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
I was also a plus size bride i went to madisons bridal boutique in wishaw and purchased my dress! It was stunning and i honestly couldnt have felt any happier in it! I have attatched a picture, feel free to pop me a message xxx
WED2BE have dresses in a huge variety of sizes and they are very reasonably priced! X

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 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 :)
