Maternity Wedding Guest Dress Hire Checklist Every Mum-to-Be Needs

Going to a wedding while you're pregnant means finding a dress that feels right and looks great. It's a special time, so picking the perfect wedding guest dress should be fun and stress-free. Let's get into how to choose the right maternity wedding guest dress, making sure you look beautiful and stay comfortable throughout the celebration.

Before You Start

Choose a style that suits your bump size

Picking your dress based on your trimester ensures it fits just right and keeps you comfy all day. Early on, you might lean towards something form-fitting to show off that cute bump. Later, a flowy number might be just what you need for comfort and style.

Understand the Venue Vibe

The setting of the wedding plays a big part in your outfit choice. A beach setting calls for light, breezy fabrics, while a garden affair might inspire florals and soft pastels. For formal dos, think of elegant gowns that drape beautifully over your bump.

Set a Budget

Deciding on a budget before you start dress hunting keeps things realistic. Remember, you're renting, so you can get a bit more bang for your buck, accessing designer labels and luxe fabrics without the designer price tag.

Finding Your Maternity Wedding Guest Dress

Measure Up

Keeping your measurements up to date is crucial for that perfect fit. Bodies evolve, especially during pregnancy, so having your latest measurements at your fingertips will help you find a dress that fits like it was made for you.

Pick Your Style

Choosing a dress that makes you glow is key. Whether you're drawn to the elegance of a maxi dress or the charm of a midi, go for a style that makes you feel like the best version of yourself.

Choose Comfort

Comfort is non-negotiable. Look for dresses with features that cater to your growing bump, like stretchy fabrics or adjustable waistbands. A dress that looks stunning but also feels like a hug? That's the dream.

Colour and Fabric Considerations

The season and the wedding theme can guide your choice of colour and fabric. A summer wedding might call for lighter shades and breathable fabrics, while a winter celebration could lean towards richer colours and warmer materials. Matching the vibe of the wedding not only shows respect for the theme but also ensures you look the part.

Booking Your Dress

Book Ahead

Snagging your dream dress means getting in early. Demand for the perfect maternity wedding guest dresses can be high, especially during the wedding season. Locking in your choice ahead of time ensures you won’t be scrolling through second options at the last minute.

Read the Fine Print

Dive into the details of your rental agreement. Knowing the ins and outs of the return policy and any potential damage fees can save you headaches later. It’s all about enjoying the celebration without worrying about the what-ifs.

Confirm Your Rental Period

Double-check the rental period to include any travel time. You'll want your stunning dress with you, ready to go, without any last-minute rushes. Ensuring you have the dress for a day or two before the wedding allows for a stress-free fit check and accessorising session.

Preparing for the Big Day


Finding the right accessories can make your outfit pop. Think about what shoes will keep you comfortable yet chic throughout the event. Check out our maternity slips to wear with your dress. Match your jewellery and bag not just to the dress, but to the vibe of the wedding too. This balance ensures you look fabulous and feel grounded, no matter how long the day is.

Beauty Prep

Your hair and makeup are like the cherry on top of your perfect dress. Consider styles that complement not just the dress but also the venue and the overall theme of the wedding.

After the Event


Getting familiar with aftercare and the return process is a breeze. Mama Rentals takes care of the cleaning, so your main task is ensuring the dress returns on time and in good condition. Pop the dress back in the garment bag and prepaid return satchel provided and drop it off over the counter at your local post office. Simple!

Share Your Experience

Loved your look? Why not share it? Leaving a review or sharing photos of your dressed-up bump can inspire future mums to navigate their own wedding guest dress adventures. Plus, it's a lovely way to celebrate how stunning you felt and looked.
