Family owned and operated, Brides by Young (which is now the largest Plus Size Bridal Boutique in the world1) 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!
“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!” – Young, founder & designer
Brides by Young currently has two locations, one in Indianapolis, Indiana and one in Schaumburg, Illinois. Both locations have about 300-400 wedding dress styles to shop from!
