Maternity Wedding Dresses: Beautiful Styles

Updated on December 18, 2010

Times have changed since your grandparents walked down the aisle. It’s not unusual to see pregnant brides saying “I do” anymore, and there’s no reason pregnant brides shouldn’t look every bit as dazzling as chicks without a bun in the oven. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to just pop down to your local bridal shop and find something fantastic. Oh, sure, you’ll find a dress – but it’s unlikely to dazzle. That’s where Sarah Houston comes in. An incredible designer, her bridal couture isn’t prejudiced; she has a stunning line of maternity wear that could easily make the other brides wish they were pregnant as well. Take a look at the following gowns and see if you don’t agree.

Style: SHM-003

This is my favorite. Take a look at those gorgeous roses. I’m not what you’d call frou-frou, but I’d make an exception in this case. It’s fit for a fairytale, and I love the way the straps sit loosely on the arm. Beautiful dress.

Style SHM-016

This is another gorgeous dress, and it looks like something you’d see on Athena herself.

The empire waist makes this look soft, elegant and extremely feminine. Light and airy, this dress is perfect for a summer wedding, or an exotic beach location.

Tip: If you're one of the many women concerned about displaying her arms, consider trying a shrug made of the same material, or a nice, sheer shawl to wrap around your shoulders.

Style SHM-008

This dress really looks innocent, and reminds me of something you might have seen back in the 1970s. It just has that Goldie Hawn feel to it, for me.

I love the flower detail, and the dress’s simplicity is perfect for an informal or formal wedding. It’s particularly well suited for something out of doors.

In my opinion, a shrug would not work as well with this type of dress, nor would a shawl, so if your arms aren't in the shape you'd like them to be in, you may want to reconsider this one.

Style SHM-015

This dress is very elegant and drapes softly across the body. The center rose is lovely, and the silk stripe makes the entire dress just a tad left of the usual.

The gown trails just enough to make you feel like a princess, but not so long you need to worry about people trampling it.

Much as I like this dress, some may feel it's a tad too sexy for a pregnant bride. I don't really have an opinion either way, but you may want to consult the groom for his opinion before purchasing this one.

Style SHM-007

I’m not usually a big fan of this much lace, but I think it works with this dress because the majority of it sits along the trim. This dress is romantic and playful, and could fit into a variety of wedding themes.

If you go with this dress, make sure you’re happy with your legs, because a good portion of them will be showing. And make sure you're not allergic to lace - some people break out in hives from it. Not really something you'd want to deal with on your wedding day.

It’s a shame more designers don’t cater to pregnant women, especially since the number of pregnant brides continues to grow every year. If you happen to have a favorite designer for maternity bridal gowns, feel free to mention them in the comments below.
