12 Gorgeous Plus-Size Dresses for Any Wedding
We're nearing summer, which means wedding season is around the corner. And if you're the bride, it's also time to pick out what you'll be wearing. To help you navigate the task of finding the perfect dress, we rounded up the best dresses for any venue available from sizes 14 to 30.
For shopping tips from a seasoned expert, we chatted with Molly Guy, creative director and co-founder of Stone Fox Bride. She has been in the bridal industry since 2012 and launched a line of plus-size wedding dresses with Eloquii last year.
Here, Molly Guy shares her top tip for curvy brides: "The one thing I know our plus brides are most concerned about is that they have enough support in their busts and usually that means the dress usually can't be backless, so they can wear a bra with really good support. So that sort of translates across the board, whether it's beach or black-tie or barn."
Molly also shared her tips on the best wedding dresses to look for by venue. Whether you're getting married on the beach or the country, at city hall or a black-tie affair, we've rounded up the best wedding dresses for when you say "I do."

"The most important thing our brides are concerned about who are getting married on a beach is they don't want any fabric that's really clingy or thick or any lace that's stiff. They want to be mindful that the dress is not too tight in the armpits and, if they're long sleeves, that they are flowy long sleeves."
"This is a great time for a fitted dress—a beautiful, really structured corset, a mermaid skirt, or a really plunging neckline. It's definitely the time to go with more structure like boning, a corset, mermaid skirt, or cumberbund if you really want to feel nipped and tucked."
"For city hall weddings, the rules are kinda like anything goes. It's the time to wear a white pantsuit or wide-leg white pants with a white blouse and a black leather jacket or a beautiful little minidress. Something that is urban and chic, cool, where you can like take your shoes off afterward and walk in the park or something."
"Wear something beautiful and chic and structured enough that they're not super flowy and bohemian. They also they work really well barefoot in the grass or with some flowers in your hair."
