    my mum is getting married on the 25th of september 2009.
    she still hasn't got a wedding outfit yet. :eek:

    she has looked at loads of places, even on the internet with no luck.
    the ones she sees are either abroad or are expensive!!

    she wants an outfit that she is comfortable in but doesn't cost a fortune.

    surely they must be lovely wedding outfits for a plus size bride that doesn't cost a fortune.:rolleyes:

    if anybody knows anywhere - it would really be appreciated!

    we new that as a rusult of my mum being more "cuddly" that it would be a bit of an issue regarding a wedding outfit - but we didn't know it was going to be this bad.

    we live in the north lanarkshire area of scotland if thats any help :)

    I have just had a look, I have to say their bridal wear isn't very nice.
    Hope she does find something and has a brilliant day.

    We have wedding shops that hire wedding outfits plus all the accessories, you can get a really expensive wedding dress or outfit without the expense, one really nice one called de ja vue. Dont know if you do, well worth looking at if you have

    St Enoch's has a few shops that sell wedding stuff. Not sure if any go up to plus sizes though. I'm not even sure if it's open because last time I was there they were rebuilding it! Could always go into Debenhams and have a look too.

    I went to debenhams looking for wedding frocks yesterday and they have lots of evening dresses in plus sizes- they only had a few white gowns but your mum might be lucky. Monsoon also had bridal dresses up to size 20 but they weren't the most flattering!

    Also a lot of wedding shops are selling off their samples now to make way for the new collections- it's certainly worth a try having a look as many of the samples are in plus sizes.

    I'm sure if she could have a couple of days dedicated to shopping she'll find something.
