Wedding Bells are Ringing! Part One

Posted on: May 8, 2009

In honor of the wedding season, I have decided to post wedding gown options and a few bridesmaids options for the plus size woman. 

I could have done a post with dresses for all those involved, i.e. mother of the bride, guests, flower girl…But with so much information available I couldn’t possibly do this subject the injustice of only posting one picture for each situation.

Therefore, I have decided to sprinkle in a few bridal posts along with regular posts for the next week or so. So that we can see the vast range of choices for all facets of clothing for nuptials.

As you can see I have gotten caught up with all things wedding. Today I’m introducing two designers,  Alfred Angelo and Kirstie Kelly.

Alfred Angelo’s dresses are available online at the company’s site and at Plus Size Bridal Online.   The gowns he makes are beautiful, plentiful and hard to choose from. Available in sizes from 2-28, here are a few of the dresses the company offers.

Iridescent Satin with Re-Embroidered Lace,Crystal and Pearl Beading  and Sequins; Trumpet Skirt, Chapel Train; Optional Spaghetti Straps French Pink

Trim and Embroidery Available in 55 Colors, the gown is also available without embroidery.

The second designer, Kirstie Kelly, has a line of couture wedding gowns available (but not in plus sizes) at kirstie kelly.com.  She also has a ready to wear line (also not available in plus sizes).   But it’s fierce, and trust me, you’ll want to look anyway.  Kelly has partnered with Disney to create the Kirstie Kelly for Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Collection available at disneybridal.com


The gown collections on the site are named after the Disney pricesses: Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Jasmine, Ariel, Belle and Giselle.  The gowns are available in sizes 2-24 with some bridesmaids gowns available to a 32. 


 If you are between sizes 26-32, and you are a bride, don’t follow the rules.  If you like what you see from the bridesmaids gowns, get one in the color you want and get married in it. Some of them look like wedding gowns, and anyway, It’s your day! Here are wedding gowns (one from each princess collection) and bridesmaids gowns.

It’s a shame they didn’t use any Plus Size models for the photos, I would have liked to have seen some.  Although, I do like th mix of races that are apparent in the Disney gown photos. 

All the gowns are very beautiful and every mother who sees her daughter in one is definitely going to start tearing up.  But enough with the mushy, mushy.   


I hope that brides to be and hopefuls got something out of this post.  Next go round we won’t do as many wedding gowns, don’t worry.

You can find more Plus Size dresses at Sydney’s Closet.
