They even had a caricature artist at their reception, what a cool favor and activity all in one! Take a look at some of our favorite photos from this wedding:

We're so excited to help all of our moms-to-be find a fabulous dress to celebrate with amazing brides-to-be. We know brides often want all of their bridesmaids to rock the same style of dress, and we always want to keep the comfort of expecting mothers in mind. So here are some of our favorite recommendations to keep in mind when you're shopping for your maternity bridesmaid dress.
One of our first recommendations for bridesmaids who are expecting, is to check one of our maternity styles. These designs all have stretch lining, which means they are comfortable and expand easily with a growing baby bump.
The Perfect Match
We want to help you create the ultimate look for your wedding party, and which means we want to offer as many options as possible when one of your bridesmaids is expecting. Right now, we have a slightly more limited color palette because we are using brand new fabrics and want to make sure they are dyed beautifully. As we test new dyes, we will offer more colors in these styles.
With our maternity styles, our goal is to create looks that are similar to our standard line of bridesmaid dresses, but they are not an exact match. If you're looking for all of your maids to walk down the aisle in the same dress, we have created more maternity friendly styles that are not included in our maternity line. A key difference is that these designs do not feature the same stretch lining.
We've even tailored our Francesca skirt to drape beautifully over a growing belly.
Our Kaitlynn has wide straps for extra support, which can give you more room in the bust.
If you're looking for a short dress, our Annabel dress is a beautiful style with extra supportive halter straps! These three styles are offered in most of our fabulous shades and can be worn by the entire wedding party!
Your Perfect Size
Finding your perfect size can be a challenge, but always remember that you can always contact our amazing customer service team for recommendations! But, it can still be a little difficult to estimate how much your body will change during this time. Which is why we recommend ordering no sooner than 10 weeks before the big day.
When ordering a dress from our maternity line, we recommend only measuring your bust and hips to find the closest match on our size chart. Since all of the dresses have stretch lining, we'll make sure your get a comfortable fit. If you decide to choose one of our recommended non-maternity bridesmaids dresses, you will need to measure your bust, waist and hips. We also suggest ordering a custom-sized dress with your measurements, and having it tailored to fit your body closer to the time of the event.
Our rule of thumb is that your belly may grow about 1 inch every 4 weeks. We recommend waiting until you're ready to order before measuring the largest part of your waist. And then add to your waist measurement according to that estimation. You may want to add a couple of inches to your bust measurement if you're seeing a lot of growth. If not, staying with your current measurement should be fine.
We want all of our bridesmaids to feel confident and beautiful, and that doesn't stop when you're pregnant! There's nothing more beautiful than a beaming bridesmaid with a mother's glow! Don’t forget to reach out to our amazing customer service team if you need anything! We know that every bump is unique and our stylists are here to give you advice and help you find your perfect dress.
We couldn’t be more in love with this wedding! Ali and Jordan’s mountain top nuptials are a breathtaking example of how your venue can set your wedding apart from the rest. We also think the elegant combination of Mulberry and Dusty Rose dresses creates a gorgeous bridal party that is perfect for a fall or winter wedding. We are also huge fans of having a rockstar send off in a modern Mustang! Check out some of our favorite photos from this truly fabulous big day below:

First look photos have become a modern staple for many couples. These photos usually show the groom seeing the bride for the first time in private (with your photographer, of course). But, this doesn’t mean the groom has to simply close his eyes, while the bride walks towards him. There are some fun ways to get a super cute photo that also incorporates your personal style.
1. Holding hands
This is a traditional pose that also makes for a super sweet photo. You can hold hands around a door, corner, or even a tree!
2. She walks up from behind
Another fantastic photo can be a simpler choice where the groom turns around and the bride walks up behind him. This way, you can see both of your beautiful faces in the photo.
3. Hugs from Behind
You can always make sure your photographer gets the perfect shot of you hugging your groom when you walk up from behind him. This is a more intimate option for couples who don’t just want to do the simple shoulder tap.
4. Bridesmaids Surprise
If you want to surprise your groom when you’re walking down the aisle, but still want to capture that feeling of excitement before your ceremony, try a first look with your bridesmaids. Make sure you can see all of your maids in one photo to get the full range of super sweet shocked faces.

One of our most popular bridesmaid styles is the Haleigh. This is a universally flattering design that features delicate pleating details through the bodice and open V-neckline. The floor-length design makes it the perfect dress for any season or venue. This dress can fit in with ease whether you’re having a relaxed wedding at the beach or a dramatic ceremony in a ballroom.
The strap details through the back of the design will certainly show off your shoulders, while the A-line cut of the skirt will highlight your waist to perfection. The lightweight chiffon will also create delicate movement that is comfortable and romantic. Take a look at some of our favorite ways these beautiful ladies have worn this gorgeous style:
