Plus Size Bridal Gowns - What's Right For Your Big Day?

By Chirsty Diaz

Every woman wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. With more choices in plus size bridal gowns than ever before, the variety of different styles can be overwhelming. Your answers to the following wedding planning questions will help you narrow down your selection from the ever growing styles of plus size bridal gowns.

What Type of Wedding?

You may be tempted to rush out to buy the gown as soon as you receive the proposal from your beloved. But, you are better off choosing your wedding and reception venues before making a beeline to a retailer that carries plus size bridal gowns.

Once you have selected the location, you will have a better understanding of what styles will be suitable. You may want a formal gown for a church or temple ceremony. If you are exchanging vows on the beach or in a backyard, you might look for something more simple and casual. Keep in mind that trains and veils can quickly become dirty dragging on lawns or outdoor walkways.

What Is Your Bridal Gown Personality?

Go ahead and buy a couple of those fun bridal magazines. What gowns do you find the most beautiful? You'll probably gravitate to one style or another. Remember that this is your big day. You can listen to what others have to say, but you should stick to a style that you love. Ultra-feminine brides may long for a lacey, full-skirted creation. A sporty, active woman might prefer an unadorned, structured dress, and a sophisticated, beaded sheath can be sublime on a cosmopolitan urbanite.

What Is Your Budget?

Let's face it - bridal ensembles can be astronomically expensive. But, with some good research, you can find a dream gown that will fit your budget. If you have found the perfect designer gown, but it is out of your price range, don't be afraid to ask the retailer for lesser price similar styles. Sometimes, the only difference between the designer gown and the less expensive alternative is the type of lace, beading, or fabric. Remember to also allow some extra funds for a headpiece or veil, shoes, and undergarments.

What Makes You Feel Beautiful?

As you cross the threshold into your new life as a married woman, you will want to look your most beautiful. Feel free to wear what makes you feel special and rest assured that your feelings of joy, love and happiness that day will make you a beautiful bride.
