I have a family wedding coming up in July, I'll be around 26 weeks then. Does anyone know where I could get a nice dress to wear to the wedding? Should I be looking for a maternity dress or would I be able to wear a "normal" dress, a few sizes up - will that fit ok over the bump? I have no idea of what size I'll be by then! I'd like to get a long maxi dress or something, so i can wear flats for comfort :) I have no idea where there are shops that do occasion maternity wear. I live near Dublin so any recommendations would be great!

I bought a maxi dress on Ebay, very cheap and turned out to be quite a nice dress! Have "real-life" pics of me wearing it if you want to see them I can email you. Oh and btw I was 30 weeks when I wore it. Link: http://cgi.ebay.ie/Chic-Maternity-Fashi ... 20b10b5808

I think actually a non-maternity maxi dress would be grand! Maxi dresses are lovely and 'in' :-)

I second the maternity section on Asos.co.uk. They've a good selection, and are cheap. i bought a couple of dresses from them already. although I think you'll be fine with a non maternity maxi dress at 26 weeks

Oh Fifibell I was only looking at that dress the other day i have a wedding in July that DH is groomsman for so would like to look nice for a few pics with him all decked out in his finest but I'll be huge & 36 weeks pregnant at that stage :hic Was that dress comfy? Is it silk? I never seem to see anything "weddingy" enough on Asos maternity.
