Findind a comfortable evening maternity dress that you could wear more than once is an achievement. I wouldn’t be offended by someone wearing that to my wedding, especially if they were pregnant. You feel fat in everything when you’re 8 months pregnant (I’m currently 9 months) and black is known to be flattering.

black and wedding has always been a strange line with me. If it is a black tie affair then it is totally acceptable. If it is a more casual wedding I would at the very least pair it with a super colorful bolaro or something to make it look less-funeral ish. I don’t know where you are but if may where you are is cool in any way I would start looking for bright and festive accessories and maybe a 1/2 length cardi?

Unless this is a very formal wedding,I think that dess is fine! And the ban on black isn’t observed by most people these days.

oliviaeatworld:  I think you’ll look fab! Just an idea, could you find a fun bold/colorful necklace to go with it that will make it pop?

A black maxi is a very elegant choice and being pregnant, I think it’s really important you feel comfortable too so I think you’ve made a good choice! And agreed, I don’t think the ‘no black’ applies anymore. I’ve worn black to non-black-tie weddings plenty of times and never felt out of place (and I was never the only one in black either!)

I mean, if you weren’t going to be so very pregnant, I’d say maybe find another color, but if it’s a dress you’re comfortable in 8 months pregnant, go for it.

Could you maybe do it up with some very colorful jewelry and shoes?  I mean, I get that you’ll likely want to wear flats, but maybe some bright flat sandals?

I’d say go with what you’re comfortable in. I might be concerned about the black if the wedding is during the day )which is more just personal preference), but I think black is definitely fine for an evening wedding. Honestly, I wouldn’t think twice about my fiance’s sisters coming to our wedding in black. I do like PPs ideas of colorful accessories to pop with the black!

Totally fine. Since it is spring, maybe add brightly colored jewelry (mint? coral?) to tone down the black.

I think its a great dress (I’m 9 months pregnant and comfortability is more important than looks at this point). Maybe get a bright colored shawl/jacket thing (the short sleeve ones-I don’t know what they are called exactly lol) and/or pair it with some bright jewelry like PPs suggested.

oliviaeatworld:  Love it! I think it will be flattering and functional. I really wouldn’t worry about wearing black. 

I think you should go with PP’s suggestions and wear some kind of colorful/springy accessory. I love clutches and any excuse to carry one is a good excuse for me and a wedding is perfect. Maybe you could find a cute springy colored clutch to carry? Peach or yellow or something like that?

I think it’s perfect, and I’ve worn black to almost every wedding I’ve been to.

oliviaeatworld:  I personally LOVE black. I love black clothing and especially a black gown. It looks very elegant to me.

We put our Best Lady in a black gown and it looked beautiful in my opinion. Seriously, some of these “old school” rules are just that – OLD.

By the way, you will be 8 months so really you can wear whatever you want. You need to be comfortable.
