1. When to Shop for your Maternity Wedding Dress

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

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

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
