Plus-sized brides do really have a hard time fitting into their ideal perfect wedding dress; especially as most sizes of their gowns don’t come in custom made. It’s only on rare occasions that they get to see dresses their size and, its like one in a thousand. These brides do really go through a lot in regards to their wedding dress and, in most cases, they’d rather opt for a designer to make their ideal dress for them; rather than settle for what’s in store that doesn’t even fit their size. Prior to their wedding day, the plus-sized bride puts in more efforts to get her ideal dress for her big day because, its a special day for her and, she must look good; irrespective of her size.
Most bridal stores don’t readily have plus-sized bridal gowns in store and, this is owing to the fact that such brides don’t request for their orders ahead of time. But, for most brides, they go ahead and make their purchase regardless and do all they can to fit into their dress.
As a plus-sized bride, ensure that you check out a bridal store for your ideal wedding dress at least, 3 months to your wedding. This is to prevent you finally settling for a dress you obviously don’t like but, you don’t have a choice than to settle for it. When you find your ideal gown and you feel some adjustments need to be made, go right ahead and do what you must but, ensure that its not too tight or fitted so you don’t choke. Your size is a blessing so, you gotta wear it with all pride and damn whoever thinks otherwise.
If the gown you chose needs one or two alterations here and there so it can suit your taste, ensure that you hand it to a designer that knows his/her worth so they don’t end up ruining your dress for you. If you’ll need to add some frills and embellishments to your bridal gown design, it won’t be such a bad idea to give it a try. Don’t let anyone deceive you that there’s no such thing as a perfect wedding dress for you; you’re just like every other bride out there.
Being a plus-sized bride in this generation comes with its own perks but, the last thing that should happen is you letting anyone bully you into thinking you can’t look amazing on your big day. If you can afford to, get you a competent fashion designer that can create your ideal wedding dress for you for your big day. Make sure he/she puts all the designs you’ll love to have on your dress. Get a great hairstylist that can create a hairstyle that’ll suit your facial structure and size; something that’ll make heads turn. Your make-up shouldn’t be left out of the equation too. In all, your wedding dress, just as seen on the bride in this picture should look amazing.
Wear your size like a crown.
Wear your size like its all you got.
No one should body-shame you for the way you look.
You are uniquely and specially made – don’t forget this.
