Hmm Hard question. It depends how much you want your wedding to be perfect. If you want it with perfection - then wait - if you dont mind being pregnant on your wedding then do it. I suggest waiting. Get majority of your planning out of the way so that when the baby comes you have not an overwhelming amount of it.
Or - have a small wedding now - just you 2 and immediate family. And in a year have a vow renewal.

Congrats hunny!!! Last month I thought I may be pregnant, although I'm not, (which is probably a good thing, although I really want a baby), I planned on moving the wedding from Sept 09-May 2010 so that I wouldn't be pregnant and the baby could be at the wedding!! One girl that I used to work with was in the same situation as you, and she pushed the wedding back so that her baby could be there, and I know 2 other girls who had weddings while they were 4-6 months pregnant...so I think you should do whatever is best for you too!! :)

I agree with sweetserenity....it depends on if you want it to be perfect, and if you don't mind getting married while you are pregnant. You could also consider moving the date up 2-3 months so that you wouldn't be as far along in your pregnancy, and wouldn't really be showing all that much.

Well, congrats!!! That's very exciting! I have been thinking about this too, what if I get preg. before the wedding! It really depends on you and your FH. Maybe you can move the date up by 2 months and see if your reception site will work with you. Talk to your seamstress about your dress. I wouldn't want to just ditch all the plans that we have been making for a year now, so if I were in your situation, I would see if we could move the date up! Good Luck!!

Just push it up...or push it down...
If you want your wedding to be great!  Just push your date up b/c you don't know how big you will get in a few months down the line...If you want to wait a little til after you have the baby then push it down.  At least you will know how much weight you have to deal with after...either way, your baby will be born into a great family and to a mother and father who truely adore him/her.  Congrats!  
  P.S. I know of a couple who got married right before they had their baby and a few months after they got the baby, they had the big ceremony and someone pulled the baby in on a waggon that was decorated beautifully!  It was perfect!

Congrats!!  I am also pregnant.  I found out while planning an august wedding and we moved the wedding up to feb. 7th.  I will be 7 months.  It is amazing, and my advice is to keep the wedding set as is!!  It has been pretty hard with working, planning, and the baby, but by the 2nd and 3rd trimester you will be feeling good!!  I was sick the first 3 months but that goes away after 13 weeks.  I thought about waiting until after baby and keeping it in august and I still think about it from time to time, but the baby is still so young and would need a lot of attention.  Not to mention if you breastfeed, having the wedding right after baby could be very uncomfortable for you.  It's a lot to think about.  We had complications early on and after finding out things were okay I decided it was best to move it up.  The only concern was my dress and the style I got is a normal dress.  We ordered it a couple sizes too big and they altered it to fit perfect.  You actually can't even tell I'm pregnant in the dress.  Also if this is your first baby you probably won't show till later.  I didn't really show until 6 months and I still have a tiny little ball for a bump.  Good luck with everything!!

I think it depends what everyone means by "perfect". If by "perfect", you mean "not pregnant", then move the date.

I don't see why being pregnant would make a wedding day any less perfect, personally.

A friend of mine got married when she was somewhere in the eight-month mark, and she was beautiful. The photographer took pictures that showed it off and pictures that hid it so she could decide on her own which she liked best. And go figure, their favorite picture is the two of them together, hubby with his hands on her big pregnant belly. It was beautiful and it didn't dampen the day one bit - and she isn't the least bit ashamed of the pictures, either.

So it's up to you. If being pregnant will ruin your day and make it "less perfect", then move the date. If you don't mind it, then love it and go on with your original plan.

I have to agree with nocturnius . I guess it depends on your idea of perfect.  To me my idea of perfect wouldn't matter if I was pregnant or not on my wedding day.
We have also discussed this possibility and we've decided that if I get pregnant we would get married right away, b/c we don't want to bring a baby into this world not being married and b/c he has better health insurance ;) As for the reception we push it out to our 1 yr anniversary and maybe even do a vow renewal with our child involved.
It all depends on what will make you happy. Are you getting married in a church? If so, you need to make sure they will still marry you if you are pregnant. This happened to my friend and they would not marry her.
Good luck

That's funny...I was eight months prego with my hubby 10 years ago. We cancelled the big church thing and went to Tahoe with friends and close family (25) and had the huge reception a couple of months later in Carmel.  Very nice...The baby wasn't there for me to enjoy myself, but it was a beautiful reception.  I felt kind of funny getting married in all white in a church, eight months pregnant. So, I married in ivory instead...

first of all congrats this is such exciting news!! i know two people who got pregnant during wedding planning. the first couple got married while she was 7 months pregnant and the others waited until after the baby was born.  both weddings were beautiful and full of happiness. the pregnant bride was glowing and had a beautiful empire waisted dress that she looked absolutely stunning in.  and they were so happy (you could just see it all over their faces) because they were not only celebrating their marriage but also the fact that they were having a baby.  and the second couple who waited also had a beautiful day and their daughter was their flower girl and it was so special because she was a part of their wedding and they also had not only their marriage to celebrate but their little girl as well.  i think either way your baby  is going to play a big part in your day whether it is born yet or not and it will be just as special and beautiful of a day and so full of celebration whether you decide to have it while your pregnant or after the baby is born. congrats :)

Congrats. What most of these women don't realize is that there is the possiblity of baby weight after the baby. It is great to have your little one at the wedding but in the end they don't remember. If you have bought your dress already think about if you feel like stressing over weight loss. I wish you all the best and in the end do what you and him want to and nothing else!

CONGRATS! I would say keep the date as is …. Your wedding is more perfect now knowing that your little bundle of joy is with you both :)  I have a 6 month old and I would have loved being pregnant and getting married but we got engaged after I had my little man! Plus it may be hard to plan a wedding after he/she is born …. I mean I find it hard planning now for a wedding cause he occupies all of my time … But man so worth it …. I would say do what you think is best for sure … either way .. you will be a beautiful bride and better yet you may have a beautiful glow as well on your special day! Whatever you choose the best of luck to you on your wedding day and congrats about the baby on the way ... very exciting!

Congrats!  I found out I was pregnant 4 months after we got engaged, 1 year before our wedding.  We decided to NOT push it off and although I am no longer going to be pregnant, I haven't lost my baby weight for the big day.  What it comes down to, is that you need to do what feels right.  It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks - i felt so beautiful when I was expecting.  Check out this dress designer from California http://www.jessicaiverson.com/
