This woman has a newsflash for any woman that feels like their happily ever after will only present itself once they're as perfect as the airbrushed women in magazines.
Callie Thorpe, a London-based fashion and lifestyle blogger, recently posted some beautiful photos from her wedding day with an important message for women everywhere who feel less than perfect. She wants them to know that they're capable of finding love and looking gorgeous on their wedding day, regardless of their size.
"I never dreamed I would wear a dress like this," she captioned a photo of herself in her wedding dress. "I used to think that I would never get married until I was thin."
Thorpe is a fashion blogger who posts photographs of herself in various outfits all the time, yet she still felt insecure about her wedding day attire and admitted there were even times when she felt she'd be too self-conscious to actually wear her wedding dress on the day. But soon she realized it's OK to feel that way sometimes, because size isn't what makes someone beautiful.
"As you grow older and you surround yourself with the right people, you begin to realize that what you look like doesn't really matter to those that love you," she wrote. "Dan has loved me at all different sizes and on the day of the wedding when I walked into the room he turned and teared as I walked towards him, he looked at me like I was magic."
Thorpe hopes women understand that not being thin doesn't mean you can't find happiness.
"Do not feel you have to change yourself or your size to be happy on your wedding day, your partner loves you for who you are, not just what you look like."
