So, you got engaged. Tears were shed, family and friends were called, and a celebration party was even worked in to your busy, wedding-planning schedule. You might still be floating on cloud nine, but starting your dress search when you're over a size 14 can bring you crashing down to Earth. Well, we're here to pick you back up.
The gown hunt doesn't have to be a nightmare of two-sizes-too-small samples and limited options. To decrease the stress factor of this often-exhausting ritual, we found gorgeous, plus-size picks that fit different budgets and styles. Ahead: A retro-inspired, tea-length frock, a sleek and sexy stunner, a creation that puts fairy-tale princesses to shame, and more designs that make it easy to say "I do" — to the dress, anyway.
