Hunter McGrady pushing wedding industry to become more inclusive

Hunter McGrady is making it her mission to push the wedding industry to become more inclusive.

The Sports Illustrated model wed fiance Brian Keys in a beautiful ceremony held at Moorpark, California in front of guests including Hailee Steinfeld and Olympian Aly Raisman back in June.

However, during a recent feature for Good Morning America, Hunter shared that she struggled to find a wedding gown that suited her figure before discovering her stunning white lace Watters gown.

"Most of them were too small. They didn't actually carry the true plus-size stuff, so, you know, they are open in the back and things are hanging off," she sighed. "The changes I most want to see in wedding fashion is more variety."

In addition to calling for more size options in bridal, Hunter went on to explain that she wants to put a stop to the idea that brides need to lose weight or change their appearance for their big day.

"Remember that your fiance asked you to marry them as you are," the 26-year-old emphasised. "No one is looking at how thin you are or how curvy you are. People are looking at your love and that is so inspiring."

Elsewhere in the chat, Hunter also divulged that she first came across Brian on Snapchat. He followed her for about three months before asking her on a date while he was in New York.

"I said, 'Add me on Facebook first before - I don't know what you look like.' So, he added me and after a little sleuthing, we went to drinks on our first date... it was three days long," she recalled. "And it was just love at first sight and I knew he was going to be my husband."
