    i will rather you go to seamstress. bridal shops honestly the gowns is just sooooo reuse and use? not caring what u want but u hav to pay more for those lousy quality? gowns do wear and tear too... if u do not have budget to go for designer i will suggest u go for a good seamstress.

    It costs much more to get a plus size wedding gown from bridal boutiques. My cousin's hubby was a plus size and the package went up from 4k to 5k. But her hubby got to keep the wedding suit though and according to their BS the suit was made to measure and was never worn before by others..dunno how true haha. So the good thing about plus size dresses is that they would most likely be MTM and new..just that it would be more expensive.

    You can do made-to-measure gowns from most bridal boutiques. Look for one with an experienced designer. Take a look at their OTR gowns to see if their cuttings are good. Especially important for plus sized brides!

    I'm looking around and shortlisted a few bridal shops:
    Digio
    Bridal zone
    Bridal De Couture

    If i look for a seamstress, will the gowns be very expensive?

    I think seamstress is much cheaper than getting from bridal boutiques.

    not all bridal studios require a top up for plus sized brides. you can try going to a few first, to see if you are able to fit into their gowns. They tend to include flexibility in their gowns so that they can do business with brides of all shapes and sizes. so don't fret!

    I suggest you go and visit bridal shops first, try some of their gowns and if you like them, go and sign up with them. I f you're having difficulty looking for a gown because of the size, I suggest you proceed to looking for a seamstress. Good luck!
