Thats amazing news. At 6 months they will have theit head round looking after the baby. It may be weaning by that point so may need a high chair. I think all you need to do is support her. My bridesmaid is due 6 weeks before my wedding, lolz x

We ordered dresses in April for my September wedding. They came at the beginning of June. I think you can wait until 5 months before so you have a better idea of her size.

i ordered dresses in mid march for my mid september wedding and they arrived in late june. it kind of depends on the designer/store. most stores told me to order about 5-6 months in advance to allow enough time for alterations. but i ordered a bridesmaid dress from david’s bridal once and it arrived within a month.

I’d say go one size bigger than her normal size and get it taken in. Then she is under no pressure to loose weight x

We ordered our dresses online. LOVE the dresses and customer service is great!

My one bm is literally about to pop, so roughly same time line as yours. She picked her dress, but I don’t need to give them final measurements for the dresses until mid-October. She can still go shopping and everything with all of you… she probably won’t be able to try on the dresses, but she can order it and do measurements closer to the date.

Btw. Congrats to the new momma!

Could you choose something forgiving on the tummy like an empire wiast dress? Her bust is likely to grow a size or two esspecially if she breast feeds, but it’s easier to take a dress in than to take out. So if you order a size bigger than she was prepregnancy, you would probably be fine.

At 6 months old, babies are a brilliant age! Old enough to sit up and have a bit to eat, but not too old to be running round and getting caught under peoples feet. She might apprichiate you asking the venue if there’s a quiet small room she could use if her little one gets overstimulated. There’s often a room like that brides can use to sort their dress in. Good luck with planning!
