It has always been a priority for us to offer beautiful wedding dresses for every bride to try at Hope’s. That is why we heavily invest in plus size wedding dresses. Between our two stores, we have over 100 wedding dress styles in sample sizes 18 and up. You are sure to find a gown you love that looks and feels great; the biggest problem may be deciding which one you love the most!
“A size is just a number. What matters on your wedding day is how you feel walking toward that person you love. Your fiancé will think you look beautiful no matter what you wear, but we’re here to make sure you feel your most beautiful on that big day!” Hope’s owner, Diane, says.
If you are a curvy bride, rest assured that our caring staff is experienced and thrilled to help you find your dress. If you are anxious about trying on dresses, let us know how you are feeling when you call to set up your appointment or when you arrive, so we can give you an idea of what to expect. We will do our best to make you feel at ease!
A bridal stylist will help you into and out of the dresses you choose while any guests you bring sit in the stage viewing area. Please know that our consultants have been in the dressing rooms with brides of all different shapes and sizes, so she is in no way judging you- she just wants to make you feel beautiful! For your comfort, you may want to wear undergarments like shapewear that provide you more coverage, but that’s completely up to you! We also offer robes in our dressing room area, so you can slip that on between dresses.
Here is just a taste of the selection you will find in our plus size wedding dresses. Keep in mind our inventory is always changing and varies between our two stores. Additionally, we have dresses from almost all our designers in plus sizes, so see more available styles on this Wedding Dresses Page. We’re excited to help you find YOUR perfect dress!
Once you have found YOUR wedding dress, know that our expert fitting and alterations staff is there to make sure your gown fits as comfortably and perfectly as possible. They are even able to offer custom design services such as adding sleeves or changing a neckline in many cases. (Alterations are a separate charge.
