So, I’m not sure what I should do at the moment! I recently had found out that I am pregnant. My problem is that my wedding is in June.. Doing the math, I’ll be pretty big by then.
I already have my dress and everything..
Should I risk losing all of my deposits to move my wedding up to February? Or do I look and feel uncomfortable on the biggest day of my life?
Anyone experienced this before?

I have not experienced it.. However… A good friend of mine at work went through this. She has deposits on a very expensive venue and had a large wedding planned. She decided not to be big for her day and moved her wedding up. She lost her deposits and had the wedding on a family farm. She did it for a third of the budget she had originally planned but honestly, her wedding was BEAUTIFUL!! I don’t know why she would ever pay for a venue in the first place. I mean her family farm was the perfect setting. She had her reception in a barn that they decorated so nicely… It’s your day. Decide what’s best for you. Explore options in case you decide to change your date. Good luck and CONGRATS X2!!!

I was 14 weeks pregnant at my wedding. But I didn’t really show till about 30 weeks so it really depends on your body. Why can’t you change your dress and not everything else ?

I was 16 weeks when I got married and wasn’t showing either.. so you never know by then.

I could, I just want to wear my dream dress and look and feel comfortable. I guess I’m most worried that his parents are paying for our photographer, and have already put down a deposit. (I’m assuming a large one). The venue and all else could easily be changed by us..

Some photographers won’t forfeit your deposit if you move your wedding to another date (obviously as long as it’s still with them!). Maybe worth asking? Especially as you’re still 6 months out, they’ll probably fill the date again before then.

Well, if you don’t want to lose the deposits (which may be more than the cost of the dress) and you really want to wear your dream dress, you could always find a different dres that you’ll be more comfortable in and then save the dream dress for a post-baby photo shoot…just an idea, since you already paid for a lot of stuff.

@jennabug: You could contact your photographer (and other vendors) and see if they’d be willing to move the date. June is wedding season and winter is usually slow, so I bet they will be open to it because they can book someone else for your original June date.
