Choose the right silhouette to flaunt your bump as well: Channel the star on your big day by rocking a look that showcases your bundle of joy, just remember to find the right fabric. Silk jersey, English netting and some laces will have elasticity to allow a bit of give and stretch to take shape of the silhouette and hug a 'happy hump.
Always size up: Usually, it takes four to six months to get your wedding dress once you order it, which means your belly will have grown exponentially by the time you finally slip into the white gown. To ensure a proper fit, you'll want to carefully study sizing charts provided for the dress you're considering. The general rule of thumb is to add an inch to each measurement for each remaining month of pregnancy from now until your wedding date. Once you do the math, see where you end up on the designer's sizing chart and order a dress one size larger.
Embrace extra panels and corsets: Don't freak out if your final fitting day arrives and your dress is too tight. There's an easy solution: panels and corsets. Ordering a yard of the identical fabric from your gown designer will get the materials ready in preparation for an expert seamstress to do her magic. By adding a large panel in the closure of the gown in place of the zipper or the buttons and securing with a corset, you'll get a little growing room as well as cinch in the smallest part of your waist. It's literally the best way to change the fit of the dress up until the very last minute.
Keep it simple: There's no need to go overboard with an intricate, over-the-top gown or tons of statement jewelry for pregnant brides. You need to remember that your bump should be thought of as an oversized accessory; don't try to compete with it.
