A Guide to Maternity Wedding Dress Styles - Learn How to Choose the Right One
There are several maternity wedding dress styles available. Designers understand a pregnant woman's desire to look great on her big day. It's important to choose a dress that looks great on you and feels comfortable. Whether you're planning a formal or informal wedding, read this guide to learn how to choose the perfect dress!
It's important to choose the right maternity dress, and to have a good dressmaker help you prepare for the big day. The biggest question in regards to choosing a maternity wedding dress is "how far along are you going to be on the day of your wedding?" Whether it's in one month or six months, you need to have a tailor or seamstress on hand just in case the dress needs any last minute alterations.
When it comes to bumps, no two women grow exactly the same. You can't predict what your stomach will look like in the upcoming months. Designers are doing whatever they can to make gorgeous wedding gowns. You can look fabulous, no matter how far along you are. All you have to do is know which dresses to avoid.
For starters, stay away from any wedding dress with a tight bodice, as it will only emphasize your middle. Tight dresses are also uncomfortable. However, just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you have to dress modestly. There are some amazing two piece dresses and short, maternity dresses. A satin strapless top can look great, just as long as you choose an A-line bottom.
Another thing you need to consider is the ceremony. Where are you going to be married? In a church? A formal gown is ideal for a religious ceremony. The beach? A simple, less structured dress is the best choice. An informal indoor wedding? A tea length wedding dress might be a good choice for you. Look over various styles and choose the right one for your wedding.
If you're unsure whether to wear a strapless or strappy gown, think about your maternity bra. Will it look okay with a strapless top? Will you be comfortable with a strapless bra, or do you need more support? If you've gained weight in your arms, you might want to cover them. Bolero jackets look great with strapless gowns. Last but not least, think about the fabrics. Which fabric will you be most comfortable in: lace, silk, satin, chiffon, or cotton?
