Beautiful Bridesmaid Bumps: How to find the perfect maternity bridesmaid dress

When it comes to your bridesmaids, and choosing the perfect dress for them, we know it is a delicate task to get right. You want to consider everyone’s style, shape and size while ensuring you achieve the look you want to fit in with your overall wedding day vibes. Then add into the mix that one of your besties is pregnant and blooming, and it suddenly becomes a more important job that requires careful consideration for their comfort so they can be with you for as long as possible on your special day.

You are probably wondering how to go about achieving success, and thankfully, we have plenty of experience in guiding our brides-to-be, and their bridesmaids, on the do’s and don’ts of maternity bridesmaid dressing. So, grab a glass of something nice, and read our hints and tips to ensure a happy pregnant bridesmaid.

Firstly, we recommend having an open conversation with your friend to get a good understanding of what she has in mind, any concerns she has, and perhaps any specific requirements that you ought to be aware of. From here you can then begin doing some research and getting inspiration on what kind of bridesmaid dress look and feel you would like to suit your overall theme. If you have more than one bridesmaid, we do recommend speaking with those such as the pregnant ladies first, as you can then ensure you aren’t making plans for the whole group that then have to change once you find out your bestie-with-a-bump needs sleeves.

Once you have your brief set out, you can start to explore our range of bespoke curated bridesmaid dresses. We recommend checking out our all-star dress Florence by the talented Rewritten team. A dress that offers ultimate comfort due to its adjustable wrap-around closure and floaty fabric. It will allow for any last-minute size changes and can even be loosened as the day goes on. 

If your bridesmaid wants something a little strappier that hugs her growing curves in all the right places, why not opt for the Keisha Maxi dress from Pretty Lavish. She will feel super sexy as the A-line cut and cowl neck offers ultimate flattery and is oh so forgiving. 

For those who want to make the style their own, we think the Porto dress from Rewritten really offers a chance to show some personality, with a versatile bow detail that can be worn in a number of ways and adds that bit of wow with its one shoulder straps.  

Whichever of these gets you excited, we recommend always organising a try-on session in the comfort of your home (or mother’s/ friends) so that you can get all your loved ones together and try on a selection of dresses and sizes to ensure that they will feel comfortable and at their best. Our try-on sessions can be booked up until two weeks before your rental period, we do advise not leaving it too late but appreciate you will want to see what size will fit best without a long spell between try-on and the day itself. Of course, if things change, and your girl is going to need to size up, then just get in touch and we will work with you to see what is possible.

The at-home try-on also enables your bridesmaids to check what undergarments they may need, how to accessorise their dresses (which can be a great option to distract from the bump if desired by adding a beautiful hair piece of statement necklace for example) or check if the flat comfortable footwear works with the overall look.

Hopefully, you are set now to begin your search for the perfect maternity bridesmaid dress, that will fit within your budget and meet the needs of your dearest, making her feel beautiful on your big day. But if you still have questions, or need some help, get in touch with our friendly team now. Finally, remember that comfort is key, and involving her in the decision-making process will ensure you are both happy and get that task ticked off your to-do list pronto.
