Maybe looking at some ‘destination’ styled dresses. They’re usually very loose, flowy and beautiful.
Let me do some reasearching…

First off, congratulations!! that’s wonderful

Second, this is the opinion of someone who has not been pregnant, but did have lengthy discussions with her v. pregnant Maid/Matron of Honor about dress shape.  Basically, my moh/sister’s feeling is that very free form empire waist dresses aren’t that flattering b/c they just poof out instead of giving you a nice maternity shape (this is her second pregnancy, so she’s looked around a lot for maternity clothes).  I suspect you may have that problem with the Celeste, b/c it is similar to some of the dresses I first suggested for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that she vetoed.

This dress is pretty cute:

It has the advantage of pulling in below the baby bump to give shape without being too tight.

I’ve always thought the dress she wears in the movie "Nine Months" is really cute also, but you have to be okay with going short.

Oooh I just did a big search and man so prego women look beautiful in wedding dresses (granted I am  bit biased since I love the look of pregnant women)

I think you will be fine!

Maybe go to your bridal store and try one things that were different from what you did before – obviously not form fitting!

Congrats!  Honestly you might not even be showing that much at 5 months if it is your first pregnancy, although every one is different!  There are some really cute maternity options out there πŸ™‚  Also, flowy regular styles may still fit you.  Good luck!

That particular one I posted above is $800. I got mine for $400 though so the price varies widely!

 Just my opinion, but I"d be shy about spending too much money on your wedding if i were you. I’d rather splurge on all the baby stuff, but that’s just my 2 cents!

My FI’s sister is 5 months along and she is DEFINITELY an obvious preggo lady. She’s really slender though so it’s super obvious. Depending on your body type you might be able to "hide" it if you want to. But if your showing, you might as well just be like "here it is, let me eat cake off it!
