Thought I’d join in with the plus-size bride submissions.
I think on a wedding day more than anything the pressure to look perfect and ‘lose that extra weight’ is massive… so I think its a very brave step for those of us who choose to go against the norm. From the very beginning I knew I wasn’t going to engage in dangerous crash dieting, I’ve been fat all my life so why would I change? My husband asked me to be his bride just as I am, not on the condition that I lose weight. So it always upsets me when bride’s think they have to lose weight to look ‘perfect’. We’re beautiful just the way we are, and I have to say that on my wedding day I truly did feel perfect, I had the privilege of wearing a one-of-a-kind hand made dress as my auntie is a seamstress and created it to fit my body perfectly.
