One of my BM’s was four months pregnant on my wedding day. She actually didn’t tell me she was pregnant until two weeks before the wedding…and she only told me because she was starting to show. She said she didn’t want to steal my thunder. I assured her she was being ridiculous and congratulated her. It all worked out because the style of bridesmaid dress I had chosen accomodated her bump, and thogh I was totally fine with her being ‘open’ about her pregnancy at the wedding she said she’d prefer not to. She held her boquet in such a way during the ceremony and photos that nobody could see her tummy…and for the reception she slipped a sweater over her dress.

So my story is pretty benign compaired to some of these other ones I guess!

I was a pregnant Bridesmaid or Best Man but I was only about 13 weeks so I was still able to fit into my dress just barely. I’ve also been to weddings with very pregnant BMs but personally I wouldn’t be comfortable travelling at 33 weeks.

I was supposed to be a bridesmaid for a friend but the date was right around my due date and the dress had no hope of working for me so I stepped down.  I ended up giving birth about four weeks before her wedding and I was still pretty glad not to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man.  We attended as guests.

I still helped throw her bachelorette party and bridal shower, and she always made me feel like a Bridesmaid or Best Man even if I wasn’t standing up there.

My SIL (who will be one of my bridesmaids) mentioned in conversation to my mother that she and my brother were thinking that they’d probably try or at least plan more (to have a child) by next year (my wedding is 11/2017).

I’d pretty much decided I would just have each bridesmaid wear a dress of her choice (with color/length being the samefor all). It will work out for her if she does become pregnant and begins to show by the wedding! It’s a long time away though!

We just found out my SIL is about three months pregnant and my Maid/Matron of Honor has taken two pregnancy tests a week for the last few weeks, so I’d say she’s trying and my wedding is ten months away. SIL is due beginning of March but I have a feeling my Maid/Matron of Honor will be pregnant the day of. (They only live an hour away though so not a big deal) 

I did tell both my SIL and Maid/Matron of Honor to choose dresses they would still feel comfortable in if they were pregnant/just had a baby. I love babies, I just hope no one goes into labor at my wedding/reception! 😜

whytneynicole :  My best friend became pregnant, and was initially due a week after my wedding… ans she is also a 3 hour flight away.  While very happy for her, I was also very bummed, and that’s ok!  She was bummed too because she had been looking forward to my wedding for a quite a while. 

The day of my weddding we texted, tried to call, exchanged pics, and just a couple of days ago she gave brith to a beautiful little girl!  Despite the distance, it was still wonderful to go through these big life changes together!!

why can’t she fly? medical condition?  she should have no problem flying at 33 weeks.

It’s a 30 hours flight. Even with no medical condition (which the bridesmaid has, so it’s another story) I would be worried to fly that long while pregnant because od DVT risk.

I have 5 bridesmaids. One will be 39 weeks on my wedding day. I will not be replacing her, my bridesmaids are all going to be in mismatched dresses anyway so I told her if she feels up to it I hope she can still make it whether she stands up for me or not. I will be sad if she cant come at all but it would be completely understandable. I will still have a bouquet for her if she does feel up to it! (If not, I’ll toss it in her honor to see who will get pregnant next LOL!) 😉
