Formal maternity clothes?

So I just got an invite to a wedding that is formal attire only on March 29, I will be 36 weeks pregnant--any suggestions on where to get a dress?? I have looked online and Motherhood, Destination Maternity and Pea in a Pod all have formal dresses but most are sleeveless or strapless and that's just not me--anyone know where else I could find one??

Hi there,

I can totally understand why that would be a challenge!  I'm not sure where you are, but in my neck of the woods it is still quite chilly at that time of the year.  Would you be able to buy a strapless/sleeveless dress and then get some kind of wrap/sweater to go over the top? 

Here are a few ideas from iVillage for formal maternity gear too:

Good luck and happy shopping!

I'm in NJ and not only can it be quite chilly but they are hoping to hold part of the ceremony/reception outdoors!

Maybe a nice, dark grey or black sweater dress with sparkly jewelry and shoes?

I have since found out it's a black and white wedding and I have a 3/4 sleeve motherhood black dress (nylony) I picked up at the thrift store with a low v-neck that I am going to get good jewlrey to go with, I have a dressy purse and will see closer to what I do about shoes.
