First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!! What amazing, exciting news!! I think you have to determine your own comfort level and go with that. I wouldn’t be offended but if you’re going to be wondering the whole time what people are thinking, then maybe the fitted dress isn’t for you in this circumstance. If you can let that go and not care what people are thinking, then rock the Mikaella dress!

Other dress ideas should you want them:

Anything that hits at the natural waist will camoflauge the bump. I personally don’t feel that you should hide your bump but if your dress fits now I do worry it won’t fit then. I didn’t “show” til much later but my boobies seriously took off lol.

That’s a beautiful dress! I wouldn’t be offended at all – I love it when women flaunt the bumps 😀 But, personally, I’m not sure how comfortable I would be (would probably prefer something more flowy) and feel (comfortable to sit without feeling like the dress is digging into the tummy area/baby?)..Just my two cents. But I think the dress is great, and definitely not offensive. I think it’s more of an issue of comfort.

@MrsManni: you are entitiled, as am I. That dress looks like a hot mess, minus the hot. The top looks too big, the bottom looks like a poufed up ball of cheap fabric.

@TeamMcGowan: haha, yeah, which is why I was disagreeing. I was speaking in regards to the fitted dress on the belly – I do agree about the bottom though! 🙂

@mikaella.bride: I think it would be frowned upon to walk down the aisle preggo. I am somewhat traditional and think its a bit too much in the church. However, its a baby and all great things in life are not planned. Personally, I would wear something flowy to hide the baby bump some. If you were my friend I would still support you and cry at the wedding for your many blessings. I guess I’m saying it could go either way, do what makes you happy. You are very blessed; congrats!

As a guest, I wouldn’t be offended at all. Your dress is beautiful! If I were in your shoes though I would have another option because of how my family would react. I guess it depends on what you think!

Personally, I dislike the image of someone visibly with child…in a mermaid gown. I think there should be some attempt to conceal the baby bump. I’m no prude and I understand this sometimes happens during engagements, and sometimes even before….but I just think it’s in bad taste. If It were me…and I know any one of us soon to be married bees could find themselves in a similar situation….I would hope to GOD I’m not showing and still hang onto my original dress….but I’d have a back up that wont’ make me look so ‘obvious’ just in case. I’d sell the one I dont’ end up using.

Personally I wouldn’t be comfortable in such a form hugging gown if I was really really pregnant, but like PPs have said, you probably won’t be showing too much in your 3rd month, so you can probably get away with the dress. There is no way a pregnant bride would offend me unless she was absolutely spilling and busting out of her dress (but that would be offensive period, baby or not!) Congrats on your little one! So exciting to be getting married AND having a baby!

No matter what you do someone will have something to say. As far as i’m concerned it’s about if YOUR comfortable. No way in hell would I be offended.

I agree with the previous posters, you’ll barely look pregnant at 3 months and the dress is wonderful: Don’t worry. To be honest, when I clicked on the thread I was half expecting a see-through corset or one of those Pninas that have the girls “all-out” if you know what I mean.
Congratulations! And enjoy your gorgeous dress!!!

Anyone who would be offended or doesn’t take you seriously does not deserve to be there. No bad attitudes allowed!

I think the dress is a little fitted and might be a bit of a tug- it depends how much space there is in it- personally, I would prefer a more modest look, if it were me in the situation. I would not want to wear something that made me “wonder” or “worry” for any reason, you know?

if you think your family is okay with being pregnant before being married, then i wouldn’t worry. i dunno how big a 3 month tummy is but if it’s not that big, you might just look like you have a tummy so i might not wear that dress personally.
