Unlock Your True Beauty On The Big Day – Tips For Plus Size Brides

Getting married can be one of the most exciting time in anyone’s life, but the thought of having everyone looking at you can be a little daunting. The only way to calm those nerves is to ensure that your appearance is absolutely perfect and that you’re comfortable. Comfortable brides are always happier.

Even as a confident plus size woman, planning for the wedding day may test your self-confidence more than usual. Follow the five simple tips, and this needn’t be a problem any longer. Instead, you’ll cast the assured and beautiful figure that you do every day. Only 10x better!


Start With The Dress

Every bride-to-be dreams of wearing the perfect dress. While many designers will create their outfits in bigger sizes, they are still very much geared towards the petite woman. Specialised plus size wedding dresses will look better, feel better, and generally be far better. Do remember that plenty of plus retailers have started making affordable wedding dresses too, it’s definitely worth looking around. When you walk down the aisle with the confidence gained from wearing the dress that’s right for you, the impact is enormous. Use this as your platform, and everything else should fall into place. 

Be Comfortable

There’s no doubt that the right choice of footwear can have the most significant impact of all on your big day. You may want to go for something super high but if you don’t usually wear heels, you might find this straining on the day. You don’t want to feel uncomfortable or be in pain, so try opting for a kitten heel, wedge, or flat shoes instead. It’s your day, you can do whatever you want. 

Focus On The Hands

You’ll naturally want the entire wedding look to sparkle. However, it’s easy to forget that your hands will gain more attention than ever before. Classic engagement rings should be joined by equally elegant wedding bands. Meanwhile, a manicure is something that should be high on your agenda too. After all, your hands will be appearing in a lot of photos from exchanging rings to the first dance. Whether you want something nude and natural, or bright and colourful, make your hands look and feel perfect.


The preparations for the big day begin long before you walk down the aisle. So, when it does arrive, you’ll want a reason to smile. Improving the look of your pearly whites is the perfect way to do this. The easiest and most affordable option is to use home whitening kits. However, you can take this to the next phase with professional work such as wearing invisible braces for a few months leading up to the wedding. Smile in style, and your entire aura will improve.

Travel In Style

Before leaving for the venue, you’ll put a lot of effort into your hair and makeup while also ensuring your outfit fits perfectly. Unfortunately, the elements have the potential to disrupt this look completely. Riding in a vintage wedding car isn’t only an enjoyable experience. It provides the space and comfort needed to keep your look intact. As you walk through those doors and down the aisle, the reaction will be incredible. You’ll have never looked better.
