Your sister, cousin or best friend is getting married and it is time to plan a special day for the girls. While you may be contemplating what to do, the most appropriate gathering for an expecting bride would be a shower. Bachelorette parties are a lot of fun but the activities involved are a little inappropriate. Here are some of the differences to help you understand why a shower is best for the pregnant bride.
Time of Day
A huge difference between a bridal shower and a bachelorette party is the time of day. Bridal showers are usually for a couple of hours during the day sometime between lunch and dinner. On the other hand bachelorette parties are normally on a Friday or Saturday night. Late nights are not good for an expecting mother as she needs lots of rest. The bridal shower would be easier on her sleep schedule.
Planning a maternity wedding is extra special because it is planning a celebration for two life changing events. Not only are you and your partner taking your relationship to the next level but you are also bringing new life into the world and expanding your new family.
While it may seem like your wedding will have to be very different than you originally thought, the only thing you really have to change is the style of your wedding dress. Accommodating that adorable baby bump is more fun than you could have ever imagined. There are so many maternity wedding dresses to choose from these days it’s no wonder so many women are getting married pregnant.
Since there is such a large selection of wedding dresses for the pregnant bride the decision can be overwhelming. Which wedding dress suits your style is the big question. To help you figure out which maternity wedding dress you may want to try I have briefly explained the different styles available.
The old-fashioned idea of a shotgun wedding paints the picture of a father threatening death upon his daughter’s lover if he chooses not to marry her after discovering she is pregnant. This was done to protect both the woman and her family from social scrutiny. While the death threat is not something that happens these days there is still a stigma associated with unwed mothers in society. Here are some examples of how and why shotgun weddings are still happening in the twenty-first century.
Sometimes the unexpected happens and women become pregnant before their wedding day. This is the reality for many women so don’t worry too much. The best thing to do is focus on getting the wedding planned and taking care of your body. While you won’t be able to drink on your wedding night you can still dance your little heart out and eat really good food. It may seem that pregnancy is a huge obstacle for planning your wedding but think of the beautiful little baby you will have so soon.
