Shortly before her August wedding, Vail realtor Yvonne Dodds had a nightmare: the ceremony was the next day, and she still hadn’t found a bridal gown that fit or flattered her size-20 body.
The nightmare almost came true. For months, Yvonne haunted bridal shops, department stores and catalogs. The dresses she tried on were ill-fitting and dowdy. The nicest gowns were simply not available in her size. And the wedding was less than two months away.
Just in time, Yvonne went online and found us.
Yvonne chose an embroidered slip dress in candlelight linen, topped with a matching bolero jacket for the reception. After receiving the gown via priority mail, Yvonne took it to a local tailor for custom fitting, just like smaller-size brides. The result: a perfect fit for the most important day of her life.
“I felt absolutely fabulous and can’t count the compliments from wedding guests about my gorgeous dress,” she recalls. “One of my thin friends who is getting married later this year said she wants a linen dress and jacket just like mine.”
