I have a wedding in july, country wedding in the afternoon, more on the casual side.

I was thinking of this dress. With some wedges and a cardi maybe?

I'm a post baby size 16 with no sense of style so please help.

Forgot to say, the dress in pewter.

The dress is lovely but I would go for a pashmina rather than a cardi if you need a cover up. Cardigans are a bit of a struggle with halternecks as you get gaps iyskim. Have you got a good supportive bra that'll go halterneck too?

I do have a multiway bra that i love. I do need a cover up, wedding starts at 3 but goes on all night or at least until my DC are tired. Which colour for pashmina and shoes would you suggest?

I'd go for a pashmina in cream, white or grey to tone in with the colours in the dress. (Are the flowers cream or white?) You've got a few other colours in the bottom of the dress you could match in with for shoes. Or you could just go with cream wedges and bag if you wanted to play it safe.
