10 Plus Sized Gowns for Spring Brides
The new line of plus sized gowns from Stella York has something for every bride.
Spring is here, the most romantic time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than by coming in and trying on a wedding gown? When we think of spring gowns, we imagine lace and tulle, flowing silhouettes and romantic details. We also think about dresses that can work with the weather: long sleeves, or sleek styles that could be paired with a jacket, bolero, or cape.
Below are our selection of spring gowns, all of which we carry at our store in plus-sized wedding dress samples. Book an appointment with us, and our TWD-ettes will be happy to help you try on gowns and give you styling tips for how to handle unpredictable spring weather!
1. Halona: a voluminous gown with a hint of corsetry boning.
Yas queen! If you want to feel regal on your wedding day, this gown will have you holding your head high. From the subtle boning in the bodice to the optional long sleeves, it’s hard to pick one favorite detail in this dress. It’s the ideal gown for brides who want to combine romance and drama as they walk down the aisle.
2. Luella: a slinky gown with a deep plunge neckline.
This dress is a study in how to make a statement with minimalism. The clean lines of the skirt compliment the thin straps, while the dimensional lace of the bodice adds just enough detail to make the gown feel special. Finished off with a daring plunge neckline, this gown is sure to turn heads on your big day. Give this look an edge by pairing it with a tailored jacket, or keep it romantic with a lace bolero.
3. Carmel: a glamorous mermaid gown with an off-the-shoulder silhouette.
We love the glamour of this gown, from the off the shoulder neckline to the cascading train. The mermaid silhouette flatters every curve, making this a show-stopping number for brides of all body types! Worried about a sudden spring chill? We think this gown would pair especially well with a cape.
4. Marcie: a flowing A-line dress with romantic lace.
If delicate and dreamy is your ideal dress, Marcie is the gown for you. The organic vine pattern of the lace gives this dress a boho vibe, while the option for a Moscato-colored under gown is perfect for brides who want a hint of color.
5. Arwyn: elegance and grace in this flowing A-line gown.
Arwyn is demure at first glance, but the subtle plunge at the neckline is just the kind of flirty detail we love in a dress. Combined with the long sleeves and the illusion lace that extends to the back, and we think this dress will be one of the most sought after gowns of the season.
6. Iris: an utterly romantic gown with an illusion lace back.
From the sweetheart neckline to the illusion lace on the back, it’s hard to find a more romantic dress than Iris. Named after one of our favorite spring flowers, this dress would be the perfect choice for a garden wedding late April or May, and paired with a lace shawl it could easily handle a sudden change in the weather.
7. Liv: sleek and structured for modern minimalist brides.
The simplicity of this dress is deceiving. Look closer, and you’ll notice it has all the right details: subtle pleats at the waist, a scooping neckline at the back, a row of covered buttons running all the way to the hem, and pockets! Liv is a timeless gown for brides who want a dress to pass on to her daughters someday.
8. Eugenie: tiers of tulle for a floating ballgown silhouette.
We love how the structured Mikado bodice pairs with the floating layers of tulle in this gown for a silhouette that is modern yet minimalist at the same time. The low V neckline shows off just the right amount of décolletage and is echoed by the low side panels. We carry a plus-sized version of this gown in our store.
9. Paris: chic and classic for understated style.
If you’re looking for a refined gown with sophisticated details, let us introduce you to Paris. From the subtly curved V neckline to the elegantly flaring trumpet silhouette, this dress is a true classic. Pair with a fitted jacket or short cape to guard against chilly days in early spring. We carry this gown in a plus-sized sample for all the brides who want to try it on.
10. Mallorie: satin and lace for a traditional yet romantic ballgown.
Finally, we love the graceful volume to Mallorie’s skirt, giving this traditional silhouette a romantic edge with a lace bodice and combining a narrow plunge with a sweetheart neckline. A lacy shawl to keep your shoulders warm would go perfectly with the old-fashioned style of this gown. Mallorie is shown here on two of our gorgeous real brides!
