You are looking for maternity bridal gowns, but can't find what you want. So you decide to get a regular bridal gown.
What if you bought a gown and later became pregnant you may wonder... Can it be adjusted to let it out?
These questions and more will be answered for you.
Yes there are! There are some designers who only design maternity wedding gowns. Then there are designers who make them part of their regular wedding dress collection.The styles range from full flowing style dresses to figure hugging stretchy fabric gowns.
Most brides however find a style of gown that will accommodate their tummy. The empire waist style, A-line and raised waist styles come to mind.
You can purchase a gown that has fullness in any amount you need at the stomach area depending on how far along you will be in your pregnancy.
It is best to find a maternity wedding dress if at all possible, or at least look at complimentary styles of wedding dresses for pregnant women. But sometimes this is not an option. So...
If you decide to go with a regular wedding gown instead of shopping for maternity bridal gowns... make sure you look at styles that will accommodate your stomach. Think about how far along you will be when you get married.
If you will be 7 to 9 months along...
If you are a pregnant bride wanting to wear a regular gown, and will be more than 5 months pregnant, it's a given fact that you will have to buy your gown big enough to fit your stomach. But this will automatically make the bust area too big.
So if you are going to wear a regular gown that might need altering...
Are you a bride who during your wedding planning found out that you are pregnant, and you have also already purchased your wedding gown?
If you don't want to look at maternity bridal gowns and want to use a gown you already purchased consider these points...
There are two ways to resize a wedding dress so that it is larger.
The latter is the best way to adjust your gown to make it larger, because in most cases the corset lace up back adds to the gown design. But not all wedding dress styles lend themselves to adding a corset lace up back. Again, consult with a sewing professional.
