Alfred Angelo saved the day

My MOH/ sister will be 7 months prego the day of my wedding. SO finding bridesmaid dresses have been quite a challenge. My other bridesmaid is a very tiny, size zero girl.. so it wasnt easy. The only place I could find maternity in clover, and at a reasonable price, was Alfred Angelo. My MOH is wearing a floor length, very plain, clover dress, but we added a sunshine sash around her belly for some color.
My other bridesmaid purchased a dress that came with a sash so it tied the two together.
I never thought a pregnant bridesmaid would be a hard one to dress.
They are style numbers 6450 for tiny bridesmaid.
and 6334M for prego.
Both dresses are in clover, with a sunshine sash around the middle.

Just wanted to offer some advice for any of you w/ pregnant BM's. I worked as a wedding consultant for 3 years and was an 8.5 mos pregnant MOH for my sister's wedding (delivered DS 13 days after the wedding). While many designers don't offer maternity dresses or a very limited selection, you can opt to choose a BM dress that is A-line and an empire waist. Typically I suggested ordering the dress 2 sizes larger than the BM's measured size (if she was only couple months along) and in extra length. The seamstress will alter the dress at the bust - where the seams are, raising the dress up so the hip area now becomes the belly area. The empire is the easiest to alter although other styles can be modified as well - the key is where the seams are.

We wore Bill Levkoff - originally we were all in a 2pc dress but I ended up in style 830

If it is possible, it is best to wait as long as possible before altering the dress. I know with a Disney wedding that isn't always feasible.

prego BM's

Thanks for the reply with Prego BM dresses. My sister and I looked into the A-line empire dresses that you were talking about, but we just couldn't afford to buy the dress and pay another 200 dollars to have it altered! Thanks for the advice, I may be prego by the time my BF gets married..

I think I was pretty lucky with my bridesmaid dresses. Alfred Angelo style #6483 They are almost exactly like my wedding dress, but without all the fancy stuff. Both my wedding dress and the bridesmaid dresses are strapless, pickup skirts, and lace-up in the back. I found the dress before the sales clerk was back with the fabric swatches from the different designers. All in all, it was pretty amazing. Here it is!



The coloring is weird in the picture, but it's supposed to be a kind of light cinderella blue. It will have a white sash around the waist that will tuck into the back seam where the lace-up part is.

wvtinkgirl - loving that dress.


here is what i'm wearing for my sisters wedding next year - i love it in pink, but her colour scheme is very light lilac. I love this dress. It was between this and another one which i hated (but didnt tell her that obviously), but in the end she decided on this one so i was well chuffed

Ours were by Jasmine. One of my BMs was pregnant, so I liked that they had a maternity style. Plus, the color was just what I wanted.
