I’m pregnant with my first child – so I don’t know how I will feel at 34 weeks. The wedding we are invited to is for DH’s old roommate.
I’m trying to figure out if I should go. Darling Husband will definitely go, but I’m not sure if I should tag along. The wedding is about 1 hour from our house – so it’s not terribly far. But what will I wear? I have terrible vericose veins, so I won’t be able to wear a knee-length dress.
And to put another spin on it: The wedding falls on the one year anniversary of OUR wedding. It would have been nice to attend the wedding with my husband for that reason.
What would you do?

I don’t think you’ll have trouble finding something to wear.. Maxi dresses are awesome, and you can definitely dress them up with the right shoes, makeup, and accessories.
I really do think you should go.. Though you probably wont dance much or drink, weddings are always a nice occassion. And besides, you don’t want to spend your 1 yera anniversary without your hubby! Thats crazy!

I would definitely go unless you are on strict bed-rest. You are still six weeks out at that point. There are some really beautiful full length maxi dresses that are gorgeous on mums-to-be! You will want to be with your husband on your 1st anniversary!

I would say go, too. I’ve never been 34 weeks pregnant, so I don’t know what it feels like, but I think you’ll want to go when the time comes, especially to be with your husband.
What time of year is the wedding? If it will be cool you can wear tights, and if it’s warm, I second the maxi dress idea.

We had a guest attend our wedding and I think she was that far along (if not even a bit more). We were more of a 30 minute drive away from their house, but there may have been traffic which brings it closer to 45. She wore a long maxi-type dress and just borrowed her husband’s jacket when it got a little cold. She was a little casual for our formal wedding, but it was totally understandable given how far along she was. We were just happy she came!

I would go. Granted I had my little boy at 32 almost 33 weeks. But honestly at that time I was feeling fine. It just so happened someone decided he wanted out and he wanted out early…

I would not have had trouble attending a wedding at 34 weeks. In fact, I was still feeling pretty good. I worked until 38 weeks in a pretty physical job (lots of stairs, lots of kneeling, bending, squatting, picking up kiddos who were having emotional breakdowns), so a wedding would have been a breeze!
Don’t stress about what to wear. You’ll find something at Target or something similar easily.

I’m going to be the matron of honor in my friend’s wedding at 34 weeks pregnant, so I definitely plan on attending! I’m sure I won’t be the life of the party, but I expect to be able to stand up during the ceremony and attend the events leading up to the wedding.

If you’re up to it then go! Not too long until going out becomes harder.

Yeah, I guess I’m just worried that I am going to feel fat and ugly around a bunch of people who are looking their best. Also the fact that I can’t drink or dance and I won’t know many people…
Some people say that they get very uncomfortable towards the end of the pregnancy… and I just don’t want to be misserable the whole time.
The wedding is towards the end of May. The city that they are having the wedding in tends to get humid. I don’t think I will be able to wear leggings – though you never know.

I would go. I went to plenty of christmas parties around 36-38 weeks. People kept asking me when I was going to pop and were making all sorts of jokes, that was alittle annoying. Wear whatever is comfortable. A maxi dress should be fine. Motherhood Maternity probably has a few.

Well I guess I will just RSVP ‘yes’ and plan to go… if I feel terrible the day of the wedding I am sure no one will mind if I skipped it. I just hate the thought of them paying for my plate and then not showing – but I guess they wouldn’t mind considering the circumstances.

@MrsHS: Well, if I looked like Angelina, I don’t think I would mind going anywhere!
I’m not a big fan of the dresses (in my pricerange) that are offered to pregnant women.

I’m 35 weeks right now. Would have been absolutely fine going to a wedding a week ago.
