However, it was one of the main reasons for the setting up of Matchimony, Natasha wanted a deep wine-red theme that would be just a nod to Christmas (just like our gorgeous Instagram theme this month) in dresses that suited all her leading ladies but couldn’t find...

Posted on

Pregnancy is exceptionally common in the Matchimony office – in fact we have had four in the past two years in the office!  Our pregnant ladies are massive fans of the Matchimony dresses for every stage of their pregnancy and we wanted to share our words of wisdom with you. How to choose dresses for pregnant bridesmaids is a question that we are often asked about, do we make dresses that can accommodate a growing bump? Can we provide custom options for pregnant maids? Which of our off-the-peg dresses are best for pregnancy? In fact we can help with everything…....
