I had a friend that went right to the hospital from our wedding to deliver her baby at 39 weeks. She had the best time at our wedding, and was so glad to get a night out with her hubby before the baby came. I always remember her son’s birthday because it’s the day after my anniversary!!

I went to two weddings while pregnant this summer. I wore really cute hi-lo dresses and flats to both and I had a great time. I wish I could have been drinking, sure, but I still danced and celebrated just the same. I would just tell your DH ahead if time that if you’re uncomfortable or tired, you are the final word for when you decide it’s time to leave.

There was another friend if ours who was at one of the weddings this summer – the wedding was on a Saturday and she was ties that next week! She looked great sbd had fun but left early.

@Bichon Frise:  Ditto!  I hope to be this far along when I’m matron of honor in my best friend’s wedding next year. 🙂 I told her that since I won’t be drinking anyways, I can be the one to keep some of our bigger partier friends in line.

I say plan to go – like PPs have said, you’ll want to be with your hubby on your anniversary, and maxi dresses are so cute once you get bigger.  My sister was a BIG six months pregnant at our cousin’s wedding, and she looked fabulous in an ombre blue maxi dress.

Just think of the amazing dinner they’re hopefully going to have! Just because you can’t drink and won’t dance much doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some good food and cake! 🙂

I had a pregnanct friend at my wedding who was about 4 weeks from delivery, and she also brought her 3 other children and managed the whole thing with her husband superbly! You won’t have 3 little children with you too so I say go! 🙂

@kelly105:  why not make an appointment that day for getting your hair and nails done? might be a good time too because it could be right before baby comes.

I’m almost 37 weeks and would have been happy to attend a wedding at 34.  I think it would be a nice night out for you and your husband, especially since it’s your anniversary.  If you get tired or uncomfortable, you don’t have to stay the whole time.

If it wasn’t far away, I would go. You can enjoy the food and the cake!

Go, and have a good time! Get lots of pictures of yourself, not everyone has occasion to get all gussied up when they’re that pregnant. You’ll have some beautiful and uncommon photos — baby will love looking at them when he/she is older.

I will probably be enormous and gross when pregnant, so I personally would want to just loaf on the couch. Especially if it were not for my good friend.

No drinking at a wedding? No, thank you!

I’m 21 weeks now and I would just gage it on how I was feeling. I’d RSVP and if you can’t go because you don’t feel well I’m sure the couple will understand. Plus I’m sure you can find something nice to wear. If you don’t like maxi dresses maybe a pair or airy pants like gaucho pants and a cute shirt?

I would go! I had a co-worker who was out socializing until the day she delivered! She said she felt like a barn, but spending time with people helped distract her!

@kelly105:  I went to a wedding at (from memory) about 32 weeks. It was summer here so it was hot. I was fine. It was an outdoor wedding but the reception was indoor and air conditioned, so the heat and humidity weren’t really a problem. I never think pregnant women look ugly. I did all normal social things up to the very end of my pregnancy, each time. I wouldn’t even have considered staying home from a wedding.

I wore a knee length maternity dress. I wouldn’t worry about the veins, no one will be looking at your legs. Especially since you’ll be seated at a table most of the time.

@kelly105: 

No one really looks at a pregnant woman and goes eech, she’s a fat one.

It’s obvious you’re carrying a new life and people respect that. Get your hair done! Everyone feels better with nice hair!

I’d go and wear a maxi dress probably.  Is the wedding at a hotel? If it is (or close to one) maybe you guys could get a room for the night.  That way you could put your feet up between the wedding and reception and then leave when you want to and not have to drive all the way home. It would be a nice way to celebrate your anniversary too I think!
