One of my bridesmaids found out she’s pregnant and should be due around the time of my wedding. Hopefully it’ll be before but how should i got about getting her a dress if we don’t know if she’ll be pregnant still or not. My mom wants me to take her out of the wedding but she’s one of my best friends from high school and I just dont want to do that. Has anyone been in this situation?????

I think you should defer to her. Tell her that she is your best friend and that you want her up there, ask if she still wants the responsibility and if she does, then tell her you are at a loss for what to do about the dress- come up with a solution together

I agree in talking to her and NOT listening to your mom.

Ya i think that would be a good idea. I was def not going to listen to mom lol. I think i’ll wait awhile before I talk since she’s still emotional and in shock about finding out.

Doesn’t bother me if my any of my bridesmaids is pregnant at my wedding. I would be fine with it. And oh well if she gives birth the same day, she won’t be there. These are just things that happen and you have no control of. I would be okay with it. Don’t stress about it. Youll figure out the dress part, I’m sure bridal consultants would know how to handle.

Ya and we was also thinking about those multi twist wrap dresses so they would be able to change them up and wear later after the wedding. I think she would be fine pregnant or not wearing one of those type dresses cause they are flowing and we could wrap it to fit.
I just get upset and hate hearing my mom over and over saying its not gonna work and we should drop her out.

I’m in the exact same position! I talked to my bridesmaid and we’re going to wait until her first dr. appointment where they can determine her due date. Then we can figure out if it’s going to be possible for her to be in the wedding. You have to figure if her due date is within 2 weeks either way it’s not likely she can make it (just being realistic). – believe me I know it sucks trying to figure out what to do

An empire waist would fit fine, pregnant or not. I imagine her bust would be the same size right before and right after she has the baby, so the problem would be figuring out how big her breasts will get during the pregnancy to find the right size to fit her top.

My close friend’s sister was pregnant before my friends wedding and she actually gave birth less than a week bEfore the wedding but still managed to preform all her Maid/Matron of Honor duties etc. I think it really depends if it is her first or not…if it is I would replace her as she will be busy discovering and figuring out what the hell to do. If not I think it’s safe to keep her as long as she has a babysitter at the wedding so she can feed if needed

one of my BMs got pregnant right after we ordered the dresses. but luckily she had picked an empire waist and it was totally fine. i would overestimate the size though. its easier to take in than to let out. some designers also make dresses for pregnant BMs. Alfred Sung does for sure as i remember seeing them in their catalogue when i went with my BMs to try on dresses.
