The agony of being a plus-size bridesmaid

I read an article on CNN.com today titled “The agony of being a plus-size bridesmaid”. The title alone drew me in to read the article in its entirety and after reading it I just had to blog about it. As a wedding planner, I always advice my brides to choose bridesmaid dresses that complement everyone’s figure. I could only imagine how a bridesmaid must feel when they are “forced” to wear a strapless form fitting gown that’s at least 1-2 sizes too small only because the bride insists that everyone wear a “cute” dress. “What looks pretty on a size 2 is not so pretty on a size 16.” You should want your entire bridal party to feel comfortable in their dress and their shoes. Please let’s not forget about the shoes; that’s an entirely different blog post itself. My advice is to get ALL the bridesmaids together for a professional fitting at a local bridal shop and allow everyone to have an input into the style dress they wear. Check out some of these hot picks available at www.Nordstroms.com for less than $200.00:
