As if planning a wedding as a bride-to-be wasn’t exciting enough, being a mum-to-be adds an extra bundle of joy to marrying the love of your life!
Beginning life together as newlyweds as well as starting a family is surely something to celebrate so finding the perfect wedding dress is of utmost importance. Although it may seem tricky buying a wedding dress ahead of time, it’s not impossible to find a beautiful maternity wedding dress. Some brides-to-be picture unflattering gowns for pregnant brides but rest assured that you will be able to find the perfect maternity wedding dress that you fall head over heels in.
Choosing the right silhouette is key to concealing or flaunting your bump.
The empire waist style is perfect for highlighting the smallest part of your torso. Pair it with a soft fabric that drapes beautifully across your bump that falls from the empire line to the floor. A lace, tulle or chiffon overlay is a great way to add a whimsical touch with its lightness.
For a little vintage or boho glamour, choose a floral lace that drapes softly over your curves and bump, with a flattering A-line cut and empire-line bodice. A crossover v-neck cut helps to elongate your neckline and showcases your cleavage, as well as balance out your almost-round figure. Three-quarter length sleeves and lace cap sleeves are great if you aren’t too keen on showing your upper arms. Finish off with a silk satin sash to give a tailored feel no matter what stage of your pregnancy.
If you don’t want a skirt that falls straight to the floor, a shorter hemline is not only on-trend but ideal for showing off a great pair of shoes. Go for lengths slightly above-the-knee or below-the-knee. It’s the perfect opportunity to display scalloped lace edges on the hem.
Keeping comfortable and glamorous at the same time is possible by opting for breathable fabrics with stretch. Soft fabrics like silk, chiffon and tulle are great for heavily pregnant brides as they provide more comfort and flow over the bump. Lace or lace applique are great for brides in the earlier stages of pregnancy as the pattern distracts from the bump.
There’s a ton of stylish maternity wedding dresses out there to choose from. To find the dress of your dreams that can also accommodate your growing bump, be sure to seek out bridal companies that have an array of sizes available.
