Celebrating Curves at LuLu’s Bridal

Tired of hearing that they don’t carry your size? It can really put a damper on your joyful mood, especially if you found a dress you really wanted. Isn’t planning a wedding supposed to be fun and exciting? Many bridal boutiques only carry sample sizes, which often forces curvier women to look for other options.

Ready for your world to light up in fireworks? LuLu’s Bridal now offers a collection of over 200 plus-size samples from 6 different designers. Sing it out loud: Baby, you’re a firework! For over 15 years, LuLu’s Bridal has become renowned for exceptional customer service and beautiful gowns at moderate prices. Why’s that, you ask?

OUR APPROACH

The whole point of dress shopping is to have fun, make it memorable, and give it meaning. Our entire experience is built around this philosophy, and our staff takes it to heart to make your experience fun, memorable, and meaningful. At LuLu’s, every bride will be treated with respect (It’s your day, after all!). No matter what size you are, you can have an amazing experience. It’s about feeling superbly comfortable while appearing effortlessly gorgeous. Rock those curves!

HOW TO BEGIN

First, you schedule an initial consultation with one of our professional stylists. You can book an appointment online or by calling (214) 871-9610. Your stylist will be with you every careful, measured step of the way. Part of the fun of shopping is working with a stylist who listens and anticipates your needs. For our stylists, it’s all about helping you to find the perfect gown at LuLu’s. What best fits your personal style and body type? From that starting point, they can contribute to a shopping experience that is tailor-made just for you.

WHAT WE OFFER

From ball gowns to mermaid dresses to A-line gowns, we offer a variety of styles in our new collection. Since we recently made additions to our collections, we’ve made sure to include the latest trends in wedding dress designs. There’s sure to be something that you love! You can start adding dresses to your wish list, and you can talk with your stylist about the specific features you want. Check out the plus-size designer dresses at LuLu’s Bridal now.

HOW MUCH TO BUDGET

The gowns at LuLu’s Bridal range from $1,000 to $2,500. We also offer alteration services for the bridal gowns. Our alterations department is focused on how they can make alterations convenient and efficient for you. The expenses will vary depending on the work that needs to be done, but you should budget around $300 to $500. To allot time for alterations and bridal portraits, you should plan on ordering your gown about six to eight months before the wedding.

FINAL THOUGHTS

There can be so many people involved in putting a wedding together. It’s a rush of momentum as well as small (and big!) details. As you look at yourself in the fitting room mirror, take a moment to remember that it’s your experience. It’s not your mom’s or your sister’s or your stylist’s. Don’t spend any more time on the dresses that you don’t love. Get the dress that makes you feel beautiful and happy. It’s not about the dozens of eyes on either side of the aisle. Your gaze will be fixed on your one true love, at the end of the aisle, whose eyes are starting to look teary.
