About Us

Family owned and operated, Brides by Young was born from the idea that every woman, regardless of her shape or size, should experience the joys of finding her dream dress. The inspiration came to Young from one of her very own brides who told her that she wished she could have tried on at least 10 wedding dress styles - not too demanding of a wish!

After this seed was planted in Young's mind, she knew that she would one day open Brides by Young to change the status quo of wedding dress shopping. 


Young has combined over 15 years of bridal management and 25 years of manufacturing expertise to create Brides by Young  - the largest plus size bridal salon in the world! The two locations (Indianapolis & Schaumburg) each boast over 350 wedding dress styles. This is what makes Young's vision for Brides by Young unique, our commitment to invest our energies to select the most beautiful collection of gowns in a range of sample sizes from 12-34.

At Brides by Young you will find world-famous designer names such as Pronovias, Essense of Australia, Studio Levana, Stella York, Bonny Bridal, White One, Demitrios, Ashley & Justin, Eddy K, Blush by Hayley Paige, and many more!

In addition to the amazing designers that we carry, Young also created her own bridal styles inspired by the ideas of our own customers, which has become our exclusive Brides by Young collection! - designed specifically for the curvy bride. The private collection is personally taken from concept to reality by Young, including the selection of fabrics, patterns, colors, and construction. The Brides by Young collection offers high quality gowns inspired by you with the flexibility for custom sizing so that any of our brides not only feel beautiful, but comfortable.

We can't wait to be a part of your wedding and thank you for being a #BridesbyYoungRealBride!

Our mission is not to simply have women “fit” into gowns, we are offering a large selection of styles to choose from. We are offering bridal fashion for every woman! A woman’s bridal experience should not be limited by her wedding gown size… Every bride should feel beautiful for her wedding. There’s no settling when it comes to looking perfect on that special day!
