Size-Inclusive Bridal Dress Shopping Tips: What To Remember? 

Before we conclude the blog post, we’d like to leave you with some amazing tips that will help you to shop for your dresses better. With many options, it is only natural to feel overwhelmed and wonder which dress or brand, or designer to choose. As wedding planning can have you mapping out different things, from the wedding venue to your honeymoon, you can be here one minute and in a different place, planning your wedding’s food menu in the next minute! And this is why we know some of the most obvious things when it comes to bridal dress shopping can slip off your mind. Since we want you to look your best, we have compiled a list of some amazing tips to remember:

  1. Call Before You Visit The Store 

One of the most important things to remember when you’re looking for a size-inclusive wedding dress is to remember to call the wedding retail store! Since by this time you would have already researched the brands, websites, and stores, you’ll know exactly where to go. That said, even when you have a list of brands and websites, ensure that you visit the stores that have your size. Before visiting the store, just call them up real quick to ask if samples in your size are available. Because this will help you save a lot of time, and ensure that you visit the store when the store has dresses in your size.

  1. Be Selective Of The People You Shop With

This advice may seem out of the ordinary things to mention, but remember not everyone is a great partner to shop with. Although it may seem a very movie-esque and fun-loving idea, it can go sideways very quickly. Make sure that you’re only taking people who are really close to you. Furthermore, ensure that the friends and family members who have the best fashion advice and you trust their opinion, are with you when you step out to shop. Because when you’re shopping for your wedding dress, not only will you need great advice, but you will also need support. Only those who are close to you will be able to give you the support you need.

  1. The Tiny Bits and Bobs

One of the biggest things to keep in mind is that your wedding shopping is like shopping for any other valuable object. If you’re looking for the perfect wedding dress or the absolutely perfect bridesmaid dress, then remember to keep the following things in mind as you shop:

  • •Wedding dresses or bridesmaid dresses are available in size and style! Most of the straight-size dresses are available in plus-size dresses as well. Even if you see that the brand you’ve picked out does not have the same dress in plus size, even so, you can place an order for your size.
  • •You can check out any wedding dress boutique or store. However, always remember that if the store does not have a collection for “plus sizes” or “curve options” then even if you’re willing to pay for the expense, the boutique will not be able to create the dress you want. However, all is not lost, you can use the store to gain some inspiration! And then you can find a custom wedding dress designer to create your dream wedding dress!
  • •Although most of the classic wedding dress designers and shops offer size-inclusive bridal clothing pieces, most of them have the same, run-of-the-mill kind of dresses. If you want something elegant and simple, then these dresses can be perfect for you. However, if you’re throwing a boho wedding, or have an elopement planned, then how about researching some more to find a brand that designs work for you? Apart from this, as we said earlier, you can also have the wedding dress or the bridesmaid dresses stitched as per your requirements.

 

That said, we hope that these brands and ideas help you find the bridal dresses that are just right for you and your bridal party! When you’re shopping for your wedding dress or even bridesmaid’s dresses, remember that your wedding color scheme should not be compromised. Of course, you can create some pops of colors with your dress choices. However, you cannot do the opposite. And if you want to choose a different color and step away from your wedding theme colors, then remember to add some details, or even a bridal bouquet to add the similarity of colors to your wedding look. That said, we hope the list of brands above along with the tips help you find the wedding dress you absolutely adore and feel good in.

 

Nicole and Jon’s Opulent, Minimal, and Elegant Cincinnati Wedding

The day of the wedding was perfect. Nicole and Jon had been engaged for a while and the two had been waiting for their wedding day to take the form of something that they had been imagining for a long time. As the day of the wedding approached, the couple found themselves counting the day to the big day. They had enjoyed a long engagement and were sure that they would enjoy getting married and the days to come. And looking at their wedding, and the photos our Cincinnati wedding photographer captured, we can tell that their wedding was just as beautiful as they had expected it to be. The lovely photos of the day, as our photographer believes, do not do justice to their wedding. For their wedding day, the couple had decided to have their wedding ceremony and reception in different locationsCathedral Basilica of the Assumption, and The Madison Event Center – Covington respectively.

The day of the wedding started as it always does, with anticipation and excitement. Nicole and Jon had already decided that they will be following the traditional way of getting married, which meant Nicole and Jon will not have a first look, and the two will get ready separately. Although Jon did not want to have the first look photo session, Nicole thought it would be a good idea to have a first look session with her father. The father of the bride, when dressed, will wait for his lovely daughter to get him after the wedding. And when the moment happened, it was as perfect as Nicole had imagined it to be. The soon-to-be bride and groom decided to spend time with their closest of closest friends and family members. The bride and the groom’s party were as excited as the couple. And it was tremendously heartwarming to watch.

The wedding ceremony was slated to happen in the late afternoon and the wedding ceremony was to happen in the evening. So, the couple decided to get dressed during the afternoon and then will go to their wedding ceremony venue. The groom and his groomsmen decided to have a chat before they got dressed for the occasion. The choice of their outfits was similar to the choice of their wedding’s color scheme, black and white. Before they got dressed, the boys sat down with the groom and had a chat. They reminisced old memories over some drinks, laughing and smiling. Before the groom got dressed, he brought out the favors he’d chosen for his groomsmen as his way of saying thanks! His groomsmen were taken away and then, slowly, they smiled and laughed. Jon urged them to open their groomsmen’s gifts, and the boys obliged with warm smiles. They were not expecting gifts from the groom. It was a large white box with the most thoughtful items. Jon had picked out one of his favorite scented handmade soap bars, a pair of socks, a packet of Reese’s chocolates, and some cash (because of traditions!). And when the gift-giving was done, the boys decided to get dressed for the day and the activities. The best man helped the groom put on his tie and helped him with his suit’s suspenders. The groom had quickly put on his two-piece suit for the day. After he was dressed, the boys finished putting on their watches and shoes, thereby adding the last of the charms to their three-piece wedding outfit. Jon’s watch, however, was different from others. The back of his watch had an inscription of a Bible verse, our photographer took a photo of that too. After everyone was dressed, the boys posed for some amazing getting-ready photos. After posing for some poised photos, the groomsmen decided to bring out the inner child in themselves and posed for some funny photos. Jon was happy to see his closest friends cheer him on like that.

In another room, Nicole was getting dressed with her girls and the mother of the bride as well as the mother of the groom. The getting ready photos of the girls and the dressing room were slightly different than that of Jon and his boys’. The getting-ready room for the girls was dressed in white, shades of pink and wooden signage that said “love.” To start off their day, the girls dressed in blush pink robes alternatives, and the bride picked out the color for the girls. The getting-ready shorts and blouses were in-line with the blush pink bridesmaid dresses. Before the girls started getting dressed for the day, they decided to sit down for a chat, just like the boys. They whipped up a fun cocktail for their drinks, the girls sat down for a chat, and then posed for some lovely photos together. The girls couldn’t contain their excitement, going between bridesmaid group photo poses to singular photos with the bride, they managed to keep their talks afloat. After posing for photos, as the wedding ceremony approached, the girls decided to help Nicole fix her bridal makeup first so that she gets dressed as the bridesmaids get dressed. Nicole loved simple glam looks, so she decided to choose shimmering eye makeup for her wedding day.

As the girls were getting dressed, our photographer took some detailed photos of the room, along with the photos of the wedding dress Nicole had been proud of. The moment Nicole looked at her wedding dress, a look of pride and love would come over her face, which was absolutely wonderful to experience. Her wedding dress had a large train, a beautiful top with lace details, and an elegant plunge neckline, giving her the perfect wedding look. Once the bridesmaids were dressed, they came back to help Nicole with her wedding outfit. From helping her fix the back of her wedding dress to placing up the wedding dress train to some mesmerizing bridal photos, the maid of honor brought out the veil to go with the wedding dress. One of the bridesmaids ran off to brighten the bride’s wedding day shoes, and then her outfit was complete! All that was remaining was her bridal bouquet. Her wedding look went completely well with her wedding bouquet. One of the best parts of the bouquet was that it was not only filled with popping colors but also was absolutely different from the wedding day’s theme color, which was a classy black and white. The pretty pops of some pinks made the bouquet stand out!

When the bride was finally ready, she decided to have her first look session with her father. The father of the bride is dressed similarly to the groom, with a black tux and a black bow to go with it. Once one of the bridesmaids notified him that the bride was ready and coming out to see him, he turned his back towards the door. He turned around and closed his eyes, with his hands clasped in front of him. To him, Nicole would always be his little daughter, and he couldn’t believe that time flew by. As he waited for his daughter to nudge him, it was easy to see the anticipation in his body language. Our wedding photographer did a good job of capturing the way the father of the bride was waiting for his daughter, it is full of emotions. And when she walked out of the room, he knew. And before she softly tapped on his back, both of them stood there, in silence, just breathing the same air. The father of the bride did not open his eyes until he felt the soft tap on his back. And when he felt Nicole softly asking him to turn around, he turned around slowly. The moment was as beautiful as it is in the movies, a father softly turning around to see his baby daughter all dressed up for her wedding.

Looking at his daughter, he forgot how to breathe. And as moments passed, he pulled his daughter in for an embrace! He hugged her tight and kissed her cheek. Pulling away from her, he looked at his daughter once more and smiled. And then, he extended his arm to take her to the wedding ceremony location. Pulling his daughter close, and decided to give her a sideways hug, and lead her to the church. By the time they reached the church, the groom had already taken his place at the altar. He was waiting for his soulmate to walk through the Church doors at any moment. While he was waiting, the bride of the father took measured steps, just to savor the moments. He was bustling with happiness that his daughter is starting a new life. However, a small corner in his heart was a small thought, his daughter was all grown up now. Reaching the church doors, he squared his shoulders and smiled, Nicole smiled next to him. Her cheers made her father’s mood lighter, and much better.

As Nicole was preparing for an entrance, Jon couldn’t stop thinking about the time and kept wondering about when she would be coming in. And then, she did. His eyes lightened up, and she smiled at him. As she approached the altar, Jon stretched his hand out to help Nicole up the stairs, to the altar. The venue, the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, looked beautiful. Like the couple’s wedding day theme, the decor for their indoor wedding was simple, minimal, and elegant. The deep brown wood details of the church made the entire place look warm and cozy, befitting the occasion. As the bride and the groom faced the cross and the wedding officiant, the church fell quiet. The wedding guests hushed and watched these two lovebirds get married. And when the two read out their wedding vows to each other, it was easy to see that the couple was surrounded by people who absolutely loved them. Every person in the church had a smile on their face as the two read out their vows. And then, when they sealed their wedding with a kiss, the groomsmen cheered, the bridesmaids smiled, ear-to-ear, and the wedding guests looked, and clapped! And just like that, Jon and Nicole were married. Turning around to face their guests, the two smiled, and walked down the aisle together, arm in arm. And when they reached the exit of the venue, the two kissed again, this time to capture the moment here in wedding photos.

As the couple stepped out, they realized they had some time before the reception began. So, as the wedding guests emptied out of the room, the couple decided to pose for some family photos. The mother of the bride and the mother of the groom had put on similar dresses to synchronize their outfits. The father of the bride and the father of the groom did the same with their outfits! Using the massive interiors of the church, Jon and Nicole posed for some amazing photos! The couple used the backdrop of the altar to take some family photos, next the couple used other areas inside the church to take some stunning photos with the family. And then the parents of the groom and the bride decided that they should head to the reception venue. So, Jon and Nicole stayed back to pose for some more photos! But before that, the groomsmen and the bridesmaids lined up, next to the bride and the groom to pose for a group photo. And then, the couple decided to click some photos. They used the indoors of the church to take some photos. The first photo that Nicole wanted to take was with the altar in the background, her dress’s train fluffing up, and trailing behind her. Nichole stood, facing the altar, slightly turning around to look at the camera. Our photographer took a photo like that, next they placed her beautiful bridal bouquet on the wedding dress train to add a pop of color to the wedding photo. Our photographer then took a photo of just the bride looking at the altar, her wedding dress’s train, and the veil flowing behind her. As the time for the reception was inching closer, the couple decided to take some more photos outside. While they were making their way out, our photographer walked ahead of them to take an impressive Instagram-worthy wedding photo. As Nicole and Jon walked towards the exit, Nicole lifted her arm as a yes, and that was the pose!

When they stepped out, the large Romanesque columns acted as the backdrop for some more romantic couple photos of the two. Nicole posed for another solo photo outside, she loved the night and how it made the church look pristine. They walked out of the church and found a spot to take some more photos before they headed back to the wedding reception venue. And just as they were leaving, Jon and Nicole decided to take a photo with the grass and the lights in the background. And as it turns out, it was an amazing decision! Just as they stood next to each other and our photographer took the first photo, a breeze came rushing in. Blowing up Nicole’s wedding veil upwind, the breeze helped in creating a photo worth framing of the two! And then the two finally made it back. By the time Nicole and Jon reached the reception venue, The Madison Event Center – Covington, they did not have any time to click any photos before the reception. Deciding to come back later for the photos, the couple walked in. As they made their reception entrance, the wedding guests clapped for the newlyweds. And without wasting any time, the two lovebirds began the celebrations with their first dance! As the tunes played, the couple glided across the dance floor, in fluent, well-practiced movements. Smiles plastered on their faces were enough to show us how happy they were. Inching closer to each other, Jon and Nicole twirled around before taking turns to dance with their parents and then opened the floor for their wedding guests to enjoy!

As the guests were enjoying themselves and the couple was entertaining some of their family and friends, our wedding photographer took some shots of the wedding details. The wedding theme was perfect, simple, and elegant, black and white with some metallic touches here and there. The welcome signage for the wedding was eloquent as well. The emerald green background of the signage, paired with a lovely font that said “Welcome” and the couple’s names. The signage was decorated with lovely white, pink, and peach bloom with some greenery. To match the wedding signage’s color, the couple picked out an elegant idea for wedding escort cards and the seating chart! The seating chart was simple, with a dark backdrop, elegant cards with table numbers and the names of the guests were tacked to the board. The seating chart board had the names of the couple in gold. Another interesting addition that Jon and Nicole had added to their wedding was a table honoring those who had passed away. They had set up a table with a blue cloth and placed the photos of those who had moved to the other world. The photos were in gold frames, of them, to maintain the synchronicity of the table and its details. And an acrylic card, stating that this table was to honor those who couldn’t be with them on the wedding day was put in the center. To finish the details of the table, pretty white flowers with green leaves were added to the table. The couple also decided to add a twist to their wedding guestbook. The couple had picked out a beautiful clear container and placed pretty heart-shaped wooden chips for the guests to leave some happy notes for the couple.

Before the cake-cutting ceremony, Jon and Nicole took some more photos. This time, since there was no rush to be anywhere, everyone was enthusiastic to try out different poses. The bridesmaids posed with the groom, which is somewhat of a mandatory photo for weddings. And the groomsmen and the bride took some photos to remember the day. After that, the groomsmen and the bridesmaids returned indoors to attend the reception, the couple stayed back for a few more photos. Enjoying the lovely evening, the two walked around the venue to find some photo locations. Jon and Nicole walked around and decided that the front of the venue, the candle-lit entrance with the city in the background, would be perfect for them! So, the two went back and posed for some photos. And before the couple could go back, Jon pulled Nicole in for a kiss, pulling her leg to the side, and leaning into her, making it the perfect photo! After that, the two decided to head back. The wedding cake was a four-tiered all-white cake. The only color in the cake was the pretty white and peach flowers and the lovely cake topperSince minimalism was the theme, the wedding cake followed the same. When all the wedding guests gathered around the table, the couple delicately cut the cake together. And when they did, the wedding guests clapped, and the room filled with happy cheers. After the cake-cutting ceremony, the couple went back to their sweetheart’s table, watching their friends, and the family enjoyed the day. Our wedding photographers said their goodbyes, and left the two, watching their wedding guests enjoy the wedding day, and enjoying each other’s company.
