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!

“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

Founder, Young, has combined her 13+ years of bridal experience and 25+ years of manufacturing expertise to create her own line specifically with you in mind. This private plus size wedding dress collection comes directly from top manufacturers, bringing you high quality for a fraction of the traditional cost. Young’s daughter, Anne-Marie, who has ~10 years of bridal experience herself works closely with Young to add a “fresh” perspective –  they are very excited for this next bridal adventure together!

In addition to our private collection, we carry Pronovias Bridal, Watter’s WTOO Curve Plus Collection, Essence of Australia, Stella York, and Bonny Bridal’s Unforgettable Collection! Brides by Young Indianapolis offers 200+ styles of plus size wedding gowns in various sizes.


 Our first specialized, plus size bridal salon is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The second location is opening in Schaumburg, Illinois in early February! We can’t wait to meet all of our brides!
