I also had a friend attend my wedding who went straight from the reception to the hospital in labour! She looked adorable in a long black maxi dress.

You should definitely go and enjoy your anniversary.

Im 34 weeks pregnant. I went to a wedding last saturday and did all the bridal party hair before. It just depends what YOU will be comfortable doing. DH plays in a band and at 37 weeks i will be attending a weekend of concerts, the longest distance being 2 hours away. As of right now i plan on going, but if i am too miserable or uncomfortable i will totally skip it


as others have said, i would go since it is your anniversary (:

I would go, but I’d have your DH call the groom and let him know that you’ll be very pregnant at the time, so if you’re not feeling well, you may have to back out.  Honestly, we had a friend who will be 36ish weeks at the wedding and told her if she wanted to come, RSVP yes, and if she needed to back out the day of because she wasn’t feeling great, no hard feelings.  People usually understand if you’re up front with them!

I’m 40 weeks + 4 days (sigh) and I could likely go to a wedding right now if I had to. I’m tired, but I really like my baby bump and I’d be happy to find a nice dress or outfit to show it off. At 34 weeks I was a bit more tired than I am now (go figure) but still would have been fine to go. Just let your husband know that you may want to leave a bit earlier in the evening than you typically would, but I think you can definitely go and have fun.

If you’re not a fan of your legs right now, what about a pair of black pants and a fancy top with great accessories? I would just recommend to wear layers. I’ve been having hot flashes throughout my third trimester, so don’t go in a sweater or something 😉

@kelly105:  How formal is the wedding? could you get away with pants and a pretty top?

Perhaps you could get your hair and makeup done before the wedding to feel more polished. But people will see you as a glowing pregnant lady, no matter what, you will look beautiful. I would RSVP yes.

Yay!! Glad you went and were able to get out for a night of fun before your LO arrives.

I would say go! If you don’t feel well while you’re there then you can always skidaddle on outta there a little early. Its not like you’re going to want to stay late to dance and drink anyway. I love the maxi dress suggestion. Here are some reasonably (IMHO) priced maxi dresses:
