Long gone are the days that walking down the aisle with a baby bump was deeply frowned upon. Back then, a lady getting knocked up before marriage meant that nuptials had to be arranged quickly. The usual pomp and festivities that surround the union of two people was a luxury not to be expected. The haste that accompanied the planning process directly translated to an uninspired event.
Not any more. Today, a bride is at liberty to have her grand day anytime she wants. She can do so at any stage of a pregnancy without fear of reproach. The pregnancy glow expected of a soon-to-be mother is evident in most wedding photos today. It is very commonplace to see a bride lovingly cradle her beautiful bump in front of her guests.
With the pressures of wedding before a pregnancy shows loosened, the next thing that worries most heavy brides is how they feel physically. Let’s face is, as much as pregnancy is a beautiful thing, most women get crazy over how much weight they put on. Feeling sexy is not the easiest fete to accomplish when at this stage.
Thankfully today, wedding dress designers are working overtime to ensure that pregnant brides get to feel confident and stunning as they make their way to the alter. Far from being like the conventional maternity dresses, wedding gowns geared towards them are just as fetching and elegant as their counterparts. Details are keenly considered and the outcome is a well-designed gown worthy of a soon to be mum.
