'I like big bumps and I cannot lie!' When you've got it, flaunt it. That's what most of our maternity dress style icons do. There's no concealing, covering or disguising here. If you're pregnant and looking for the perfect thing to wear to a wedding, take notes from the best-dressed pregnant celebrities. Life doesn't stop, nor does the glamour, when these lovely women are expecting. And neither does their ability to choose something gorgeous to wear. Check out our favourite maternity wedding guest dresses worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton and more, as well as where they're from, below. We've also included some beautiful wedding-worthy looks worn for either formal events or by celebrities at awards ceremonies. Some of these ladies are already members of our best-dressed wedding guest club, so it's no surprise that their chicness would carry over into pregnancy. But do try to be practical when you're choosing your big day outfit. You don't want to look or feel too uncomfortable to enjoy yourself! Either way, there will be something you'll love (and be able to take inspiration) right here.
But first thing's first... Let's discuss some of the style trends we see in celebrity maternity dresses. (And their maternity wedding guest dresses!)
Our ultimate wedding guest dress style icon, Kate Middleton, has quite a few styles that she repeatedly sports when pregnant. The Duchess of Cambridge loves an Empire line, a ribbon or waistband that sits slightly higher than the waist. It's perfect for pulling into your waist and resting over your bump. Kate loves youthful dress coat styles (we also favour these for mothers of brides and grooms). She actually wears these for many occasions and events even when she's not pregnant, but little jacket-dresses look very sweet with a baby bump showing.
Another favourite of pregnant celebrities when choosing formalwear seems to be navy blue. Victoria Beckham wore the shade when she attended 2011's royal wedding. Meghan Markle wore a dress coat in the same colour to Princess Eugenie's wedding. Clearly this shade is a winner: smart, chic and classic.
