- Wedding: October 2009
When I went dress shopping this spring I was appalled at the lack of dress options for someone my size (street size 16). So it got me thinking… what if I opened a plus size bridal salon? I’m in the final stages of writing my business plan but would LOVE your input.
1. If there was a “plus size” (street size 12 and up, so wedding dress sizes 14 – 32) salon in your area, would you go to it? If it was a distance, how far would you travel (across town, a 5 hr drive or short plane ride, or doesn’t matter, I’d cross the US)?
2. Would you want it advertised as plus size? I don’t wear plus size, so I’m not sure if that would be a turnoff to others, or just me.
3. What pricepoint would you buy in? Should I be looking at dresses under $1000? Or would you pay more if you couldn’t find it anywhere else and were blown away by the outstanding customer service? I like mid-range couture, but I don’t know if, again, I’m the only one that likes a dress that’s a bit “different”.
4. Anything else I should consider?
Thanks so much–I really appreciate the input!!
