So, I'll be 18 weeks when I get married and (at 10 weeks) I already have a massive gut beautifully proportioned bump. I was perfectly prepared to get wed in my pyjamas but DP has started talking about a new suit and I don't want to show him up. (DS5 has already announced he's dressing as a pirate...). Any recommendations for nice but not too fancy maternity dresses? My regular style is stuck in an 80s indie-kid time warp, I'm size 16 with short legs, 44, and don't really want to show my shoulders off. Can anyone help? I want to look cute on my wedding day damn it!

Are you wanting a 'wedding dress' or just a fab dress to get married in?

Actually, this would work in either case, unless you're after full length / spending more.

No, def not a "wedding" dress. It's a very low key do and I don't really do dressing up. I'll have a look at the other asos dresses. The one you linked to is very pretty but I need a darker colour as I'm pale and ginger. Thank you so much for your input - I am totally clueless at buying anything that's not jeans/tshirts.

Ooh, there was a great green maxi, if you're a 'green' ginger.

Oh, budget is up to £200 if it's really super duper fab.

Doh can't sort out my links on this new fangled thing. Love the green one but I'm worried they may be a bit too dressy for me. I'm going to have to get ordering and trying them on, aren't I? Eek

Oh MrsL I think you may have hit the jackpot. That blue one is gorgeous!

Tiffany Rose and Seraphine both have lovely "event" maternity dresses for under £200
