The Pregnant Bride: 10 Chic Maternity Wedding Dresses

By michellehorton |

Our friends over at LilSugar have a great slideshow up today about pregnant wedding dresses. Anyone planning on walking down the aisle with a baby bump?

I happened to get married when I was 8 months pregnant, but there was no fairy-tale wedding gown or elaborate cake cutting. I wore a brown dress that I had worn a million times, put white flowers in my hair and pledged my vows with a total of 8 people in the room.

Romantic, I know.

The thought of planning a wedding while I was planning a future life was too overwhelming for me, but a fancy, traditional wedding is a dream for so many women — pregnant or not. And with these maternity wedding gowns, you don’t have to settle for a so-so dress that you’re not in love with. (We all know maternity wear isn’t the easiest to love.)

Take a look at our favorite maternity wedding dresses:

If I would have seen this silk charmeuse Gillian wedding gown (and could have afforded the $1700 price tag), I would have had a full-blown wedding in a heart beat. In fact, all of the Tina Mak Maternity Wedding Gowns are simply stunning.

The crystal beading and organza overlay gives The Astrea ($950) a breezy yet elegant look.

If you don’t want to draw attention to your baby bump, The Charlotte’s layered tulle and empire waist is a flattering cut. ($875)

Not comfortable walking down the aisle in pure white? (I wasn’t.) This cream-colored Heidi maternity wedding dress ($950) has a vintage, classic charm.

For a more budget-friendly maternity wedding dress, this Asymmetrical Wedding Gown ($520) will make you feel like a (pregnant) Greek goddess.

    We got engaged in August. I bought my dress in December, at which time I made fun of maternity wedding gowns. Our wedding was in June. I found out I was pregnant in March. Fortunately, the wrap style of my dress mostly hid the still relatively small bump, but I’ve joked since then about the universe having a somewhat ironic sense of humor…
