Maternity glamour: 6 lovely options when there’s a baby on board

Maternity smart: Glamorous options for bridesmaids with a baby on board
Master cool and glamorous baby on board wedding dressing with our pick of gowns from these maternity specialists. Verona lace gown by Tiffany Rose

Maternity wedding dressing can be super glamorous. Our top six from leading occasion specialists Tiffany Rose and Séraphine are perfect for bridesmaids and brides who want to dress in style and keep their cool with a bump on board

It can be a near impossible task to find a maternity dress that makes your mother-to-be bridesmaid look her radiant best while also flattering the other members of your crew. We suggest you avoid a ‘one dress for all approach’ – instead, celebrate the difference. Two great labels to try are Séraphine and Tiffany Rose.

Séraphine has been a great favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge (among other high-profile mamas to be), and its bridal and occasion ranges offer elegance with a fashion-forward twist. We’re particularly keen on its pale occasion gowns – event appropriate and super flattering to mother and bump.

British designed and made label Tiffany Rose also has a loyal celebrity following and has some great choices in lace, as well as patterns and florals. If in doubt, classic pale neutral gowns make a lovely choice for bridesmaids and you’ll find chic styles in both shorter and full length. Of course, all these dresses would also be a perfect romantic and event-appropriate option for any bride with a baby on board.
