Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Here at Bride To Be in Reading, we understand that not all brides are a per size 10! We know that our plus size brides are just as fashion conscious as everyone else and want to look stunningly beautiful on their wedding day! With this in mind we have put together a fabulous collection of on-trend, plus size wedding dresses by our favourite award winning, designers.

Our experienced staff are here to help you find your dream dress, and our onsite seamstresses are able to make bespoke changes to your dress such as adding sleeves or straps, making it completely unique to you! We can also offer a private fitting room, if you would like a more relaxed and private gown buying experience.
