People often remark that every little girl dreams of her wedding day, especially her dress. I can’t say that I ever remember dressing up as a bride. Don’t get me wrong . . . I loved (still love) playing dress up, I just can’t remember dressing up as a bride or acting out a wedding. I loved to draw wedding dresses (or any big, puffy dress for that matter!), dress up my dolls in wedding dresses, think of colour combinations, and bridesmaid dress ideas. I hadn’t ever really thought about having all that attention on ME, or even what kind of options I would have.
I’ve done a lot of thinking about this over the past year, since I got engaged, and realized that I LOVE weddings, I just wasn’t so sure how I felt about walking down the aisle with all eyes on me. I know the shapes and fits that I like, and that work for my body. After trying on many dresses, I realized that I knew what I did NOT like . . . crossing my fingers that I would stumble upon MY dress. With
somea lot of faith, trust, and pixie dust I DID find my dream dress and am beyond excited to show it off.
I had always knew, in the back of my mind, that I did have a back of plan – so to speak. Online shopping. I wanted to experience wedding dress shopping in person, but knew that there were some stunning dress options that were available online. Kiyonna and IGIGI have a specific “Wedding” category on their websites, and feature some gorgeous dresses! ASOS Curves has some fashion forward dress options, while not all are available in a white or ivory, there are a few options. Lastly, Etsy offers some stunning one-of-a-kind custom wedding dresses and many vendors offer to make pieces for your specific measurements.
IGIGI available in sizes 12 – 30/32.

- ASOS Curve available in UK sizes 20 – 26 (US sizes 16 – 22).
- Etsy search for “Plus Size Wedding Dress,” for some amazing custom-made options.
Love your curves,
