A good friend of mine recently got married. The event was twice as happy because she was pregnant. And I was thinking, this is something you don’t see so often in magazines. We recently published Marcel Pedragosa’s pictures of the Barcelona Bridal Week. There we see this amazing gowns for tiny bodies. So, what happens when for a while you loose you waist and suddenly is your wedding day? Or the wedding of your best friend? Here are some ideas.
For the bride
One of the things I like about the wedding dresses is that there is the option to create something special and unique that can represent who you are. When we talked about this with Teresa Helbig in this interview “I think being a woman helps me put me in the skin of the client and think about what I would use to feel pretty.” she explained to us. Her atelier and her passion to create beautiful things was really inspiring. To find someone who can help you create your dream dress would be the perfect start. So for your wedding dress if you are pregnant, the better is to choose something that can cover your chest area but at the same time celebrate your shape. Empire cuts are perfect for this. Since not everyone can afford a custom made dress, for less than $1000 you can have a beautiful runway dress by Rachel Zoe for example.

For the wedding guest
Cortana has as always a beautiful selection of dresses for wedding guests and brides of course. This one would work out well for anyone, but if you are pregnant it can be flattering and comfortable at the same time. The draped shape helps to show a big tummy with grace. The other thing I like about this dress is that is easy to combine with flats. I know, is common knowledge that you need to have a bit of heel to be more comfortable, but in my opinion a good pair of flats can be perfect for this kind of occasion. Play with statement jewellery to upscale the style. Silver plated earrings Dannijo Cortana Mali Fluid Dress Flats Rachel Comey Clutch Kayu Featured image Teresa Helbig
