With upwards of 20% of women now expecting before they marry, the pregnant bride no longer has to worry about the “shotgun” wedding. Only a few years ago the wedding dress choices were extremely limited, and many brides truly had to compromise on their dream gown. However, times have changed and today’s ASAP wedding has a new definition when it comes to appropriate attire for a gown.
 
Thankfully, the days of the Maternity “Moo-Moo” and hiding the fact that the bride is pregnant are behind us. Even the once forbidden “white gown” has taken its rightful place as an acceptable color choice for maternity brides. Even though the planning cycle is at a quicker pace for most of these weddings, you finally have some choices and can select a wonderful designer gown. Today’s “Mother-to-be-Bride” can select from a variety of styles and fabrics. Designs range from those featuring full and formal, to sleek and clingy, leaving little to the imagination.
