Help me find a wedding outfit please.

I'm going to a wedding in a couple of months. I've been told no black, red or white/cream which is fine.

I'm a size 14 and 5'6 but have big upper arms and thighs hmm

I was thinking of a blazer, some sort of camisole type top and a knee length skirt.

Blue is a good colour for me. I was considering pale pink but could that be too close to red?

Any help gratefully appreciated smile

Any particular reason you want separates instead of a dress?

kneedeepindaisies Sun 12-May-13 17:13:12

No not really I just thought I might wear them again separately.

If you know of any dresses that would work I'd definitely consider them.

I'm hourglass shape and have biggish boobs and my legs are short.

I like this zara skirt and this lace coat which is very expensive but I reckon will come down in a sale soon as it is the spring collection.

What bossyfuckers

Why are they stipulating colours ?

kneedeepindaisies Sun 12-May-13 17:17:23

White because of the bride's dress, red because of the bridesmaid dresses and black because you can't wear black to a wedding apparently!

I like both of those Hear but not together. So maybe that skirt with a fitted blazer?
