@Hiya_Unicorn:  I’m due 2 days before my SIL wedding, i’m a bridesmaid! Oops! Honestly, I’m not going to miss it even if i’m 40 weeks or I have a 2 day old. I plan on buying a maxi dress in her “color” and that’s what i’ll wear. She’s having her bridesmaids wear different dresses in the same color scheme.

I went to a wedding where the Maid/Matron of Honor was about 7 months pregnant and she was the most adorable bridesmaid! They wore really simple empire-waist dresses.

I just got this same news from my Maid of Honor last night. She will only be about 5 months along when we have our wedding. She is a tiny girl so I can’t imagine her showing too much.

I already had my bridesmaid dress picked and of course it is fitted through the body with a full skirt (Alfred Sung for Dessy). She is willing to buy a bigger size and then get it tailored and probably have the waist lifted a bit. I did offer to find a different more empire waisted style so she would be more comfortable. I have seen and liked when the Maid/Matron of Honor wears a slightly different dress. We are still deciding but that is our first options.

@Ice Skate:  If its her first kiddo, at 5 months she’ll probably only have a little tiny bump

OP, I’m so glad this thread is the opposite of what I usually see on here: “oh my gooood, she’s pregnant! How awful, what will I doooo?” This was refreshing. ๐Ÿ™‚

This happened to a friend of mine who got married last year… And a friend who got married a few years ago ๐Ÿ™‚ My SIL was the pregnant one a few years ago… The dress was an empire waist jersey dress… My SIL bought a dress maybe 2 sizes too big and had it altered to fit her. Here’s a pic from the wedding last year… The bride’s 2 SILs were both pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚ We (I was also a BM) got to choose our dresses… So the two pregnant BMs chose the same dress in a larger size and had it altered down closer to the wedding… The pregnant girls are the two brunettes in the front, standing by each other ๐Ÿ™‚

@Peony007:  That dress does look like it has good belly room for her ๐Ÿ™‚

@Roe:  It is her first so that makes me feel better. I don’t want her to have to have to do crazy alterations!

two of my girls are preggo and an empire waisted gown did the trick, looked great on all the girls!  Bridesmaid or Best Man on the left is about 6 months, Maid/Matron of Honor on the right is not preggers.
