1. A wedding dress can be 2 pieces. Much easier to fit. Find a killer top and then have a simple skirt made.
2. Get the best fabric you can afford.
3. Cleavage. You got it, sugar. Flaunt it!

I agree with the two piece dress. Much easier! And cleavage is something to be so proud of! Cheesy Always bare enough to look sexy, but leave enough hidden so you don't look straight out of the trailer park wedding series! Zaftig--- I tried to follow your link to look at your dress but I couldnt  Cry Cry Now, could it be cause your in the UK and I am in the US?Huh should I put .uk or what Huh Any ideas? Anyone? Cheesy

Edited to say: BTW, Zaf... the dresses there are lovely! I may have to steal some of their design ideas. Which one was your wedding dress?

Edited again to say: Their male models aren't bad, either! Rowr!

My beloved had his wedding suit from there too and he looked GORGEOUS (of course) in it much tastier than their models  Wink Wink Wink only thing is, he shaved before our wedding so only looks 13 yrs old on the photos!!

My dress is the Alchemy one. I have wore it out twice since  Grin Velvet ROCKS lol

oops I .com'd when I should have .co.uk'd
sorry  Embarrassed

Velvet does rock! And nothing better than men in velvet! (rowr again! Cheesy )
The Alchemy dress is lovely! I'll bet you looked stunning!
Oh, but Zaf, in the States it's illegal to marry 13-yr-olds! *snicker* You crazy Brits! lol

I agree, David's Bridal ROCKS for all sizes.

Actually, I went to a local bridal shop and asked what they had in my size.  After a good fitting, I ended up with this for about $300 including the alterations!

These pix are funky stretched out weird, and you really can't see the beading detail all over the skirt part, it's a beautiful dress!!!


Side view:


And I couldn't find gloves that I liked to cover my hairy hands, so I dolled up some fingerless ones from David's:

Wow I haven't been on here for awhile...  So the wedding is the seventh and my aunt made my dress.  I'll post pictures once I have some since the dress is in Ohio and I am not!  Here's the pattern she used:

The sleeves and drapey thing across the front didn't work out but it's ok, I love it anyway.
