I didn't get married at around 20 weeks, but if it's your first baby (your uterus expands for the first time)then you there won't be much alteration needed for the dress, it shouldn't take from the design or fall of the dress. You'll just need it to be let out to give you room to the front

i got married at 30w - needed a reasonable amount of alteration!! but if you were asking if id do it again, i'd say no way, i was so stressed and exhausted and i always wonder is that why bubs had such awful colic when she was born. sorry to be negative, but i do wish someone had told me before i decided to go ahead with the wedding. :wv

Heya, Congrats! I got married at 16wks. But my body hadn't changed at all really at that stage apart fron fuller boobs. However, three weeks later there is noticeable changes (literally this week) However, if its your first and your dress is empire line with a flowing or flowy type dress, I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep trying it on!!! Best of luck

Hi there My friend got married at 20 weeks and bought her dress with this in mind. She picked an empire line dress and got the dressmaker to take out the zip fastening at the back and convert it into a lace-up back. It worked perfectly and she looked gorgeous. From personal experience, i'm around 18 weeks now and have a definite bump but it's my boobs that are the problem. They've become huge and were the reason i had to stop wearing some of my normal clothes quite early on. But, your dressmaker should be able to let the top of your dress out a bit to accommodate any changes. Best of luck!
