Choosing Plus Size Wedding Dresses - a guide for
the plus size woman
Finding those perfect special occasion plus
size wedding dresses can be a challenge.
Thankfully, it doesn't have to be, and it certainly doesn't mean that buying perfect dresses for everyone
involved in a wedding will end up in a hodgepodge of styles that ruins the moment.
A Fully Figured Wedding !
The key to finding perfect special occasion dresses that work for all is to keep the uniform with everything
else that is going one at the event.
If you are a bride shopping for dresses, and your bridesmaids are also shopping
for perfect special occasion plus size dresses, make sure you are all on the same page with what to buy.
Most modern wedding planners will help issue a guidebook on buying
special occasion plus size dresses to all that are involved in the wedding day.
Your guidebook will make sure that everyone is buying dresses in the same color,
fit, style, length, and width. A bride's worst nightmare is being outshone by her bridesmaids.
To avoid hostility among those involved in the event, be sure to explain the plan
for buying special occasion plus size dresses before you allow them to accept your invitation for being
involved in the wedding.
There is nothing worse then a brides maid that has a problem with the selected
special occasion plus size dresses. By getting consent right off the bat you will avoid any issues that could
occur because of the plus size wedding dresses chosen for the bride, and bridesmaids.
Once they agree to wear the dress that you have outlined for them to wear, then have them try it on for fit
before buying all the dresses. If one person does not fit at all into their outfit or dress it may make sense to
rework the plan, or have that person purchase a similar color in a different cut.
Finally when buying special occasion dresses be sure to check for alteration service before
making your purchase.
The best way to make sure everyone fits in their dresses is that an on-site alteration seamstress will tend to
each dress that is brought to them - do make that all trying on is done with the bra that you intend to wear on the
day, as different styles can make all the difference to fit .
Everyone has a unique size and shape, and thus will require a special fit for each dress they have to wear. Many
will need small minor alterations to their special dress; others will need full on sewing work to make sure their
gown is ready to wear.
