I’m just turned 34, and I’m slowing climbing that ladder to 40. And when you are a woman after 25, you are constantly bombarded with: “When are you going to marry and pop out kids.” Hilariously enough, I adopted my kids first and have been single most of my adult life. Now, though I have found the person who I want to spend the rest of my life with and for the first time in a long time I have been seriously thinking about marriage.

I have turned into the girl looking through wedding magazines and blogs, putting ideas in Pinterest boards and all of that craziness. So I was inspired by my recent happiness to make a plus size wedding post even though it the same week of Halloween and nowhere near the so-called wedding month.

The Look

First, let’s start the dress. If I was getting married, I would not want some big fluffy wedding dress that makes me look like a cupcake. When it comes to my personal style I prefer simple things. I also have a deep love of retro style dresses, so when I spotted this gorgeous lace aline tea dress from Modcloth (yes, ModCloth actually size exclusive line of wedding dresses). It’s cute, but sexy without being too much.

Next, around the dress is a simple teal slash. Shades in the Cyan color family are my favorite colors. Since it’s Autumn, you can get away with a pop of color with this teal ribbon slash. It doesn’t seem much but these little details really make your wedding outfit unique and special.

Over the dress, because of this an Autumn outfit, you need warmth; especially if you are having an outside wedding. This simple but elegant white faux fur wrap is perfect the cold weather accessory on your wedding day.

Then, I chose the shoes. Now, I am sort traditional about this, and I believe in wearing heels at a formal event such as weddings. However, I can’t wear tall heels anymore and I don’t know about you but I want to be comfortable. The answer to this dilemma: Kitten Heels. Kitten heels will save your feet whenever you are walking the aisle or if you are going to doing a lot of dancing at the reception. This is why I choose this gorgeous pair of gold metallic kitten heels at Zappos.

Next, I added another teal accent in the form of these pretty square earring studs from Kate Spade.  Again, if you want your wedding outfit to be more colorful the best way to do it other than the dress itself is with the accessories.  Speaking of accessories, I added a bouquet. Now, I would prefer silk flowers but I just fell in love with these teal and white calla lilies I found on Etsy.

Then the final accessory is, of course, the wedding ring. Again, teal is one of my favorite colors. So teal will diffidently be wedding color, and since my partner’s favorite color is purple it’s a color palette made in heaven. And when it rings, I rather have gemstones than diamonds any day of the freaking week! Fortunately, for this apatite wedding ring, I don’t choose. This is an apatite ring with a diamond accent.


This is my outfit idea for an Autumn or Winter plus size wedding. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it? Or do you have any wedding memories you would like to share? Let me know down in the comments!

  1. Lovely picks Gigi for yourself. I know how you feel about keeping it simple. In my second marriage I went with a simple White dress from David’s Bridal I bought online, some cute, White kitten heels and made my own flower bouquet. I t was simple and budget friendly . I pinned your article to my Spotlight Picks on Pinterest 🙂

    1. Ah, thanks so much Trina! i have never been attracted to the big fancy production weddings. So simple and budget friendly is right up alley! And your wedding sounds lovely Trina and I bet you were beautiful on your big day.

    1. That sounds fantastic, Emma! Honestly, I am all for wearing non-white wedding dresses at the best possible prices. Also, I love eBay, because you can literally buy anything on that.

    1. This is how I feel about flowers! If I’m getting flowers I want flowers that will last. And it’s more environmental friendly as well. Also, I love the sound of your wedding. It’s a concept I can totally get behind.

  2. So I was really eager to read this post because I was obsessed with the show Say Yes To The Dress, until it stopped showing here.

    It’s nice to learn a little bit more about you from this post, Gigi. First: congratulations on the upcoming wedding! I can’t wait to see what you pick out for your big day! I love the wedding outfit idea you chose, it looks beautiful.

    I got married pretty young but unlike most young brides I know, I was the furthest thing from a bridezilla. I let my mom decide most things for me, except for my wedding outfit and bouquet. It was a simple wedding, and I’m glad I kept it that way.

    1. Me too, Liyana! When I was younger I would watch all the wedding shows from Bridezilla to Say Yes To The Dress. I kind of grew out of it, but now that my partner and I are together I’m all about the wedding things. Also, I’m totally here for simple weddings. Planning a big wedding is such a huge fuss and I don’t blame you for letting your mother plan the bulk of it.
