Weddings can end up immensely expensive, with wedding dresses often being a huge part of the budget. These days there a lot of options, from having something custom made (which is what I am doing), to something high street! If you are a plus size bride wanting something on the more budget side of things, here are some fab pieces I've found whilst looking for ideas for my dress.
OK, so this might not be the cheapest of options, but as ASOS are launching a whole bridal wear range I had to share this dress. The lace overlay is beautiful, and I love the cheeky thigh split! Perfect for a more relaxed bride who wants some boho chic.
The high street can offer some seriously lovely dresses for brides these days! The high neck and lace are fab, very seventies.
For Her and For Him offer nearly all their dresses in totally custom sizes, custom colours and lengths, which is perfect for anyone who struggles with off the rack pieces. They also offer maternity versions too!
This dress is just freaking amazing. Felicity Hayward looks incredible in it! Who says you can't have a black wedding dress? I adore this!
This is just ridiculously pretty. Sequins and tulle are some of my favourite things, and the slightly grey tone is divine.
If you want a classic vintage style, a Lindy Bop dress is the ideal way to do it on a budget! They have a cute range of mid-length pieces, with even a Marilyn Monroe inspired dress from that iconic air vent photo.
Chi Chi Clothing Curve Tansy Dress £64.99
While Chi Chi only go up to a size 24, they do have some really pretty pieces. The neckline on this is a great touch and the lilac tones would look so good on all skin tones.
If like me you love glam rock, then a November Rain inspired shorter at the front tutu, with a cute top could be a great alternative! TuTu Factory offer up to a size 32 as standard, and will custom make any size you could need.
For a more traditional and classic gown, this is just gorgeous. The chiffon overlay would give lush movement. And it is available in a whopping 63 different colours!
The scalloping and sequin details on this are such mermaid goodness. I can see it paired with a cute shell clutch bag and bare foot sandals on a beach or in a field. So cute!
And for my last dress, something totally different, a gorgeous rainbow summer dress.... with pockets!
Don't feel you have to wear a white or ivory dress, or pastels, it's your wedding, and you can wear whatever you want! Whether that's a jumpsuit, or all black, rock it how you want.
