Finding your dream wedding dress can be quite the mission, but if you’re on the hunt for the perfect bridal gown while pregnant, chances are you’re having a somewhat trickier time of it. While going down the bespoke route is of course one option—see our expert guide to commissioning a wedding dress—it may not suit all budgets. You could also check out some of the floatier options in core wedding dress collections (look for A-line shapes, empire waists and light fabrics like tulle or chiffon) which may skim nicely over your bump. But if you’ve already scoped out bridal boutiques with disappointing results, fear not—the search doesn’t end there. To help you find just what you’re looking for, we’ve used our sartorial sleuthing skills to discover the best places to shop for your dream maternity wedding dresses—whatever your style, theme or trimester.
If a white gown was never for you anyway, try the special-occasion dresses in the ASOS maternity section. From dusky pinks to plenty of embellishment, you’ll be spoilt for choice if “glam party dress” is more your style. We’re currently loving this Maya Maternity V-Neck Maxi Tulle Dress, £85.
Don’t be put off; Two Birds Bridesmaid may specialise in bridesmaid dresses, but the brand’s signature styles can be wrapped in endless ways to accommodate a growing bump and also come in cream or white. We’re fans of the Lace Ball Gown, £350.
