I love this dress but is it a bit too tight for a registry office wedding?

Am thinking red cardigan & red shoes.

I think it's lovely, defo do the red cardi and shoe. Generally I think it's a case of whatever goes at registry office weddings- ive been to some where it's big dresses, top hat style then others with some simple frocks and open collars!!

Ooh that's lovely envy .

If you've got the figure for it, it'll look fab. Red sounds fine but I'd maybe go for accessories in the turquoisey teal or even the yellow. Fab dress!

Ha, I'm not sure I've got the figure for it, am size 10 mostly but only 5ft 0 so look bigger

I love it, I would certainly wear it for a wedding.

It's so lovely.. Perfect for a wedding!

Looks fine for a registry office wedding

MyGastIsTinselled Wed 11-Feb-15 20:46:30

Well I've ordered it, maybe back for further opinions when I try it on!

Good luck!

Yes it's fine for either church or registry office, with the added bonus of being able to wear it again...and again...and again.
It's a lovely dress.

MyGastIsTinselled Wed 11-Feb-15 20:55:51

And cheap toogrin

To think...I might have taste after all!

MrsDiesel Wed 11-Feb-15 21:52:50

Only thing I would worry about is the length, being short myself I fine mid calf difficult, I cant tell how long its supposed to be?

MyGastIsFlabbered Fri 13-Feb-15 20:08:21

Ok so it arrived & I LOVE it, but what do you think? I already had the shoes but need a cardigan & other accessories. Also not sure what to do with my hair as its pretty short these days. (Didn't include my face as I've got a stinking cold & look awful!)

Brandnewattitude Fri 13-Feb-15 20:13:10

Yes really lovely.

weaselsquirrel Fri 13-Feb-15 20:53:33

I want that dress but I could never pull it off as my thighs are too big and I don't have much in the breast department.

MyGastIsTinselled Fri 13-Feb-15 21:06:51

I'm honestly not fishing for compliments, but I wasn't sure I could pull it off either, definitely not blessed in the norks department and I do still see myself as fat (despite losing nearly 2 1/2 stone) but I'm going to go with it anyway!

MrsDiesel Fri 13-Feb-15 21:08:03

I think it looks lovely, your very slim!

weaselsquirrel Fri 13-Feb-15 21:10:02

What size did you need to order, just had a look on the website it is amazing! Can't believe I've never heard of it. I'm not much taller 5ft 2. Well done on the weight loss I have about 2st to loose, I've got down from 13st to 11st 6.

I ordered a size 10 & it fits fine. I also have the Ophelia in red which I bought for my 40th last year but that's in a size 12 & the chest gapes a little sad

Thank you everyone.

What's the quality of the dress like? smile

Love those styles.

Ohmygrood Fri 13-Feb-15 21:26:23

That's really gorgeous.
I think a green or yellow cardi.

Ohmygrood Fri 13-Feb-15 21:26:37

or a wrap

MamaLazarou Fri 13-Feb-15 21:36:20

It's a lovely dress and looks gorgeous on you, OP. Have a wonderful time.

MyGastIsTinselled Fri 13-Feb-15 23:37:00

The wedding's not until May but I was browsing and this one caught my eye.

Regarding quality, it seems like decent fabric and is well put together. My other one washes nicely (although is a pain to iron!).
