Wedding is in 4 weeks, rather rushed as the baby is ill. Very ill. They are eager to have him on the wedding pics by that's by the bye.
I am a size 22/24 and need a nice outfit.
Jaques Vert is a bit too mumsy.
I don't really want to buy from a catalogue either.
I'm in Yorkshire.
Please help x

That sounds really worrying and stressful. I hope there is some hope for the babyflowers

I'm sure we can help you find something good to wear. Could you give an idea of the sort of colours you like and your budget?

Id love maybe raspberry/lavender/navy as colours and my budget inc shoes hat and bag is £300 ish X x

Borntobeamum Mon 02-May-16 21:36:37

And thank you so much for your concern x

Debenhams offer a free personal shopper maybe book something with them. We did it last year when I was a bridesmaid and they were fantastic, gave advice both on colours but also styles.

I looked there yesterday however they are very limited in larger sizes.

Is this raspberry, or too pink? With a navy jacket.
This is off brief but lovely
this could maybe be considered a lavendery raspberryish colour

Betty Barclay print

I know it's jacques vert but you might fancy this hat

Hotsquash - comes in several colours - might be too hot for late May?

Oh that Serena blue and white one is lovely Mrs Lettuce.

I live the first raspberry one and could see it with navy.
I also love the JV hat! Totally stunning.
Do House if Frazer carry this line in store or just to order?
I'd prefer to go and try on than order in drubs and drabs! X

The JV hat might work with chi chi dress, possibly.

this is quit similar and would work well with the Serena dress.

I think it's possible to order into store at house of fraiser (and john lewis who also stock studio 8), that way you can sure the things you want to try will be be there in the right sizes. They do stock most lines in most stores but it's always a bit of a punt otherwise, IME.

Good tip with House of Fraser is to order it all online for click and collect instore. You can try it all on there and return what you don't want straight away.
And 4% cashback on quidco
