The best plus size wedding boutiques in the UK


Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life. You get to marry the love of your life and spend the day surrounded by family and friends. Whilst the planning of your wedding can be incredibly exciting, some aspects of planning your wedding can be more filled with anxiety and worry. One example of this is the search for a wedding dress.

Whilst most wedding dress boutiques will custom make a dress or alter a dress for you, for some people this is an expensive option and so choosing a dress off-the-peg is the only option. In these instances, the lack of plus size options and the lack of a range of sizes in bridal boutiques means that the process of buying a wedding dress can be incredibly stressful.

But fear not, because today we thought we would take a look at five of the best plus size wedding dress boutiques across the UK.
