Dresses: “Francesco” by Callista
I am so incredibly happy to finally share this very special editorial with you! It’s been such a lovely day at the beginning of May – perfect summer weather, perfect wedding conditions! ;)
This post is dedicated to all future curvy brides and to my husband who finally had the chance to see (and photograph) his wife not only in one beautiful wedding dress but three, even though we “just” had a civil wedding. Maybe another day… ;)
I’ve teamed up with → Vollkommen.Braut. – our local “Curvy Bridal Concept Store” in Hamburg – for a very special collab: we want to show you that being plus-size doesn’t mean you have to lose weight to wear the dress of your choice, that you can’t wear an actual wedding dress on your big day. You don’t need to give up feeling like a princess, wearing loads of tulle and lace. And you definitely don’t need to wear one of these little jackets or let the tailor add some sleeves to your favorite dress.
You’re the bride – it’s your choice. And you can’t imagine what an overwhelming feeling it is to step outside in such a stunning dress, all ready to say “I do.” and spend one of the most amazing days of your life. Never let anyone dull your sparkle you’ll have when you’re all happy in one of these dresses. And don’t you dare to say “I wish I could wear such a dream, but I’m too fat!” cause you’re not. Believe me, you’ll regret it when you don’t do what your heart wants you to do (or in this case: to wear).
The selection of plus-sized bridal dresses isn’t as small as you’d think – there are so many gorgeous dresses, you’ll probably go crazy when you see them all. My favorite brand has to be Callista and → Vollkommen.Braut. is Germany’s exclusive retailer of their creations. So if you’re not sure where to go to find YOUR dress – book a short trip to Hamburg with your girls, spend a lovely afternoon with the ladies of Vollkommen.Braut. and celebrate your bachelorette party in this wonderful town! :)
