Maternity jeans and wedding outfit

I am looking for some maternity jeans and can't seem to find any anywhere that fit ! I have looked in H & M and Next. Im 17 weeks but don't have a proper bump yet so don't want the huge ones just some elasticated ones or something. I don't like the ones I've seen in Next so far and the ones in H & M I like but seem to be made for women with catwalk legs ! Mine aren't short but aren't up to my armpits either. Any suggestions ?
Also have a wedding to go to when 6 and a half months (in December) and am thinking I would like to get a smart trouser suit. Any recommendations for smart but not too pricey pregnancy clothes ?

All of the above sell maternity wear at varying prices, none of which are extortionate.

How about trying a maternity dress agency for the wedding? It saves guessing on sizes and means your not spending lots on an outfit you might not wear inthe future, because of funny sizes etc. We bought basics, including lots of larger sizes as beetroot suggests, but hired about three outfits through the pregnancy, for weddings/parties and our graduation. We used one in Cheltenham, but I guess they are everywhere... hey, we could even set up our own here

Thanks ladies. I will have a look. Hiring an outfit is a great idea Waterbaby, am loathe to spend lots of money on something I will probably never wear again.

I was in a local dress agency today and they had a small selection of maternity wear but what they had was good e.g. from a posh frock to linen tunic and trousers to jeans so if you don't have a specialist maternity one nearby, try an ordinary dress agency.

Avoid the blooming marvellous under-the-bump jeans IMO - they slipped off entirely, much to the amusement of dd1.

What size are you, though? They look nice, might fit you better, I've got a pair of size 10 available...

For wedding outfit try - about as expensive as Next but much more bump-friendly!

Have you seen that belt that you can use with your normal jeans - I think its called the Belly Belt or something, it was in my Grobag catalogue and I must say it looked fab and I wish I'd had one when I was pg.
