Wedding guest dress needed at 15 weeks pregnant. Help!

First time posting in S&B so please be gentle.

I am 12 weeks pregnant and am going to a wedding in 3 weeks. It's my 2nd baby so my tummy has popped out already and I feel like I am looking fat at the moment!

I went shopping today but my search for a dress was fruitless really. I am usually a size 10 so tried on a few size 12 dresses that seemed an ok fit.

Style wise I need something that is not black and falls on the knee. Not a short dress as I hate my knees! I am 5ft 4 and will wear heels. I would ideally like a dress that is a mulberry colour, navy or a deep purple. Like block colours and was thinking maybe something that flowed from under the boobs?

The wedding is taking place in a fairly posh place, so I need to dress up.

Can anyone help me please. Shopping today with my 17 month old in tow was an utter nightmare!! Combined with Christmas shoppers I was tearing my hair out!!

I got 2 maternity dresses from Asos for weddings (both reasonable price and no shoppers to contend with from home)
Also got 1 from h&m (been to 4 weddings and a christening this yr all whilst preggers!)

Thanks Awakeagain. I will check ASOS out. Was concerned a maternity dress would look too big on me just now? Guess I need to try them out.

I had a lovely knee length teal dress from asos maternity last year. I got a couple of wears out of it at Christmas, however I was 30 weeks then.

If I were you at 15 weeks I would probably go for a cheapish dress in a size bigger rather than an out and out maternity dress I think. Dorothy Perkins had a couple of nice ones on here website last time I looked.
