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

Morgan & Jeff's 4th of July backyard wedding

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.

Hope I've helped you some on your awesome maternity dress search. And if I've indeed helped you find your perfect dress, you can easily thank me by naming your child after me. 😉

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

  1. I wore the same dress as in that last picture. It would make an awesome prego wedding dress! Totally form fitting, super comfy, and lots of stretch.

  2. Great post!! I tell you people always forget about the pregnant brides. I especially love the curve hugging dress. Gotta love a pregnant woman wanting and her curves!!

  3. Morgan will laugh but Rosie Pope actually has some great options and can be purchased on line!

  4. Amazing! I’m making my own dress that would work pregnant or not (currently trying to make a baby…well, not right now haha) but these dresses are lovely!

  5. awwwwww I never thought you would describe me as “an adorable preggo bride”, in fact I never thought you would use the words adorable and preggo in the same description! Thanks big sis =)

  6. If you can afford it, the hottest dress I ever saw that could work for maternity(but isn’t advertised as such) is the Juliet dress by Claire Pettibone. It’s a knock out and is a very roomy sheath. It’s made of prettiness and rays of sunshine, but I’m not preggo and not rich. 🙁

  7. The seventh dress listed apparently also comes in white, ivory, and “pink” (a pale pink) as well as “champagne”, the color pictured. Also, according to a comment on that site a non-pregnant bride can wear it as well.

  8. My matron of honor was 8 months pregnant at the time of my wedding so we had to literally wait until the last possible moment to get her a dress since we really honestly had no idea how big she’d be by the time the wedding rolled around. I got married at the end of July and we went looking at David’s Bridal in mid-June and it arrived just a few weeks later. I liked a dress that had a chiffon material (David’s Bridal Style VC307) but we wound up picking a different dress (unfortunately not on their site anymore). It was the exact same thing but made out of jersey because it had the most “give” for my best friend’s belly. In some of the pictures, depending on the angle, you could barely tell that she was 8 months pregnant! No one would have guessed that she had her beautiful baby girl just 3 weeks later.
