I am actually having a similar problem… not three of them but my Maid/Matron of Honor just got pregnant. She is due in Sept. My wedding is in Oct. I am very happy for her bc they have been trying for almost two years. But as far as it goes I guess I figure she will be large up top and have some tummy… I am going to suggest she picks a dress with a empire waist and an aline skirt.

If you haven’t set your heart on a particular dress you might look for a style that would be flattering and accommodating, big bellies or no, like an empire waist or something.

I don’t know how married you are to the idea of all your bridesmaids wearing the same dress, but since you have so many who could potentially be pregnant, maybe you could just pick a designer, color, and fabric and say all the girls can pick any dress they want within those parameters. Then the ones who aren’t trying to get pregnant can pick a dress and get started on their alterations, while the ones who may be pregnant can wait a little while, and see where they are when it gets closer to the wedding (or they can worry about picking a dress that may be able to grow a little bit more with their bellies).

But if you’d really like them all to wear the same dress, you might just have to wait until it gets much closer to the wedding (trust me, I know how hard that may be – I was more excited to pick out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses than my own!). One of my bridesmaids was able to "rush order" her dress for an extra $15, and she got it about a month after ordering it. So, you have more time than you think you do.

I agree with ES123. My sister family-planned around my wedding and just had a baby. And another one of my BMs is actively tring. due to this, I waited until this month (less than five months to go) to have my ladies order their dresses. I say wait a few months so you’ll know a bit better where the girls are at. And if you can be flexible about what dress they can order (Melissa Sweet has a few empire waist numbers) and when they order it that would be very helpful. Just be a bit patient and it will all work out!! Good luck!

rock that empire waist!  have you decided on a fabric yet?  a chiffon might be a little more forgiving and flexible than, say, a dupioni.

Also, TwoBirds has this convertible dress that can be worn tons of different ways- it could look great on all your ladies!

I love the look of Aria Bridesmaids. They have some cute maternity options and also some dresses that fit looser that are not maternity styles. As ES123 said, if you don’t have to have all 6 girls looking identical, you might consider a company such as Aria – that way each girl can pick the style they think is most flattering on them. http://www.ariadress.com/designs.htm

my Maid/Matron of Honor is also trying to get pregnant and my wedding is early June.  therefore i’ve waited this long (and maybe just a lil due to my laziness) and will order the dresses this month, next month the LATEST.  after the "timing" this month she’ll just order a size or two up just in case she gets pregnant between now and then but since i only have 5 months left chances are she won’t be THAT big. 

oh boo, we’re looking at dupioni fabric…

Since these girls are small to begin with, how about babydoll dresses?  I am scouring Style Me Pretty trying to find these gorgeous ones in black from a while back.  I did find THIS, though.

My moh thought she might be prego so she picked an empire waist dress that was too big for her on purpose.  Then, about 3 weeks before the wedding she had it altered to fit her new prego body.  If she hadn’t have gotten prego it wouldn’t have been an issue because a dress can always be taken in.

I know you said you weren’t into the different dresses thing, but here is a pic of how it looks.  Since my moh was prego and my bm’s were also wide-spread like yours, I gave them about 20 dresses from David’s Bridal to choose from and they each picked their own dresses.

Check out THIS, in the photo with the bride lined up with her BMs…there’s a prego in there and the dresses are the same and from J. Crew.

FINALLY FOUND IT!!!!!  I was wrong before, it’s on The Bride’s Cafe, here ya go: bridesmaids in babydoll dresses…If I could redo my wedding it would look just like that, so chic!

Yep – I am in the same boat!  My best friend is trying to get pregnant (& I hope that she does!!).  We ordered Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses right away, since they were on sale for $39.  So, she just bought two of them 🙂

Check out the J. Crew Juliet Dress.  Silk Chiffon, Empire Waist – the flowy fabric and high waist will be perfect for a baby bump.

Good luck!
