Where to Find Cheap Plus Size Wedding Dresses
No matter where you are in your quest for cheap plus size wedding dresses, start here first:
Dress Dictionary: Flatter YOUR Figure. Finding out which styles, silhouettes and cuts that will look best with your body shape and figure is half the battle!
Unlike recent years past, it is no longer a terrifying challenge for the plus size bride to find The One. From Bridal Shops to Online Boutiques, the possibilities and options are practically endless.
More bridal shops and boutiques today are carrying a wider range of sizes. Want to be as time effective and efficient as possible? Call a few in your neighborhood and targeted shopping area and ask them their size range before you make a trip over there. And don’t settle for an eager salesperson holding up a size 4 in front of you… ask them if they have sample gowns in YOUR SIZE to try on. Don’t forget to check their sales rack while you are there!
A fantastic resource for cheap plus size wedding dresses is David’s Bridal.They have sizes up to 26W and you will be amazed at how gorgeous some of their gowns are. (Honestly I never thought I’d say that about David’s Bridal…) And a LOT of them are included in their famous $99 wedding gown sale. You probably paid more than that for your prom dress!!
Sane and Sweet Tip: Consider if you’d like to wear a corset to help minimize. However beware of some “bridal corsets” versus regular corsets. There is ultimately no difference except for the price tag. Inchant has a large, affordable selection as well as cheap ($5.95) flat rate shipping. JustBare is another great resource, especially if you are looking for sexy wedding night lingerie in addition to that functional wedding dress corset!!
Dying for a Designer Wedding Dress There are several designer labels that now create plus size wedding gowns for the curvier bride. To name a few, Mori Lee Bridal, Robert Bullock, DaVinci Bridal, Alfred Angelo, Bill Levkoff (one of my faves), Birnbaum and Bullock, Casablanca Bridal, Divina Sposa (another one of my faves), Ginza, Private label by G, Remy Couture, among several others. These designers have collections in bridal salons as well as online. For a complete list check out DressFinder.

Don’t care if your dress isn’t technically a wedding dress?? Check out CocoMyles.
