Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses with Style and Comfort

When its time to select your closest and most beloved friends to be your bridesmaids, most brides never consider what theyll do if their planned bridesmaid happens to be pregnant at the time. Luckily, maternity bridesmaid dresses can be bought or made so that your friend who is expecting can still take place in the festivities and still look the part. Finding maternity bridesmaid dresses may be a bit more difficult, but with a determined bride to be and pregnant friend, it can be done!

Unless you are getting your bridesmaid dresses made, you may not be able to find a maternity bridesmaid dress that matches other dresses exactly. But, you should be able to match color, length, and general style pretty well so that your expectant friend doesnt stand out or feel uncomfortable, yet everyone will still look great in pictures and coming down the aisle.

Shopping for maternity bridesmaid dresses should take place a bit later than one might traditionally buy a bridesmaid dress. Because no woman knows exactly how big her belly will get and when, its best to put off the purchasing of the dress until the last moment. But, that doesnt mean you have to wait long to shop for the dress. The bride to be and expectant bridesmaid should go shopping months ahead of time and try to find a dress that is comfortable for one and acceptable for the other.

Maternity boutiques are probably the best place to shop for a dress. Although the dresses that can be found at the stores are not made specifically for weddings, they usually carry formal wear for the expectant mother and they can help anticipate belly size so that the right dress can be bought a bit ahead of time. These stores may also have a bigger selection of dresses to choose from so a desired color or style can be found more easily.

Many expectant mothers are modest about their belly, so shopping at a maternity boutique is a good idea so that the sales consultants can help select a dress that will hide the belly and make it less noticeable as she comes down the aisle as a bridesmaid. Maternity boutiques can also help flaunt and camouflage the appealing and not so perfect characteristics of just about any body shape.

A seamstress may also be a good resource for perfect maternity bridesmaid dresses. A seamstress can look at a typical bridesmaid dress and tailor one to fit a pregnant body, if the bride is looking for uniformity amongst her bridesmaids. This may also be a cheaper option, as maternity formalwear can be quite costly.

Most large department stores also sell formal wear for pregnant women, and these would work as maternity bridesmaid dresses, too. As long as it fits well, is comfortable, and the expectant mother is comfortable, pretty much anything will work!

Maternity bridesmaid dresses can be just as beautiful and work well with the overall theme and style of the wedding, just remember that an expecting woman may need just a little bit more comfort and support than other bridesmaids.
