Better Bridal Looks for Every Size and Every Style

With so many weddings creeping up these days, it got me thinking, "What options are really out there for brides over a size 14?" I know that wedding-mania spawns obsessive weight-loss desires, even from the most confident of women. Personally I think it is absurd to need a body transformation for a day that is supposed to celebrate your relationship with a partner who loves you just the way you are. So keeping in that spirit all of the following bridal finds are for a plus-size bride to look her best at her size.

As soon as I started looking, I noticed that most of the options are poufy, strapless princess gowns. Some of them can look good, but in my opinion, it hides curvy ladies' signature decolletage and highlights the upper arms, which let's face it, isn't always our favorite body part.

FoxyRoxy is on a mission for flattering, unique, high-quality gowns with a right-off-the-runway feel for any kind of bride. Move over David's Bridal...check these stunners out:

Bride with an Edge:  Show-stopping looks for ladies who want something a little funky, retro or a little rock and roll. 
Take a sexy short dress and make it your own with edgy accessories like fishnets or bold black or colored shoes. Don't want a traditional veil? Try a tiny hat with a veil or a simple flower or feather "fascinator." and Ebay have a cool ones to choose from.
