Beautiful v-neckline

Details to love

  • Lace detailing to the shoulders
  • V-neckline and back
  • Detachable sash

Description from Seraphine
A feminine French lace with a touch of vintage inspired glamour. The A-line cut gives it a flexible fit which means you can use it before, during and after pregnancy. The detachable sash can be tied in a bow at the back to accent the empire line and feminine look.

The V-neckline is great if you got a larger bust (which a lot of us do when we’re pregnant). It makes your neck look long and slender giving you good proportions. The smaller bust should aim for a high cut V-neck.


Maternity wedding dress with lace bodice

Details to love

  • 100% silk skirt
  • Lace Bodice

  • Subtle stretch panel & keyhole back
  • Side zip for easy dressing

Description from Seraphine
This short maternity wedding dress is perfectly designed to flatter your figure throughout your pregnancy. The lace bodice covers your shoulders in a boat neckline revealing just a bit of skin in the back. The cocktail dress comes with a beautifully jewelled empire belt that will draw the eyes to your slimmest point.

Tips! If you got a small chest a boat neckline gives you great proportions.

Description from Pinkblush

This dress has a great fit that hugs you in all the right places. The boat neckline will give your shoulders a wide look which will in turn make a nice big butt look perfectly proportional. It’s made of 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex. Not the most exclusive materials but it makes the dress flexible. And the price doesn’t hurt.

Silk and chiffon

Details to love

  • 100% silk chiffon
  • Attached jewelled belt
  • Sweetheart shape
  • Sheer silk flutter sleeves with keyhole back
  • Discreet stretch panels & side zip

Description from Seraphine
You might have noticed that I’m a fan of the empire waist. I think it gives a beautiful pregnant silhouette from all angels no matter the size of the belly. It’s kind of a sure thing when you don’t know how big you’re going to be exactly. This silk and chiffon dress comes in a blush shade instead of white. The wedding dress trend for 2019 allows for both classic looks and more colour so don’t feel compelled to wear white.

Short maternity wedding coats

From Seraphine

This subtly textured tailored coat is made in luxurious woven cotton. It fits great with any of the above short maternity wedding dresses draping to the knee. You can also wear it after the pregnancy with a cocktail dress for other special occasions. A subtle bow detailing and empire waist will give you a feminine and chic style.

From TiffanyRose

If you know you’ll need something a little warmer to and from the wedding this tailored coat might be what you’re looking for. The full-length sleeves give you extra cover and warmth in a luxurious woven cream bouclé fabric, flecked with blue, pink and silver flecks to introduce subtle sparkle to any day or evening look. Faux pockets are piped at the seam for attention to detail with concealed front fastening to fit and flatter your bump.
