A wedding is a milestone and a celebration of love, amongst other things. But, don’t let all the dressing up frenzy get to you and make you forget what’s really important. We need to celebrate our bodies – plus, petite, tall or short, and everything that comes with it, without chasing the self-validation we assume comes with size zero frames. If that’s what you genuinely want, by all means, go ahead, but if that’s not practical, let’s work with what we have. Thanks to designers, the bridal dressing lines cater to every specification or preference we might have, and plus-size bridal dresses take up a big part. Do you have a dress in mind and are not sure how to go about it? Let your gut and instincts take over – you probably will say ‘Yes’ to the dress. But if you want to look at some options, we have rounded off some that will make you want to go shopping right now! Let’s take a look – I’m excited! Are you?
Best Wedding Dresses For Plus Size Brides
1. Lace Dress With Broad V-Neck
Do you have a pear-shaped body? And, do you have a classic lace dress in mind? You are well on your way to finding your dream dress. The broad V-neck that spreads out into transparent lace sleeves give you coverage, and the perfect fit of the bodice that opens up just the right amount is exquisite.
2. Sleeveless Bridal Gown In Lace And Tulle
Lace and tulle are synonymous with wedding gowns, and this dress gives you all of that and more. We just cannot imagine this outfit without the heavily embroidered bodice. The dress has a lace hemline bumping, making it perfect for a beach or church wedding. If you have a cocktail party right after, you don’t even have to bother about a change, because it is both celebratory and special.
3. Full Sleeves Dress In Chantilly Lace And Satin
The bridal lines are continually raising bars, and so are we. Here’s a Chantilly lace dress with intricate embroidery, scallop neckline, full sleeves, and satin overlay. It is simply flattering, fashionable, and gorgeous.
4. Lace And Silk Gown With Flap Sleeves
Flap sleeves with transparent lace, embroidered bodice, broad V-neckline, and a satin waistband that dramatically blows out into an off-white skirt are nothing like you have ever seen before. It is equal parts flowing and form-fitting. Fits perfectly for a beach or a contemporary-themed wedding.
5. Long Sleeves Wedding Dress With Lace Overlay
What is better than a full-blown lace wedding dress? I cannot think of anything, plus this dress is blowing my mind away! The fully embroidered lace overlay that leaves a perfect trail behind, the sweetheart illusion neckline, and the long sleeves are to die for.
6. Fit And Flare Mermaid Style Dress
A dress that touches a sweet spot between vintage and aesthetic modern. The mermaid style figure-hugging dress sticks to the body at all the right places and forms a little twirl as you walk down the aisle. Not to forget the heavily embellished body, the narrow V neckline, and the transparent sleeves that take this dress to a whole new level. A veil would be an amazing addition.
7. Lace Dress For The Bohemian Bride
This Bohemian beauty is for brides who have a thing for all things boho. The sleeveless lace dress would be a perfect fit for a ranch or countryside wedding.
8. Lace Gown With Cap Sleeves
A dress that starts off with a classic lace bodice but almost instantly becomes a stunner. The tulle layers and sheer cap sleeves are ingenious ways to play with pattern and bring out the best in you.
9. Strapless Lace Gown With Sweetheart Neckline
Who says strapless is not for the plus sized ladies? Do not listen to anyone, not even when it comes from you. The sweetheart neckline goes with the form-fitting bodice and skirt, leaving a tiny bit of lace at the back. It all falls into place just perfectly.
10. Strapless High Low Gown With Silver Embellishments
With every dress in the catalog, I hope you see that it only gets more beautiful, and being plus sized should not bother us even a bit. The strapless dress with heavy silver embellishments and a high-low hemline looks absolutely amazing.
11. Ball Gown Style Wedding Dress In Lace
How did we not think of this earlier? Isn’t style about breaking personal mind blocks and stereotypes? Thanks to dresses like these and brides that embrace the weather, their bodies, and fashion without missing a beat. The ball-gown style wedding dress with the faux fur shrug is not something we see every day. Here’s ticking another box that you might think is a problem – winter wedding!
12. Corset Style Applique Work Lace Dress
Intricate embroidery for the corset style bodice, sweetheart neckline with a perfect dip, and the lace appliqué work over the tulle for the skirt are structural perfection. Want to show off that décolletage and style choices? You know where I’m headed with this, don’t you?
13. Lace Fit And Flare Dress With Ruffles
When you dress up, choose to go with ruffles and go all out, or do nothing at all. This dress reiterates the same thing. The frills that take over the perfectly done form-fitting bodice makes it look like this dress is right out of the runway.
14. Muted Pink Ball Gown Style Dress
Our idea of a traditional wedding dress revolves around playing with whites, but moving away slightly from this without being loud can open up a world in itself where fashion is concerned. This tulle dress in soft hues of pink and with a perfectly tailored ball gown structure is not just feminine, but also a reminder that little details can do wonders for an outfit.
15. Princess Style Wedding Dress In Ivory
Non-white wedding dresses are catching up, and brides are leaving no stone unturned. This ivory colored dress with an embellished square neckline is unique and fitting. The timeless ball gown style that meets modern silhouette should probably be topping this chart, and yours too.
