Talk about an exciting couple of weeks for former Hills and Dancing With The Stars' contestant Kristin Cavallari. The 25-year-old reality star told PEOPLE that she has rekindled her flame with on-again-off-again beau and Chicago Bears player Jay Cutler, and that they are engaged—and expecting!

The couple originally put their engagement on hold last summer before getting back together in November, just before the holidays. Details of their pending wedding are still under wraps but we thought we'd get started on helping her pick out a few dress options that would look stunning on her petite frame and growing belly.

All three gown above have an empire waist with soft layers of chiffon and tulle that give her (and her baby) a little wiggle room. —Stephanie Davila
