Maternity Wedding Dress Shopping Expedition No. 1

What is it that makes so many brides—and their mothers—lose their sense of humor? I mean, I assume they once had one, these ladies scowling at me from their risers and three-way mirrors as I step up to my own riser and three-way mirror, my giant belly protruding from a series of cheaply made wedding gowns like the world’s largest marshmallow popping out of its bag.

I reply to their stares with a smile and a belly pat, saying in a tone that I mean to be simultaneously reassuring and ironic, “It’s just a pillow.”

They do not crack a smile, not one of them.

  1. Mama Bridal have a good range of maternity wedding dresses and have a showroom you can try them on in. Also sell online for those that can't get to Sussex!
