@SweetMelissa429: Yes, I’m definitely going to see if she’s okay with flats! Thank you 🙂 I ordered a regular bridesmaid dress for her wedding and then took a pregnancy test the next day- very positive! I called and cancelled that order, haha. The type of dress I’m wearing is by the same designer as the other girls’, same color, same length, same material– they just took my breast measurements and the rest allows for room for a big, preggo belly! I’m sure you will be fine too!! The only thing I’m really missing out on for all of her wedding festitivies is her bachelorette party b/c I REFUSE to be preggo and out in the clubs! Notttt happening. Haha!

@MrsPHopefully: I totally agree. These posts drive me crazy because as a bride I would never tell anyone when they can TTC, nor would I be upset if I had a pregnant BM! Once I am married, I am not going to plan my life around others. If there is a good time to TTC, I’m not going to let someone elses’ wedding stop me.
OP, what I would do is just buy the dress a couple of sizes bigger, that way if you are NOT pregnant, you can have it altered back down to your actual size. As I’m sure you’re aware, TTC can take a lot longer than you plan.

Thanks girls! I don’t recall asking for advice on when to TTC, but rather what options others have found helpful or successful in the past – but there’s one in every crowd. I’m thinking at least 1-2 sizes larger and extra fabric if possible and I should be good to have it altered if needed. Yep, I’m aware that it could take a while – hopefully not too long, but we’re prepared for the journey 😉 Just like no one can plan their wedding for the “perfect” day, no one can plan their baby for the “perfect” time. I will still do everything that I possibly can to be at every event and help with the wedding as much as possible…heck, I’ve already helped her do a ton of stuff! She and I have become really good friends and, like I said before, at the end of the day, friends celebrate each other’s big milestones and I’m certain that she is that kind of friend 🙂
Yeeaahhh…not sure that I would be joining the bachelorette party in the clubs either 😉 She’s not a huge partier though, so that may or may not be an issue. If I am pg and not able to make it to her party, I would definitely make it up to her with a spa day or mani/pedi’s or something.

@SweetMelissa429: My post didn’t say anything at all on when you should TTC

@ButterflyButterfly: Oh no, that wasn’t directed at you, but rather the ones who have turned this into a Family Planning council session – sorry for the misunderstanding! I was genuinely thanking you and agreeing with you 🙂

@SweetMelissa429: talk with the seamstress and bridal consultant privately before ordering. They will know what to do!

@SweetMelissa429: You really don’t need to order the dress for another few months. If the bride asks tell her why you don’t want to order yours yet. In a few months you will have a better idea how pregnant you will be at the time of the wedding.

@SweetMelissa429: I admit I didn’t read all the suggestions so this may have already been brought up but if you were previously willing to spend $200 and these dresses are only $50 would you be willing to buy two dresses? One at your current size and then another maybe 3 -4 (I’ve never been pregnant so i have no idea how mamy sizes would be reasonable) sizes bigger? If the dresses are sent to your house the bride doesn’t need to know and it’s still cheaper than you were looking at initially

My sis was over 8 months pregnant by my wedding. We knew there was a chance ahe wouldn’t make it, but worked on the assumption that she would. Our dresses were made so they did hers last and put a corset type back so that we had some flexibility! She organised my hen do (she volunteered, I didn’t expect it!). On the day she struggled because we feet swelled up massively so she had to sit down a lot. It wasn’t a problem though, she stood for the important bits.
