@Soon2BMrsP818: I think you should let her be a bridesmaid. Do they need measurements to order the dresses? Or just a size?

She could order one a size larger than her pre-pregnancy size and get it altered to her body when it comes in with the others.

I’m sure salons have dealt with this before.

I think you should still have her as a bridesmaid unless she tells you that it is too much of a burden on her. Otherwise you are pretty much saying that it’s more important to have a certain look or dress, than it is to have her as a bridesmaid if you ask her to step down due to a dress.

I would ask her again to see if she thinks she can handle the responsibilites and financial aspects and if she says she can then I would just order a size up of the dress from what she thinks she will be.

I think she’d be really hurt if ‘demoted’. I know that by the time my friends are starting to get married, I’ll probably be in the next stage of my life: babies. And if I wasn’t allowed to be a bridesmaid because I was pregnant, or was demoted because of it, I would be deeply hurt. I think you should just have her order a size or two larger; it can always be taken in (usually up to five sizes). Then you won’t have to worry about the dress being late 🙂

I agree with everyone.  just have her order a larger size and have it altered.  That’s what we are doing for my SIL who is 9 mos preggo!
