and I have just seen this dress. ebay dress What do you think? I'm 25, will it be too old for me? Could I wear a bra underneath do you think? The wedding is next month, on midsummer day so it should be nice weather. We have a full invite, quite a big do. I haven't ever been to a proper wedding before so I am going to need MN guidance... !

no it isnt tarty flossam but wearing no bra under a white dress if you have dark nipples is rather tarty in my book

Thats lovely You can get some very reasonable pashminas on ebay to keep you warm later.Good shape for small boobs big bum I think it looks perfect Have fun xx

Would a fine knit cream cardie be a complete no no? I genuinely am clueless.

You will need a bra that is low in the middle IYSWIM. I don't think it is too old for you.

looks smashing, my sister in law early trendy twenties wore something similar with casual small kitten heel between the toe type sandals. Looked lovely.

Bozza Tue 16-May-06 14:32:08

I wouldn't go for cream cardie personally, would wear something that picks out one of the colours in the pattern. Maybe the pink?

Flossam Tue 16-May-06 14:33:06

Hmm, pashmina, yes sounds a good plan! Thanks for the offer Cod! . Will look out for bras. Will show DP tonight, if he likes it will try and get it.

My best advice for buying wedding outfits on a budget is buy something you like from a shop............

and then take it back afterwards!

I do it all the time!

In general no lie is told - I say "I want to return this" and the sales person says ok.

I can see why you disagree with it and I understand - I just think that consumers get screwed over so often it's quite nice to have the upper hand sometime - also why pay a fortune for something I'll only wear once.
