not much choice....

galaxy Mon 21-Feb-05 21:43:59

Dunno I didn't browse...just know someone who bought a nice outfit from there. What about Formes or going for a Monsoon dress in a larger size?

When I was pregnant with DS and went to BIL's wedding, I was about 20 weeks pregnant I think. I wore a dress from Blooming Marvellous (I'll see if I can find it on line).

One of DH's cousins is getting married "this summer" - I am hoping it is towards the beginning rather than the end as DS2/DD is due on 22nd September .

its going to be a "big" do - church meal reception the works, and i really need something that will be comfortable, but stylish.... obviously dont want to outdo the bride, but something that will make dh go "wow" - he is wearing a kilt, so i cant really take on board what colour shirt or anything he is wearing!!!

PiccadillyCircus Tue 22-Feb-05 10:38:24

Have found it here .

I wore a pashmina type thing with it and a large hat. I looked lovely .

I'm normally an 8-10 and got it in a size 8.

Oh and the wedding was in London and we walked from the church to the reception (around Chancery Lane I think). DH and I went into a cafe and he got a coffee (can't remember why). For some reason I was carrying one of the bridesmaids bouquets and DH was in morning dress so I think we looked as if we had just got married .

Will you need maternity clothes being only 18 weeks. With ds I didn't start showing till 22ish weeks and dd was a bit earlier at 20 weeks.

jessicasmummy Tue 22-Feb-05 10:53:48

well, you see i dont know.... but im quite tubby at the moment and i just keep thinking im going to be massive! as i was something a bit loose fitting would it be best to buy maternity?

Jm

I bought a dress from Next Petite Maternity in anticipation of a Christening when I would have been around 5 months with my 2nd - it was still so huge even then, and never got worn even at term, so I'd go for something from a normal range but with a bit of give, iyswim, or a maternity skirt with button elastic and a special looking top.

What sort of colours do you go for? Are you a girly pink person or an earthy neutral tones kind of a gal?

jessicasmummy Tue 22-Feb-05 14:47:38

girlie pink im afraid!!!!

WestCountryLass Tue 22-Feb-05 14:55:44

Ah no, i'm a girly pink girl too but best ti find something in right colurs as otherwise no good. Will have a look...

WestCountryLass Tue 22-Feb-05 15:00:05

Think you might have to wait until more spring/summer stuff comes out as very drab stuff at Next and Dorothy Perkins etc at the mo :-(

jessicasmummy Tue 22-Feb-05 15:02:13

thanks for that.... hopefully it wont be too long. really want to get it all out of the way before i start feeling too tired to shop!

GIN200&CAT=MO51&SPCAT=IM&CODE=A1733&TYPE=F&SHOP=MAT

Both would look lovely with a pashmina (they aren't chav are they?).

Maybe the ruched round tow court shoes in pink:

and the bow chain bag in cream:
