“I went into wedding dress shopping with a certain style and look in mind, but everyone kept telling me that you end up picking the complete opposite of what you have in mind. Of course I didn’t believe that because I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted and it looked beautiful in photos. As a shock to no one, those people were right and the dress I chose was the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted. I went into Brides by Young thinking I was going to come out with a flowy a-line dress. Being curvy, I don’t normally gravitate towards form fitting things so I figured flowy would be better. Boy was I wrong. The stylist brought out this beautiful Eddy K dress, but I still was not convinced seeing it on the hanger because the ballgown, tulle look was not something I wanted. However, I knew I would be doing myself a disservice if I did not at least try the dress on. As soon as I put it on, I was blown away. The dress made me feel so comfortable and beautiful, something I often struggle with as a plus size person. The dress instantly flattered my body type and truly made me feel like a bride. I ended up going to another bridal salon to look at more dresses, but just could not get the Eddy K dress out of my head and knew it was the one for me. The experience I had at Brides by Young was also phenomenal. The stylist helped me in and out of all the dresses and did a good job of selecting the perfect dresses to try on. They also specialize in curvy styles so at no point did I feel bad about myself because there was no such thing as too small of samples sizes at this salon.” – Lindsey
