I know there considered tacky on mn but I’ve always wanted one since I was a kid and I’ve just found out we’re having a girl so I’m indulging myself (we’ll be getting a sensible buggy too for if we need to go on the bus or anything)
Well tbh, you can get most prams in pink now so it depends what you want it to do and your budget really as the features are all so different!
No idea about frills though, you can usually buy blankets and things that clip on to the hood etc to bling them up at markets or on Facebook/eBay sellers etc. Not my thing personally but I know plenty who use them.
I know it's not full on traditional frills BUT it might be a bit more practical in the long run, you can always add bits to jazz it up if you wish plus you've got the added bonus that on this model you can buy different colour packs for the hood, seat and carrycot if you fancied a change or wanted to reuse it for another child if it gets trashed or turns out to be a boy!
I've got a big old silver cross pram, which is fantastic and ds loves to sleep in it. It is folding and brown (so not pink and frilly) but there are lots of different colours available and lots of accessories.I found mine on eBay and then bought a new mattress etc.
Get whatever pram you want, then search ebay and Facebook for “pram fabrics”. There are people out there who make you all the frilly add ins yiubcoukd possibly want, and matching changing bags and drssses too.
Lots of women round my way go for the big frilly look. Are you any good with a hot glue gun? You can then add as much lacey trim, ribbons and fake fur as you can stand and then get frilly blankets. then if you get bored you can take it off. Or add more! Congratulations!
