Maternity wedding dresses for pregnant brides who don’t look like “frumpy messes”

Morgan & Jeff's 4th of July backyard wedding
My little sister Morgan in her little white dress with her not-so-little baby-filled stomach.

At my wedding, I will be seven months pregnant. It hasn't been easy finding dresses that don't look like frumpy messes or pajamas.

Any other brides in this situation? And any ideas on where to look?

Aw, this is a question that is close to my heart since my sister was an adorable preggo bride. Of course, like her big sis, she had herself an offbeat wedding. At her Forth of July BBQ wedding, she rocked an adorable little white dress and coverlet that she got off the rack!

So, I've put together this roundup of other pregnant bride fashions — some are available to purchase with a click, some are just for inspiration's sake, and none of which shall make you look like a frumpy mess.

Of course it's not always A-line dresses that get the preggo love. How great is this curve hugging (celebrating!) dress? Photo by Zachary Hunt Photography

Here's one for the fearless summer bride. The combination of the vibrant fabric of the skirt and the knit top gives it a chic touch without compromising comfort. And the straps can be worn in two ways.

Comments on Maternity wedding dresses for pregnant brides who don’t look like “frumpy messes”

  1. For dresses not specifically made for pregnant bellies, be sure you have enough room at the hem to tailor. A round belly will lift the hem. Good luck! Much joy with the wedding and baby!

    • Good advice! Remember if you’re ordering the dress online to order LARGE and you will definitely need to have it altered as your body is changing daily.
      We always have our Maternity Brides’ last fittings a week before the wedding and are on call for day before adjustments.

  2. Oooh, pretty! A lot of these dresses are great whether or not you have a belly to work around. 🙂

  3. Also – there’s a site called maternitybride.com that is a good resource. I checked it out once before and it’s a designer in CA who started it in 2004. They have some cute options and I think you can rent them as well as buy them if you want to go that route.
