    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.
