Plus sized Bridal FUN!

As a plus sized girl, I’ve always found it difficult to get the cute clothes that fit me well! I’m a tall size 22 and that seems to be the size of the season in plus sized stores. So, whenever I shop, I have to pay full price (no sales on this size). So, to justify the price, I often find myself just wearing what I buy until it gets holes in it.

Yes, I was hopeful in the beginning to not be plus size when it came time for the wedding, but now that I’m a little under 5 months away from the big day, it’s time to face the music!

I remember reading on The Knot about all the cute bridal accessories available in stores and online. The problem?

See that in the red circle? Highest size is a 10!! 😦 Do I dare DIY? Well, when it comes to clothes, I’d rather leave it to the professionals.  So, no DIY rhinestone shirt.

Then, Mom Ballet Flat showed me a beautiful dress (possible rehearsal dress) on a plus sized designer’s site called Kiyonna, and within the site, I found the bridal shop! A PLUS SIZED bridal shop! 🙂

Let’s just say I’m gonna go a little purchase happy whenever it gets closer to the wedding! This apparel goes up to 3x  and even  some styles go up to 5X on this site.

Check out a sampling of what they have!!

Do any of you plus sized brides out there have any other bridal apparel websites to share?

    I totally know your pain – we plus sized girls want to wear the cute bridal gear too!

    Although I dont have any other websites to share, I did luck up and find a plus sized bridal salon in Atlanta (I live in Athens, GA). It was quite an experience walking in there knowing full well I’d be able to wear 90% of the gowns in the store. If I had the money, I’d open one at home because goodness knows the bridal industry needs more of them.

    Thanks for the tip, Amy! Kiyonna has some cuuuute stuff!

    The only other plus-size bridal I know about is that Lane Bryant sometimes makes bridal gowns.
