How to Select a Dress to Attend a Wedding when you are a New Mom

Although becoming a mom is so wonderful experience, it is also hard to accept the real truth of ugliness of the body. It happened to me too. I couldn’t wear most of the beautiful dresses which I thought those are look nicer on me. I couldn’t wear those beautiful body hugging dresses just because now I have a big tummy. Those admired dresses are not for me now. How about attending a party during the postpartum days? That was the hardest experience for me. Because, it was really difficult to select a matching dress for any special occasion.

With my experiences throughout these years are in mind, I thought of sharing some tips to select a dress to attend a wedding when you are a new mom. A wedding is a function that we cannot miss, especially if it is a wedding of a close friend or a relative. So, think of selecting a dress for wedding which gives you the most beautiful look and which hide your flabby and not so curvy body.

To support this post, I share some pictures of matching wedding dresses which I found from a bridal dress shop in Barrie. When I checked the mother of the bride dress collection from this wedding shop in Barrie, I found more interesting and stylish wedding dresses which also suit for any new mom. So, here we go!

Short Dresses are the best



This is my opinion. Although you are in a special occasion, you may need to nurse the baby or you may need to sooth him while carrying him. So, a simple short dress is always worked for me than wearing a dress which is very long and with lot of frills.

Visit a Bridal Store
