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

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

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

Zooey Deschanel debuts her New Girl in a Seraphine Nursing Dress!

New mum Zooey Deschanel stepped out looking stunning in a Seraphine maternity & nursing dress this week!


The newly married New Girl star went out for lunch near her home in Austin, Texas with husband Jacob Pechenik, who seems to be enjoying his new role as daddy, carrying their adorable baby daughter in her car seat. Zooey looked fantastic in our Black & Pink Maternity & Nursing Dress, which skimmed her trim post-baby body perfectly, cinching in at the empire line to make the most of her figure. It’s always exciting to see expectant stars wearing Seraphine, but it’s somehow even more special when they carry on rocking maternity clothes after the birth!

The stunning actress is known for her cute and quirky fashion sense, favouring feminine cuts, bright colours and stylish printed dresses. Explore our new range of printed maternity & nursing dresses and channel a touch of Zooey’s style!

It’s great to see the new mum out and about and looking so fantastic just weeks after the birth. She kept a low profile towards the end of her pregnancy, and as it turns out, she had an exciting reason. Last week she revealed that not only was she a new mum, but that she was also a newlywed, having married Jacob in a secret ceremony – how romantic! Though we must admit, we wish we could have seen her wedding dress!


Congratulations on your new family Zooey – you are looking fabulous!
