What do I wear to a wedding?

I mean, really. As a guest.

I need a dress for a June wedding. I'm (at the moment) a size 12 with a belly (which I'm hoping will disappear because I've cut out digestives, chocolate and am doing Zumba).

It needs to have a covered back as I suffer from neurological itching and my back is an absolute state.

I love All Saints clothes, but having tried two dresses recently I don't think I suit the way they cut their dresses anymore as I just looked podgy - like I had a toddler tummy.

I'd prefer a longer dress as I also hate my legs, so if I went short I would have to wear tights.

I love this: www.amazon.co.uk/Desigual-Vest-Sole-Womens-Marfil/dp/B00A7729BE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359669543&sr=8-1 but I'm not sure it's right for a wedding. Any feedback? Is it too white? Not wedding-y enough?

I like things that are a bit individual. Love purple clothes. I'm 5'6, and have dyed red hair, shoulder length.

If anyone can point me in the right direction of something that might fit the criteria I would be SO grateful as I really don't like shopping for "occasions".

What about this one from Monsoon? Great drape to the neckline, would be v flattering, plus the gather at the waist would help your tummy.

Ps about the Desigual one, def not 'too white' but its very leggy, so if they aren't your favourite feature I'd avoid, sorry.

Similar-Ian to Desigual one but £35! www.johnlewis.com/fenn-wright-manson-camelia-printed-dress-print/p355931

Do you like this at all? Would be flattering on tummy and a great colour with your hair. www.johnlewis.com/allegra-by-allegra-hicks-martini-dress/p376341?colour=Navy

Hope some of those help! I'm the same size and shape, but this is more what I'd prob get, sorry if none of the above are your cup of tea!

Ok, one last dress... No idea if it'll be your thing, but this Hobbs dress would be fantastic for a wedding!

Thanks Tiddly! I like the Desigual-ish one - and hadn't thought of John Lewis for clothes! We've got one quite near us so I will have a wander around at some point this week.
