Shopping for a plus-size beach wedding gown is not a difficult task if approached the correct way.
1, Know your body shape. Wedding dresses run small or true-to-size; rarely do they run big. Determine if you are top heavy, bottom heavy or hourglass.
2, Browse through sites and magazines and print or tear out pictures that appeal to you. Eventually you'll see a pattern in the dresses that you are drawn to.
3,Attend bridal shows in your area. These shows are popular in the late winter and early spring and showcase new and upcoming bridal wear.
4,Visit bridal and special-occasion stores. Be sure about what you like and dislike; going in armed with what you want and what you know will fit your body shape is key.
