As i’m in Australia I can’t really help with brands but one of my bridesmaids was pregnant – not quite as far along – more like 31/32 weeks and I just let her choose something that she was comfortable with (empire line gown) and my other bridesmaid had a different dress but in the same colour as she has a wonderful figure and I wanted her to be happy too. As for the day itself I just let her decide on her own thing and participate in what she felt up to. She missed some of the photos and actually ended up being quite sick for non pregnancy related reasons but the pregnancy exacerbabted it. In the end she was only at the reception for about an hour and missed the bridal party entrance e.t.c but it didn’t matter because how she felt was more important.

Make sure she’s able to sit during the ceremony, let her wear flats and just let her pick her own dress in your color. If you want all your bridesmaids to wear the same, choose an empire style dress.

Don’t give her any tasks during the wedding and whenever she feels tired, let her be tired and do nothing for a while and she’ll be fine.

How exciting you are going to be an aunt! I think just let me make the call on being comfortable.  I obviously don’t know your sister but i’m sure she is going to let you know what will be too much. Especially being so far along. Hopefully you guys are close enough that you guys can be open with one another.
