I personally wouldn’t care as long as I had my closest family/friends that I chose to be a part of my wedding right there with me bun in the oven and all 🙂

I had one of my bridesmaids tell me in July of last year she was pregnant, putting her at about 6 months pregnant for our wedding. Her dress had already been ordered by then, and she was afraid it wouldn’t fit. We made a few calls and ordered a dress that was on the “maternity friendly” list (which had also happened to be her second favorite style she had tried on at the shop) so for us it wasn’t a big deall 🙂

I thought she was absolutely adorable and her bump in the photos makes me smile! Pregnant women always bring such a wonderful atmosphere with them where ever they go… unless it’s me of course.

My friend told me she was TTC #4  when I asked her to be a bridesmaid, so we ordered her dress a lot bigger than it needed to be, and with an A-line pattern.   She will be 7 months, when I get married on Saturday.

She fits in her dress, but had to get the busts taken in a bit.   Her dress was actually the only one that really fit, the other two were too small for my bridesmaids.

It really wasn’t an issue at all, and I was really glad she let me know she was TTC up front.  I also told her I would totally understand if she changed her mind, but she said she would wear a circus tent if need be!

I would think it’s not inconsiderate. Maybe you could just let her know about your plans… assuming that you have that kind of relationship with her.

And in my opinion, a pregnant bridesmaid at my wedding would be awesome. I mean, if one of my friends had a little bump, I’d be thrilled to offer up those cute wedding pics later. And to share that with the little one later on down the road… awesomeness!!

We had a friend drop out of our wedding party because her due date is a week after the wedding and they would have had to fly here. Totally understandable, but I’ll miss her.

Another Bridesmaid or Best Man told me last month she’s prego…we’re watching her dress become too small at a rapid rate. Not sure what we’re gonna do there. She’s just lucky I really don’t care if they match!

My bridesmaid/cousin is currently pregnant and due in late September. Our wedding is December 31st and the main problem we’ve encountered is ordering a dress to recieve it in time for the wedding since she wont know what size she will be after the baby is here. Ultimately she decided to just order fabric from the designer and have one made for her since the bridesmaids are chosing which dress they want as long as its the same fabric and length…  I’d be worried if she were going to be pregnant for the day of just as far as the fit goes.. like what if she got really big and the couple of sizes she ordered up wasn’t enough… you never know

 

but ultimately it will happen when it happens and I’m sure your friends will be overjoyed for you and accommodating to your situation! 🙂

I am so glad you wrote about this!! This was one of my fears too. I am in my best friend’s wedding this fall. I had a pregnancy scare and went to her for support and she was sooo excited. Seeing her reaction let me know it was ok for her and that she would be nothing but happy for me. So we ended up ttc  after the scare andnow I just found out I am pregnant. I will be about/ almost 5 months at her wedding. One of the first things I did when I found out was call the dress shop and get a bigger size. I think she is a little disapointed that I wont be able to “celebrate” with her at her bachelorette party like we would usually but I will do something to make it special and fun!!!

ps It also gives me motivation to try to stay fit through pregnancy…. I know that sounds vain but it does give me a little motivation

I expect all three women in our bridal party to be pregnant or to have just given birth at the time of our wedding. That’s the hazard of being the last in your friend group to get hitched!

I would be okay with it! To me, it would be like going through different stages of our life together. And, you can show the little one the beautiful pictures of your bump later on! = )

OMG, I am in the same boat as you and

@nonoame:. We are in my first cycle of TTC. My BFF is getting married in October and i’m a bridesmaid. She does not know of our plans but I know that she is so badly wanting babies so i’m afraid it might make her a bit jealous. If we were to get pregnant cycle 2 that would make me 3 months for her wedding, which seems a bit rude since I would feel like I planned to announce my pregnancy at her wedding. That is not at all what I want and I would probably try and hold off till after her wedding to announce (if it isn’t blatently obvious).

I am going to be a pregnant Bridesmaid or Best Man. The bride is very excited for me. Plus, the store will order me a larger dress. So everything will work out.
