My best friend from college got married about a month ago. She is a plus sized girl (size 28) and was worried she wouldn't find a beautiful wedding dress. Right off, I told her to go to David's Bridal as I have seen many ads proclaiming that they have plus sized wedding dresses.
She went to one in Columbia, SC. (She lives in Camden) and found THE most beautiful dress I've ever seen...It was long and white, with the bell skirt and spaghetti straps. Beads in the back and down the train. She was so excited. It was the first dress she tried on.
I was lucky enough to go with her to pick the dress up the day before the wedding and I loved the store! It was set up beautifully, the people were courteous, and they treated her with respect. (Even while she was being a tad Bridezilla-ish.) They had the store set up by colors for the bridesmaid dresses and by sizes for the wedding dresses. Her dress was even affordable, for something that beautiful you'd expect her to have paid well over a thousand dollars, but no, just a little over six hundred.
She looked beautiful on her wedding day, and I credit this to the fine people at David's Bridal who were committed to helping her find the PERFECT dress.
