I have played tennis for almost 3 decades and have tried out dozens of tennis racquets over those years.

Choosing a tennis racquet can be a daunting task as there are all sorts of features to consider - head size, grip size, string tension, power, control, and your playing ability.
Beginner tennis players are advised to go with an oversized head and a string tension that is "tighter" than "looser". With a tighter string tension you will get more control and with the wide body racquets you should still have enough power to get the ball over the net.

The thicker the frame, the more power you will get as well. For beginners, it's always been a fine balance between lack of control and too much power.

Just remember that keeping the ball in play is the key to winning, unless you are talented enough to hit clean winners from the baseline. Pros use racquets that weigh a little more than what the average weekend warrior uses simply because they can use the added weight to generate more power on their strokes. Stick with the most control you can get when first starting to play.
