I think you should go for it. Why not? Wedding planning should be all done by the time baby gets here. Just find a little help with someone you trust to care for baby. And have them near you for your day. If you are breast feeding you will need to step away for a while. But I think you can make it work. I was ib a wedding a month after my first. It was rough but I made it work. But its your wedding good luck.

I personally did my wedding at 4 to 5 months pregnant because I still wanted to look nice in my photos and I didn't know what to expect about the expenses related to being a new parent and I knew marriage was one adjustment ...adding a baby is even more challenging. Nevertheless, just know that a baby changes everything and your focus as a mother will supercede moat priorities in your life which may place a little strain on your relationship. If you can do it before I would say DO IT!

We attended a wedding last june about 3 months after the couple had a baby, it was a great time! Baby was part of ceremony and had a sitter most of the reception. It was great! Get some extra help and try not to stress!

Personally I wouldn't do it that early. You may be two weeks late or you may end up needing a c-section. It is doable, of course, but will you be able to enjoy your wedding?

I can feel your pain. We just found out I'm pregnant.  We had planned to get married in September,  baby ia due October.  I want to move it up so we're all a.family at the hospital and so I don't look huge in the wedding pictures, but I don't know what to do.
