Getting Married After Having a Baby: Top Tips

Sharing is caring!

You’ve heard the playground phrase: ‘First, comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage’ – well, perhaps not so much anymore. With the pressure of the body clock, financial situations, or simply having the dream of becoming a young parent, it is now the norm for many couples to start a family before tying the knot.

Marriage is a sacrament that is shared between a couple to prove their lifelong commitment to each other, but these days, it doesn’t necessarily always mean having to be one step in front of starting a family.

If you have recently given birth and are about to get married to your partner, here are some key things to consider during the run-up to the big day:

Celebrate your Body

After having a baby, it’s natural to struggle with body image. Most women are left with loose skin and stretch marks in the following weeks and months but remember just how amazing your postpartum body is – it kept both you and your baby safe and healthy and has allowed you to bring new life into the world. Learn to accept that your body has undergone drastic for an amazing reason and be proud of what it has achieved.

By getting rid of negative thoughts surrounding your body, you’ll feel much more comfortable in your own skin when walking down the aisle. One way to re-light your confidence after giving birth would be to book a bridal boudoir photography photoshoot to capture strikingly natural photos wearing an outfit in which you feel most comfortable and helps you feel your best self again before the big day.

Finding the Right Dress

Your body weight may fluctuate after pregnancy, so finding a dress that works for your body shape can be tricky in the following weeks. This may not be the best time to go for dress fittings, but you can still do research online to get an idea of the styles you’re interested in.

When the time comes, it may be a case of trying on an array of dress styles to get a perspective on which one works best for your shape. Remember, you can book regular dress fittings to have your dress altered if required – even just days before the wedding.

Include Your Baby in All Aspects of the Wedding

A wedding is about celebrating the relationship you have with your one true love, but following the birth of your newborn, why not share the day every aspect of the day as a happy trio? In doing so, you will make lifetime memories that you can share with your child as they get older.

If your baby is now walking, you could decide to have them as your flower girl or ring bearer (in the company of an adult, of course). Additionally, you could give them a special mention in your vows, which not only adds a personal touch but shows the lifelong commitment you are making to each other as devoted parents.
