I say go ahead and have that wedding. It sounds like you have a lot of the big stuff out of the way early so that will definitely help!

And congratulations!!

A baby is a happy thing, I’d design a custom dress and carry on with the plans!

Congratulations! If it were me, I would move the wedding forward so that I would be only 4-5 months pregnant so that I would be more comfortable plus as PPs have said planning a wedding is stressful so doing it with a newborn or even late in your pregnancy may be tough. Best of luck on whatever you decide though – what a joyful year for you – a husband and a little baby!

I’d also move it up by a month or two… but I’d still go on with it! What a happy thing to be sharing your big day with a baby. Congrats!

I’ve never been preg. so I don’t know it feels to be 7 months preg. but I would probably just go ahead with the date. If you decide to move it – I would moved it up, not back because I imagine a wedding with a newborn would be more exhausting. 

Like @galloway111 suggested, I’m sure most vendors would be willing to work with you, but all the vendors might not be available on the same date so that’s something to consider. 

Hopefully you find something that works! 

Take a look at empire style wedding gowns, they won’t need much alterations and I think they show off a baby bump beautifully. You would probably only need to get the lenth altered to account for your bump. 

I tried on this dress at David’s Bridal and it was really pretty:

This is tough, but if I were you I’d try to find another available date that all or most of your vendors could do instead, and I’d try to make that in like March or April.  I think your vendors will work with you to apply your deposits toward another date as long as they have availability.  March or April are usually not very busy for weddings, so they may actually prefer getting business then, knowing they’ll have plenty of time to rebook your original wedding date.

Being 8 months pregnant in August would not be very fun.  Your could swell up and you might not be able to spend much time on your feet, your rings may not fit, you could be uncomfortable.  Plus there’s always the risk that you’ll end up on bedrest or the baby could come a little early – and then you won’t be able to attend your wedding at all.  Travelling that late in your pregnancy is a bit of risk too, so there goes the honeymoon.   I think the safest bet would be to move it up, which you have plenty of time to do now, but if you find out in July that you have to stay off your feet to term its going to be too late. 

Plus if you move up the wedding you’ll be able to spend the months before the baby comes getting ready for your new arrival and not stressing out about a wedding.  I wouldn’t want to be doing both at the same time!

@sweetietooth:  I love that Heidi one too! I would wear it and I’m not pregnant!

Congratulations!  I would keep the original date, too.  Good luck with the dress shopping!
