All too often the wedding industry tends to have a very specific view of perfection which is not most people's reality. I've heard so many brides talk of feeling inadequate and down right uncomfortable when it comes to wedding dress shopping. This is for a whole host of reasons but the one that seems to come up the most is their weight. Along with rarely seeing Black or Asian models in wedding magazines it is also rare to see someone who isn't a size 6-8, let alone plus size. That's why I am so pleased to see the launch of the UK's first wedding show exclusively for brides with curves.
The Loving Your Curves Wedding Show is organised by Kemi Boutique who I first featured on BelleNoirBride last year when she shared her expert advice on plus size wedding dress shopping.
There'll dresses for you to try and buy, workshops with experts on hand to give you perfect planning advice, a beauty lounge and much much more. All of this takes place on 21st and 22nd September 2013 at Battersea Arts Centre, from 11am-6pm.
