One pregnat lady, three summer weddings

One in France, at which I will be nearly 5 months
One in Czech Republic, at which I will be 6 months
One in Greece, at which I will be 7 months.

Please note the Czech nuptials are a fashion photographer and top model, so bound to be lots of scarily glamorous, perfect people there, and I am easily intimidated, so need to look as good as possible.

I am 5'10", pear-shaped but not too chunky with it - usually around 10 stone 10lb, currently 16 weeks and just over 11. Judging from pregnancy with dd, I carry pretty well. Big tummy, everything else stayed more or less the same (thank god) Let's hope this baby is the same.

Have my heart set on something long and halter neck, vaguely 70s I guess, a bit boho, hippie, yet glam at the same time. Anyone seen anything that might work?

I posted this on the style board too so forgive me if you read this twice

I have a similar dilema. My husband is best man at a good friend's wedding in October I will be 6 months pregnant. I have already started researching the perfect outfit. I saw some really pretty dresses on Isabella Oliver but pricey. However, it may be an investment if you wear the same dress to all three weddings. Here's the link: www.isabellaoliver.com . I especially like the white halter maxi dress. Let me know what you think.

I love the white halter maxi, it is exactly what I wanted - but white to a wedding? Is that okay?

I had the same dilemma - wedding at 5 months, posh day out at 6 months and another wedding at 7 months - and I bought Isabella Oliver's black halterneck top. It fits perfectly as it just has really long bits that you wrap round until your tummy is suitably covered (!) and then you can pair it with white trousers, a lovely jewel-coloured flowing skirt, etc and then treat yourself to some luxurious accessories! I got loads of compliments on it and felt really comfortable as well as fairly glam.

I love mine as I too just have a bump and wanted something that I could show off my (relatively) skinny arms & shoulders in!

As an added bonus, you'd be able to wear it after your baby is born as you can just wrap it tighter.

Have fun!

I know what you mean. I think go for it and maybe buy a different colour pashmina for the ceremony. Then in the evening when everyone has seen the bride you can take it off. This maybe a cheap way of making your dress look different for each wedding.

You could dye it? I wouldn't it could go terribly wrong

I think I'd be okay at the first two weddings as both brides are quite non-traditional etc - but the Greek one could be a problem as I think it is going to be "a big fat greek wedding" hundreds of guests, greek bride, very very traditional - what are you going to do? wouldn't dare dye it although would love it to be burnt orange or turquoise or something (am dark, you see)

Not sure yet. I saw a dress at Laura Ashley in the sale in a size 16. I'm usually a 12 so I was thinking of buying it and then getting my MIL to adjust the shoulders etc for me. But still unsure as this is my 3rd pregnancy and I could be massive by that stage.

how about this one?

This comes in lots of more vibrant colours.

NOt sure what your budget is, but this is rather spectacular.

JackieNo Fri 29-Jun-07 21:10:51

Or this (strangely distorted picture).

And another. Not sure about this - it's a love it or hate it one, I think.
