I struggle to find an outfit for weddings at the best of times but when I was pregnant it was nigh on impossible. I attended a number of weddings with bump but could never find anything I liked. I was even that annoying bridesmaid that was six months pregnant by the time the wedding came around and had to have an emergency dress change to fit in!
You want to look super lovely all whilst realising those gorgeous dresses you covet just don’t quite look right on your bump or are awkward if you are breastfeeding. If like me you have a host of wedding invites waiting for you then hopefully I can help with my pick of my favourite special occassion maternity outfits.
The team rave about the Topshop maternity collection for on trend styles. This gorgeous wrap dress is a particular favourite of mine. The pretty ice blue colour coupled with the tailored look is definitely going to be one you love wearing. The tie side means you can adjust it as bump grows too.
As a cover up I rather love this Herringbone blazer which is cut to fit your growing bump and would look equally good with a pretty dress or a pair of jeans meaning you would get loads of wear out of it.
You can count on ASOS for an amazing array of choice. In fact there is probably too much! And their dress selection is definitely one the team would be raiding. Everything from pencil to pleated, classic to bold prints. We’ve picked a few of our favourites but do take a peek if you are looking for something different.
I adore this pretty nude floral detail midi dress. In fact if they did it in non maternity I would probably be snapping it up!
I do love a bit of navy and this simple scallop edge dress for £28 is really lovely. It is on the more casual side but with the right accessories I think it would look lovely. Plus you could happily wear it with sandals for the summer or ballet pumps for work and it doubles as a nursing dress after birth.
You can’t go wrong with a bit of glitz! This sequinned wrap dress is a really flattering shape and length and would look great for a more glam affair.
This is a really pretty sleeveless dress from Mamalicious. The blush colour is perfect for a summer wedding and features a bit of glitz on the shoulders. The empire style and pleated skirt will be super flattering on your bump.
Seraphine are a great brand for wedding guest outfits. This floral dress is more pricey than some but I’m sure you can justify it somehow!
The rich colour of this pleated skirt dress with it’s pretty sparkly jewels make it perfect for an elegant wedding. The little sleeves and layered top are a great shape too.
Marks & Spencer
Marks and Spencer was one of my go to’s for maternity clothing. Off topic but their jeans were great!
If you prefer a long dress then this orange maxi is a great choice for summer wedding’s. Plus it doubles as a nursing dress so you can wear it though the summer months or pop a chunky cardi over once it get’s cooler.
It is definitely worth checking out Mothercare for maternity clothing. They have some lovely pieces and I think the prices are really reasonable. Online they seem to have a ridiculous selection with lots of brands like Mamalicious too.
This petrol blue lace number is rather swish. It’s tightly fitted but I like that with a bump. The longer sleeve means you don’t necessarily need a cover up either.
I love a classic navy lace dress and I think this would see you through a number of occasions without feeling repetitive. You can add different necklaces or pretty cardigans to change the look around if needed.
How about going for something a little bit different and opting for a jumpsuit. This is also great as a nursing outfit. Style it up with statement jewellery and a cute blazer and I think this would be a great wedding look. Just make sure you can easily get to the toilet!!
