What to Wear to a Wedding When You're Pregnant

Judith Jones

I ordinarily greet wedding invites with great sartorial delight, as I am always enthusiastic for the opportunity to don my fanciest of frocks. But for upcoming weddings now, it comes as quite a task. I’ll going into my sixth month of pregnancy, and not only will I have to formally dress my new burgeoning bump, but I will have to do so in unexpected weather (thanks, autumn). Insert anguished face emoji here.

Determined not to default to an oversize muumuu and negate all sense of personal style, I did what I do best as a fashion editor and scoured the market long and hard for the absolute best dresses that are equal parts comfortable, breathable, wedding-appropriate, and of course, impeccably chic. Note that not all these dresses are necessarily maternity, but they do give enough bandwidth for a baby bump. And lastly, don’t be afraid to play with accessories. A plain dress can look exponentially chicer with the addition of some standout earrings and a clutch.

So if you’re pregnant and have a slew of wedding invites this season, here are some dress ideas for you.

Black Tie/Formal
