Rabbit,

I’m a plus-size bride, and feel gorgeous in my dress– but part of that feeling comes from being confident on the inside.  The most beautiful girl in the world can put on a stunning dress, and still hate the way she looks in the mirror.  It’s really sad the way we talk down to ourselves in our heads– would you talk to a girlfriend that way?  We have to flip the script in our own minds, and exorcise these demons.

I’d recommend that you read this post by Mrs. Kiwi: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/01/07/my-regret/

Mrs. PeepToe also talked about the same fears, surrounding her search for the dress: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/01/07/bridal-shopping-angst/

So my waist is six inches larger than another girl– who cares?  That doesn’t make me any less of a person, or less worthy of a fantastic dress!  I’m not going to walk around depressed, and angry with myself, simply because my thighs have a little extra bit of curve.  Trust me, the salesgirls in the dress salons are just there to sell you your dress– they’re not judging you half as much as we women judge ourselves.

There is a dress out there that is going to make you feel incredible.  Don’t be afraid to go out and try to find it!
