Hey ladies, I’m going to be the Maid/Matron of Honor and only bridesmaid for my friend’s wedding in Feb, when I’ll be 30 weeks pregnant. She had previously picked out a non-maternity floor length midnight blue chiffon Dessy dress, before she knew about the pregnancy. Dessy has a few maternity options, but they are all $250, and honestly that feels pretty steep for me, given that I just bought a house, have a baby on the way, and will have to fly across the country and stay in a hotel for the wedding. I will pay it if that’s what she ends up picking, but I’m looking for more cost effective options she may also be happy with. Any suggestions?

You can rent this Jenny Yoo maternity bridesmaids dress in dark blue at http://www.vowtobechic.com/cerise-maternity for $95. This website is essentially rent the runway specifically for bridesmaids dresses. It has convertible panels so you can wear it in many different styles, (i.e. strapless, one shoulder, halter, etc). I just used this website for my bridesmaids to rent dresses (we got non-maternity version of this dress, the Aiden) and the quality was amazing. It seems silly for you to spend that much for a dress you can only wear when you’re pregnant (not like you will ever really wear a chiffon bridesmaids dress again).

My bridesmaids are planning on wearing convertible bridesmaid dresses, and from review/pictures I’ve seen they fit well for maternity dresses too! I will probably get their dresses off Etsy so you could try looking there, or there are other companies that sell them too, just google!

zwimmerz : They might but just be careful that the front of the dress is long enough to accomodate the baby bump! 🙂

Though not a maternity dress specifically, this one could be an alternative. Sold by Nuichan, an Etsy store with an impressive amount of good reviews. Very reasonable price: $65.00.

One of my bridesmaids was pregnant too. I used these dresses for all my girls (because they fit ALL body types flatteringly)…and I’m sure you could find a dress that would compliment the other girls dresses: https://www.henkaa.com/shop
