Plus size brides-to-be, we've just made shopping for the perfect occasion easier! As a newly engaged gal, you’re about to be celebrated in a variety of ways from an engagement party to a bridal shower to a bachelorette. Then, it’s time for the grand finale—your wedding! Which means a rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch is likely on the agenda, too. For all these occasions, you will undoubtedly be in need of a few gorgeous plus size dresses, and for spring and summer, amazing options abound.

If you’re feeling a floral print, the latest options come vintage-inspired either as ditzy motifs or as splashy patterns. In a range from pastel shades to super saturated colors and cut in fresh silhouettes with asymmetric details, this look is a winner for those with a penchant for modern blooms. Gingham and polka dots are two other patterns worth considering—in figure-flattering shapes like a romantic tiered skirt or an A-line mini, it’s a fun way to wear a print if flowers aren’t your thing.

For a romantic and springy palette, seasonal pastels are a great way to go. Choose from of-the-moment lavender, pale peach, soft pink, or icy blue for a look that feels frothy-fresh! Lace is a lovely option—we’re for modern cuts like a high-low hem, figure-flattering midi, or a feminine halter neck with a tiered skirt.

Perhaps you’re in the mood for bridal white. If you’re the fashion forward type, aim for a style with trendy 80s influence like a puffed shoulder sheath. How about a cape-style silhouette for a so now look? Or, keep things classic with a sophisticated lacy number, floral appliqué sundress, or a minimal one-shoulder mini. All breathtaking options for those with timeless style.

Here, get inspired with 24 beautiful plus size dresses engaged gals need to see. With most options coming in under $100, you’ll be able to scoop up a few frocks for a bridal wardrobe that’s second to none. Get shopping!
