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 ~15 years of bridal experience and 25+ years of manufacturing expertise to create the concept of Brides by Young. Initially founded as a “plus-size” bridal boutique, the reputation of Brides by Young grew to where our stylists heard many requests from brides to increase our range of sizes offered. Understanding that ALL body shapes could benefit from the Brides by Young touch, Young decided to cater to brides from “Petite to Plus”!

In addition to the amazing designers that are carried, Young used her experience and bridal connections to create her own line specifically with you in mind. The line is a private wedding dress collection that comes directly from top manufacturers, bringing you high quality for a fraction of the traditional cost – it focuses specifically on silhouettes for curvy figures, as well as capsule petite size designs. 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, Essense of Australia, Stella York, and Bonny Bridal’s Unforgettable Collection! Brides by Young offers hundreds styles of plus size wedding gowns in various sizes.

 Brides by Young currently has 2 locations – our flagship store in Indianapolis, Indiana and our store in Schaumburg, Illinois! We can’t wait to meet all of our brides!
