If Reem Acra’s Spring 2011 Bridal Collection is an indicator of what I can expect, I am excited and feel that I (especially with me and MY expensive tastes!) have hope for my own designer gown one day (a long day away! lol)!

    Wow, these are stunning. I had such trouble finding a plus size wedding dress that had any sort of uniqueness to it. Makes me want to renew my vows (even though it’s only been 3 years) to wear a fabulous dress!

    I had no idea this place existed, and is SO close to me! I may have figured it out when I got married, but we ended up going the court house route… I’m so excited about this, for vow renewals in my future!

    Eco-Couture bridal gown designer Adele Wechsler launched a plus size run during Bridal Market last month. I can’t wait to see more bridal designer launch plus size collections.

    It’s funny because Reem Acra seems to think that plus size brides are a new thing.  When in actuality the plus size consumer is driving more of the market than the size 6 bride.  Unforgettable by Bonny Bridal has been making the top plus size gowns in the industry for over 7 years.  Their gowns are available in sizes 16W to 32W with no plus size fee and not only that but you can even custom order your gown with a custom bust, waist, hip, arm circumference….etc.  The best part of all is that these gowns are moderately priced.  Their fit is amazing and the styles are beautiful.  I recommend all plus size girls consider them.
