DH and I are going to the wedding of one of his close friends this weekend and I have suddenly had the panicked realisation that I have absolutely NOTHING to wear. I have obviously left this way too late and I am panicking that I won't be able to order anything in time.
I'm 5'6", size 6 in the normal way and will be 32 weeks with twins so I am absolutely HUGE. I have some vaguely smart, very loose dresses I've been wearing for work, but even they are getting tight at the front.
Any thoughts? Any idea where I could look? I haven't seen anything so far! I'm also a bit worried about travelling to this wedding and all the what-ifs, but that's another matter...
I have a couple of weddings coming up and have a lovely dress from Seraphine. Might also be worth looking at John Lewis - their maternity section includes Isabella Oliver and Seraphine and you can do a click and collect from Waitrose if you have one nearby. They also have a very good returns policy - gives you ages to get stuff back!
I went to a winter wedding at around 32 weeks (not twins, though) wore a floaty Grecian style maxi dress from Jojo Maman Bebe which I had already from a summer wedding. I don’t wear maxi dresses usually, as I am too short, but they do work well with a bump!
Agree that the main thing is to make sure there is a chair for you at the bar or wherever. I was fine sat around the table for dinner and speeches, even had a short boogie on the dance floor after, but was a bit stuck when everyone moved on to the bar area as there was no seating and I couldn’t stay on my feet any longer. Felt like a bit of a Billy no mates sitting at the round table on my own waiting for everyone to come back, but had a great time regardless!
Have fun, and hopefully get some nice photos in full bloom!
I've ordered 2 in the end and I'll send back whichever I don't end up choosing. Fingers crossed! Thank you for all the help
Nice to hear from sby else who is 32 weeks with twins! I am pretty knackered too, but weirdly I am actually better with walking than standing. I know it's going to be sooo hard to resist doing a little ceilidh in one of the calmer numbers, but I think DH is going to kill me if I try. (We recently rewatched practically all of Downton Abby and I think he is freaked by Lady Mary doing one ceilidh dance and practically going into labour on the spot...)
