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. Wow all these dresses are beautiful! I may end up getting the second one if the one I have coming doesn’t have the room I was hoping. I ended up ordering a non-maternity dress that hopefully is big in front. This is so helpful though! Thanks all!

  2. I find the promotion of a Chinese Design Piracy .com like Light in the Box on a site like this one a bit disturbing. One photo promoting them would have been enough. Companies like these are literally putting Indy Designers and Local Boutiques out of business and they exploit their workers and YOU the consumer. They’re finally banned from Etsy, so please OBB’s think twice before ordering from them.

    Last gown in the list is a Nicole Miller btw!

  3. Links to pictures of maternity wedding gown: Swedish fashion journalist and writer Ebba von Sydow pregnant at her intimate civil ceremony wedding at the end of January last year. Pictures were published on her blog for Swedish public service television (SVT). I think she’s super cute! Her baby girl was born in early April.

  4. I have a month to prepare for a beach elopement and I’m four months pregnant. An old friend, who, bonus(!) owned a bridal shop for years took me shopping. Here’s what we looked for (and thankfully found 🙂
    -a dress that fit my Boobs, with room to grow
    -A CORSET (check out Maggie Soretto (??) for the flexibility that a growing pregnant body needs
    -Simple design around any areas that will need to be altered (altering bead work is time consuming and expensive)
    -a really good seamstress who you can schedule for a ‘last minute’ fitting
    – and, in my case bc time was an issue, a dress that I could buy off of the rack (no time to order, we’re running away to get married!)

    20% of brides are expecting! As much as I wanted to find a fun offbeat dress on my own, I am so happy I went through a shop with the expertise I needed to find the perfect dress!

  5. My sister just got married at 5 months pregnant(this is her third daughter so she was showing quite a bit) and wore a gorgeous figure-hugging red satin dress that looked a lot like the satin one pictured above. It was absolutely stunning

  6. Im getting married on 26 January next year. I’ve just found out a few days ago that I am pregnant and completely overwhelmed by it all. Im not sure whether I should postpone the wedding or have it earlier. Im so worried about my dress and the wedding.My dress is a corset top with a full skirt… Everyone is over the moon about baby but I cant stop crying. Is this normal?
