Arguably the second most important date of your pregnancy (right behind bub's due date) is that of your baby shower. Whether you're into something low key or pulling out all the stops - and nappy-related party games - your baby shower is all about you, your pregnancy and the excitement of welcoming a new bundle of joy into your life and community.
But once you've organised the catering, games and decorations, it's time to decide on what you're going to wear. After all, you're going to be the centre of attention and, most likely, the most photographed person on the day.
Well dear reader, baby shower dresses happen to be our thing here at Maive & Bo so sit back and read through our three baby shower dress styles that are not only perfect for photos, they're bound to have you looking and feeling the best you can on your special day.
Floral maxi maternity dresses, lace maternity dresses and fitted maternity dresses are our most asked-for baby shower dresses so we'll focus on these three styles in this article. No matter what, the most important thing when choosing your dress is to stay true to yourself and the look that you'll feel most comfortable in for your special day.
Floral prints are nothing if not romantic and wistful so it's no surprise maternity floral maxi dresses are our go-to for the ultimate baby shower dress.
Floral Maxi Dresses are perfect for a garden-party themed baby shower. Hold the party outside if possible and decorate with plenty of greenery, strings of fairy lights and mix-matched tea cups for that shabby-chic look.
We can't go past The Wanderer Chiffon Maternity Gown. Soft flowing florals and full-length shape make it perfect for the feminine mum-to-be with a dash of bohemian spirit. A button-down bodice, floaty sleeves and gorgeous ruffle hem means it perfectly shapes the pregnant belly. The bonus? It can be worn after pregnancy for your newborn shoot or special occasion.
The choice of expecting women with a true bohemian soul, a lace maternity dress is the perfect way to express your femininity whilst capturing romantic images to last a lifetime.
Lace Maternity Dresses are perfectly suited to a boho-themed baby shower. For the perfect bohemian theme, lay large rugs and mixed pillows around a low lying table filled with grazing plates, tea lights and loose greenery. Simply add your friends for the perfect day out.
Our pick is The Wanderer White Lace Maternity Gown for a bohemian-themed baby shower. Soft lace sleeves and a generously flowing skirt give it a whimsical feel that compliments and adjusts to your shape. Not only a baby shower favourite, this style is perfect for maternity photoshoots and can be worn after your baby has arrived for newborn shoots or special occasions.
You've got new curves and there's no better way to show them off at your baby shower than with a fitted maternity dress. Opt for fitted dresses with great colours of prints to ensure they're still occasion appropriate.
An on-trend fitted maternity dress is perfectly placed for a chic baby shower at the latest restaurant or bar. Book at a table and a group of friends and family to get together for an afternoon of canapes, mocktails and giggles and don't forgot to take as many photos as possible to remember the special day.
The Confetti Shirred Maternity Dress is the perfect fitted maternity dress for a chic, baby shower. Fully shirred throughout the body and featuring on-trend puff sleeves, this style hugs your bump whilst beautifully skimming your curves and the fun print just screams 'celebration.'
Whatever type of baby shower dress you choose and whatever your day holds, we know it will be incredibly special. Be sure to take 'all the photos' and enjoy every minute.
