Buttons are a small bridal detail, but they certainly can make an impact! Besides being a functional enclosure, they can really add a unique and stylish touch to your plus-size wedding gown.

If you're looking for unique ways to embellish with buttons, here are six creative ideas to get you inspired.

Buttons Down the Back

Wearing a cascade of buttons down the back of a dress is a popular way to turn heads down the aisle- and it never gets old! It's also a beautiful way to showcase your curves in a form-fitting mermaid gown or other tight style.

These buttons can start from the top of your gown and trail all the way down to the end of the train, creating a stunning visual effect. Whether you opt for delicate pearl buttons or ornate crystal ones, a button-up back is both sexy and timeless.

Beautiful Buttoned Bodice

Instead of a traditional zipper or lace-up bodice, consider incorporating buttons into the front of your dress. This unique twist adds a touch of vintage charm and can be a focal point on a simple and sleek gown.

Wear Buttons on Your Sleeves

Romantic and a nice, minimal way to embellish without going overboard, you could consider adorning the sleeves of your gown with buttons. 

Whether you choose full-length sleeves or cap sleeves, buttoned cuffs can create a whimsical and delicate look. To enhance this effect, opt for buttons that match the dress's fabric or design.

All Aboard the Buttoned Train

For a subtle yet distinctive touch, consider adding decorative buttons along the train of your plus-size wedding dress. These buttons can be purely ornamental or functional, helping you bustle your train for ease of movement during the reception.

Button Embellished Veil

Extend the button theme to your veil by attaching buttons along the edge. This unique accessory adds cohesiveness to your overall look and can become a beautiful heirloom piece.

Practical Ways to Use Buttons 

If you want your wedding dress to be both stunning and practical, consider incorporating discreet pockets fastened with buttons. Not only do pockets add an unexpected twist to your gown's design, but you can carry your essentials with you throughout the day, such as tissues, makeup, or a cell phone.
