5 Maternity Wedding Dresses for the Expecting Bride-To-Be (Like Ciara & Olivia Wilde!)

by Heather Hall

Ciara and Olivia Wilde are both engaged and pregnant, which means we have maternity wedding dresses dancing in our heads. Even though Ciara just told People.com she and fiancé Future will most likely wait to wed until after the birth of their first child sometime this spring, you never know, she could pull fast one on us and take her bump with her down the aisle (Drew Barrymore did!). Here are a few dresses we love that could totally work for a pregnant bride!

The sheer neckline is sexy, yet sweet while the empire waist stylishly conceals a little baby bump.

From beaded boleros to hooded capes, cover-up accessories were seen all over the runways this past season at Bridal Fashion Week and are a great way to provide coverage if you're looking to minimize your belly.

This classic silhouette is totally timeless (and comfy). Plus, an embellished neckline means you'll be drawing the attention towards your upper body.

Organza rosettes make this dress ultra-feminine and a unique overlay will nicely frame your perfect bump (think Kerry Washington at the Golden Globes).

This dress is not for everyone, but a plunging neckline and sheer (short) skirt will keep your temperature cool and will definitely have you looking hot!
