Absolutely not!!  You should be so happy for them.  Bumps are so cute!!  And being pregnant doesn’t change their feelings or friendship with you.  Plus, since they’re all doing the "kid" thing first, you’re got plenty of role models!!

Not at all!  They’re your nearest and dearest, who cares if they’re pregnant on your wedding day?

My MOH was a VERY pregnant 6-months at my wedding, and she looked adorable.  She’s all sassy with her big belly…..I actually think it makes the day even that much more special b/c you and your BMs are going thru life changing events at the same time.  Think of all the cute photo opps you’re going to have!

One of mine might be – she’s planning on starting a family sometime in the not-too-distant future. I’ll have to figure out the dress situation, but other than that I think it’s great!

nope…my sis is going to be 8.76 mos pregnant (and not a new mom, I hope).    Do be aware, though, that their pregnancy may place limits on their ability to travel, stand during the ceremony, or generally help out around the wedding time.  My sis and I talked aobut it a while ago…honestly she’s way more upset about not being able to do as much than I am.  I’m just so excited to meet my new nephew (after the wedding of course).

Not at all! Just make sure you find dresses that are appropriate for the growing bump—don’t want the dress to start rising higher and higher because the bump gets bigger and bigger 😉 Get what I’m sayin’? I thought this link was pretty great for someone considering a pregnant BM and what dresses to consider. Depending on how far along each of them will be, you’ll probably want to go with a dress that looks good no matter where they are in the pregnancy or go with different dresses all together but in the same color. Again, depending on how far along they are, flats instead of heels may be a better option. Another idea I think to consider, letting the bridal party sit in the front row (which I’ve seen before) depending on how long your ceremony is. If it’s only 15-20 minutes or so I think they’d be fine, but if you are having a long one in a church or something that is another story. I also think it’ll look pretty cute with the ladies up there! You could take some cute photos that I’m sure the photographer can do a great job with.

Oh and one more place, check out this link too!  Hope this helps!

Nope – 2 of my 3 bridesmaids were pregnant.  Who cares!  I loved it and thought it was super cute.

Definitely not! My mum has pics of her when she was 7 months pregnant with me at my uncle’s wedding…she used to say "See, you were at Uncle & Auntie’s wedding too!" – pregnant women are beautiful!
