PG: Yes, it’s always best to play it on the safe side and keep an early pregnancy on the DL at a wedding.
But if the news gets out—say because you’re not drinking and wearing a suspiciously flowy dress—then the bride shouldn’t let someone’s happy news get in the way of her happy day.

Should you announce your wedding date on Facebook?
Share The Wedding Date
Sharing the date on Facebook is perfectly fine since most of your friends, colleagues and acquaintances will likely ask you about the big day. But keep any status updates short and to the point to be sensitive to the broader audience — that is, those who won’t be participating in the wedding.

How do you hide a pregnancy bump at a wedding?
With the right accents, brides can hide a baby bump by simply drawing the eye away from it. Deep V-necks create a long, lean appearance and draw the eye up and away from the waistline. Cap sleeves and bared backs also create a focal point far away from the bump. Use accessories to hide your bump as well.
What is a child born before marriage called?
A bastard or illegitimate child is one born out of lawful wedlock. A child may be born out of lawful wedlock, either because he is the child of a woman who is not lawfully married at all, or because he is the child of a woman who is lawfully married, but upon whom he is begotten by another than her lawful husband.”
Can a wedding dress be altered for pregnancy?
You may not require as many alterations to your wedding dress, as you are in the early stages of pregnancy. For brides in their second or even third trimester, there are far more complications. Keep in mind; you should never judge a woman on past pregnancies because they are all unique.
