4 Sources for Stylish and Affordable Maternity Wedding Guest Attire

Being pregnant during the summer months presents a number of challenges, but one that can be particularly frustrating is that it coincides with wedding season. Even though you won’t be “the” woman of the hour, you are likely to attract some attention so you’d probably like to find something that flatters your bump but doesn’t break the bank. Here are four sources to help you be a stylish mama-to-be at any summer nuptial!


RENT THE RUNWAY 

If you’ve never tried it before, Rent the Runway is a great option for wedding guest attire in general because you can rent a designer dress at an affordable price. What’s even better is that many of their styles are bump-friendly as well. Use the search filters to narrow down your choices: under “Body Type” simply click “Bump Friendly” to reveal A TON of stylish options ranging in style from day wedding to cocktail to black tie gowns.  

The site also offers a section called OUR RUNWAY! where previous users provide helpful reviews of the dress. Many of the reviews are from pregnant women who will post what month they were in when they rented the dress, how much they sized up from their non-pregnancy size, and pictures of themselves wearing the dress so you can get an even better idea of how the dress will fit. The site also offers impeccable service and will swap your dress in time for your event if the size you ordered doesn’t work.  


GILT

If you are still into designer labels but don’t want to pay premium price, check out some of the flash sale sites like Gilt.com. Popular designer maternity brands to look out for include: JoJo Maman Bebe, Momo Maternity, Rachel Pally, and Tea Bags Los Angeles Maternity. Gilt.com often has these labels at up to 70 percent off.   


PINKBLUSH MATERNITY 

PinkBlush Maternity is an amazing site for trendy maternity clothes at an extremely affordable price point. Their dresses are great for expanding the life of your maternity wear because they can easily be dressed up (think bold earrings or a statement necklace) or dressed down (hello comfy sandals!) depending on your needs. Be sure to follow them on social media where they will advertise flash sales.  


ASOS

ASOS is a UK based “fast-fashion” site but don’t be deterred by all of the young 20-something hipsters on the homepage. This website also has an ample selection of cute, high quality maternity clothing ranging from super trendy off-the-shoulder dresses to classic Kate Middleton-esque knee length cocktail dresses.  


So grab your mocktail and hit the dance floor, Mama!
