I totally understand what you mean!! I was terrified when I went into the first bridal shop, getting naked in front of a total stranger is something most people would probably be scared of no matter what size they are! Luckily, the woman who owned the store was fabulous and totally put me at ease when I told her how nervous I was! I ended up really enjoying myself and felt like a princess in all of the gowns I tried on!
I know not all sales assistants are going to be that friendly but I am just trying to keep in mind that this is supposed to be one of the most exciting and memorable parts of planning a wedding and if anyone tries to spoil it for me I will literally kick their ass!! And if I don't then my mum/sister/BM will!
I think its a good idea to let them know how you're feeling and hopefully they will be sensitive to that and make you feel amazing! The designers make their dresses available in plus size for a reason, women want to feel like a princess on their big day no matter what size they are!!!
I've had this back from a bridal store I contacted yesterday ...
congratulations on your engagement! We do have Snow White but only in a size 12. We do have all sizes available to try on in other styles and we can order up to a size 32 in majority of designs.
At the moment we have a few size 22 and a size 24 in stock for you to try.
Hope this helps if you need any more information please don't hesitate to get in touch
Have sent them a message back asking if that's the disney dresses they have available in a variety of sizes or just normal dresses
I say try them on. I had a really nice store when I went for my first dress try on. I told them i didn't want to look ridiculous and they were all really helpful. I went to 4 and they were all great in the end. Didn't get a bad one at all!
Hi There Emily,
Yes, we are a stockist of the Disney collection & we carry quite a large plus size range also. We have samples up to a size 32 that can be tried. General delivery time on Wedding gowns is 6-9 months so you do have plenty of time but please feel free to book an appointment to come & try some dresses on to start getting some ideas.
We are open Mon-Sat 9.30-5.30.
We too hear many horror stories about brides being made to feel bad about themselves in other stores but, I can assure you, that won't happen with us. As far as we're concerned, all brides are beautiful brides regardless of their shape.
We look forward to hearing from you when you're ready to start trying on.
I'm so tempted to make an appointment with them for after christmas
