the dress that makes the day special right:) And I know my fiance loves me for me and not what I look like:)

I agree, I love seeing these dresses and different styles on girls closer to my size.  Even the “plus sized” models they use for the larger sizes aren’t plus sized.  So it is wonderfull to see realy women in their dresses, keep them coming:)

Thanks!  I love my hometown of Pendleton, Oregon AND the Round-Up…  My fiance moved here with me a few years ago. 

Broke his ankle 3 weeks ago bull riding… right before the wedding- go figure!

Oh– and an update to my dress.  Due to my crazy work schedule, I could not schedule an appointment to start my fitting.  My Maid/Matron of Honor and I decided to go look at it at least even if I couldn’t schedule my fitting right away.  They ended up having a cancellation and fitted me on the spot.

It fit almost perfectly!  Yay-

It just needs to be taken in the bust a little- no hem, nothing else.  What a nice way to feel comfortable as a plus size girl and to have your dress fit the first time and make you feel beautiful. 🙂

I can’t wait to wear my dress!  Suggestions on shoes though for a beach wedding?

palm tree… find a cute pair of sandals… not flip flops, sandals. even the “gladiator” sort of style would be cute. you can find ones at aldo that have sparkle to them. definately helps keep the love on the dress, but you could find a funky coloured shoe or sandal.

Thanks anvil chick.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is navy, so I might try a navy sandal.  I’d love to be able to wear the shoes again!

GORGEOUS dress, palmtree.  it screams beach wedding.  i agree with PP re the sandals –flip flops are a disaster on the beach.  i hope your wedding is everything you want it to be!!
