We’re going to be honest with you: Maternity dressing woman is hard. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be the most stylish wedding guest while you rock your baby bump! Dressing for a wedding while pregnant is all about finding a silhouette and fabric that can accommodate your changing figure.

The good news? You’ve got options. From affordable dresses you’ll wear once or twice and then donate to figure-flattering and stretchy styles that will take you from maternity to post-partum with ease, and even ready-to-wear styles that are a far cry from “maternity” wear, there’s something out there for every expectant wedding guest. So figure out the dress code and get to shopping! (Not looking to buy? Check out Stitch Fix and Le Tote’s maternity rental collections. Their stylists will have your bump dressed to the nines!)
