Wedding dress shopping can be one of the most fun (and emotional) experiences of the wedding planning process. But, when you’re setting out to plan where to shop with your bridal crew, sometimes it’s not readily apparent which bridal salons are size-inclusive—and which might not have what you’re looking for.
