Maternity Wedding Dresses

By John Jones

As a little girl, did you dream about the perfect wedding? If you did, chances are you pictured yourself in the perfect wedding dress. Now that you are expecting a baby you may worry you can't have that perfect wedding or perfect wedding dress. But with so many beautiful maternity wedding dresses currently available your dream dress may be more of an option than you think. Just make sure you keep in mind some of these tips for purchasing a gorgeous maternity wedding dress and you will soon be the bride of your dreams.

It can be difficult when the style of bridal gown you seek is not what is predominantly available. Brides who want less revealing dresses still want something that looks current and is flattering, and it can be daunting indeed to find anything that meets all those criteria. One bright Wedding Dresses onlinespot for brides who do not want to wear a strapless gown is the beautiful wedding dress worn by Princess Catherine. Thanks to her, we are going to be seeing a lot more wedding gowns with sleeves.

Second, decide what color you want. Traditionally, white was chosen to represent purity and "maidenhood." In modern society, white simply represents elegance and sophistication, so feel free to wear white if you want to. Also, if a white wedding dress isn't what you pictured, feel free to wear color. The great thing is, there are no set rules regarding maternity wedding dresses. If you opt to wear colors other than white, shades like ivory, champagne, silver, blush pink, and light pastels look chic and modern. Choose a color you love or stick with a traditional white gown.

For brides who simply prefer classic over sexy in a wedding dress, there are some very nice options available. A classic bateau neckline gown with a tulle skirt would be a lovely choice. Add some elegant pearl bridal jewelry to play up the 1950s inspiration of this style. If you prefer a gown with sleeves, it is a simple matter to add cap sleeves, three-quarter, or long sleeves to this neckline. Another option is to add a fitted bolero jacket. It would be beautiful to wear a lace bolero for a special detail. You could even have the lace beaded with pearls to complement your pearl bridal jewelry set. If is not sleeves that concern you, but rather low cut necklines, take a look at one shoulder gowns. They are very chic, and tend to be cut high enough across the front that nothing is revealed.

Too much cleavage can be a major challenge for well endowed brides. If you want everyone to focus on your happy face rather than your ample bustline, a more modest gown is a must. But be careful to avoid dresses with very high necklines like bateau necks. Yes, they will hide your cleavage, but you will also look like you are nothing but bust from the neck down! A better solution is to choose a dress with a flattering neckline, and have the designer raise the neckline as needed to tuck everything in. V-necks are particularly flattering on fuller busted brides, as the straight lines are minimizing.
