I created this blog because one of the MOST disappointing things I experienced as I was planning my wedding was the lack of photos I could find of Plus Size Brides.
I want to change that! Let’s make this a place where we can celebrate being a size 14, 16, 18, 20……24….you get the idea.
How do you figure out what is going to look good when the dresses you can try on are mostly size 10 and made for people that don’t have hips? What are some poses that I could have had my photographer take that would have been more flattering? How big does my bouquet need to be so it looks proportional? Yeah, I know…that last one was probably just me being weird.
You can participate by emailing 3 or 4 pictures (manageable sizes please!) that showcase your wedding to firstname.lastname@example.org . You MUST give credit to the photographer, even if it is Great Aunt Sue. Tell me a little something about yourself, your wedding, some of the ups and downs you experienced dress shopping. You can name names at the good shops but let’s not bash the less than gracious folks out there. I figure if there are enough places that we can share with everyone that has helpful staff the readers will get the hint and go there.
I would like to hear from all of you…the ones thinking about getting married sometime in the future, currently planning a wedding and the ones that have been married 20+ years.
