Not so many years ago, a maternity wedding dress was an object of shame and derision. Certainly not something to celebrate! Luckily for today’s pregnant bride attitudes in most quarters have changed dramatically and the maternity wedding gown is rapidly becoming trendy.
In a maternity boutique or bridal salon, it’s hard to find lots of nice maternity wedding dresses to choose from. so check the Internet to see who has these special wedding dresses in stock. If you’re looking for your wedding dress very far in advance, you’ll want to take into consideration how far along you’ll be on your wedding day. If you are expecting you can look for the perfect dress, but it is sometimes best to wait until closer to the wedding to ensure you get the right size. By doing this, you’ll eliminate any concern that your dress won’t be able to accommodate your growing tummy.
If you want a grand, traditional wedding, feel free to choose an elegant, elaborate wedding gown with a few alterations for your growing tummy. If you prefer a simple, low-key wedding, choose a simple, elegant dress. Also, accessorize in any way that fits within your style.
If you have a beach wedding, wearing a full length crystal covered heavy ball gown to a beach wedding is not a good idea because not only does it not fit in with the venue, it’s also too hot! No pregnant woman wants to walk 20 yards in the sand while wearing a 9-pound beaded gown.
In some communities, there is a taboo that the bride should not wear white if they are pregnant. The great thing is, there are no set rules regarding maternity wedding dresses. If you opt to wear colors other than white, Natural shades such as champagne, ivory, grey and very light pastels are always popular, but striking reds, blues, pinks and black are very fashionable. It’s your wedding … and as a twenty first century bride … you really can have exactly the colour scheme you want. And if you love bold colour, but want a traditional coloured maternity wedding dress, why not introduce your chosen colour with your flowers and accessories?
Finally, wear your dress with confidence. This is your big day, and you should enjoy it looking elegant, gorgeous, and most of all, confident. Whatever dress you choose, you’ll look beautiful if you work the look. Don’t feel as if you should be subtle or subdued (unless that would always be your preference). This is your big day, and you should rock your look with confidence. Work your pregnancy glow, and enjoy your big day.
