Hi everyone! I'm a plus-sized bride (size 28), and wondering aside from the usual suspects, is there anywhere else I can attempt to purchase a wedding dress? Our budget isn't exactly huge, so preferably something around or under the £300 mark. TIA! xx

About a bride in Milton Keynes is purely dedicated to plus sized brides. Depends on where you are located. I think if you contact boutiques they may be able to guide you as to whether they can stock plus sized dresses. I went and tried on a few dresses at a general boutique but held up a couple of dresses against me as the boutique had size 10 and I couldn't squeeze my boobs into that size! (I'm a high street 20/22)
Also be prepared that wedding dresses are not sized like high street so you will be a size or two bigger. X

Have you tried Wed2B? I tried loads on from there when I was first looking and had a budget to stick to (I ended up winning a competition for my dress so didn't have from there in the end) and I think the most expensive is around £495 and their sizes go up to 40 x

I bought mine from cocomelody.com -it's an American site that designs all their own dresses. I paid around £350 for custom made and delivery I loved my dress!!

I got mine custom sized on JJS House and got married in it on saturday, it fitted perfectly, cost less than £300 and was great quality for the price, only downsize is you can't try it on before you buy, but if you go try some on in a boutique first to see which style suits you, it helps :)

I ordered mine customised from Vividress online from China. £150 with P&P all thrown in. Received it within 3 days and a perfect fit and made exact to the measurements I gave them. Looked great on the day.

I got my dress from an independent plus sized bridal shop called about a bride.. It's located in Bletchley which is just outside of Milton Keynes well worth a visit they make you feel so comfortable and at ease! Trying on dresses was definately an amazing experience for me there before was something I was dreading! They have a sale too atm! My dress was 795 but they offer payment plans to spread the cost! Good luck! X

Curves and Couture deal only with plus size and are based in Essex. I'm going to go there as they construct their dresses differently to flatter the plus size lady. Good Luck.
