Any ideas for a cheap but nice maternity dress for a wedding?

Pretty casual wedding. Outdoor event that is doubling up as bride and groom's child's first birthday party. I want a casual-ish but lovely looking maternity dress. Have been managing so far at events with a lace black dress so I can save my money to buy clothes after the baby's born, but it's really not appropriate for in the day. I hate having to spend money on a dress that I won't be able to wear in a few months.

I'm 30 weeks pregnant, size 8 with a fairly big bump. I like clothes that cling to the bump and are fitted under as well as above the bump; empire line etc i just feel big rather than pregnant. I like a v neck or wrap dress and on or slighty above the knee as I'm only 5'2".

If anybody has any suggestions I'd be very grateful smile Will probably wear with nude coloured wedge sandals if that helps.

Oh and I have toddler dd to run after all day so needs to be comfy too.

I just got a maxi dress from new look, my brother just got married I'm also 30 weeks and also chasing a toddler around and a size 8! Will try and find it was only £15 smile

Oooh I like that h and m one. Didn't think to try asos either. I'll have a look at the new look one when I'm not on my phone.

Thank you, lots of ideas you've given me. I hate ordering online as need to try on first so going to try the shops this week, if any of them actually do any maternity in store.

This one is nice, IMO. http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_103020881743_-1
Don't think many shops stock maternity anymore...I just buy online and return if they don't work.

Quite a lot of maxi dresses I would say you don't need to get maternity so something to keep in mind to give you more options smile

I don't any think maternity apart from jeans because of the comfy bump band smile
