Let's face it, very few women fit the "Barbie doll" stereotype! That is why we are so excited to share this post today with 5 plus size wedding dresses that will make you LOVE your curves!
LatterDayBride, a division of Gateway Bridal and Prom in Salt Lake City, UT now boasts the largest selection of plus size bridal gowns available to try on, order, and take home in the state! Their Bridal Curves collection includes a TON of modest wedding dresses available in every size.
But what fun is it to go wedding dress shopping and the store only has "Barbie doll" samples? It's really hard to tell whether you like a dress or not if you can't even try it on. That's why the LatterDayBride Bridal Curves collection has over 100 plus size wedding dress samples up to size 28 for you to try on right in the store. Sweet, right!?
LatterDayBride says "Let's celebrate our Bridal Curves selection, a large section of our store dedicated to our curvy, bold and beautiful brides!" We can't agree more, so here we are to show you just a few of the gorgeous modest wedding dresses they carry for brides of every shape and size!
The 'Cosette' gown is a lovely modest wedding dress features a unique bateau neckline, fully beaded bodice and delicate tulle skirt. This gown available in Champagne/Ivory/Silver, Ivory/Ivory/Silver, White/White/Silver, and White/White, and the sleeve length and neckline can be totally customized!
The 'Langdon' gown is brand new to the LatterDayBride collection this year. The gorgeous fit and flare silhouette flatters any body, and the delicate scalloped lace sleeves and neckline are divine. This gown is available in White, Ivory or Vintage/Ivory!
The 'Baldwin' is a classic satin A-line modest dress featuring a sweetheart neckline, scattered lace appliques and a flattering asymmetrical wrap cinching the waist. This gown is available in Ivory or White. Again, the sleeve length or neckline can be customized! Our real bride Julie is absolutely radiant rocking her Baldwin gown!
The 'Tatum' gown is a classic A-line modest wedding gown featuring a darling waistband, flattering princess seams, sweetheart neckline and a corset back. It is available in Ivory or White and like many dresses at LatterDayBride, the sleeves and neckline can be customized! Another thing to LOVE about this dress? It's under $500. Yep, no excuses not to have a gorgeous wedding dress now, right?
Our real bride Lunden is so stunning, we are so glad she shared her bridal photos with us!

Even though LatterDayBride has the most ready-to-wear modest wedding dresses in the world, sometimes a bride falls in love with a dress at Gateway Bridal that isn't quite modest yet. That's why LatterDayBride LOVES their vendors! One vendor, Casablanca Bridal, is able to customize almost anything to fit each bride individually!
Our real bride Kylie absolutely had to have Casablanca Style 1900, and we were more than happy to work with her to make it perfect! By adding illusion lace sleeves, it became exactly what she envisioned!
We hope this post makes you curvy brides out there so excited to go out and find a plus size wedding dress that you absolutely adore! Let's embrace our curves and find the perfect gown for your big day!
This week we have a real treat for you guys. We get to feature a real bride and groom (our fav) in the mountains of Utah (another plus) WITH a gorgeous modest lace wedding dress by LatterDayBride! I mean, c'mon, what can be better than that?
Gorgeous real bride Kate and her Prince Charming Alex opted to do a bridal and formal session prior to their actual wedding. We love these shoots. They feel so intimate and relaxed, and couples can get all the pictures they really want without the time constraints of the wedding day.
Kate's dress is the gorgeous Bronwin gown by LatterDayBride (a division of Gateway Bridal and Prom in Salt Lake City). She really makes a statement with this one of a kind wedding gown complete with a v-neckline, delicate lace sleeves and a fabulous draping sheath silhouette finished with wide lace scalloping. Another awesome thing about the Bronwin is that it comes in champagne/ivory, ivory, or white AND the sleeves and neckline can be completely customized!
Photographer Alisha Gregson Photography in Provo, Utah, totally created a masterpiece with this bridal session. We love the dreamy, whimsical style her photography always brings, and this shoot is no exception. We think you will agree, these mountain bridals featuring a modest lace wedding dress by LatterDayBride are absolutely stunning!
On another note, make sure you visit our partner, LatterDayBride in the new Gateway Bridal and Prom showroom at 360 W. Broadway, Ste. 101 in Salt Lake City, Utah OR shop online at www.latterdaybride.com.

We are excited to feature these beautiful Utah Lake bridals by Utah wedding photographer Emma Matheson!
Emma says, "Lace gowns are popular right now, and I have seen a lot of dresses with the same lace. However I have never seen the lace on Melissa's gown and I loved how unique it is!"
We agree! Melissa's champagne modest lace wedding dress by Mia Solano is definitely unique, and is yet another example of how gorgeous modest gowns can be. The sheath silhouette is form fitting in all the right places and is extremely flattering on Melissa. The v-neck neckline accentuates her beautiful features.
Melissa told us a little about her love story:
"So when we first started dating, I had told my then boyfriend that I loved to hike and I showed him pictures of a place that I thought would be a cool place to hike. We continued to date and at the end of February, the weather had warmed up a little and he asked me if I wanted to go on a hike with him at Tibble Fork Resevoir, the place I had told him about when we first started dating. We started on the hike and we got to a spot that you could see the whole lake and I turned around to keep hiking and he was on one knee with a ring in his hand. It was the best day ever."
So cute! Thank you so much for sharing these Utah Lake bridals with us Emma!
We hope you all enjoyed these fun lakeside bridals at Utah Lake featuring a unique and modest lace wedding dress! We know we certainly did!
