You might not want to look better than the bride, but that’s no reason not to shine brightly!
I came across a bunch of beautiful plus sized dresses, and thought these would be perfect for mother of the bride or wedding guests for beach themed weddings. The beach-specific ones are the first blue dress and the second and third options. The final two are more the type of dress I’d expect to see on a guest (or MOTB) for a indoor wedding.
Don’t forget to note how important accessories are with these dresses! You can always hop over to RINGOBLOG.COM to look at what rings I’m recommending these days.

Plus size women can wear designer wedding dresses that look great. Here are four examples.Designer Wedding Dresses for Plus Size Women
This firs tone might not be as appealing as you hope if you have a larger bust, so be careful. The lace is a great touch, though.
Instead of covering up your large breasts, why not flaunt them with a scalloped v-neck? We also love the high-low style of the hemline.
This is a perfectly romantic dress.
If you want a little bit of lace, but without losing the glam factor… try this!

You can absolutely get plus size designer dresses. Here are four I like.
When it comes to plus size designer dresses that have a topical feel that you can wear as a guest to a beach wedding, this is the perfect vibrant dress. You can wear flats with this dress, but pearl pearl jewelry is perfect so don’t opt for anything else! I love the purple straps and the waistline, it really pulls the dress together. It’s like tropical watercolor come to life.
If you like dark gothic fashion, you’ll probably love this one right away. This pinterest plus size fashion piece reminds me of hippies, but haute couture hippies! But I like it, anyway. The top details are great. And accessorizing with a bold black cuff is really fun. The sleek hair and the bold pink lips also work well.
This bright yellow dress will nip you in at the smallest part of your waist and give you a great f ... Read More
I am so excited to tell you guys about this Birds Button Dress I got. The brand is Tulle, and it’s found at TellStyle.com.
Description: This is one of our most flattering dresses. Perfect for any season and adorably featuring our favorite bird print. Pair this piece with hot pink or yellow to make a statement. In the colder months, throw a blazer over it.
I think it works great when you put a belt on with it. The material for this casual daytime dress feels so silky, as it’s an outer sheer layer and then an inner silky lining. And the cute button details make it feel very sweet. This is definitely a dress that Zooey Deschanel would wear.
Tell Style styled it with the Skinny Tassel Belt-Lazer in Blue, which I really like. I’d pass on the scarf and the platform pumps they used, going for some casual flats and some simple earrings.

Here are two fool-proof outfit ideas for spring 2012. Just try not to go overboard on buying great Butter nail polishes (because it can happen, and it’s…well, no, it’s not tragic at all, actually. They are AMAZING.)
This first outfit utilizes a long printed maxi dress that you probably already own from last summer. Then you take a cropped jacket, and pile on a large gold statement necklace for the entire downtown-city-boho-chic look! And I included a Butter nail polish in this fabulous dark turquoise because I love Butter nail polish colors. TV characters that might wear this include: Emily Fields from Pretty Little Liars when dressing up for a date (see: How to dress like Emily Fields), Alex from Happy Endings (see: How to dress like Alex Happy Endings Fashion) or Cece from New Girl (Cece New Girl fashion.)

You know your Pretty Little Liars always love to dress up for a great dance. Let’s look at what we’d put them in, using selections from promgirl.net.
The reason why we’re focusing on prom dresses from that site is because we now know how great they are. We had a chance to review this cocktail dress by Clarisse. It comes in white, light pink (coral), or blue. We choose the pink, as it’s perfect for a short, Spring dress. It’s a sale dress, and they have a price match guarantee – which is so nice. It’s such a nice dress because there’s a bit of texture without there being any print. Which means you can pair this with bold accessories. Silhouette wise, this is short and body-conscious. Luckily, there’s a nice lining for the pretty pink dress. The rhinestone pin is removable, so you can use it or not. The dress arrived right on time (fast!), and packaged in plastic and on a hanger. All in all, we are very pleased with our interaction with promgirl.net and would order a dress there again. Their swiftness of service really can’t be beat. And, as we’ve pro ... Read More
Kate Middleton aka Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge recently visited schools in Cambridge for her role as Patron of The Art Room. Here she’s leaving The Art Room’s classroom at Oxford Spires Academy School on February 21, 2012 in Oxford, England.
The brown dress she wore was by Orla Kiely. This label has plenty of items perfectly suited for her style, that she either has worn or may wear in the future. If you want to get Kate Middleton style, then shopping here will help you achieve her look even without copying the exact dresses. (Which is great, because then people won’t have seen the dress on Kate, and think you’re a true style genuis!)
