Has anyone seen a dress exactly this shape that would be suitable for a wedding?

I'm going to 2 weddings in Oct/Nov this year.

I'm after something exactly this shape:,default,pd.html?cm_mmc=Criteo-_-Women-_-Dresses-_-Baroque+Floral+Dress&_$ja=tsid%3a45091%7ccid%3a11371.583275

but a bit more weddingy/eveningy than that.

I don't mind if it's shortish as I'll wear with black tights. Has anyone seen anything?

Am a size 10/12 if that helps..

Thanks coffeenut - love the reiss one but hoping to avoid black, don't like the prints on the lk bennett ones but the first FC one looks like it could be a real winner!

Spandangled, not hear of that, will have a look thanks.

It's basically just an A line shift dress, which aren't too rare, so you should be in with some luck :-)

Thanks kaykayred, I need sleeves though.

Those are really nice but when I've tried that shape with a slight turn in at the bottom rather than a true A line they make me look pregnant sad

Keep an eye out in Coast, karen Millen and Banana Republic. I've seen a few similar dresses there but there's nothing at the moment.

There are a few on this page that might be suitable? And lots that aren't of course!
