Finding that perfect wedding dress is hard enough as it is, but imagine not only having to cater for you but also for the baby bump.
Although some brides opt to have a standard wedding dress, in four sizes bigger so they can cater for the growing life inside them.
Others choose to have a specially designed maternity dress, which could be more comfortable on the day. And it seems many designers have woken up to this fact, creating dresses especially for pregnant brides, some subtly hiding the bump and others making it the focal point.
And the good news is there is not a bump disguising smocked meringue in sight
Yes there are still those tutting traditionalists (think your great great aunt Mabel) who believe it is wrong, but we say don’t hide it, wear it with pride.
