SO, big news! About a year after we got engaged, I found out I was pregnant! (Totally unplanned and we were using contraception! lol) We had planned a long engagement because he doesnt graduate until May 2011 and I wanted a Fall wedding. So I had honestly planned on wedding dress shopping this fall. Now Im worried about the timing of it all, and will it even fit?
Baby is due end of March and that gives me 6 months to loose the weight for our wedding. The two options are getting a dress last minute or shopping while pregnant and hope I look good in the dress after a baby.
Im kinda down about the whole thing cus 2 of life’s events are happening in the same year for us (I wanted to saver these moments!!)

First, congrats!!! Two very exciting life events in one year! That’s awesome! Second, it all depends on what type of dress you want to buy and where you buy it. If you can find something from a department store (think JCrew, White House Black Market, Nordstrom, Neimans, Saks) you could buy it off the rack last minute and get alterations as needed by a local tailor/seamstress in very little time. However, if you’re going shopping at a bridal shop, you might have some trouble unless you go with some place like David’s Bridal or a place that will sell you the sample. I would almost recommend waiting. You never know how your body will change with pregnancy…AND you never know how your budget will change either!! Good luck!

CONGRATS!! That is so wonderful!
You may consider looking into a dress that is either empire wasted or a corset back.

i would say shop now so you know what type of style you want and then after the baby oi born you can try on those types of dresses to see if they will look ok then purchase…
