Wait, what? She’s getting pregnant on purpose to steal your thunder?? Joke’s on her then! Screaming baby followed by bratty teenager just for trying to steal one day of attention from you. Let her wear a clown suit for all you should care, you’re the bride no one will even notice her!

Its super cute but I don’t know that it would work for a pregnant woman.  Its kinda short, so her belly will end up shortening it even more.  And the bodice may be a bit tight for her.  I’d suggest trying to find a less form fitting style and one that’s a lil longer (some pregnant women do NOT want to show their legs!).  They’re really popular now so you shouldn’t have a problem. 

How cute is this one!  Not sure what style the other girls are wearing though… wait, why is she doing this intentionally to outshine you?  That’s crap! [attachment=651094,84938]

I don’t think that’ll fit someone that far along. She’ll be round up top, where the dress fits.

“I dont want her to be the only one wearing something diff… because 1 she trys to steal my thunder all the time. 2 she is getting prego on purpose for this reason. 3 shes not my moh’s .”

I think stuffing her into something would backfire–shell look so ridiculous everyone’ll wonder why she’s not in a maternity dress!

Is she pregnant already or just plannign on it?

Um that is messed up she is purposely having a child to steal your thunder. I mean seriously she needs counseling if that is the only reason she is having a child.

Also since it’s black…make her get a black maternity dresss that you pick out so it’s not going to steal your thunder.

Something like this http://www.anntaylorloft.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=20843&N=1200041&pCategoryId=3363&categoryId=639&Ns=CATEGORY_SEQ_639&gridSize=sm&showAll=true&cid=g_ps&cid=PPC0001&defaultColor=Black&defaultSizeType=Regular’ defer=’defer

When she asks why she can’t wear the same cute dress as everyone else say she would look ridiculous pregnant in it and you want to make sure her dress is appropriate for a mother to be.

her belly should be big by 7,8,9 months…Have u seen the dress in real life?  The bottom part looks puffy on the outside, but the lining probably isn’t puffy as well, its probably straight.  So the belly is gonna lift the front part up making it short in the front.  Can you go try the dress on somewhere and put a pillow in the belly to see what happens??

Regardless of her reasons for getting pregnant (just to ruin your wedding seems a bit extreme), I think that dress would look terrible on someone late in their pregnancy.

Well you have plently of time to order the dresses. So I think you’ll know if she will be huge at your wedding or not before making a decision on dresses. But I agree with Chartreuse- I bet the lining of that dress is tighter than it looks. So I wouldn’t try to put a pregnant person in it.

Who was the Bee that recently posted pics with 2 pregnant BMs? The dresses we the style like the ones jennifer espos posted.

I agree with Jennifer Espos – you should have her wear a maternity dress. Something with an empire waist that will have room to accomodate he growing belly (and chest – her boobs are for sure going to get larger!). The dress you selected is beautiful, but it unfortunately wouldn’t work on a pregnant woman that far along. Sorry for the stress she appears to be putting you through!

I don’t a think a short dress would work since her belly would make the dress ride up.  And really?  She’s done that on purpose to steal your thunder?  You’re wearing the white dress, not her, don’t let her get to you.

I agree with everyone. A dress like that on a woman that pregnant will look more like a shirt. I’d go with an empire waist dress (or maternity dress) which is at least just below the knees.

I have to agree with everyone here, I don’t think this would look good on a pregnant woman.  Mostly because of the legs.

yeah, that dress on her is gonna steal more of your spotlight than anything else.

Get her a nice, conservative, knee length black maternity dress and put her last in line for your BMs – if she asks why she’s last, explain that because she doesn’t match, you want her to stick out less. Is that mean of me? Who am I kidding, I KNOW it’s mean, but it’s what I would do if she’s really being so petty.

First, wow…getting pregnant to upstage a friend…someone’s got issues!

I think that dress is adorable, but I don’t think it would look good on someone that far along.  Her belly will make it so much shorter in the front that it might be more tunic length on her than dress length.  Plus the cute hem on the bottom would probably hit her in all the wrong places and frankly, would you want to have to see that in your pictures?  

How about something like this?  It’s a cute appropriate maternity dress.

One of my BM’s put this dress on when she was about 8 months pregnant and it looked great.  I think you run a big risk putting her in a short dress that either her boobs will be too big for the top, or her belly will make the dress too short.
