If you're anything like us, you probably approach wedding invites with equal parts excitement and stress. After all, dress codes are a tricky thing. If you're pregnant, the act of dressing up an ever-growing bump can certainly add to the challenge when the market of maternity dresses seems to range from muumuus to too-tight-to-function frocks. However, you don't have to put aside your sense of style or your comfort to abide by the dress codes. Turns out if you give three maternity essentials for a winter wedding (and any wedding, at that) a go, you can all but guarantee you'll look and feel your best.
The items in question? No-fuss dresses, comfortable shoes, and purses you can actually fit your belongings in. Chic practicality should be its own dress code, really, and there’s no better feeling than nailing it. So, instead of drowning in a cup of water over what to wear, don’t be afraid to opt for staples that will allow you to play around and always look good, whether you opt for a stunning red dress and a pair of kitten heels or a flowy belted number you can dress up with tights. Of course, here at Who What Wear, we don’t like to leave you without some shopping inspiration, so we scoured the internet for the absolute best maternity essentials that will take the stress out of dressing up for a winter wedding. Check them out below.
Sometimes the simplest of dresses make the biggest impact. That's why instead of attending a wedding with a frock that will need adjusting throughout the occasion, opt for no-fuss choices like wrap dresses or printed jersey that are zero-effort but always look incredibly chic.

The Right-Sized Bag
Clutches and small bags always seem to be the norm when it comes to weddings. However, you need a bag that can carry more than your lipstick and credit card. That's where medium-size bags come in. They're still small enough to not be an inconvenience, but big enough to hold everything you need (and even some leftover cake).
A medium-size bag doesn't mean it has to be a boring one.
