Ok so i had my bridesmaids dresses bought a few years ago when we where sapost to have the wedding the first time but my dad could not make it so i called it off. I thought they were nice and they were $30 each at the deb. Well now i am haveing the wedding again and i am also standing a the Maid/Matron of Honor in one of my bridesmaids wedding a month before mine so we went dress shopping for her wedding and all she could say is how she can put me in any dress because i am putting her in the worse dress ever ( it is a orange halter dress that is poofy kind of and has the bunches in the middle of the dress. it is a very nice prom dress) So i finally told her that i would look at lother dresses well i finally found one that they all liked. well now another bridesmaid tells me today that her is prego ( i am happy for her don’t get me wrong) but the new dress would not fit good on a baby bump it is too tight in the middle so now i have no clue how big she will be by the wedding and so i have to change the dress again. idk what to do any thoughts?
Thanks for listening to my rant you peeps are great

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!
