Wedding Wednesday: Maternity Wedding Fashion (Guest Post)

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

In the following guest post, keep in mind that every gown can be altered for modesty in the most creative way, like adding a lace overlay (lined if you're looking for full modesty) over a strapless dress. Read about three beautiful styles that suit a woman who's expecting, and then read my tips for making just about any dress modest.
Although many expecting women feel like their growing belly is an inconvenience when picking a dress for a wedding, in some ways a pregnant body can actually make the process easier. Moms-to-be can happily check a list of worries off of their list when being fitted for a gown, as there’s no last minute dieting, re-fittings, or worrying about what kind of undergarments will have your body pulled taunt and tethered. Instead, pregnant women can relax and breathe easy in a graceful, flowing gown that celebrates their beautiful feminine curves.
1. The Floral One Shoulder Chiffon Maternity Dress from David’s Bridal.

This dress features a beautiful ruched, one-shoulder bodice covered in large rosettes, a flattering empire waist and a flowing chiffon skirt. Perfect for a mom-to-be, the one shoulder design provides the glamour of a strapless gown but with added support. The ruched bodice and empire waist are flattering to any body type, but especially that of an expecting mother’s. This dress should be worn with an up-do to best show off the rosette detailing on the shoulder. With its simple and classic style, this dress would look amazing contrasted with bold eye makeup and dark red lipstick.

2. The Marie Dress from Maternity Bride

This gorgeous ivory dress features a one sleeve, bedazzled detailed, and backless design. This dress offers a mom-to-be all of the comfort she needs with all of the elegance she wants. The one sleeve will provide her with full support, while the backless design and bedazzled details help to create an incredible bridal entrance. This dress would work well with either long flowing curls to compliment the chiffon gown, or an up-do to show off the backless design. With all of the incredible details of this dress, it would be best complimented with simple, natural-looking makeup.

3. The Cream Lace Wedding Dress from Seraphine Maternity

This striking dress features a scoop neck, quartered sleeve, and lace design. Designed for a mom-to-be who want to stay classy, the scoop neck and detailed cream lace design of this dress are very elegant. At the same time, the meek skirt length is feminine, creating a unique look that no one will be able to forget. To best display this design, this dress should be worn with an up-do. Both natural and bold make-up would look appropriate with this dress, depending on the wearer’s personal taste.
Fashion-isha's Tips For Covering Up Your Gown For Modesty:
Never be afraid to ask if the boutique can get you matching fabric from the manufacturer of the dress so you can simply add an overlay, sleeves, or length to your gown. But don't just stop there. Get creative and introduce new laces and textures to already existing dresses. Be your own designer. If you add simple material to the top and sleeves of the dress, adorn them with some buttons and/or lace touches so it looks like the dress was made that way. You can even add embellishments to a plain old shell worn under any dress. Sew on lace or beads that match your dress so that everything flows. There are also lots of options for glamorous coverups like white fur stoles for winter or chiffon wraps for warmer weather.

Have a beautiful Wedding Wednesday!

Such great Ideas, it is very sweet to be getting married pregnant as the "love baby" is present...sometime I look at our wedding picture, and think, but where is our sweetest baby boy ((: but having said that, another reason why to marry pregnant is that most women just "glow" and look even better than before...I loved being pregnant...
