Let’s be real: No matter how involved the mother of the bride, your wedding planner or friends are, the fashion choices — both the bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses — are most likely 100 percent the bride’s decision. While that’s great when it comes to picking your own wedding gown, your ‘maids don’t often get a say as to what they’re expected to wear on your big day. This can cause a bit of friction or stress, especially for a curvy friend who may already face challenges shopping for formal dresses she likes, let alone finding a flattering plus size bridesmaid dress you’ve assigned her. Enter Lulu’s new extended sizing bridal collection.
For over two decades, the ever-affordable retailer has been dressing women for celebrations and formal events, including weddings. So, it makes perfect sense that Lulu’s recently announced an expansion to include a variety of its best-selling bridal collection styles, as well as new designs, in sizes 1X, 2X and 3X.
“We’ve been doing bridal for quite a while,” said Lulus cofounder and CEO Colleen Winter, “and [our customers] loved the affordable price point and the better-than-expected quality. Now [we] have extended sizing within the collection, because our customers really asked for it, and they deserve it … Our goal with this collection is to make sure all of our bridal customers feel confident and beautiful on their special day. We’re thrilled to be introducing inclusive sizing in bridal, which is one of our most popular categories today.”
With your wedding budget in mind, we’ve gone ahead and selected our favorite affordable plus-size bridesmaid dresses from Lulu’s at a price point of $120 or under. A generous bride (with a relatively small bridal party) could conceivably gift these gowns to her best gals without breaking the bank. Even if you can’t afford to purchase all of these yourself, your bridal squad will surely appreciate your efforts to choose a gown that’s not only affordable, but fits a range of body shapes. Everyone deserves to look and feel great at your wedding, especially the ladies who’ve been there from the start of your romance.
