  • Courtney Fontenot- Alpha Prosperity Events - Thank you for sharing this fabulous wedding. I really loved how she incorporated the idea of antiques throughout the wedding, especially in the centerpieces. Those centerpieces were great conversation starters. I could hear the conversations now, “My grandmother used one of those.” I also loved this brides attitude about being a plus sized bride. I struggle with showing my arms because I have bat-wings but this brides comments made a whole lot of sense; “Your happiness makes you a stunning bride.” This is definitely good advice that I will be sharing with all of my brides, and surely something I will be remembering to encourage myself as well.ReplyCancel

  • Baylie Borman - I loved your wedding Kelli Jo! It was absolutely beautiful. You and your family put a lot of hard work into the wedding and it was was stunning. The antiques, hand painted signs and flowers were beautiful. I would love to have a wedding like yours someday! :) I’m so glad I got to see you on your wedding day. Congratulations to the both of you!ReplyCancel

{Motivation Monday} Do Fat Girls Make People Uncomfortable?

      This is such an interesting saying but honestly I think it might be true.  As a plus size bride, I can remember trying on dresses in front of straight size brides and feeling them look at me and knowing what they were thinking.  And knowing that they were uncomfortable around me but […]

  • Sandra Jones - Being Plus size is the new skinny. I love myself n I dress myself with confidence before I put on my clothes. BIG GURLS RULE AND ROCK HUNNTIES ……….GET A LIFE (for the ppl who dont like Plus size) WE ARE HERE TO STAY.ReplyCancel

  • Demandra - You know what people are thinking? With that kind of psychic ability, could you give us a few winning lotto numbers?

    Assumption almost always leads to negativity. Folks could be thinking–“dang, I want that lace on my dress, why didn’t the salesperson show me that?” Or perhaps, “oh! I wish I had her booty!” We do ourselves a great disservice when we assume that 1-people could give a hoot about how we look (people are mostly self-absorbed and therefore too preoccupied to worry about anyone else); and 2-that if they do, it’s negative.

    I really, really, really wish my fellow curvy girls would stop it with this kind of assumption and self-talk. If you’re going to go to fictional lands of make believe where you can psychically intuit what people are thinking, why make it negative? Why assume painful things? If you’re going to create narratives, make them fabulous. Life’s too short for manufactured hurt.ReplyCancel

  • Ali - I’m just dying to know where her beautiful gown is from! I didn’t see it listed?ReplyCancel

    • Shafonne Myers {Editor-in-Chief} - Hello Ali,

      So sorry it wasn’t listed. Some of our submissions come from photographers that don’t have all the dress information, so they just send over what they have. I can try reaching out to the photographer and seeing if she can find out for me. I’ll follow up and let you know if I find anything out. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. We appreciate it!ReplyCancel
