Pssssst, wedding dress industry! Did you know the average American woman wears a size 14? I'm not sure if y'all got the memo, since most designers showcase wedding dresses on models who are size invisible.

Of course there are wedding-y brands and stores that carry bigger sizes (Alfred Angelo, David's Bridal, and Watters, off the top of my head) but why aren't more people jumping through hoops to attract plus-size customers? I mean EVERY bride needs a wedding dress (or wedding suit or romper or whatever) so why not try to sell a bride who much of the industry is ignoring?

I'll step off my soapbox now and introduce you to a retailer that is: Sonsi has an online Bridal Boutique that sells plus-size wedding dresses—AND showcases the dresses on models with curves. Here are three of my faves from the boutique:

Wedding Dress 3

Netting V-neck Wedding Gown, $259.

I'm not crazy about the belt-y part on No. 3, but since the dress is just $259, you could buy a fantastic sash to tie over it.

I like wedding dress # 2.  Like the lace overlay.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.

    Cool wedding beauty ideas

    It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
