Getting married is one of the most magical days in any woman’s life, and the fact that you get to walk the aisle with your baby inside you is truly special. However, being pregnant on the big day will naturally stop you from doing some of the things that other brides can. Preventing your fun and excitement should not be among them.
Pregnant brides will face some unique challenges. When you focus on the following factors, you won’t go far wrong.
Looking good makes us feel good, and every bride deserves to feel beautiful on her big day. This guide to dresses for pregnant brides will be very useful. When supported by the right hair and makeup, you will look and feel as stunning as you deserve. All eyes will be on you during the ceremony, and the ability to strut with confidence can only enhance your day. Another top tip is to invest in another outfit for the evening. When you’re pregnant, comfort is of huge importance.
The wedding day will fly by at a mile per minute, and is one of the busiest times of your life. However, being pregnant may mean that you need to take things at a slightly slower pace. Meanwhile, you should think about travel and the practicalities. Choosing a venue that allows you to hold the ceremony, afternoon meal, and evening party may be best. If nothing else, it enables you (and the guests) to spend more of the day actually celebrating the marriage.
For many brides, missing out on the champagne is one of the big disappointments. However, using mocktails can give you the social elements without getting drunk or causing damage to your baby. This is another reason to think about investing more in your wedding band and other entertainment. When you’re having fun from start to finish, the lack of alcohol won’t bother you in the slightest. Better still, you’ll be able to remember all of it too.
The Special Requirements
Pregnancy can do strange things to your body. Temporary food allergies can surface while smells and chemicals can trigger vomiting too. Whether it means picking a specialised menu or avoiding the use of flowers doesn’t matter. You need to feel comfortable and confident on your big day. With a little creative thinking, such as using plastic flowers, there’s nothing to stop you creating the look you desire. Whether doing the DIY approach or using a wedding planner, your needs are vital.
The honeymoon is something that every newlywed couple looks forward to. It can be especially beneficial towards the end of your wedding night as you’ll still have something to feel excited about. Depending on how far pregnant you are, it is perfectly safe to fly. However, if you are worried about going abroad, there are plenty of romantic places in Scotland and other parts of the UK. Either way, nothing should stop you from having the vacation you need to celebrate your love.
Oh, and one last thing, I’m not pregnant. I was just discussing the subject with some friends, and thought the issues we covered come in useful. I hope it has.
