Maternity Dresses

Brides Often Ask

Can a wedding dress be let out for pregnancy?

How can I hide my belly in a wedding dress?



The most popular choices attempt to combine sexy maternity wedding dresses with cute maternity wedding dresses. This is achieved by focusing on the femininity of the bride’s bust, shoulders, and neckline while allowing for motherly modesty below. These particular samples are drastically different but perfectly demonstrate the grace of this balance.

Maternity Wedding Dresses With Sleeves


Long sleeve maternity wedding dresses provide the opportunity for extra drama and detail. They also provide added warmth for colder seasons or the desired textured patterns for boho brides. This is also a great choice for traditional themes by adding a touch of formality without being too much.

Boho Maternity Wedding  Gowns


Boho themes are all about non-traditional spirituality and a connection with nature. These bohemian and vintage maternity wedding dresses feature plenty of rich textures and flowing fabrics. You can also enjoy the option to add a shawl and other wholesome accessories that create a sense of whimsy and wonder.

Lace Maternity Wedding Gowns


Nothing transforms a maternity wedding dress from simple to glamorous quite like lace. Brides can choose lace texture from top to bottom, a strategically placed accent, or a focus on the neckline for added sensuality. A newer trend we love is the tattoo effect that makes it seem like the lace pattern is applied directly to your skin.

Beach Wedding Dresses For Brides


The beach is the place for baby bump brides. With comfort being a major concern, the beach allows you to ditch the shoes and don maternity beach wedding dresses that feature light, sheer fabrics. Just make sure you have access to plenty of water and shade.

Maternity Simple Wedding Dresses


Last but not least are simple maternity wedding dresses. These silhouettes can be classic or modern, and fit into virtually any wedding theme. Simple wedding dresses are very appropriate for every season. We adore this sleek, minimalist approach to wedding gowns that allow the bride’s natural beauty shine.
