it Weddings are still relatively minor affairs compared to living in BC (that’s before the coronavirus). Many couples also want to downsize their dos, preferring to use the savings on epic honeymoons or a down payment on their first home.
This means that certain expenses need cutting back – like the wedding dress. But you can still find a chic dress that won’t cost the world.
The high street has hone in on bridal fashion with many designs mimicking bespoke creations at a fraction of the cost. While off the shelf it probably doesn’t offer the glove-like fit of something made specifically for your measurements, a talented tailor should be able to nibble and tuck it away perfectly afterwards.
Just like the brides who wear them, wedding dresses come in all shapes and sizes. We’ve rounded up the best plus size options for curvy brides – just think of us as your own virtual bridal boutique.
From wide, princess-style skirts to sleek bardot dresses, find our most popular plus size wedding dresses below.
