I second the maxi dress idea.

Ive never had a baby before so I don’t know what it’s like to be post partum. However I have huge boobs and I’ve always had a belly so I totally understand what it feels like to not be able to fit into those cute tight dresses. I usually wear tee shirt dresses to weddings and events and add some accessories and nice heels.

Lol! I know how you feel. I have to go to a wedding today and I was planning to wear a short-ish loose dress, but then I found out the wind is going to be severe and the wedding is on a boat too… So my only other option is to wear a very tight, long dress that I have in the cupboard. Ughhhhh I wasnt planning on wearing a skin tight dress… I am not ready for this at all. Now I’m like how can I cover up… I’m hoping a cardigan over top + a coat will help. Luckily it’s an evening wedding and it’ll be cold, so I won’t look weird! I hope.

bethio :  If it were my wedding and you came in a paper bag I would give exactly zero fucks. What difference does it make to me what people wear? I’d just be elated that you came knowing that you’re struggling. So I say hells yes to the PJ’s and you rock that wedding!

FWIW someone actually showed up to our wedding in scrubs. The best part is we took pictures at his house beforehand and he was wearing jeans and a t-shirt then so it’s not like he came straight from work or anything. He actually CHANGED into the scrubs for the wedding. And you know what? No one cared. We definitely got a laugh out of it, but it had no impact on our night whatsover. I say why not?? tongue-out

You remind me of my friend… Are you her disguise? 😂


We had a laid back wedding, husband Put his shorts on after the ceremony, guests wore flip flops… My friend asked if she could put her pj’s on after she had food, I said yeah why not!! But my other friend told her off! 😂


I was just happy she was there, I didn’t care what she wore, or anyone else.
