Bijou Bridal: Putting Plus Size Brides In Centre Stage

Lots of curves demands lots of choice and Bijou Brides Delivers just that 

A while ago I wrote a blog post called "When fatty got married" detailing how I found so much of the process of getting married was restricted due to me being plus size. The biggest hurdle I found nine years ago was that nowhere seemed to cater for girls over a size 14. 
I had to order my dress from a wedding dress chain  which didn't possess a single sample size in my measurements and was made to feel the complete opposite of special.
So I'm delighted that there is now a wedding dress shop which caters specifically for brides to me with a little more junk in their trunk.
Bijou Brides based in Cobham court London stocks sizes 12-34 and is on a mission to make Women of all shapes and sizes feel beautiful and confident when choosing what is lets face it usually the most expensive frock we will ever own.
The brand is run by Marzieh Mashkoori who has years of working in the fashion industry under her belt, ensuring the dresses she offers are the equal to any you would find in upmarket bridal houses.
My favorite without  a doubt is this one.

Some SJP inspired loveliness

 It reminds me so much of the Vivienne Westwood creation Carrie Bradshaw wears to her wedding to Big in the Sex and the city movie. Wedding gowns like this just didn't exist in my size when I got married-its making me want to renew my vows!


At last plus size wedding dresses that are also high fashion

For brides wanting to incorporate some fifties inspired glamour into their big day there are fitted fishtail dresses with vintage inspired detailing.How totally stunning is this example below. Everything from the lace detailing to the darling little belt scream vintage glamazon. All its missing is a wedding band and its perfect.


Grace Kelly eat your heart out

Or for Great Gatsby chic (which I know as a make up artist I have had many bookings for this season) this dress is just perfect. 

Graceful, elegant and yes let me shout it from the rooftops, in your size!!





Celebrating your curves as you celebrate your wedding has never looked more stunning.

  1. I love these. I'm 38 years old and I've never worn a wedding dress in my life. I feel like I missed out :-(
