After trying on what feels like squillions of frocks for my sister's wedding next month, I've found a lovely one from Monsoon. Doesn't seem to be on the website now but it's grey and pinks, flowery (but not in a naff way) and silk. I'm 5ft 9 and it's down to the floor pretty much, sleeveless and v-neck with a wrap-over effect under the waist and a tie belt from the back. i would normally wear flip flops but need something smarter for a wedding - what would you suggest? I think heels and a maxi are not quite right. Need help! I'm a bit stuck. Thanks all.

I'd go for some smart sandals - with pebbles/gemstones on.

Definitely wedges, tan or as neutral as possible, they always look the best with Maxi's it's all about balancing the length etc.

These would look nice with the grey www.sarenza.co.uk/san-marina-lanca-s2715-p0000036803?ectrans=1&awc=2780_1310570178_fbf5b3290c14fc0115c908a5cc455340

I 100% agree about maxis and heels not being right for one another. How about something like these luscious Kurt Geigers?

Nude ballet pumps as you already have the height and the dress can be properly showcased.

checked out both links, they're nice. think silver rather than tan as dress is silk and needs something smart i think. will have a look at shopstyle, thanks.
