Hello Beautiful Bride!

Planning a wedding is such an exciting and joyous time! But it can also be stressful and highly overwhelming, especially on you! One of the most anticipated yet dreaded steps of planning a wedding is 𑁋 yep, you guessed it 𑁋 wedding dress shopping. It can be even more challenging for curvier, more voluptuous women to find their perfect gown. Most turn to online boutiques that offer more options for plus size women. Here’s what you need to know to find your perfect dress online:

Create a Vision Board

Create a pin board on Pinterest where you can let your imagination run wild! Fill it up with the styles, colors, and textures of how you envision looking on your wedding day. If you find something that resonates with your dream vision, add it to your board. This is such a fun activity for you and will certainly help your online stylist down the road!

Define Your Budget & Timeline

There are two things you need to know before starting your online hunt for a plus size wedding dress 𑁋 budget and timeline. Define how much of the total budget will be spent on your dress. We recommend this be done about 12 months before the big day. The budget for your dress should include the cost of the dress, taxes, alterations, and shipping within this budget. You may also want to add in your accessories, like your shoes, veil, and jewelry.

Find Your Favorite Sites

You’ll likely find a few sites during your search that appeal to you more than others. On these sites in particular, get to know the brand. Dig around the website, read reviews, and really become familiar with what they can offer you vs. the type of experience you’d like to have during such an important time in your life.

Make Connections

Once you find the site, or sites, you really like 𑁋 reach out to the contact on the website and get to know who will be guiding you through your wedding gown selection and purchasing process. Ask them to go over their process with you, get your questions answered, and further validate your choice to work with the site to help you feel beautiful on your big day.

Rely on Your Online Stylist

This is where it gets fun, beautiful! You’ll be paired with an online stylist. Rely on your stylist to guide you through their inventory, fit expectations, and color guides. Remember that the way a dress looks online is not necessarily the way it looks in real life.
