on this in blue or red for a wedding.

Would also welcome any other suggestions!

very nice but then I am a zara fan. The blue is better than the red I think, bit more classy for a wedding.

I like it and agree the blue is classier. You'd need good legs though - it looks quite short ?

onehellofaride Wed 20-Jul-11 13:31:27

I was thinking the blue to be honest, probably get more wear out of it! Don't like internet shopping at all I'm convinced I will hate it when it arrives. That is the only dress I have been able to find though!

It does look very short shock. Though probably the model is quite tall, and she's wearing serious heels. Personally I wouldn't, because it's so short and I'd prefer something with more of a waist and a fitted shape. But it could look nice if you have the figure/legs for it.

I prefer the blue, especially for a wedding.

If you are very tall it is too short for a wedding.

Otherwise I like it but I am afraid it is one of those styles where you need to be slim to carry it off.

It is a lovely dress, but I think it is a bit too short for a wedding.

duchess you haven't met the bride grin

I'm 5'6" and a size 8.

Not sure whether it's 'the one' but at the minute it's the only one confused

arch don't really want to spend more than £50 as it is not someone I am particularly close to (although DH is best man confused). Love the dorothy perkins dress but not sure about one shoulder IYSWIM.
