Hi bees —
I’m a bridesmaid in May 2018, and trying to figure out how to choose a dress style/size since I might get pregnant between now and then. My husband and I are waiting until October to begin trying, so at most I could be around 7 months pregnant, more likely a bit less since I don’t expect to get pregnant with the first month of trying. For the dresses, we can pick any knee-length style from David’s Bridal. I’m thinking of maybe getting a dress in a style that could work with a baby belly, and also ordering it with extra length (could be hemmed shorter if needed) and ordering one size up from my current size (could be taken in if necessary). Do you think that could work? Does anyone have experience with this? If it’s helpful at all — I’m 5’5″ around 130 lbs.
An alternate option would be to order two dresses — sounds a little crazy, but I really want to be sure I have a dress that can fit.
