Evening Dress

If you have the time and the inclination, you could always purchase a maternity evening gown pattern and make your own maternity dress. The advantage of this is of course that you will have a dress that is fitted to you, is in the exact colour and material that you want, and if you’re making it yourself, is quite an economical method. Alternatively, you may wish to have a local dressmaker make up a one-off maternity evening gown for you. Although this will be more expensive than making it up yourself, again, you will have a made to measure maternity evening dress.

3. Hiring a maternity evening dress:

This is a great option if you don’t want to spend hundreds of pounds on a dress that (despite what you TELL hubbie/boyfriend/partner) you really will – in all likliehood- only wear once. Its also an ideal choice if you’re looking for something out of season – for example for a summer ball (the High Street shops don’t tend to hold any maternity evening dresses / maternity cocktail dresses in stock during the summer season). You will likely find a fantastic choice of maternity evening dresses and maternity cocktail dresses – maternity special occasion wear (as with maternity day wear) being designed to flatter you and your bump. This option is probably the best option if you’re looking for the widest choice available, and the most cost effective (after all, wouldn’t you rather spend the money you’ve saved on the new nursery or perhaps on a relaxing pedicure before Baby’s born ?!).

Whichever option you choose, the key element is that you feel comfortable and wonderful in your chosen maternity evening gown. Whether you go for a very formal maternity dress, or a maternity evening dress, you need to look and feel amazing ! Whichever option (and company) you choose, see if you can try on the dresses beforehand – make sure the shop or online company will allow you to visit to ensure that you’re making the right choice of maternity dress for your special occasion.

Good luck with your quest for that perfect maternity dress – and whatever happens – enjoy that special function !
