what are your thoughts? Normally I'd avoid lemon but am open to it (of course it's brides choice, no problem with that). Thing is I'm a 16 , currently pregnant but wedding is not til next summer so won't know size til nearer the time. Quite pale, blondish hair.

Dress design is to be knee length ruches cap sleeved if that helps.

So question is am I going to look hideous?!

I am sure you will look fine smile Lemon looks lovely on blondes.

you'll look like a curvier version of this:

A bit faded into the background.Soft pastels shades for hairbands, shrug , jewellery and shimmer fake tan.

This is a friend right? ;)

I hope you've better colouring than me. I'd look like a rhubarb and custard sweet.

You might look hideous. That might even be the bride's aim!

But your role is to grin and bear it. And take a large wrap to cover most of it up for as much of the day as possible. And a hip flask.

Chances are, you'll look heaps better than you expect. And the important bit of the day isn't the clothes.

Can you ask for the same colour but a different design if she is stuck on that colour? Nowdays not all the bridesmaides have to wear exactly the same dress.
