25 Nursing-Friendly Wedding Guest Dresses For All Your Summer Events

Deciding what to wear to a wedding can be a pain – certain colors are off limits, dress codes can be tricky, and sometimes brides even request that guests wear a specific color. But if you’re a breastfeeding mom, finding a dress that’s both functional and cute can be doubly hard.

Breastfeeding your baby is a lot of work. So is finding a wedding guest dress that’s suitable for the occasion and works for a breastfeeding mama. 

Many clothing brands are realizing that there’s a big market for nursing-friendly dresses that women actually want to wear. Hooray! Not to mention that some dresses, like wrap dresses, button-down dresses, and one-shoulder dresses, are almost always nursing-friendly, as fashion writer Pandora Sykes details in Repeller.

“Taking a baby to a wedding factors high in the anxiety stakes: Will she cry during the speeches? Will she fart during the vows?” Sykes writes. “Three weddings down (and with two of these very looks already tried and tested), I have learned that the key is to keep things simple. Attending a wedding with a baby is a physical rigmarole regardless of whether you are breast or bottle-feeding, so keep it easy. Nothing too tight, nothing too complicated and go hard on the accessories, not the silhouette.”

In that spirit, here are 25 nursing-friendly dresses that you’ll want in your closet for your next big event, whether it’s your friend’s semi-formal wedding or your sister’s casual rehearsal dinner.
