    I think I would smile sweetly at the bride and see if you can wear a dress/ get it altered so you can feed in it! Depending on the neckline you might be able to 'pop' over the top, and then use a shawl or something if you don't want to show too much.

    If the schedule is unclear that probably means it's flexible! You could keep baby near with a pretty sling (hire/borrow one - there are often fb groups that will help match a sling to a dress and loan you one).

    Feed right before the service and hand over to Daddy for the ceremony and then there is normally a gap between ceremony and photos which you can feed a quick top up. Once the photos are done you can probably feed during reception etc without anybody paying attention.

    I am assuming the bride is a friend/family and hopefully supportive of you and your baby's needs!

    Hopefully baby will nap in a sling for you too!

    I've gone to many weddings with my baby. I take the top part of the gown off so it hangs down my waist. Then I feed as normal. You can do this with almost any type of dress/gown. If you feed often you shouldn't have to pump.
