That’s a gorgeous dress. You can most likely get away with a non maternity empire waist dress though and save some money! Even if it needed a small alteration, your price tag would probably still come in under mat clothes. I hate the markup and lack of options so I found regular tops that worked with a belly and wore those instead of maternity tops all the way until I delivered.

What about Rent The Runway? They have several dresses/gowns that are bump friendly (they even have a search option for bump friendly dresses). Also, Asos.com has some pretty dressier dresses. They have a couple longer dresses and some lace options that look really pretty and the prices are pretty reasonable with free shipping and returns. Good luck!! I’m very happy to not have any weddings this fall/winter! 🙂

ive been looking at normal dresses with empire waist. theres nothing ive found in maternity dresses that i really love – theres so much less choice, and all for a higher cost!!

This is definitely something worth checking a maternity consignment store for. I bought this fantastic and totally cute maternity cocktail dress at a consignment shop for like $25. You can get some really great stuff and save a lot of money that way, since most people don’t exactly wear formal maternity wear on the regular …
