Read on to get all the details on long and short styles, featuring lace, chiffon, spandex, and more. We expect you’ll find a winter wedding maternity gown to make your marital vision a reality.

Shopping for a Winter Maternity Gown
We get that you want to be a stylish bride, but don’t forget comfort. While you’re pregnant, feeling overly constricted isn’t fun. The styles on our roundup offer both flattering and functional details, like stretchy fabric and side ruching that flaunts your bump. To decide which style best suits you, consider where you’ll be in the pregnancy the day you say “I do.” In other words, you’ll be further along, and your belly is going to be bigger. Next, consider the venue. A formal church wedding calls for lace and an elegant silhouette perhaps, while a less traditional, and dare we say, sexy dress, may be a good fit for a more modern, industrial space. It’s winter, so keep the potentially-plunging temperatures in mind if you’re pondering sleeve and skirt length. That being said, you may run hotter than usual. You know, since you’re growing a human! Keep scrolling for more shopping tips.
Winter Maternity Dress Shopping Considerations
The gowns we’ve reviewed for you and your plus-one range in price from just over $20 to $460.
You’ll see mostly white and ivory gowns here, but keep your eyes peeled for a pretty and feminine blush-hued dress, as well as a few selections that incorporate a splash of color.
Some of our winter wedding maternity dress picks are long sleeve to account for chilly temps. Of course when you’re expecting, you tend to feel warmer than others in the room, so we were sure to include cap-sleeve and sleeveless maternity wedding gown styles, too. As far as silhouette, if you want to flaunt your bump, look for a fitted style. A empire waist will help accommodate your growing bump, which makes this a great style at any trimester. Fabrics include lace, and stretchy, curve-friendly jersey.
It’s winter, so except for one option, these gowns are long. Just be sure the skirt is not so long you risk tripping.
