Baby On Board – Maternity Bridesmaids’ Fashion

pregnant bridesmaid


So, your bridesmaid has announced that she’s expecting and you’re a little anxious about getting her a dress. Panic not, because we’ve tracked down some stylish and affordable options for her and her tiny plus one.

It can be daunting for any bride to find themselves faced with an expecting bridesmaid, especially if you have already chosen and ordered your bridesmaids’ dresses. If you have, one option is to take the dress to a dressmaker and see if it can be adapted for a growing belly. If you have chosen an A line or empire line dress, this should be pretty straightforward. However, if you are yet to choose your dresses, this opens up a whole new wardrobe of opportunity to you. Scroll down for our top maternity picks.


There are many bridal and bridesmaid designers with maternity lines, such as Dessy . Their Alfred Sung duchess satin tea length dress in concord is pictured above left.

This deep ocean coloured wrap dress by twobirds, pictured right, is another great choice, as the deep green colour will work well on both pale and sallow skin tones. (Your bridesmaid will thank you for this if she’s feeling a bit peaky on the day!)

How stunning is this silver screen long gown from Tiffany Rose? I want one, and not for maternity wear! This is something your bridesmaid could even wear again, if she’s only in the early stages of her pregnancy.

This ‘Evelyn’  floral stretch lace dress, pictured right, is really classic. Also from Tiffany Rose.


Maternity doesn’t have to mean boring. Just look at this silver butterfly embellished maxi from Seraphine.


This pretty black polka dot chiffon dress with long sheer sleeves from JoJo Maman Bebe is sweet and simple.


Ooh, love this statement gown! Red will definitely make sure your maid’s not a shrinking violet, whilst the amazing cut will mean the best comfort around. Florence maxi from Isabella Oliver.

BABES WITH BABIESPretty in pink, this Tulipwood strapless gown from Babes With Babies comes with optional straps.

How fun is this primrose yellow chevron print dress? Also from Babes With Babies.


You can always count on good old ASOS to get you fashionably through any situation, including your wedding. We love their maternity section, especially this pearl blue maxi and black bodycon dress.



Do bare in mind your poor bridesmaid’s feet on your wedding day. Asking her to spend the day in 4 inch heels won’t go down well, so let her choose her own funky pair of flats to wear on the day.

We’re loving…

Slingback sparkle with bow from Zara.

Dandy slipper in lush coral from Penelope Chilvers.

Mustard Daisy T Bar from Agnes & Norman.

60’s leopard slingbacks from Boden.
