6 months is plenty of time to find and order a BM dress. i know one designer – alfred sung i think, has maternity BM dresses in their collection, you could start there.  And in general, empire waist styles are good for pregnancy.  I had a BM get pregnant after she ordered her dress as well – luckily it was coincidentally an empire waist and she had ordered the bigger of two sizes that she fell in between, so when my wedding came and she was just starting to show and had gained weight, the dress fit perfectly.  Also, since she is your MOH, her being in a different dress is normal for MOHs, so i wouldn’t worry about everyone not wearing the same dress.

Check with a seamstress! She may be able to help you source a matching fabric and make a matching/similar dress in a style that works for a pregnant gal.

Two of my three bridesmaids are going to be 8 months pregnant. I had an idea they were trying or getting ready to try when we picked our date, and that actually played into our choice. Neither was pregnant at the time though, and honestly, didn’t expect them to get pregnant right away. The CRAZY part is they both are due the same date – May 16!!! I’m so glad we picked a date earlier than we were originally thinking. I’d way rather have a bridesmaid 35 weeks pregnant than 2 weeks post-partum 🙂

We are having dresses custom made with a seamstress.

My MOH was pregnant in my wedding too the wedding was in late June she had the baby the 1st week in September. She wore the same dress as the other girls just got a bigger size. There was a corset in the back so it helped but she looked great and felt comfortable. Maybe you could just have a corset put into the back of her current dress. =)

Aww, sorry to hear about the dress debacle…I can somewhat relate—-I have 3 ladies in my bridal party pregnant (all 3 happened between last spring-summer).  Lucky for us I think all the dresses will still fit as they are flowy.  My sister is furthest along (7 months on our wedding day) but she is my matron of honor so if she needs another dress, no biggie. 🙂

On the bright side, 🙂  I’m sure all the girls will still look beautiful in whatever dresses they wear, and you will have a fantastic day and bridal party!

Take a deep breath and relax! My wedding is before yours and I haven’t even chosen BM dresses yet so you have plenty of time!

Just have her pick a dress in the same color and material and you will be good to go! I’m sure DB has maternity dresses, but a seamstress should be able to tell you what dresses can and cannot be easily altered for a baby bump.  They’ll also know how big she should order the dress.  

No worries, my sis may or may not be prego at my wedding – at least you know now and can plan accordingly!

Congrats on being an aunt! 🙂

You can try looking for a bigger size of the same dress on ebay or weddingbee classifieds. I have also noticed that sometimes they discontinue a dress and then bring it back.

6 months of plenty of time for DB bridesmaids dresses, don’t worry. 🙂 Even my special order DB color (holly) came in about 3 months.

http://www.davidsbridal.com/Browse_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Shop-By-Color?&colorName=Horizon Looks like these are all the dresses that come in Horizon. I think a number of those could work. I was in a wedding where a bridesmaid was pregnant and we got the dresses from DB. At the store, they actually had a little “pregnancy pillow” to simulate how big a belly could be and try to stuff it under the dresses so the bridesmaid could picture how she’d look in the dress with the belly!
