One of our very own wedding Chicks is both knocked up and also just happens to be a bridesmaid in an up and coming wedding. We're not talking cute little five-month belly, by the time the wedding rolls around she will be major eight months pregnant.

Obviously, the other bridesmaids want to wear flatter figuring dresses that probably won't fit most us when were eight months pregnant. If you ever been pregnant then you know that when your eight months pregnant, you feel like an orca. Trust us, you don't look like an orca you do look beautiful it's just the overall feeling that most of us get around that time in the pregnancy. So, finding a dress that will fit/look cute and go with the other bridesmaid dresses was a tad challenging.

Tip #1If you are a bride and one of your bridesmaids is pregnant, the biggest tip we have for you is let your bridesmaid dresses be a flexible pallet. Choosing a very specific pattern or style will make it hard for the whole bridal party to find something that fits. Stick with solid colors to leave endless options for your girls.
Mismatched bridesmaids look fabulous and everyone can find a dress that matches their body type. Pink Blush Maternity has a plethora of options and colors to match any wedding style and color. This sleeveless, chiffon maternity gown below is $109. The perfect price. Because let's be honest she is not wearing it again.

Sequined bridesmaid dresses are all the rage and still is an option if you have a pregnant bridesmaid. Consider using a service like Rent The Runway like the bride and her bridal party did above. This particular Badgley Mischka dress has some stretch and accommodates a bump. Bonus! This glitzy dress retails for $650, but your bridesmaids can rent them for $90.
Your bridesmaid is not only cashing out all this $$ that comes with being a bridesmaid, but she’s spending a ton left and right on hospital bills, new baby furniture, baby clothes. This is your special day, but being mindful of choosing something that’s not going to put your girls in debt is always a good rule of thumb. Bun in the oven or not.
