Passionate about diversity and inclusion, she developed The Sample Size Solution – a portable product designed to help make sample dresses fit the bride – which has been applauded for its practicality and helping to address body size stigmatization. After years of being urged to share her wedding styling knowledge with the world, Julie wrote her book, Dressed, Styled and Down the Aisle which has been hailed as a “must-read manifesto” by insiders. To follow The Stylish Bride, log on to https://thestylishbride.com/ or follow her @thestylishbride on all social media channels.
