My brother and his fiancée are getting married in just over a week. It was only decided about two weeks ago as she is leaving the country for work. I am very lucky to have been asked to be matron of honour at the wedding and I need to find a dress to wear. The wedding is very low key though (although it is a church wedding) and I want to make sure I don't choose something more bridey than the bride!
This is the dress the bride is wearing. I'll put a couple of things I quite like in a post below.
If it helps I am 35, 5'9" and a hourglass size 8. I have long brown hair and am pale and covered in freckles! Please help me. Thank you in advance
The style of the blue dress is ok although personally I think the frilly bit is out of kilter with the plainer style of the bride's dress. Have you gone for the mid - dark blue to pick up the colour in the bride's dress? One of the other colours in the bride's dress may be better for a spring / summer wedding as the blue is rather dominant. Could you find (and could you wear) a similar style in one of the pinks?
I did want to find something in a pink but everything I have seen is very pastel pink and I was worried that might clash. I think I need to keep looking and go for the blue if I don't find anything else. I was trying to match with the blue in the dress but maybe it is a bit too bright.
