A Simply Be Wedding

As I’ve mentioned before, when I got married five years ago, I got the dress I wore from Simply Be. It wasn’t a wedding dress, but it sang to me – so it became the dress.

I struggled to find a dress – I didn’t want the common sleeveless white puffy gown. I wanted something a little bit different but for a plus size bride that was really really hard. My budget was tiny (£100 max) so I was really limited.  But Simply Be came good, and I managed to get my dress and jacket within budget.

Imagine my joy (and slight annoyance) when I noticed yesterday that Simply Be had launched its bridal range! Its small – only four dresses but those dresses are GORGEOUS! I would have loved to have this choice five years ago! All of the dresses are reasonable – between £90 and £100 and are different enough to stand out. Wonderful. Below are my two favourites:



Also, even though this isn’t in the bridal range, if you wanted a more 50’s-esq shorted dress, this one by Joanna Hope would look beautiful:

Well done Simply Be, once again you are doing what no other plus size retailer is doing and actually giving us what we want and what we need.

  1. How lucky for the current generation of brides, to have more choices than we did! I particularly like the short dress above – I’d buy it even though I’m more “mother of the bride” now, and less “bride”.
    Ps you were a stunning bride, I love the playful humour that shows through in the photos!

  2. Aww your wedding pics are adorbs. Long hair! In two days is our wedding anniversary, and I wish this rang came sooner. The Joanne dress is perfect!

  3. I love your wedding pics you looked lovely! I really like the wedding dresses in the collection I had a small budget for my dress £60 but I managed to find something me. I’m glad simply be are doing a bridal range as I think it will help a lot of ladies to find a great dress xx
