Stunning Maternity Bridalwear For Your Special Day
Despite growing desire for non-traditional weddings, with scope for coloured wedding dresses, alternative venues, and greater freedom to have just the wedding you want; the options for Maternity Bridalwear are still limited.
So if you and your baby-to-be are walking down the aisle soon, or if (like me) you just like looking at wedding dresses, here are a few ways to discover stunning bridalwear for your special day.
The range may be sparse in most shops, but there are some great ranges online, with Seraphine, Cherish Me, and Tiffany Rose offering the most options specifically for maternity bridal.

If you’re rocking a baby bump (and possibly feeling overheated ALL THE TIME,) why not show a bit of leg? This will also allow you to wear a dress with plenty of volume in case baby has a growth spurt, without looking like you’ve just thrown a circular tablecloth over your head. Plus it allows you to look outside official bridal wear, and into maternity wear that just happens to be a good colour. Enter ASOS!

Now you don’t have to go for lime green, but it’s still worth considering a non-white wedding dress. which will have the added bonus of opening up a wider range of options not only in 'occasion-wear', but also maternity bridesmaid dresses in bridal-friendly colours.

The ‘Multi-way’ dresses that have been so popular recently could be perfect for your wedding dress. The variety of styles you can create, means that you can decide on the day which option will make you feel most beautiful, and comfortable.

Obviously, it’s particularly important that you try these on in the shop (or check the returns policy if you’re buying online), as a waist line or bust line in the wrong place will not be flattering. But there are still some intriguing options to consider, especially earlier on in your pregnancy. And remember ladies, the empire line is your friend.
