After the initial thrill of seeing the engagement ring on her finger, one of the first thoughts a bride-to-be has is: Time to go dress shopping! That in itself is a major deal, but it takes on an extra layer of complication and preparation if you're pregnant and looking for a wedding gown. Suddenly, it's not just a matter of going to the bridal salon and asking to see the dress you've had on your Pinterest board since you were in college.
When you're wearing for two, so to speak, there are certain details to consider in order to find a dress that looks gorgeous and feels comfortable on your wedding day. You'll definitely want to let your bridal consultant know of your pregnancy as soon as possible, particularly if your wedding date will be falling in the middle of your third trimester. Then it's a matter of finding the best style for you (do you want to cover up your belly or flaunt it?), determining how many fittings you'll need, and making sure you have all the right extras, such as undergarments and shoes.
To get an expert opinion, Romper spoke to Heather McReynolds, divisional merchandise manager at David's Bridal, about what brides should know about dress shopping if they're expecting. With this knowledge, you'll be saying yes to the dress of your dreams in no time.
