What You Have To Look Forward To…
As the resident Pregosaurus Rex here at The O, I feel it is my duty to speak up for all pregnant bridesmaids.Â As the wedding planner, I have literally struggled with finding something to wear at events that is professional– and does not screamÂ “Hi, I’m harboring aliens under this mumu”.
No comments from the peanut gallery.
Â I have finally found some gorgeous pieces, but I began to think…what about the poor bridesmaid?Â Here she is, hating life due to swollen ankles, headaches, nosebleeds, and all other baby boarding madness, and then has to find a formal dress to get into.Â Ok, pregnancy isn’t all that bad (this one has been a breeze for me, but I’m a pro)– but seriously, be kind to your mommy-to-be friends!
I know you don’t want to base your bridesmaids’ dress solely around your one pregnant maid. You really don’t have to– designers like Watters and Watters (pictured above) and David’s Bridal offer maternity dresses in their popular designs.Â You could also opt not to have a single dress– instead offering each maid a swatch and letting her pick the design that is complementary to herÂ own body shape.Â Besides,Â do you reallyÂ need a uniform for your wedding– same dress, earrings, shoes, hair, etc.?
Â Trust me, being pregnant and still trying toÂ wear 4 inch heels is an artform.
