Wedding Season is definitely upon us but if you’re pregnant, a new mum or breastfeeding it can be tricky to choose something to wear that fits the occasion as well as makes you feel and look great, let alone having the right gorgeous accessory that won’t be broken by little hands tugging or chewing on it!
We’re here to help, and have some amazing styling tips and gorgeous outfit looks for all of you new mums or pregnant mamas-to-be.
Most of all, we know you will want to feel good and be comfortable so choose a style that works for you and make sure you have those comfy shoes to hand – you could even take a spare of (flat) shoes with you…if you’ve been on your feet all day, you may just need to kick off the heels and let those dancing feet breathe a little in the evening!
Clothing-wise, choose something that fits and flatters. There are many clothing options on the high street but as you know, we love to support other independent businesses (especially those set up by mums who have experienced exactly what you’re going through and have first-hand knowledge of mixing style with practicality). So, here we show you some gorgeous outfits from Lily & Ribbon and RICIA Clothing, which we have paired with our pretty yet practical baby-proof Halia Rose jewellery to help you finish off your outfit in style.
We know you’ll want to wear something which flatters the bump, makes you feel fabulous and ultimately keeps you comfortable during the day. Lily and Ribbon have a gorgeous selection and these three maternity dresses are our favourites for occasion wear and wedding outfits for pregnant ladies.
The Brune dress is a super stylish dress with beautiful delicately raised glitter detail and the V neck also creates a longer upper body illusion and an hourglass silhouette.
We think our Petals necklace in Ginger would work perfectly with this dress to add a pop of colour and draw the eye upwards.
The Joanna Dress has a beautiful neckline which helps create a longer upper body illusion and an hourglass silhouette. It is feminine and refined and has been perfectly adapted for pregnancy. This gorgeous maternity dress comes in red, black and monochrome stripe so is sure to be a staple in your maternity wardrobe!
The Halia Rose Kata necklace in Indigo is one of our best-sellers and would be the perfect statement accessory with this dress for a sophisticated wedding look.
The Alicia dress is beautifully feminine and will make the perfect day to evening maternity dress. The gathering at the neckline and empire waist is a dress designed to flatter your growing bump and help make you feel great.
Choose from our Hex bracelet collection to add some arm candy to finish off this wedding outfit in style. Add one or try stacking a couple of gorgeous bracelets for a unique and statement look.
Whether you are breastfeeding or not, you will want an outfit that helps you look and feel great. The gorgeous outfits from RICIA enable you to do just that and prove that mums can wear silk too! Hand-made in London, these beautiful and clever tops and dresses have hidden breastfeeding panels so, if you want to, you can feed your baby discreetly too.
Shown in this picture are the beautiful Emma, Sage and Bella dresses. All made of beautiful silk in pretty colours, these are perfect for occasion wear and wedding days, and with super subtle and hidden panels, no-one would know you are wearing a breastfeeding-friendly outfit either.
We think our Bola and Trio necklaces would make the perfect pairings with these dresses to add a statement look whilst keeping little hands occupied if you are breastfeeding (you don't want them pulling on your gorgeous outfit or perfectly prepped wedding hair-do!)
Halia Rose is a baby-safe ethical jewellery collection that is stylish but also practical and durable for busy mums. Made of 100% non-toxic and BPA free silicone it can be tugged, pulled, chewed etc and won't break (the jewellery is also dishwasher proof so you can keep them clean and as good as new every time you wear them!) Not only gorgeous as a statement piece day or night, they are ideal as teething accessories or fiddle beads when breastfeeding.
Whatever you choose to wear, we hope you feel and look great, and most importantly have a great time celebrating with the happy couple!
