You’re not the first bride-to-be with an expecting bridesmaid in your bridal party, and you certainly won’t be the last—and thankfully, many bridesmaid dress companies are recognizing that fact.

Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses by Brand

When it comes to maternity bridesmaid dresses, there are plenty of shops to choose from, including stores that do custom work on Etsy. But if you want to keep it brick-and-mortar, these are our favorite shops for maternity bridesmaid dresses: Dessy, David’s Bridal, Jenny Yoo, Alfred Angelo and Séraphine. Scroll to see maternity bridesmaid dresses from each of those locations below!

Dessy
When it comes to an endless variety of cuts and colors, it’s hard to beat Dessy! Unlike many other establishments, Dessy, which also makes Alfred Sung, After Six and Lela Rose, to name a few, has a dedicated lineup of maternity bridesmaid dresses, some of which come in up to 41 colors. This peau de soie piece with a bow-accented empire waist is “Italian plum.”

Séraphine
Séraphine—a favorite of Duchess Kate and Zoe Saldana’s—is known for its gorgeous collection of formal maternity dresses, including maternity bridesmaid dresses. While the brand is pricey overall, the quality and refined details are hard to beat. We love this floor-length blush stunner for its lace bodice, cap sleeves and jeweled waistband.

Jenny Yoo, adored for her covetable convertible bridesmaid dresses, has five pretty maternity bridesmaid dresses to choose from.

David’s Bridal
Of course, when all else fails, you know that David’s Bridal has always got your back. While the brand sells a variety of bridesmaid dresses with empire waistlines, which can easily accommodate a growing baby bump, they also sell this one just for pregnant ladies. Not only is the mesh material super-forgiving, but those ruched sleeves can expand for additional coverage. Plus, it comes in 10 different colors to fit your wedding vibe.

Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses by Color

While our favorite brands for maternity bridesmaid dresses are above, your favorite colors for those dresses are below. We pulled from the most popular wedding colors right now—the ones that are trending—and picked one maternity bridesmaid dress for each (especially useful if you’re doing mix-and-match dresses for your bridesmaids).

Blush
Ever the classic, the feminine, romantic shade is a favorite, especially for spring and summer. Alfred Sung’s blush floor-length maternity dress features a pleated bodice and an asymmetrical neckline. And a high waist—perfect for that bump.

Alfred Sung Maternity Dress Style M427, $218, Dessy.com

Gold
Metallic bridesmaid dresses are all the rage right now, with shimmering gold dresses at the head of the line. After all, it never hurts to add a little sparkle at a wedding, right? For a soft gold, we vote for Séraphine’s champagne-hued maternity gown, entirely made out of silk. The draped panel of crepe de chine in the front offers a flexible fit.

Navy/Royal Blue
You can never go wrong with something blue. But instead of the French blue shades of yore, more and more brides are opting to put their bridesmaids in something darker—a royal blue or, as seen here, a navy. Jenny Yoo’s Serafina with a sweetheart neckline is all tulle with convertible panels, making it easy to define that waistline or create any neckline of choice.

Gray
Gray is the neutral of 2017. The smoky hue comes in a variety of shades, but we particularly enjoy the softness of a sterling, like that of this pleated chiffon maternity bridesmaid dress, embellished with gold floral lace.

Red
Candy-apple red for Christmas? Sign us up! The festive shade always pops, as it does on Séraphine’s floor-sweeping silk and lace maternity evening gown with a sweetheart neckline and short lace sleeves. The back features a keyhole cutout, not to mention a stretch panel for a comfortable fit.

Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses With Sleeves

If you’re on the hunt for maternity bridesmaid dresses right this minute, then odds are you’re about six months out from your wedding—a winter wedding. And what do maternity bridesmaid dresses for winter weddings need? Sleeves! The demure touch will add a little extra warmth to the ensemble, making sure your bridesmaids stay cozy during outdoor photos.

If you want to go long, the Willow dress has both the sleeves and the length. It’s crafted from a forgiving Jersey material, ensuring that it’s not only comfortable but drapes beautifully. And it can be embellished with the label’s diamanté sash.

Do cold-shoulder sleeves count as sleeves? In our book, they definitely do! Plus, they’re on trend, making this maternity bridesmaid dress from Rosie Pope a fashion-forward choice too.

With short sleeves and a gold sequin finish, this maternity bridesmaid dress from Etsy retailer Mama Bump Signature is two-for-two on the trend front. It also boasts a jaw-dropping draped back.

Looking for cheap maternity bridesmaid dresses with sleeves? ASOS has you covered. Little Mistress Maternity’s blush design features a lace bodice with long, peekaboo sleeves, a crochet yoke, a swirling skirt and a keyhole cutout. The ribbon sash allows the bridesmaid to adjust the size. And the price? Only $42.

And finally, a statement in understated elegance: Séraphine’s deep blue, airy viscose dress with sheer three-quarter sleeves. While otherwise quite simple, the rhinestone belt adds the perfect touch of dazzle for a formal affair.

Plus-Size Maternity Bridesmaid Dresses

Some of the maternity bridesmaid dresses above are available in plus-sizes. As we mentioned, all of the maternity bridesmaids dresses from Dessy are available up to a size 30, and Jenny Yoo does custom sizing. But we’ve added a few more choices for our curvy moms-to-be. Shop The Bump’s favorite plus-size maternity bridesmaid dresses.

One place we love for all plus-size maternity dresses, including plus-size maternity bridesmaid dresses? PinkBlush Maternity, a source for all kinds of adorable and fashionable maternity threads. This chiffon gown has lace sleeves and a cinched waist (the better to show off that hourglass).

PinkBlush Maternity Burgundy Lace Accent Chiffon Maternity Plus Evening Gown, $109, Pinkblushmaternity.com

Available in three pastel hues (teal, lavender and blush), we absolutely adore this pleated chiffon gown, tied at the waist with a bow. Pleats always add a touch of refinement. And since this dress doesn’t quite reach the floor, your pregnant bridesmaid doesn’t have to worry about tripping over her maternity bridesmaid gown because she can’t see her toes!

PinkBlush Maternity Lavender Pleated Chiffon Plus Maternity Gown, $75, Pinkblushmaternity.com

Many of Bari Jay’s bridesmaid dresses come in both maternity and plus-sizes, and this one is one of our favorites. It has a pleated scoop neckline, a low back, a draped tulle skirt and an accent belt making for one effortlessly glamorous dress. (Available up to size 26.)

When it comes to classic maternity bridesmaid dresses (and bridesmaid dresses in general), a strapless silhouette is always a win. Dessy’s boasts a flattering sweetheart neckline and optional spaghetti straps, just in case your bump-rocking bridesmaid wants a little more support.

Of course, one should never forget the endless options available on Etsy, like this royal purple gown with convertible sleeves. It’s made out of soft jersey material, and your pregnant bridesmaid will certainly not be mad at you for putting her in something so comfy for the long (but wonderful!) day ahead.
