Pregnant bridesmaids

Bridesmaids, Wedding Dresses

We've heard brides worry about what their pregnant maid-of-honor will wear to the wedding. The bridesmaid dress selected doesn't come in a maternity size and the bride doesn't love the maternity options she's seeing in stores.

Well, we found a few options we think the bride and mom-to-be will be happy with at A Pea in the Pod and Motherhood Maternity.

Wedding Wisdom: If you've told your bridesmaids that they can select their own dresses for the wedding, don't forget to give them some parameters as to what type of dress will be okay. Floor-length or knee-length. Strapless or covered arms. Black or a specific shade of one of the colors in your wedding palette. This same "rule" applies to pregnant bridesmaids. Many maternity brands sell special occasion or evening wear dresses in their collection so they shouldn't have too much trouble finding the perfect dress.
