Hello,

My Dad is having a civil ceremony next month. It's a tiny do with just my sister and I and our 2 cousins. It's taking place at a registry office albeit a posh one in a nice area. Then on to a rather sophisticated restaurant for dinner and drinks. I want my dad to be proud of me, also to look stylish, but not too "weddingy" help?!

What size/shape/colouring are you?

What's your budget?

Thanks for reply - sorry for my lack of details! I am size 10, 5,11" with long medium brown hair and pale skin. My usual style is kind of London-girl-ish but I want to go for classic and elegant for this.
Budget is around £80-£150 for the dress. I have a bijillion shoes & bags so could probably match them to a dress or skirt/top combo

I'm kind of stright up and down/slightly pear shaped.

coast Alva dress looks nice with black accessories not too weddingy.

Damn it - have to dash and can't look at these. Thanks so much and back later grin

Well, surprise surprise... of all of the below I like Teathers "over-budget" best!! Oh well, budgets were made to be broken grin

Will try on in the week.

Thnaks so much. I also love the coast one but dad and future step dad have said they don't want anything to be over the top and I think it is a bit too special. Spoil-sports!

The L K Bennett is lovely and I'm sure you'd get plenty of wear out of it as it's versatile too. Hope you have a great day.
