7) Mamalicious Maternity Pink 3/4 Sleeve Skater Dress, £40, Dorothy Perkins

Another bump (excuse the pun) for three-quarter length flutey sleeves, as Dorothy Perkins comes through with this on-trend floaty option for a beautifully balmy summer wedding. The parallel line detail across the front makes the dress look more expensive than it is, and the print will distract the eye and conceal smaller bumps (not that you should feel you have to). Mamalicious indeed.

10) Yellow Floral Maternity Cold Shoulder Midi Dress, £39, JoJo Maman Bebe

You can trust JoJo Maman Bebe for all things maternitywear, including this gorgeous bumble-bee yellow dress with demure exposed shoulder detail. All that's necessary is a touch of simple makeup and a fixed smile to greet wedding guests you kind-of-recognise-but-don't-quite-remember-the-name-of all day. Oh, and as this dress goes really well with a black shoe that we're pretty sure you already own, you won't have to trundle out to the shops to find a brand new pair of shoes that you'll only wear once (saving you even more money before the baby comes).  Perfect!
