Currently 35 weeks pregnant... getting married in December (if weddings can go ahead)

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I planned my wedding while on maternity leave. Had my little one in the December and went to try on dresses in the April. We were supposed to get married in April there and our little one would have been 16 months. Now due to get married in December 3 days before his 2nd birthday 🤞🏼 x

Booked my wedding and found out 2 months later I was pregnant. Got married in February little one was 6m manage it all no bother Xx

I got married when my baby was 3 months old, managed to plan within 8 weeks (we changed the date to be married earlier)

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I started planning a month before I was due, I took my newborn when I tried on my dress! That was last year and I'm getting married in one year today. It gave me more energy after pregnancy was zapping my energy 😂 get planning and have fun x

I postponed mine for the following year. Was supposed to get married last week but decided to hold off because of little one. But then worked out perfectly because of this coronavirus pandemic xx

It’s definitely doable!! We booked our wedding and found out we were pregnant 2 months later, we had all intentions to still get married but for us paying for the wedding and a baby at the same time was just unnecessary stress. And I stopped enjoying researching either, if I was looking at wedding things I felt guilty about the baby, then if I looked at baby things I panicked about the wedding. So we decided to postpone for 18 months and we’re so much happier!

Can't see why it would be a problem. You have plenty of time before 22 to organise everything.

I didn’t plan when I was pregnant but we booked the date when baby was 8 weeks old which was October 2019, wedding is September 2021 and have used some of maternity leave to get bits booked in and done 🙂 baby will be 2 years 1 month on our wedding day xx

I planned mine for the 31st July my baby daughter was due the 6th September I went into labour on the 19th July she was born premature and was born the 24th July exactly a week before I was due to get married 🙈🙈🙈

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I don't see why not? It doesn't stop you planning, or carrying on as normal? Or as I missing the point?

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I did, I had my little boy just under a year before and did all the planning and stuff while pregnant

I got pregnant august of 2018. And got engaged in the april beforehand. Planned all of the wedding around the pregnancy. Only thing I had to wait to do was dress shopping. Unfortunatley our wedding got cancelled due to corona but we are now getting married april 2021 on our 6th year anniversary. Its nice knowing our little one will be in all the photos

I planned my wedding whilst pregnant and it’s honestly not that bad although we had to postpone it as didn’t fit into my dress 😅 just remember it’s you’re day and not to get stressed x

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I was not aware that being pregnant stops anything let alone wedding planning!!

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

We got engaged about 2 weeks before we found out we were pregnant (and also moved into our first home in between! 😂). We planned everything while I was pregnant and I went dress shopping and bought my dress 5 weeks post partum! We got married 3 days before our daughter turned 1. My only worry was that she’d arrive on the day of our wedding date and we’d be celebrating her first birthday on our wedding day but luckily she held on a few more days 😂

I'm 5 months pregnant. Baby is due 2 weeks before our wedding. It wasnt planned that way! Wedding was first but we found out shortly after booking and paying for venue that we were pregnant. Coupled with lockdown it hasn't exactly been the easiest but it's definitely doable! X

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

Booked wedding January 18 for following April, went dress shopping and bought dress in March 18, found out was expecting in April. Little boy arrived January 19 and wedding went ahead April 19. Everything was find and I actually think I was a lot more chilled about the wedding because of it all xx

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I've planned my wedding through two pregnancies, it's definitely possible! Although I bought my dress before either of them so I'm not looking forward to trying to make it fit again before July next year 🙈

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

You can get wedding planners to help out, you don't have to get then to plan the whole thing. Most planners have different options, like just handling the administration bits ect

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I got pregnant in November, proposed to in May, planned a wedding, had a baby in August and got married in November 💪🏼

Make sure you have finished all the main planning before you have the baby, I cannot stress this enough. When the baby is here you will have baby brain and zero time!

Plan, plan, plan whilst you’re pregnant and get all of it out of the way. I just had little touches to do after the baby was born and I was so glad I’d already done it all!

PS. Congratulations! 🥰♥️

I did my save the dates and invites myself so I made sure to get those all done before my little one arrived. I haven't sent them but at least I know they are done and I didn't have to stress about getting them done whilst looking after a baby. I get married in April 2022 and I'm going to look at dresses in October while I'm still on maternity leave

UKbride Member 12 Jun 2020

I booked my wedding and found out I was pregnant a month later.. I went and tried dresses on so I knew the style I wanted straight away but I didn’t buy it as I knew I’d change shape. My bridal party didn’t know at this point. I got married when my daughter was 8 weeks old I think I got my dress 5 weeks before the wedding in the end. It was actually surprisingly easy and enjoyable I wasn’t stressing as Id just had a baby but everyone said how amazing the day was and how well I’d done considering I had such a young baby. Just enjoy and try not to get stressed xx

You're probably getting married over a year after baby is born, so there is no issue 🤷‍♀️

UKbride Member 13 Jun 2020

I did! It was actually handy being in mat leave as it ment I could contact suppliers in the day time so things got sorted pretty quick. My little one was 10 months old at our wedding 😊

UKbride Member 15 Jun 2020

I planned our wedding and got married whilst pregnant, it was no problem except for not being able to try all the food and drink but I’m sure your partner won’t mind having your share!
