PREGNANT & POSTNATAL BRIDESMAIDS
All our designs can be made to accommodate a growing bump, or a postnatal mama whether you have a bridesmaid who is early stages of pregnancy at your wedding right to almost full term or even recently given birth we can accommodate for them as best we can. There are various situations that we have encountered, and we have been able to work out a system where we can accommodate our made to measure service no matter the circumstances of your bridesmaids. Below are our most asked questions which I hope are helpful.
1. I have a bridesmaid that is due her baby just before my wedding, what should we do regarding her measurements?
In this instance it would be your bridesmaid’s decision as to what she you would like to do with regards to sizing of her bridesmaid dress, my advice is to have the dress made slightly bigger than her pre pregnancy UK dress size/body measurements. We would need the measurements for this dress 6 WEEKS before your wedding date, and you will receive the dress 3 weeks before your wedding allowing time for any potential alterations. If your bridesmaid has told you her amazing news early on in her pregnancy it is best to consider taking her body measurements before she starts to show so you have a guideline (if she is comfortable with this) and then 6 weeks before your wedding you can both decide if she would like to go off the measurements you already took or if she wants to increase or decrease any of the measurements.
We require 3 weeks production lead time on single dresses.
2. I have a bridesmaid that will be heavily pregnant at my wedding, what can we do?
In this instance we will need your pregnant bridesmaids’ measurements with your other bridesmaids 4-5 months before your wedding so that we have her accurate length, a guideline to monitor her growth. 6 WEEKS before your wedding we will just ask you/your pregnant bridesmaid to remeasure her BUST, UNDER BUST, BUMP & BUM to determine growth and establish how to cut the dress. There will still be room for extra growth in the dress with our signature maternity ruching (available in any skirt design)
3. I have a bridesmaid that is currently pregnant but due her baby a couple of months before my wedding, what can we do regarding her measurements?
In this instance we can leave the production of their dress until 6 WEEKS before your wedding, at which we will need her body measurements to make her dress. You will receive the dress 3 weeks before your wedding. We require 3 weeks production lead time on single dresses.
4. I have already ordered my dresses and my girls have been measured but one of my bridesmaids has just told me that she is pregnant, what can we do?
This isn’t a problem at all, we will just hold off with her dress in production, 6 WEEKS before your wedding I will just confirm with you/your bridesmaid her BUST, UNDER BUST, BUMP, BUM measurements and when re-confirming the updated measurements your bridesmaid can confirm if she believes she would benefit from maternity ruching in her skirt if she is showing a considerable amount, if she is not showing much 6 WEEKS before your wedding we can make the dress as normal just to the updated measurements
