Pretty Pear Bride is the brainchild of Shafonne Myers, a certified wedding and event planner that was a plus size bride who realized that the wedding industry was overlooking a vast number of their clientele, Plus Size Brides.
Pretty Pear Bride was started as a site where plus size brides can find bridal inspiration that THEY long for. So many people planning their weddings struggle with finding inspiration that includes images that look like them. Everyone wants to see people that look like them, doing what they are trying to do because it allows them to envision that they can be just as glamorous and gorgeous as they imagined. So the mission was clear: merge a love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for plus size brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration.
Pretty Pear Bride is adding new things everyday including Real Weddings every Wednesday and soon to be added Engagement Sessions and bridal showers on Tuesday. We also will be adding a vendor guide of salons, shops and establishments that carry and stock sample plus size wedding dresses, accessories, lingerie and undergarments. Also not far in the future is the creation of a forum for plus size brides to mingle and chat.
We are always open to suggestions, comments and questions about anything on the site. Feel free to reach out to us on through our Contact Page.
