It’s the 21st century and we’re doing things differently, and there are many couples who are doing things that in times past would be considered unconventional.
Progress is what progress is, and life as our grandparents knew it isn’t the same as what is was when they got married and had families. Today there are couples who’ve fallen pregnant during their wedding planning, which just means a little extra space to be made to make your wedding day as just as beautiful anyway!
One aspect which will need special attention now that three of you’ll be walking down the aisle is your wedding dress. At the best of times, most of us feel self-conscious about the way we look, so you’ll want to ensure that your wedding dress fits you at the stage of your pregnancy in relation to your wedding date.
A few tips to help with finding the perfect wedding dress if you’re pregnant;
Take time to do research
Call a few bridal boutiques to see if they can assist you with a dress while you are pregnant, bearing in mind your due date and the date of the wedding. This will save both you and the bridal boutique some time if they can’t assist you.
Making the most of your baby bump in your wedding dress
Some women don’t necessarily want their baby bumps to stand out on their big day, which is why it’s important to take your silhouette at that stage, as well as the style of the dress, into consideration when choosing your dress.
For those who wish to conceal their belly a bit, a strapless waist dress with some lace might be a great dress option for you. For those women who want their baby bump to be a part of their special day, you can go with a more figure hugging dress with a band just below your bust to make it more defined.
You’ll need to shop a little later than you’d otherwise have done
Many women naturally worry about whether their dress will fit them by the time their wedding day arrives. If you are pregnant, you’d be better served by shopping as late as possible before your wedding day, so that you know the dress will fit.
Layers and panels are designed to give you room to move and still look like a princess!
Comfort is everything when you’re pregnant and it’s for this very reason we recommend you keep your dress design simple if you know you’re going to walk down the aisle with a bump. Try to stick to soft, floating fabrics that will keep you comfy and not weigh you down.
These are just a few points to bear in mind when choosing a wedding dress while you’re pregnant. If you need help with your selection, be sure to contact the team at Ever After Bridal.
