Gowns: Bridal  Bridesmaid |  Bridal Lingerie |  Shoes

Congratulations on your engagement. Most newly engaged brides-to-be will want to begin planning their wedding 9-12 months in advance, especially if you are planning an elaborate ceremony.

Choosing The Gown

Choosing a gown is often one of the most pleasant parts of the wedding planning experience. If you are plus size you may not have quite as many options available to you locally, depending on where you are located. You will find plenty of options available to you here online.

Remember, most wedding dresses must be altered to fit regardless of where they are purchased. You can purchase online and have your dress altered as anyone else would at a local shop. Measure carefully and if in doubt order the larger size so it can be adjusted.

If you are lucky enough to find a local bridal shop with gowns in your size you can still save yourself considerable money by shopping online. Visit your local bridal shop to try the dress on, make a note of the manufacturer, style and size, then find the same thing online and save hundreds of dollars.

Bridal headpieces can be purchased online wherever your gown is purchased. Since size is no factor for this item you may prefer to shop locally since it needs to be carefully matched to your gown.

Bridesmaid Gowns

Many bridesmaid gowns can be found at the same bridal shops which sell bridal gowns. In addition you may want to check out the following resources available in our Formal Wear section.

Bridal Lingerie

Don't forget your bridal lingerie. What you wear under your clothes is as important as the gown itself. Bridal lingerie can help to shape and define your gown. And . . . speaking from a bit of experience here . . . just because the bridal gown is several layers of material thick don't think you can get by without a slip.

My body temperature tends to runs a bit hot, it was an August wedding and I thought I could safely avoid one layer of clothing by eliminating the slip. I was wrong. Lucky for me one of my bridesmaids noticed before I got out before the entire congregation in the church. She was able to see through my dress! Gasp! One of my bridal attendants had an extra long slip which worked in a pinch and the ceremony went on. Again . . . don't forget about your bridal lingerie.

Bridal lingerie can be purchased from the shop which sells your wedding gown. You may also want to check out some of the merchants listed in our Lingerie section.

Bridal Shoes

The most important thing to remember when purchasing shoes for your wedding is to choose something comfortable. You will be on your feet all day. Do you really want to sit out the dance at your wedding because your feet are exhausted?

Purchase your shoes early and wear them around the house to break them in so they will feel more comfortable on your feet. (I wore large house slippers over mine to make sure they stayed sparkling white for the big day.)

ShoeBuy ShoeBuy
