*What to Wear
For pregnant brides who want to hide their growing tummy, an empire waist dress with a lace or tulle overlay is a smart choice. Not only will the empire waist highlight the smallest part of your torso, but the nature of the fabric will create a light illusion of the lace as a beautiful design, taking the focus off the lower portion of a bride’s figure.
So, you can choose, ideally, a traditional empire line. The empire gown is the most popular style of maternity wedding dresses. The waistline of this dress is located right under the breasts so the attention can be easily drawn away from the belly. This style is an excellent choice for brides who are in the first half of their pregnancy. When choosing an empire line, make sure you are buying off the peg, that it is a maternity dress. You also need to make sure there is going to be enough fabric catered for in the pattern over the bump, and also to make sure that the length is correct.
Then, i think ball gown type wedding dress is also great.
Brides who are pregnant in their last trimester can go for a pleated wedding gown. Even though this type of dress is not normally an ideal choice for full-figured women, it works perfectly for pregnant brides because it emphasises the belly. For brides who really wish to show off their baby bump, body-hugging sheath dresses are an ideal choice.
Another style suitable for brides who are not looking too pregnant yet is the A-line dress, which may minimise the appearance of a swelling belly by drawing the eye up to the top point. For a touch of classic elegance, pregnant brides may also opt for Grecian styles because their flowing appearance looks great around a baby bump.】
