Oh my gosh - I'm so excited/nervous! I'm going dress shopping for the first time tomorrow!
I have gone INTO a dress shop previously but it was a horrible experience. They had about 8 plus-size dresses and kept them in a janitorial-sized closet in the back of the store, off the floor where all the "normal" sized dresses are. It was humiliating and heart-breaking to feel like I was "less than" and not a "real" bride because I'm a plus-sized girl.
I checked on the store we are going to already so I don't have to go through that experience again. They are very plus-size friendly and have lots of samples in plus-sizing so I hope that I will at least be able to try a few different styles on. I have lost 32 pounds and am down two dress sizes so I feel more confident going in this time. Plus I'll have my mom with me and last time I was alone so it will be better with some emotional support.
Less than 8 months til I do - I am planning on losing another 15-18 pounds this year and then another 25 in 2013 before the wedding. I really want to find something that will show off my curves since I will have worked so hard to get healthier in the 10 months prior to the wedding.
Any other plus size brides out there? How was your dress shopping experience?
