What to wear to a wedding when you're pregnant
Dressing for two can be tricky, but if you're pregnant and invited to a wedding, these styles will keep you and your bump looking chic throughout the celebrations
Proudly show off your bump with a wrap dress
Wrap dresses are a classic wardrobe staple for a reason - and an adjustable waist tie means you can keep wearing them as your figure changes
"A wrap dress would be perfect if you are busty - from one busty woman to another."
"I got a lovely green dress from Seraphine; it washes well and is very flattering."
"I got a nice dress from Seraphine that I've now worn dressed up for two weddings this summer. It's OK to wear for work too, so I can keep wearing it!"
Go for head-to-toe glam with an elegant maxi
A sophisticated style that works well with flats, so you can happily pair it with your comfiest shoes, save your back and keep dancing when others are crippled by stilettos
"Get a nice, flowy maxi dress with a flattering bust and V neck. You
can use it for nursing later on, so it won't be a one off!"
"There are some lovely maxi dresses on Seraphine at the moment."
"I had a fabulous Phase Eight maxi dress in a draped material which gathered under the bust in my last pregnancy. It did me for three weddings throughout the summer - at about 17, 22 and 29 weeks."
Have fun with florals - don't be a wallflower
Being upduffed is no excuse for fading into the background, so experiment with bold colours and summery patterns
"I really like the floral bardot dress from ASOS."
"I would suggest a skater-type dress that flows out after the bust - can be very flattering."
"I have just bought this for a wedding and it looks really
Now's not the time to shy away from tailoring
Don't consign yourself to nine months of shapeless sacks. A close fitting dress made specifically for maternity can be flattering, stylish and comfy
"I would go for a maternity dress and really showcase your bump. Topshop has some lovely stuff."
"I have a couple of maternity dresses from ASOS and I must say, I'll be wearing them after I've given birth too as they're not
obviously maternity wear. Some just have an elastic waist, which I'll
cover with a chunky belt after pregnancy."
"ASOS has some beautiful maternity frocks!"
Add a touch of class with a designer label
You and your bump only deserve the best. Invest in a designer dress to bolster your self-confidence when pregnancy hormones are sending you loopy
"Have you like looked at Tiffany Rose? I bought quite a few
bits from there for occasion wear."
"Madderson London - if it's good enough for
Kate Middleton and Zara Phillips!"
"I got a great occasion dress from Tiffany Rose - l liked it so much I had it taken in afterwards and I still wear it."
Rather save money for the baby? Budget options still rock
If cheap and cheerful is more your style, you can still look a million pounds, while only spending a few
"Affordable for weddings - this range looks good value and
not too sack-like."
"I've bought this to wear to a wedding at the end of August. I wore it last week to an evening do
and got compliments. It is maternity, but I didn't
think the price was too bad."
"I went to a wedding last week and wore this dress in blue - it was so cheap, but everyone commented on how nice it was!"
And remember, a well-placed belt can make all the difference
Cinching in your waist showcases your bump and boobs. Hey, if they're gonna be ballooning, you may as well make the most of them
"Isabella Oliver does lovely, very comfy, but glam-looking stuff. You can dress it up or wear it everyday and sell it on once you are no longer pregnant."
"I wore this in a different colour for a wedding
at 26 weeks. A really flattering style and you can tie it
according to where your bump sits."
"I'm currently 25 weeks and I have found my Lindy Bop
swing dresses have a lovely fit - the belt fastens over the top of my
bump just right."
