Putting A Ring On It: Did You Get Married When You Were Pregnant?

Attitudes towards couples getting married while expecting a baby have changed over recent years, suggests new research

Weddings are up there with the most special occasions of your life – perhaps even more so if you’re expecting a baby at the same time.

And while being a pregnant bride might’ve come with some social stigma in the past, that’s well and truly done with, according to a new survey.

A poll by maternity label Tiffany Rose found that 90 per cent of us agree that feelings towards getting married with a bump have changed for the better over the last five years – with only four per cent still thinking it’s a no-no.

Well, definitely steer the bouquet and extra cake clear of those guests, then…

The research also reveals that 98 per cent of 25-34 year olds felt that kids out of wedlock was not taboo, compared to 83 per cent of 35-54 year olds.

A fifth of those spoken to reckon that celebrity mums-to-be getting married has helped change attitudes towards it.

Famous faces who have gone down the aisle while expecting a baby include Drew Barrymore, Halle Berry, and Lily Allen, whose husband Sam Cooper announced she was pregnant with their daughter Ethel at the wedding breakfast.
