Maternity Wedding Guest & Bridesmaid Dresses. Fun, Classic & Gorgeous Fashion Ideas.

I am lucky enough to be a wedding guest this summer at one of our best friends wedding day. I am going to be 9 months pregnant – cue dress panic. I have been searching online for dresses for what feels like ages and I finally made a couple of purchases ready to try before committing to wearing on the day.

I have left it perhaps a little late, but there are some brilliant sale bargains to be had at the moment with plenty of stock still available too. So I thought it may be helpful to those of you expecting or even looking for maternity bridesmaid dresses to share my favourite finds.

I have stayed to the classic dress instead of skirt/trouser/blouse options for simplicity of style. But these can be fabulous attire options too. Dressing for a bump is not easy. You want to feel like ‘you’, being confident and showing off your personality. The highstreet is full of brilliant fashion options and there are also many black tie classic dresses on most of the shops I have sourced these dresses from.




I love a floral frock, add simple accessories and you will look amazing at a country summer wedding.

Favourite Finds, English Roses ~ Floral Bridesmaid Inspiration

Hi and welcome to Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, a daily wedding blog providing daily wedding inspiration in the form of real wedding reports, engagement shoots, inspiration shoots and much more. You can stay updated via my facebook page, or through twitter or you can sign up to the RSS feed. Don’t forget to check out the vendor love page for some amazing wedding suppliers.

I’m really excited to bring another favourite finds post to you, today with picks from the amazing wedding stylist The Bijou Bride. Who has taken the summer’s biggest trend… florals… into the wedding industry…. take it away Alex….


At Bijou my wedding motto is that ‘inspiration comes from everywhere,’ you don’t have to solely look to wedding magazines to find your big day style. The Spring/ Summer 2011 catwalk collections were awash with country garden prints and all manner of flora and fauna motifs. Just look at these current ad campaigns from United Colors of Benetton (shot by Josh Olins) and D & G (shot by Mario Testino), which I’ve taken as inspiration for this piece – English Rose Bridesmaids.
