If you’re looking for plus size dresses to wear to a wedding, we’ve got you!
We’ve shared some attire guides in past posts with plus size dresses included, but sometimes you just want the best plus size wedding guest dresses all in one place.
It is surprising how many stores don’t offer 1X to 3X sizing. It shouldn’t be tough to find figure-flattering outfits to wear to a wedding, so we did all the digging for you! You’re going to look so good in any of these!
Leslie inspired us with this post when she recently sent in this Ask Emmaline question. She is looking for a plus size dress to wear to a wedding this fall and can’t seem to find what she wants. She writes,
“Emmaline, I’m going to a wedding this fall and need a dress to wear. I’m plus size and having a hard time finding a pretty dress that is not expensive but also looks nice on. Do you have any suggestions for plus size fall wedding guest dresses? I’d love something long, like a maxi dress, but I’m not picky. Thank you so much!”
Great question, Leslie! I hope we are able to help you find the best dress to wear to the wedding this fall. We did some digging to find pretty cuts, silhouettes, and lengths that will work perfectly for fall and, frankly, any season of the year. In this list, you’ll find plus size guest dresses for weddings in all lengths, colors, shapes, sizes, necklines, and silhouettes. I hope one of these dresses works perfectly and you’ll be excited to wear it as a dress this season.
On to the list!
