wedding on saturday- have nothing to wear and miniscule budget.

I am going to a wedding on Saturday but have nothing to wear as have put on a bit of weight recently.

I am 5"3 and a size 12 but an apple shape (huge stomach). I quite like my legs from the knee downwards, but am not comfortable wearing heels.
I am quite large chested at a 34F so would need something that would allow me to wear a good bra.

Oh and bridesmaids are wearing red (sob) which is the colour that suits my colouring the most so I have to rule that out.

My budget is almost non-existent, but I do have a Next, Littlewoods, Very and Freemans account so would prefer something from there. I could probably stretch to £50 at the most if the dress was from elsewhere.

I know you like a challenge and am hoping that somebody could help me.

Oh and I'm 25 if that makes a difference, dark hair and eyes and olive (ish) skin.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

oasis have some lovely dresses for the £50 mark at the moment - sorry I know that doesn't match the account you have but I happened to notice as i was online there earlier...

Why can't you wear the same colour as the bridesmaids.

I did unintentionally to my BIL's wedding and nobody batted an eyelid.

Because I'm my friends plus one and she is a bridesmaid, and don't want to appear like the Single White Female woman! grin

I know I am paranoid but I would rather stay away from red if that makes sense?
