I’ve gone to two places to try on dresses. First experience was at a place called Bombshell Bridal in St Clair Shores, MI which specializes in Plus Size wedding dresses. I absolutely loved the experience and loved the first dress I tried on (4th dress in the photo). It felt like me and it felt like a second skin on me. I truly felt like a bride. And I cried when I put my mom’s veil on. Originally, we were going to make a hair clip veil from hers. However after seeing the whole look with my mom’s veil, I am not going to change a thing.
99% Sure i found my dress! 1The other shop I went to was David’s Bridal. Walking in there was such a wait to be helped. Totally a different experience to Bombshell. But I kind of expected that when going to a chain. However my consultant was fun to work with and she did help me feel beautiful. I loved the first and third dress in the photo. However they were $400 over my budget. And honestly they were wonderful dresses, but I didn’t feel like a bride in them. So I am pretty confident to go back to Bombshell to order my dress! 99% Sure i found my dress! 299% Sure i found my dress! 3

    At first I thought the plant behind you was like a heightened addition to your veil or something lol. Congrats though. You look beautiful!

    The dress from Bombshell looks beautiful on you and your mom’s veil is perfect with it! The color is perfect for your skin tone too. I went to a plus size shop for my dress too. The experience was wonderful.
