Plus Size Bridal Feature!

If you have it, they will come. (anyone catch that Field of Dreams reference?? I crack myself up.) I’m talking about plus size wedding dresses!

Dennis Quaid probably doesn’t know a thing about bridal fashion, but he does seem to understand supply and demand! It sometimes seems to me that the wedding industry thinks that plus size brides almost exclusively want to wear boring dresses. As a bridal store manager, I can tell you that’s definitely not the case. All brides, curvy girls included, want to step into their wedding dresses on the big day and feel stylish, sexy, and totally amazing! But those gorgeous, contemporary, detailed gowns are often super hard to find. So, Bridal Gallery has been making a conscious effort every season to select trendy new wedding dresses each season in plus size samples!

Sadly, many designers choose models with basically the same very thin body type. But, don’t let that lack of diversity fool you—these are some of our favorite new plus size wedding dresses, available to try on right here at Bridal Gallery in sizes 18 or larger!
