Marisa’s Wedding Dress with Straps

posted in: Strut Brides | 1

Marisa went wedding dress shopping at Strut in Phoenix almost a year ago for her June 8, 2013 wedding. She was looking for a more modest wedding dress with straps.

With just five months before her wedding, Marisa needed a wedding dress from our ready to wear collection so she could buy it off the rack (whew! no worries about her wedding dress arriving late!). We love our collection of plus size wedding dresses with straps and small sleeves because they give coverage and support to our busty and/or modest brides. Some of our wedding dress straps are even detachable, if you just need coverage for a church ceremony.

We found Marisa the perfect plus size wedding dress with straps. It was a soft ivory in taffeta, a lightweight fabric for a hot Phoenix summer wedding, and was embellished with hand-beaded lace appliques. Her wedding gown also had a corset back and chapel train. When it was in our bridal store, it was one of our favorites because of the sparkly tulle "peakaboo" section in the skirt!

Marisa wrote us, "

Our photographer was Steve Nissle of Nissle Fine Art Photography. I'd also just like to say thank you for helping me find the "perfect" dress. There were so many dresses in the store in my size to try on and everyone made me feel so comfortable. Jill was great! She made the experience fun and memorable and made me feel comfortable and beautiful. And, Jill and the owner were able to sell me a sample dress so that I could afford the dress I wanted. I LOVE my dress (kind of wish I could wear it again!) and felt gorgeous on my wedding day. Thank you for providing so many beautiful options for the larger bride!

Marisa and Joseph were married at the Scottsdale First Church of the Nazarene, which featured a stunning ceiling. Her four bridesmaids wore lilac satin gowns with sage accents in the bouquets.

We love the charms on the bridal bouquet to honor loved ones who are no longer with you. And the sparkle pin accents on the ribbon add a nice touch, too!

This is our favorite photo of Marisa and her groom. We love how her wedding day pearl jewelry complemented the pearls on her wedding dress.
