There are a ton of wedding tasks to get done before your big day, and knowing how to approach them will help you get to the finish line faster. When gearing up to choose the perfect plus size bridal gowns, it’s important to know which bridal shops offer them, what to expect to do when you get there, who to bring, and how to choose the plus size wedding dress that shows off your gorgeous curves.
Countless bridal shops, for example David’s Bridal, offer lines that specialize in plus size gowns. Other shops may not, so make sure you know for sure that the stores you are about to visit offer plus size gowns.
Your goal when you make it to the shop is to try on as many dresses as you can. You can’t truly tell what a gown looks like until you slip it on. Step outside of your comfort zone and try on styles that you never imagined would compliment your body. Let go of your expectations, have fun, and essentially just play dress up until you land on the dress that feels like the one.
Bring a few of your bridesmaids with you to the bridal shops. The more eyes you have on your side, the quicker you’ll be able to say “nay” to the dresses that just don’t work. Have your friends take photos of you in various angles in each gown so that you can see what it would look like in your wedding photos.
Since one of your goals is most likely to accentuate and possibly hide certain curves, then choose the curves you want to highlight and ask for dresses that will do just that. There are specific wedding gown styles that are cut in a way that bring attention to certain areas of the body.
