Plus Size Wedding Dresses

We have plus size wedding dresses for you to try going through to size 24, and we're pretty creative if you need something beyond that, too. There's a great range of dresses from the top plus size wedding dress designers as well as plenty of size 16 wedding dresses too - so you'll be able to relax here.

When placing your own order, you will find that almost every wedding dress in the shop comes in a full range of sizes through to a British size 34.

On this page you can see the plus-size wedding dresses available at our Northamptonshire wedding dress shop.  We carry dresses from top designer labels including Essense of Australia, Stella York and Ian Stuart couture dresses, too.

Is Gowns & Garters Your Nearest Plus-Size Wedding Dress Shop?

If you typed "plus-size wedding dress shop near me" into Google, we want to make sure you really are in range of Gowns & Garters.

Many brides will travel up to two hours to visit a plus-size bridal boutique, so let's just explain where we are.

We are a Northamptonshire wedding dress shop, just off the A14, a 10 minute drive from Kettering and Wellingborough, 15 minutes from Huntingdon and 35-40 minutes from Cambridge.

Brides often travel a long way to us because of our full-service, from the best collection of dresses to the in-house bridal alterations service.

How Much are Your Plus-Size Wedding Dresses - Prices

Our plus-size wedding dresses start at £899 through to £1899.  We also carry couture dresses from celebrity designer Ian Stuart (from Channel 4's The Posh Frock Shop) if you're looking to invest a little more in a wedding dress for your special day.

Which Plus Size Wedding Dress Designers Do You Have?

We have chosen dresses from the top designer labels like Essense of Australia, Stella York, Maggie Sottero and Lillian West

We like these dresses because along with their great style, they have been designed with structure that keeps you looking fabulous all day long.

This is true whether the dress is on a tiny number 6 bride, or a full-figured size 26 wedding dress - all the way up to 34 and everything in between.

Ian Stuart's designs in particular have proven to be very popular for plus size brides, as can be seen in his wonderful The Posh Frock Shop tv series.  From Ian's collection we carry a beautiful blue plus size wedding dress.

Do You Have Plus Size Wedding Dresses with Sleeves, Jacket, Pockets, a Cape, Or Ooh-La-La?

If you're looking for a wedding dress with a very specific feature, like a jacket, lace sleeves, cap sleeves, pockets, a long train,  straps, feathers or beading, you may have found it hard to track down your ideal wedding gown.

That's where The Alterations Service at Gowns & Garters can make your dreams come true.  Our expert seamstresses can do bespoke work and alterations that look as if they were designed into your dress in the first place.

It's one of the reasons that brides from all over the country choose Gowns & Garters for their plus size wedding dresses.

What Style of Plus Size Wedding Dress is Best for Apple Shape, Pear Shape, Large Bust and Every Other Need...

No matter what your shape is, there will be a dress that will work for you in our boutique.  We find that it's a lot more personal than matching a dress silhouette to a simple body shape name.

The articles about dress types for body shapes are interesting to read and give you a starting point, but they should not be treated as a strict set of rules to work with.

We prefer for you to try a range of styles to find something that feels comfortable to you, and gives you that wow factor that every bride is looking for.  Don't be surprised if we suggest you try a few dresses that we think might work well for you - we've been doing this a long time, and know our plus size wedding dresses well!
