Behind-the-Scenes 2018 Plus-Size Bridal Photo Shoot

Our 2018 Bridal was styled and photographed over a three day photo shoot in downtown St. Louis with our glam-squad of MUA, hairstylists, photographers, and social media team. We welcomed back #healthyatanysize advocate and plus-size model Melinda Parrish along with stunning 5'11" model Alexandra Gregorek from Dorothy Combs Models

We styled Melinda and Alex with elegant accessories, beautiful bridal details, and fabulous wedding day accessories to capture our new plus-size wedding dresses. Our bridal photoshoot captured several bridal themes, including some ultra-modern outdoor images and gorgeous dress images for our online retail website and Michelle Bridal

At the end of our third day of shooting, we headed over to Bailey's Range for some fabulously free-range burgers, shakes and sundaes, which was a well-deserved treat for our hardworking models. We even captured some editorial photos to use for 2018 plus-size bridal styles that are exclusively designed in plus-sizes (which means less money spent on wedding dress alterations!). Look how happy ice cream makes Alex!

Our team worked flawlessly together for this photoshoot, and we're excited to share EVEN MORE behind-the-scenes looks with you later this month, following our Las Vegas photoshoot capturing our soon-to-be-released plus-size prom and formal dresses.
