Planning a wedding can be a challenging and exciting experience, but planning a wedding while pregnant can add an extra layer of complexity. Here are some tips and advice for those who are planning a wedding while expecting.
Consider the timing of your wedding carefully. You and your fiancé should weigh your options and family’s opinions regarding whether you get married before or after you’ve given birth. If you’re hoping to get married during your pregnancy, you may want to schedule your wedding during your second trimester when you’re likely to have more energy and be more comfortable. If you’d like to get married following your pregnancy, ensure you allow enough time for you to recover from giving birth and have your dress fitted prior to your wedding day.
Be mindful of your comfort as it relates to clothing, shoes, and pacing when planning your wedding. Choose a dress that is comfortable and flattering to figure (pre- or post-birth), and opt for comfortable shoes. Last but not least, make sure to have plenty of breaks throughout the day to rest and stay hydrated.
Food & Drink
Find fun and flavorful options for you during your wedding day! It can be quite easy to overlook incorporating or excluding the items you’ll need to avoid during or after your pregnancy for your wedding day. Make sure you find one or two uncaffeinated mocktail options and ensure the food at your wedding has plenty of options you won’t need to be weary of eating.
Priorities & Delegation
Prioritize the elements of your wedding that are most important to you and your partner. You may not have the energy or resources to plan an elaborate wedding while pregnant, so focus on the things that matter most. Hiring a wedding planner and delegating tasks to friends and family that fall lower on your list of priorities will help with your stress levels without compromising on the details.
Finally, make sure to prioritize self-care. Self-care isn’t just baths and time to yourself, it’s delegation and doing things you love! Remember to take breaks when you need them, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest leading up to and on your wedding day.
Planning a wedding while pregnant can be challenging, but with some careful planning and self-care, you can create a beautiful and memorable wedding day for you, your partner, and your new family.
