By Christie Denson

Love is in the air! And if it also means that wedding bells are in your future, chances are you’re on the hunt for fashion that will help you look and feel your best for all the events surrounding your big day. We’ve been helping plus size women find clothes they love for over 20 years, and so here are some tips to consider as you plan your wedding from finding the engagement party dress to swimming on your honeymoon.

Saying Yes to the Dress

I mean when it comes down to it, the wedding dress really sets the tone and feel for the type of wedding you want. Boho chic? Princess Glam? Simple and Sexy? The affordable, yet timeless collection at Kiyonna is a great place to start. We love their form fitting Paloma Ruched Dress in ivory to show off all your amazing curves. It’s perfect option as a sexy bachelorette party dress, and with the right accessories elegant and chic for wedding itself. 

Picking the Palette

The experts at WeddingWire and the Pantone Color Institute announced the top wedding colors for 2019. Living Coral made the top of the list, with bold vibrant colors being the hero of any pallette. Bold and vibrant bridesmaid dresses from Sydney’s Closet are designed specifically for plus size women size 14-40. This Classic Beauty long gown that comes in six bold colors. These are also great options for wedding shower, rehearsal dinner and mother of the bride dresses that fit and flatter plus size women.

Supporting and Comforting

We hope your future spouse is both, but this tip is actually about your underwear. Once you find each perfect outfit from engagement party to I do, don’t forget about the right intimates to go underneath. Consider your level of activity, weather and travel, and find quality fabrics that will keep you feeling your best.  We recommend JunoActive’s Hush Naturals collection for silky soft comfort. Also, consider stretch naturals v-neck dress, a comfy and flattering option to slip into at the end of the night.

Honey-mooning in Style

When the chaos of wedding day is done, and you are relaxing with your love (we see visions of a tropical beach and a fancy umbrella drink)-- keep that post-wedding vibe alive with some fun new outfits and a great swimsuit. JunoActive’s QuickEnergy swim dress is ideal for your honeymoon getaway. The Supportive QuikEnergy™ fabric  holds you in, creating a sleek silhouette that you won’t even need a cover-up. JunoActive also has you covered for everyday activewear that will work great even when it's time to relax.
