So where to shop for these mythical plus size bridesmaids dresses on a budget? We got you—just read on.
Where to Shop Plus Size Bridesmaid Dresses?
David’s Bridal is a little like the WalMart of the bridal industry – cheap products, mass produced, in a manage-the-herd type of setting. While it’s not very romantic, it is a retailer that offers affordable bridesmaids dresses in a wide range of sizes, frequently with dresses in a range of sizes in stock (rather than being produced to order, which can on average take 3-4 months). On a short timeline, or with bridesmaids on budgets of varying sizes, it’s worth a look. We like this Lace Cap Sleeve Dress with Side Ruffles, for $149, also available in missy sizes.
