Black and White wedding outfit

I need help! Friends have taken the Ascot scene from My Fair Lady (ASCOT) as the theme for their summer wedding. Can anyone find me a nice dress to wear. No more than £100. The ones I've found so far are too 'black' and seem a bit sombre for such a happy occassion.

TIA

Any of those any good? Do you have a particular style of dress you want?

Not sure how My Fair Lady any of these are though - just looked for the colour combination!

This would be great with a wide brimmed hat, gloves and a b&w striped wrap

You must wear a hat if that's their inspiration, surely?

Bee Smith always makes fabulous headwear. IMHO something like this or thiswould be perfect for a theme like this.

I don't know if it has already been linked too (off to look through in a mo), or what size you are, but, I love this

OP? Such a nice brief! Please don't disappear on us wink

Some hats cheaper than the lovely and unbeatable Bee Smith:
wee hat
saucer hat
white
small saucer
big hat
another big job
and again

and, yet another dress for you to look at

We've all concentrated on the b&w thing but it looks like a soft grey / silver outfit would be totally in keeping too.
