    Yeah, I tried to avoid things that do custom designs. When I was a wedding consultant I saw some horrible dresses come in from those sites. I'm tempted to just buy the dress anyway and dress it up :haha: Maybe I can just find something similar with a fuller bottom or maybe more sparkle.

    Yeah, I'd just look around for something like that, it doesn't need to be maternity, I wore a non maternity dress to my SILs wedding when I was 24 weeks with twins! So looked almost full term, it was maxi style which helped but just look for something with a little give and you will be fine.

    If you love the dress, go for it! At least if you get something you love you'll wear it again :)

    I feel you as I'm faced with a similar problem. My brother's wedding is the end of Nov and formal as well. Thankfully, his fiancé is wonderful about it and doesn't mind if what I wear isn't as formal since I will be 32 weeks when they get married! I found two dresses at motherhood that would work for me (pre-preg sz 14 US). They aren't as formal but not so casual that they would look out of place. His fiancé actually has a gown she offered to let me have that I may wear instead, it is an empire waist with lots of fabric so despite not being maternity at a few sizes bigger with some minor alterations it should work.

    I don't know where in OH you are but might check Gabriel Brothers if there is one near you. My local store had a few gowns that would have worked but weren't available in the right size.

    I just found my dress yesterday at Target! They have bridesmaid ones online and there was a returned one at the store in my size! It was marked like half off too! It's a nice flowy satin gown. It's really nice and fits great! As long as my boobs don't get too big I could prob wear this my whole pregnancy.
