Christine O’s Mermaid Wedding Dress

posted in: Strut Brides | 1

We love getting photos back from our Strut Brides’ weddings because we seldom see curvy and plus size brides well-represented in mainstream media. But what makes us even happier is seeing this gorgeous girl ROCK her fitted mermaid wedding dress–proof that curvy girls CAN wear this sexy silhouette! In one of our favorite photos ever, we present Christine!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me find the perfect dress for my wedding day! I can not say thank you enough! Strut is a god send! My husband and I got married 2/23/13 at Pinnacle Vista Villa in north Phoenix. It was a 1940’s/ 50’s theme. Colors were black white and red.

My dress as you know was big when I picked it up because I had lost weight. I had alterations done at A Stitch in Time in Tempe, and she took it in, added a more durable zipper, and added a bustle. I also lost some more weight out of stress a coupple weeks before so it was a little big on the day of but it was still perfect to me.

Here’s some proof for some of the brides who are worried about getting their boogie on in a mermaid! You can! I’m glad i had a little wiggle room because it made it comfortable to sit in, even though I barley sat the whole day haha. I made all the centerpieces, boquets, and boutineres.

My photogrpaher is Danielle Daigle. If you post these on the blog please giver her photo credit. You can post them if you would like!  Please don’t stop what you are doing, strut is an amazing place, and I am so happy I found it!!! I’ll be back if i need a bridesmaids dress or special ocasion dress. Once again THANK YOU!
