    Me and my bf were planning to get married next summer (hadn't set a date but just wanted a really small thing!) But now I'm pregnant we've decided to bring it forward and I've decided I want a lot more than orginially planned!! (I've got to phone my dad tonight to see how much he's willing "contribute" towards it! lol)

    Anyway I was wondering, has anyone here got married whilst pregnant? And if so what did you do about your dress? We're aiming for possibly February, and I'll be about 6 months by then! When's the best time to choose a dress?

    I'm going to try and get it arranged for afternoon incase I still have morning sickness and we'll stay at the hotel that night but won't be having a honeymoon. Has anyone got any tips for making the day more comfortable? I won't be having a huge dress as I'm aware of how heavy they can be and due to having M.E (which causes fatigue and muscle problems) I use a wheelchair, so I need something I can sit in comfortably and that wont catch on the floor or wheels. I think I'm actually most excited about decortaing m wheelchair lol! The're such ugly things!!!

    We haven't set a date or chosen a venue yet but I've got one in mind and am going to check it out in the next few days :)

    Anyway, any tips would be most appreciated :)

    Both my sister and sister in law got married while pregnant. My SIL wore an ivory skirt suit that was maternity and my sister wore a Monsoon empire line dress. Both looked fab! There are lots of maternity dresses if you want a big do with a proper dress.

    Thanks everyone :)

    I am going to look at dresses tomorrow, I have been on monsoon, debenhams and M&S websites and it looks promising :)

    I've definetly chosen the venue now, and my dad's okay with the price we've working out so far :)

    I LOVE some of the dresses I've seen, the most costing £150! I don't really like traditional dresses and as I'm in a wheelchair it would be a bit impractical.

    I'm soooooo excited. We were planning to get married anyway but have had to bring it forward cus of the baby :D (My dad is really old-fashioned about things like that!)

    Anyway, thanks everyone and no doubt I'll be asking loads more questions! lol
     
  7. I'm getting married on November 1st and should be 9 weeks along at that time.
    I get an early scan done on Friday to solidify the dating.
    I am really hoping I still fit in my dress!! I tried it on for the first time just a week ago.

    Doubt this will help much but here goes....


    I got married at 25wks....just the day after getting out of hospital and having my labour stopped the week previous:blush:

    Mine was a registry office job. I wore a lovely duck egg blue dress from Monsoon with a lovely organza wrap and a pretty tiara. No bridesmaids just a maid of honour and a best man. A quiet meal in a restaurant afterwards with family and friends, no disco and a honeymoon in erm....my Nanna's caravan near Blackpool:rofl:coz I wasn't supposed to go too far from my hospital because of my prem-labour the week earlier (I was right near a hospital in blackpool and only an hours drive from my own hospital).

    We had a lovely wedding day, hardly and stress and Blackpool was erm....Blackpool but the weather was nice and it was good to get away as I'd been cooped up in hospital for a week.



    Good luck babe:hugs:
