The bride has been really laid back and has only requested for us to find black dresses that would look good with a pink ribbon. This is where I need help, I'm a size 16-18 and would love to find the perfect black dress that will work beyond just the wedding, every girl wants one of those! One issue, I hate thin straps, they only look good on those with slender frames therefore, I need your assistance. Please find me a great dress under $200.00 that both the bride and I will love. P.S. I live in Vancouver, BC if that changes your choices at all :)"
