Planning a wedding while pregnant may seem like a daunting task, but finding the perfect maternity wedding dress doesn’t have to be!
Check out our top 5 tips for bridal shopping with a growing bump, then browse our collection of stunning maternity wedding dresses.
1. When to Shop for your Maternity Wedding Dress
Get the Look: Lace V Neck Maternity Bridal Gown
Ordering a custom-made bridal gown from a traditional boutique takes time – sometimes up to 9 months! In the case of a maternity dress, this is time that you most likely don’t have.
The good news is, at Seraphine, our dresses are expertly tailored to grow with your changing curves and are ready to go as soon as you need them.
So whether you choose to invest in advance or are looking at the last minute, a Seraphine dress guarantees a flexible, flattering fit through every stage of pregnancy.
2. Where to Find the Perfect Dress
Get the Look: Embellished Grecian Maternity Gown
You may be able to find something suitable at a traditional bridal shop, but to avoid any uncertainty, we recommend opting for a specialist maternity brand.
Here at Seraphine, we offer the full bridal appointment experience in some of our Flagship stores.
At our stores in Kensington & Leeds, we will open our boutique out of hours so that you can enjoy a one to one session with one of our expert maternity stylists. Call in advance to make your appointment & prepare to meet the dress of your dreams!
3. How to Hide the Bump
Get the Look: Ivory Silk & Eyelash Lace Maternity Dress with Ivory Cropped Peplum Maternity Jacket
If you’re looking to downplay your pregnancy, a flattering A-line silhouette can work wonders.
Fitted at the top, this style flares out from the empire waist, highlighting your slimmest point while allowing plenty of room for your budding bump. Anything with lots of volume through the skirt or a lace overlay is guaranteed to help disguise your midriff.
And don’t forget to use accessories! A well-placed veil, jacket or a statement neckline will help to draw attention up towards your face & away from your bump.
4. How to Show Off the Bump
Get the Look: Ivory Lace & Silk Maternity Gown
If you’re out & proud with your pregnancy & looking for a wedding dress that will show it off & celebrate your growing bump, we’re here to help!
Why not try a sexy fitted style like one of our chic knee-length dresses in stretch lace. Or else draw attention to the bump with some embellished beaded detailing at the empire waist.
5. Don’t Forget the Wide Fit Wedding Shoes
Get the Look: Radiance Wide Fit Bridal Shoes – Sargasso & Grey
Once you’ve found your dream maternity wedding dress, complete the look with the perfect pair of shoes.
You may find that your feet start to swell during pregnancy. If this is the case, don’t despair – Sargasso & Grey has got you covered!
Designed with a wider fit, padded insole & arch support, these beautiful wide fit wedding shoes offer incredible comfort without compromising on style.
Your feet will feel fantastic from those first steps down the aisle to the last dance of the night!
