Choose the dress which can flatter you. Finding the perfect dress is more than just choosing what’s slimming: Plus-size brides are usually steered toward an A-line dress, and that works for some but not for all. A good consultant will take into consideration the bride’s style, shape, and comfort level to find a look that fits her vision. Bottom line: Let your dress reflect your personality, and don’t submit to a curvy-girl stereotype.

Don’t delay. You may be hoping to lose weight before you start looking, but the longer you wait, the less options you’ll have. I may be your fairy godmother, but I’m not a miracle worker. Gowns take six to eight months to come in, so if you wait too long you’ll be limited to what’s in stock. Dresses can be altered to accommodate weight loss, but trying to find the One from the back-room stock is a plus-size bummer, so go as you are, because that’s how your groom likes you!

Remember that it’s your experience. Not your mom’s, not your aunt’s, and not the sales consultant’s. Don’t buy a dress just because you’ve been there for hours, you’ve tried on tons of options, or everyone around you is urging you toward something you don’t love. Buy the dress that makes you feel so beautiful and happy that the only thing that could top it is meeting the love of your life at the end of an aisle and saying “I do.”

Make a appintment in advance. Almost every single bridal shop require an appointment. This might be shock to you but once you realize that you will have a bridal shop attendant who is working closely with you to help you select styles and sizes you will see why appointments are needed.
