So I am working on a wedding blog that kind of follows my DIY wedding planning ups and downs tips and tricks… and as a current nursing mother I have been having a hard time finding good articles on mothers who chose to breastfeed their babies on their wedding day… If this is you, PLEASE SHARE! Also feel free to follow this link and share your story in the comment section of my blog post! <3 WOULD LOVE TO SHARE PRO NURSING BRIDE STORIES! <3
What made you choose to breastfeed on your wedding day?
Was it hard to find the time to nurse?
Any advice for soon to be brides who choose to breast feed?

I think it depends on how comfortable you are with breast feeding in public and how comfortable oyur guests will be with the idea. I attened a wedding where the bride was breastfeeding. She wore a strapless dress and just kind of popped the boob out as necessary. This was in Europe, where nipples are not taboo I can imagine in the US, this would be much less acceptable. I also attended a wedding where another guest at our table was a breat feeding mom and she fed her baby at the table which was also totally acceptable. She had a cardigan which made for more of a modest feeding situation. If you are only comfortable breast feeding in a private room, I think it may remove you for your wedding quite a bit depending on how often you need to feed. If this is ahte case, I think you should sit down and pump ahead of time so you don’t feel like oy u need to keep slipping out to nurse.
ETA: Oops, I guess I forgot to answer oyur question. I think a breastfeeding bride is fine but I do appriciate it to be done more modestly than popping a boob out of the top of a strapless dress. I don’t think one should flaunt breast feeding even though I am fine with it in public. I just don’t think it should be a statement. It is natural and necessary but if you are dressed in formal clothes, you should also maintain a certain level of formality. Maybe a schall or cardigan that makes it less blatant would be more my style.

@slicey19: Unless your wedding is less than 3 hours in duration you’re going to have to ‘keep slipping out’ to pump anyway.
