Isabella Oliver Maternity Dresses

Baby Bump: Maternity Wedding Gowns

"First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage." Since that's not always the case and shotgun weddings are a bit dated, expectant couples can share the news and get hitched without hiding the bride's burgeoning belly thanks to the folks at Isabella and Oliver.

The designers have a special treat for blushing pregolicious brides — the fashionable maternity line is introducing wedding gowns that will flatter engaged mothers–to–be at more than reasonable prices.

Brides can choose from spaghetti strap, halter style and crossover necklines. As each frock has an ethereal glow, it's hard to believe the prices are so down to earth. The least expensive wedding gown runs a mere $240. At that amount, brides who aren't pregnant may want to order it!

Wow, I'm truly surprised at how scathing some of these comments are! I happen to be pregnant and getting married this summer. I haven't come across anything near as negative as what I've read here, and really wouldn't expect to this day and age. When it comes to standing "moral ground" anyway, isn't a shotgun wedding "better" than having a child out of marriage? I don't judge it either way. My boyfriend and I have decided to marry because my family (Catholics) is strongly suggesting it for the child's sake, especially my grandfather. Personally, I'd probably wait a while if it were all up to me, but I respect my family's opinion and see the benefits for my baby. However, I think a single mother can be completely succesful at raising a great child too! As for the dresses, I wouldn't pick any of those! If anyone is actually in need of a maternity wedding dress (isn't that what this thread was about in the first place?? lol) my favorite is . There are sooo few quality wedding dresses out there for pregnant women. These are beautiful and reasonably priced (around $800).

Whoa! This blog post spiraled out of control. But back to the dresses, I think all three are beautiful.

I'll just throw my two cents in to say I also felt a bit offended by some comments. Please don't assume all women feel the same about marriage, because there are many different and legitimate views. I for instance don't have dreams of getting married or wearing a white dress - I believe in committed and loving relationships, but personally think marriage is nothing but a socially admitted way of commitment. I've attended weddings and thought they were beautiful, it's just not what I want for myself. So please don't assume marriage is the only ultimate commitment. To go back to the topic, I like the top of the second dress. :)

LOL @ AliCherri1 comment. :rofl: Personally, I accept whatever decision the wedding couple makes, but I must admit, my jaw dropped when I saw these dresses (and their obvious implication). Uh, shotgun wedding??

foxie is right to a degree. Statistics do show that children raised in a single parent household (particularly by single mothers) do have it harder in life but a statistic becomes inaccurate when you do not list the other factors that influence it such as race, income level, education level, and location. A middle class single white mother will have it much better than single black mother living in the projects, or even a uneducated, poor white mother. This does not mean these women cannot raise successful children it just means the odds are against them.

I would not want to be an obviously pregnant bride. IMO it looks a bit contradictory. I would rather wait until after the baby was born.

I like the 2nd dress As for all the hullabuloo, the only thing I'd like to say is that the majority of single mothers are not teenagers...

Where were these dresses when I got married last year. Oh and I guess since I got pregnant 4mos before my planned wedding I'm a horrible mother. lol. Someone should tell my happy and healthy 4mo old son that his parents are evil because he was concieved before the wedding day. hahahaha

That's the point - it is personal to some people, myself included. Anyway, agreed, it's done.

Whiplash, it was a joke. You're all taking what SHOULD be a mature discussion and turning it into a catty spitfight. I'm citing social trends, you're all citing personal stories. I'm being fair, you're all taking things out of context. So since this is getting so sensationalistic, I'm outta here, spin doctors!

:rotfl: GirlC is WRONG about the dresses because she has a different opinion than you? That is both insane and hilarious. Girls, don't waste your time arguing with this person. :oy:

All of the dresses are beautiful! Ideal or not, there is no reason to not celebrate two people coming together and also celebrate that soon they will be three! :baby: I know plenty of people with both of their parents that did not turn out the best. Also, wonderful people raised by a single parent or their grandparents. What is important is the child is loved and cared for. Glad to see such a great discussion and please be sure to keep it friendly! thanks team

Once again foxie - it's all about opinions (dresses or marriage). Because you believe something something doesn't make it right or true and same for me. Freakonomics was entertaining but not to be held up as "The Truth".

I'm not going to admit that at all. You can think what you want and I will do the same. Honestly, and I hate to say this, right at this moment my son is better off because his father is not around due to unfortunate circumstances that I will not mention here. My son has plenty of male role models in his life, and yes, they won't be his father, but at least he will have someone he can always turn to. Ok, I'm seriously over this subject. I just realized that I don't need to prove to anyone that I, being a SINGLE mom, am a good mother and that my son has just has much chance as any other child to succeed in his life.

Girl- maybe you SHOULD start believing some things you read. Oh, and you're also wrong about the dresses... dress number two is by far the prettiest.

Stina, your efforts are admirable, but you yourself already admitted that to be married beforehand is ideal. It's a given that you're working doubly (if not more) hard to give your son a good life. However, you have to admit that his father's pathetic actions will have a negative effect on your son. That's not your fault, it's his father's. At least your son is lucky enough to have ONE parent who cares enough to pick up the slack, but many other single mothers simply don't or can't make up for the lack of a father.
