Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses
So – you’re all excited about being a part of the wedding party but just found out you’re expecting. Congratulations!!! You don’t have to drop out of the wedding party though. There was a time when dress options for expecting bridesmaids were limited at best. Having a perfectly matched dress could be time consuming and expensive. Popular styles of bridesmaids’ dresses with maternity options were few and far between. A bridesmaid determined not to relinquish her spot in the bridal party would often be left with costly tailoring as the only option. She would have to order the same style dress as the other ladies in the wedding party but then pay to have it tailored and hope that her baby bump wouldn’t be bigger than anticipated on the day of the wedding. Thankfully times and options have changed.
An expecting bridesmaid will most likely have her hands full; one thing she shouldn’t have to worry about is the look of her bridesmaid dress. While alterations are still an option, that is not your only choice. Many of today’s bridal fashion designers are doing a great job keeping up with the demand for maternity bridesmaid dresses. They come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics. As a matter of fact lots of maternity bridesmaid dresses are designed to perfectly coordinate with the missy cut of the same style. Pregnant bridesmaids can have the same modern, gorgeous look as everyone else in the wedding party. This enables the bride to have all of her attendants perfectly matched, which is a beautiful thing.
The best thing about purchasing a maternity bridesmaid dress over purchasing a missy cut and having it altered is the guess work is eliminated. Just like designers of other maternity garments, the stylists who create maternity bridesmaids dresses have done their homework on the expecting female form. The majority of the time your pre-pregnancy size is your maternity size. For example, if you were a size 12 the day you found out you were expecting, your maternity size should be 12. The dressmakers have already taken the time to figure out how much fabric and what dimension will be needed to adorn your blossoming baby to be. And they all shopped happily ever after.
