My FSIL was 6 months pregnant on her wedding day and everyone joked about it, but it was ok. I think she was a little uncomfortable though, because the dress was a little tighter than she would’ve liked and she got tired out pretty quickly.

Personally, I would change the wedding date either to this summer or next summer. I would not want to be 8 months pregnant at my wedding, but if that’s what you want, then go for it!

Sparkidoodle:  I was 4 months pregnant when we got married.  It wasn’t a huge issue I wasn’t showing to much yet. The only thin that sucked was I didn’t get to “party it up” as my DH did.  And I was pretty exhausted but that is about it.

I got married when I was about 11 weeks pregnant, but we didn’t announce it until after the wedding. I was exhausted and I had to pee so much that I thought I would have to stop the ceremony to go to the bathroom! But I don’t regret it at all. DH and I are more traditional so I wouldn’t have felt comfortable being visibly pregnant at the wedding, and if I had been heavily pregnant we probably would have eloped. But I think it’s great that other brides feel comfortable rocking a baby bump!

What about moving the wedding up just a month or two? When I was 6-7 months pregnant it was the best I felt during the whole pregnancy. I had lots of energy and felt so amazing, and I think that’s when the baby bump is cutest.

Also, if you are planning to go on a honeymoon, it’s generally not advised to fly in the last month or two of pregnancy. I was so uncomfortable sitting on a plane during my whole pregnancy.

Sparkidoodle:  Yes actually am glad we got married when we did. No snarky comments. Uusually if someone went ahhhh thats why you are getting married. I would laugh and say no we got engaged way before I got pregnant… it wasn’t a huge deal

Sparkidoodle:  And congratulations! I think it’s great that you are so excited about this because most brides would be totally upset and freaking out!

Sparkidoodle:  aw congrats!! I agree that while an abortion is definitely always an option that women should feel free to employ when you feel it appropriate, and only you can make that call, this could be considered a blessing in disguise…  a baby with your life partner! I’d send out save the dates ASAP, tell people you’re still working on the ring, andget married in the 2nd trimester when things are supposed to be more pleasant for the mama. Good luck!!!
