Maternity Wedding Dresses Are Hard to Find; Here Are the Best Places to Start
Finding your dream wedding dress can be quite the mission, but if you’re on the hunt for the perfect bridal gown while pregnant, chances are you’re having a somewhat trickier time of it. While going down the bespoke route is of course one option—see our expert guide to commissioning a wedding dress—it may not suit all budgets. You could also check out some of the floatier options in core wedding dress collections (look for A-line shapes, empire waists and light fabrics like tulle or chiffon), which may skim nicely over your bump. But if you’ve already scoped out bridal boutiques with disappointing results, fear not—the search doesn’t end there. To help you find just what you’re looking for, we’ve used our sartorial sleuthing skills to discover the best places to shop for your dream maternity wedding dress—whatever your style, theme or trimester.
Based here in the UK, Tiffany Rose is an expert in special occasion maternity dressing and counts A-listers as well as royals among its clientele. Despite the star-studded fan club, however, its wedding dress collection is super affordable. Our favourites include the romantic Verona Gown, £199.
Bridal designer Tina Mak specialises in maternity wedding dresses, and though the collection may be small, it’s the place to head for fashion-forward touches like the (optional) black accent on this strapless silk chiffon Jean gown, £980. Based in the U.S., Tina Mak ships internationally.
If you’re looking for a colourful wedding dress, try the Maya Maternity occasion collection. Pastels are the key feature, while you’ll find floaty styles, sequinned sleeves and tulle skirts galore. Conveniently, carries a great selection, like this , £120.
If you’re looking for something fairly traditional, try Spanish maternity label Paramamá. The brand ships internationally and offers an impressive collection of midpriced wedding dresses, from strapless gowns to short lace frocks. We’re big fans of this pretty cap-sleeve dress (£352).
If a white gown was never for you, try bridesmaid or special-occasion dresses in the section. From dusky pinks to plenty of embellishment, you’ll be spoilt for choice if “glam party dress” is more your style. We’re currently loving this (£90).
Don’t be put off; Two Birds Bridesmaid may specialise in bridesmaid dresses, but the brand’s signature styles can be wrapped in endless ways to accommodate a growing bump and also come in cream or white. We’re fans of the Lace Ball Gown, £350.
Perhaps not the first place you’d think of when wedding dress shopping, fashion label Little Mistress does a super-affordable, trend-led maternity collection with several bridal-esque styles each season. The sequin bodice on this £65 has caught our eye, and to make things even easier, you can shop via .
Another bridesmaid focused label, U.S.-based Dessy (you’ll find several UK stockists on its website) still has great options for brides who aren’t looking for traditional gowns. This is a perfect example, though it’s a tough choice between the silver and rose-gold versions. ■
