Today, we’re talking about where to get custom made wedding dresses in plus size! For the last few years, I’ve been sharing plus size wedding guides, tips and resources (from where to get a
unique plus size wedding dress to where to get plus size bridesmaid dresses, etc).
And todayyyyy I’m going to talk about where to shop for a custom made wedding dress in plus size.
Full disclosure: This blog post was inspired by a chat I had with my plus size fashion friend, Hannah, of Hannah Caroline Couture who is #1 on this list! I shared additional resources as well, because I want plus size babes to know about multiple options when it comes to getting a custom wedding gown!
Custom Made Wedding Dresses in Plus Size
When it comes to shopping for custom made wedding dresses in plus size, I am biased to working with a designer or brand *in person*! There are brands who make custom made wedding dresses in plus size, who simply take your measurements and send you a dress.
In my years of experience in fashion, you’re still going to need to get a dress altered to fit you well, so you may as well work with a custom plus size wedding dress designer who works with you in person.
Alrighty, let’s begin the round up!
If you’ve been hanging out with me for a minute, then you know I am a HUGE fan of Hannah Caroline Couture. I creative directed and modeled in this shoot for the brand
The designer (Hannah) makes all of her c
ustom made plus size wedding dresses in plus size in her studio in NEBRASKA! (I know, right?! Who would’ve thought NEBRASKA would have such a fab brand?!).
Hannah Caroline Couture is my fave for a multitude of reasons, including her fab designs. And what really sets her apart is that she works with people of all sizes (yes, all) and genders.
Hannah can make your dream custom made wedding dress in plus size – 100% from scratch, or you can choose a style on her website and customize an
existing wedding gown design.

“This simply elegant mermaid was constructed using our Soft White tulle stackup and to add some dimension there were two types of lace incorporated. The inner layer of lace is our swiss dot Flurry and fashioned on top is one of our floral appliques, Louisa. You can really see the swiss dot pop in Kaylee’s unlined back bodice which also features vintage styled pearl buttons.”
“Michaela looked radiant in her Champagne colored A-line wedding dress that was covered head to toe with one of our favorite 3D floral laces. The straps of her plunging neckline were created using our Barely There illusion mesh. The dress was so beautifully created and exactly as the bride envisioned. “
“Adding a touch of texture to her A-line silhouette, Cara chose to incorporate one of our 3D flower laces along the v-neck bodice and trickling into the skirt. Our Soft White tulle was used throughout the entire dress including her unlined lace straps.”
“Ginger’s structured ball gown was inspired by a classic vintage style wedding dress. The box pleated skirt was draped in our Silk Cotton Faille. She chose our Soft White tulle for sweetheart bodice and unlined off the shoulder sleeves.To add some sparkle beneath her Lydia lace, Ginger chose not only a layer of our Gold Dust sparkle tulle but also adding our Snazzy Jazzy beading arrangement on top.” More Helpful Plus Size Wedding Roundups!
