Dress Shopping Hell

Sigh......I'm almost completly OVER finding a dress. Moved my wedding out by 2 months because of the budget and time crunch, BUT I cannot find a dress. Im that girl who never imagined getting married, hates white and never liked dresses. I knew is would be a challenge but this is redic! I really just want to buy one online simply because im plus size and my options are SO limited. In Floirda there is NOTHING! Or either im in the dark about where to find a great dress. Im not opposed to buying used because im so desperate for the right dress! I dont wanna look like a David's Bridal robot.....I see all these plus size girls in my area with the same dress. To me a wedding dress should be timeless, not cliche', yet special and different like me, even vintage. So far i have had not an inch of luck and im becoming discoraged.....

Ok, if you don't like white or dresses how about a nice pant suit? or how about a colored dress? how about grey or lavender or black? how about a bridesmaid dress? you need to find something that makes you feel like you are the most beautiful girl in the world ( and to your man you will be)


what is your idea of vintage? what do you envision yourself in? do you not like the dresses in your bio?


have you looked on cragslist? all the used dress sites? have you thought about having a dress made? look on etsy for custom dresses? Have you looked at unique-vintage.com?


I am going to look around and bee back in a few k?

other then timeless, what styles do you like? what dont you like? you'd be surprised how peoples deffinitions varies on what timeless vs chic actually means! so, what is timeless to you? lace? a-line? ivory? champagne? and what size are you, if you dont mind me asking?

I'm a 22/24 its a beach wedding so nothing to heavy or poofy. I like lace and vintage style dresses. I'm kinda an odd ball when it comes to style and I want to stay try to that and atill stay semi traditional. Prefer a line. I found the dress of my dreams but its in. Australia and the don't do online orders sadly. Will try to find the pic of it and post it today!

Hello Bride To Be! Don't let being a plus size bride frustrate you! I had no intention of doing a white dress, EVER. My wedding dress was ivory. I originally was going to order my dress online from romanticgowns.com but I thought the dress was two toned and it actually wasn't. It was the way the picture appeared. Thank God I chatted with a representative over the phone. Make sure if you order online you know the return and exchange policy. Here are some dresses you may like from the website. I liked the first dress for myself and I think they are perfect for a beach wedding. They come in ivory.

I was perusing and fell in love with this dress! I think it is so pretty, romantic, airy and timeless!

That last one is pretty. i think i could do a brides maid dress. i just dont want to look TOO plain. And thanks everyone for the ideas and comments. I need ideas. I just want my day to be as unique as i am. I dont want to look back and say "omg why did i wear that"! im a non-traditional girl but i dont want that to lead me to picking the wrong thing just because i know im different. Decisions Decisions!!! And my dream dress i mentioned earlier from Australia..........................here it is. I initally found it on pinterest.


 


That last one is photo 3405006-1
