Looking for a dress for an evening wedding reception

Hi all smile
Hoping you can help me with some ideas for what to wear to an evening wedding do. Being held in a function room of a local pub, bride would like everyone to be a bit dressy but I have no ideas...

Happy to spend iro £75 but will probably need shoes too. Would ideally like something that can be worn again, but I don't go to many dressy do's, so ideally something that can be dressed down a bit.

I'm 41, 5ft9ish, size 10/12 depending on the shop. Tend to feel quite self concious so usually avoid too short/too tight/high heels. Pretty or flouncy stuff makes me feel like an overgrown school girl...

Had a look on the Oasis site earlier when someone posted a link but the dresses looked so short...

Would really appreciate your help on this one. Thanks so much. Oh yeah, have one weekend in which to get in sorted too...

Ideas for suitable shoes to go with dresses would be appreciated too if that's not too big an ask...

Thank you, thank you, thank you smile

Coast have some beautiful dresses but can be quite pricey n maybe save money on the shoes n just get some heels from primark? Warehouse and oasis also sell gorgeous dresses :-)
