6 Maternity Wedding Dresses for Real Moms

We've discussed maternity wedding gowns before, from the tasteful to the terrible. I know I am in good company with my awesome prenatal nuptial gown. I went searching for CafeMoms and other brides-with-bumps and came up with these. Got one of your own? Let me know and we'll do a follow-up with even more!

Here I am, happy and huge, July 13, 2008. That's Penelope peeking out my lacy belly button. The dress is empire waist, but by the time we got to the big day, I needed to have it let out a bit -- a wizard of a seamstress turned the lining into some extra room on the sides, and nobody was the wiser!

Here's my friend Lisa from high school. She always, always looks amazing, and her wedding day was no exception -- bump or no bump, she had the perfect style for her city hall hook-up.

You have to trust me on this -- Anne is 6 months pregnant here! Doesn't it just look like a food-baby? Gorgeous, pg or unpg!

This is CafeMom Hoomom, who was having a difficult pregnancy (me too!) and even had several contractions during the service! "I dooo-OOOOOOOH!"

I just love this one, from CafeMom Graden_Daeani. The dress is so summery and light, and matches the joy on her face perfectly.
