Down That Aisle In Style!: A Wedding Guide For The Full-figured Woman

For many reasons the fashion industry has centered itself on the beauty of a minority of women — short and slender — but this is changing. Today women of all shapes and sizes are challenging the world to find them anything but beautiful, and with this confidence comes the desire to make their wedding day — that day of days — the most beautiful of all. Chamein Canton uses her unique mix of native New York sophistication and a touch of Southern charm (a gift from her mother) combined with her considerable experience in the wedding industry to address the needs of full figured brides around the world. The result is Down that Aisle in Style! – A Wedding Guide for Full Figured Women. Her book focuses on the resources, advice and encouragement (generously mixed with photographs of beautiful full figured women) that will help women around the world plan one of the most important days of their lives — their wedding day. Inspirational messages used throughout the book have been provided by the following plus size models: Joy Atkinson, BBB Women, Kathleen Bennett, Frances Brincat, Naiesha Brooks, Terreece Clarke, Jasmine Delgado, Valery Foley, Nelle Gilbert, Kelli Herbert, Hansi Holloway, Tonya Jeter, Shanda LaRue, Olga Ramos, Melissa Rios, Lynette Schultz, Stephanie Smith, and Melissa Stamper.
