I think you’ve got to find new dresses that work for everyone. Or, you could go the mis-matched route and let them pick any dress in a certain color, of a certain length, etc. This is often easiest – people can pick something they like in a price-range they like.

I personally think that letting a pregnant MOH/BM wear a different but coordinating dress is completely acceptable.

If you fire her or put them all in mediocre dresses, just because they match, you risk looking like you care more about appearances than the fact that you’re marrying your best friend and love of your life!

On the other hand if all the girls are happy & feel pretty, and your pregnant friend gets to wear something that works for maternity & is cohesive, you will look like you are just happy to be celebrating this wonderful day and too busy to be concerned with minor changes in plans.

ps My sister is having twins, and her due date is the day AFTER our wedding! Luckily the babies are very healthy, and she is having enough contractions that they are guessing she will have them between 34 & 36 weeks, which is considered healthy fir twins, and means it will all happen about a month before the wedding.

She is my Matron of Honor, and no one else could take that place. I let her pick a gown that is a dark neutral, while the others are in creams & greys so she will feel comfortable & can cover up the baby weight 😉

IMO, the time the BMs spend on the aisle or the time they stand up with you and how their dresses look is nothing compared with the lifelong memory of having your closest friends that you chose stand with you on this day.

Yeah, you could totally put her in a different dress. It won’t look odd because it’ll be really obvious why she’s in a different dress so it won’t just be a random person in a random dress :).

If you do change it, be sure to look for nice flowy empire waisted dresses!
