Wedding dress help please!

Hello fashion experts! I'm looking for a knee length wedding dress, and I loved the one I've linked, but it only goes up to size 12 and I'm a 14.

I love the layer of lace over a slip, and I like it low cut as it's flattering for larger boobs. I definitely want knee length. Colour very negotiable though I'm fair and look terrible in beige.

Any suggestions please? I am terrible with this stuff and also have a 9 week old who hates shopping...

Thank you!!

As no fashion experts have answered, you're stuck with me who knows little about style but can certainly google with the best of them.

Anyway, their own size chart alleges that an L is a 14, so you might be ok (38" bust, 31" waist, 41" hips")

I think I remember that he used to own all saints, so I had a look on there and they had this one

Which is a bit longer than knee length, and not lacy grey and is sleeveless, so really fits the criteria to a t hmm but it is nice.

Some more links

Sparkly. Coast 195

Delicate colour. Coast £175

Hopefully this bump up the hit parade will get you some more help smile

What about these?

SirToffeeDoris, All saints sounds a great idea, it's a bit smart for me normally but i'm making a special wedding effort smile The dress doesn't have to be wedding colour, i like bonkers colours really. All Saints should have some nice greys though which I also like.

Allthingspretty great idea re tk maxx, hadn't thought of that.

Cremeeggsrock, I actually tried those dresses on in a shop in Brighton under a different name, which is weird because i have hardly tried any. I really loved them but found them slightly too expensive for the quality, however these are a bit cheaper! But now I wonder who's stealing off who? Brighton shop is and they call Dita dress Olivia.

i've bought this one on creme eggs's advice

Please tell me how to get matching shoes! I'd like to wear birkenstocks but that might not be posh enough even for a casual wedding. Definitely flats though.

Do I need anything else? I bought the cardigan, sorry, 'shrug', the website suggested. Do I need Bridget Jones underwear?
