20 Beautiful Dresses For Pregnant Bridesmaids

Since the time we were little and played dollhouse, my best friend and I planned every detail of our weddings together. However, nobody realizes that real life isn’t ‘Bride Wars’ and best friends don’t tie the knot together or have babies at the same time: while one plans to get married in Egypt near the Nile, the other has to run around in her second trimester checking out pregnant bridesmaid dresses! When you are ‘expecting’, do not expect things to go according to your expectations!

Early last year when my best friend told me about her wedding plans. However, to my horror, she postponed it to December when I would be two trimesters down! There was no avoiding it: I would have to shimmy her down the aisle with my swollen tummy! Though I had a tough time figuring out how to show ‘my blessing’ and look elegant at the same time, when the day arrived it was quite a success!

These vintage lace maternity bridesmaid dresses are gorgeous! With rumpled trim and removable sleeves, you can turn the dress around for a non-slit appearance. How cool is that!

2. Leyah Gown

Can you believe that there are forty different ways to shawl the top? While the average length is 60″ under the bust, you can even flick the outfit backwards and don it like a skirt flaunting that bump!
