You have already put a whole lot of time and effort into the planning of your wedding and now it is time for you to find the wedding dress of your dreams. When you are a bride-to-be that has a curvy figure, then it is best to find a terrific plus size bridal gown that flatters your body and gives you an incredible look. Today more than ever there are plenty of amazing wedding dresses available for the plus size bride, you simply have to know where to look and the best style to fit your particular body type.

If you think about it, any wedding dress no matter what size you are should be just right in every aspect. The perfect dress will help to bring out your very best features while helping you to disguise some of those that you would not rather have noticed. Never be afraid to try on any number of dresses until you find just the right one. After all, this is your special day so it is imperative that you are extremely pleased with how your wedding dress makes you look and feel.

When you are a bride that is bigger in the bust area, then you may want to look for a gorgeous gown that has a larger skirt, such as the ballerina style. The flare at the bottom will help to even out your large bust and completely round out the look. Additionally, if you have a larger bust line than your waist, you are considered to have what is called an apple shaped figure. This can be addressed with a neckline that is in the shape of a v. The plunge here will give you just enough of a distraction!

After you choose your dress, make sure that you have everything else that is needed for your big day. Many plus size brides will have an issue with their shoes being too tight. If you cannot find a wide size to fit your feet comfortably, then think about having the shoes stretch by a local shoe store or even your bridal shop where you purchased your wedding dress. This extra comfort will go a long way during your big day. Do not forget an extra pair of white flip flops or satin slippers that match your gown just in case your shoes do give you a hard time!

Flip flops are a must and make sure you get some for the bridal party too. You can all flip flop on the dance floor! It’ll be dark.

Getting the right dress for your shape is important. I like having backup shoes for the dance floor as well. Keeps your feet from revolting against you.

I am definitely planning on having backup comfy shoes for the big day! Mind you, I opted for a very comfy low heel, so hopefully I won’t be too sore.
