When a close friend or relative is getting married there’s a pretty good chance that you may be asked to be a bridesmaid. It’s always flattering to be chosen to take on such an important role on someone’s special day. For an expecting woman though, being asked to be one of the attendants at a wedding can present some unique challenges. One of those is finding maternity bridesmaid dresses that are both flattering and fit with the style of the wedding. Traditionally the bride’s attendants all wore the same gown in the same color. This in itself was usually a sore spot in the wedding preparations as the dress would look great on some women and less than perfect on others. With today’s more modern and relaxed styles, it’s common for all the women to wear something different. This is good news for the expectant mom as she can choose from a variety of maternity bridesmaid dresses without having to be concerned with finding one in a particular color or style. Finding a dress that is appropriate for wear while taking on this important supporting role in a wedding can be tricky. Many maternity shops have hundreds of different office and evening looks for the pregnant women. What they might not have is maternity bridesmaid dresses. Most women who are in a bridal party aren’t expecting so the market is obviously very small. A store that may sell these dresses is a traditional bridal store. Women come in all shapes and sizes and the typical bridal store will carry not only a wide selection of brides’ dresses, but also many different styles for the attendants. Even if they don’t have any maternity bridesmaid dresses on display it is certainly worthwhile to inquire if they can order one in. Custom made dresses are often the choice of many of those involved in a wedding. This is true of bridesmaid, flower girl and mother of the bride dresses. If the other attendants are indeed having their dresses crafted from the ground up, it’s easy for the seamstress to incorporate maternity bridesmaid dresses into their repertoire as well. In this case the entire bridal party can actually wear similar dresses, with the expectant mother’s adjusted to accommodate her extra bundle of joy. Women who are expecting can expect to watch their bodies change at a pretty alarming rate. It’s fairly common for a woman to feel comfortable in a piece of maternity wear only to find it doesn’t fit a week later. That’s why it’s important to purchase a dress that will fit on the day of the wedding. If you are only two months pregnant when you look at and order maternity bridesmaid dresses that you’ll be wearing when you are eight months along, buy the size you anticipate being in. You don’t want to face not having a dress when it’s time to walk down the aisle.
