One of the hardest things about being plus size is finding clothes for special occasions and the hardest thing, of course, is if that special occasion is your wedding day. Although there are lots of boutiques offering plus size wedding dresses, finding these places can be a little bit of a minefield if you’ve never had to do it before. With that in mind, here are 5 top tips for finding a plus size wedding dress: 
Do As Much Online Research As You Can
One of the best things you can do when it comes to finding a plus size wedding dress is to do your research online beforehand. Whether that means researching bridal boutiques that stock your size dress or finding out whether you can use a specific site to buy bridal dress online, the more research you’re doing in advance the better. In some cases, you may find that you have much more choice when shopping online than you do instore. 
Follow Plus Size Brides On Instagram For Inspiration
One of the best ways to find a plus size wedding dress in your size is to follow plus size brides on Instagram for inspiration. Although you may not be able to find the EXACT dress that they have, they will give you lots of tips and tricks when it comes to finding your perfect dress. Whether you want a boho bridal gown or something a little more timeless, you need to follow the people that will help inspire you on your hunt.
Book An Appointment With A Bridal Designer
If you know exactly what style of dress you want but you can’t find it anywhere, why not speak to a designer who will be able to create your dream dress for you? Although this will mean your dress costs a lot more than you may have planned, you can be sure you’re going to be wearing a dress that is made to fit you perfectly. They’ll take your measurements and ask for inspiration and before you know it, you’ll have your dream wedding dress.
Ask Ahead When You’re Booking Your Appointments
If you’re unsure whether or not the bridal shop you’re visiting is going to have plus size dresses, calling ahead to ask is a great way to save yourself a disappointing visit. All you need to do is ask whether or not they stock your size and if they don’t, you simply move onto the next one.
Ask Whether Or Not Something Can Be Made In Your Size
Finally, if you find something you love it’s always worth asking whether or not it can be made in your size too.
