So you’re pregnant

Expecting? ‐ don’t worry. You can still find the perfect wedding dress

Showing it off!

Wearing a badge declaring, “I’m not fat, I’m pregnant”, as one recent pregnant bride did, may not appeal to everyone, but if you want to show off your bump, it may be worth talking over a style with an individual designer. Stretchy, jersey‐type material is already proving popular with some American brides and mums‐to‐be.

Many women who find they are pregnant after planning their wedding opt to postpone it until after the baby is born. But, as most mothers will testify, looking after a small baby is a lot more tiring than being pregnant – really! So think carefully before you decide and make sure you have people on hand to help you with the baby if necessary.

Many women opt to wait for the wedding until the baby is a little older and has stopped breastfeeding. Also, unless you’re Posh Spice, you won’t have a washboard stomach a few months after giving birth, so if you’re thinking of getting married after you’ve just had a baby it’s wise to avoid any tummy‐hugging styles unless you want to spend an awfully long time in the gym beforehand.
