Expecting Bridesmaids?

This past Saturday 3 of Anna's 6 bridesmaids were expecting.  It's rare that we even have 1 expecting bridesmaid in a wedding party!

Anna did a few things to help keep her mama's-to-be happy and comfortable.

*She chose a style of dress that worked with their growing bellies.  For her Matron of Honor, they chose a maternity-style gown that worked perfectly with the other dresses.

*She gave her girls the option of choosing their own shoes.  This was a key factor in their comfort.

*She gave them a few minutes at the church before the ceremony to put their feet up and catch their breath.

*She assigned another bridesmaid who wasn't expecting to pay attention to her train and rearrange it when she walked around during the ceremony.

*She and Alan created a non-alcoholic signature drink for the reception so they could have a festive beverage.

Most of all Anna and Alan were just thrilled these ladies could be there on their special day.  When you have an mom-to-be in your wedding party be aware of their needs and try to make the process as easy as possible.
