Budget - low! I skimped on my wedding dress and have always regretted it. I suppose £200 tops, being realistic in what I can afford.

Size - currently 12/14, more 14 but am doing SW so hope to be a proper 12 if not a bit less by then.

I am short, 5'2. I hate my legs so nothing short. Equally, being short, anything maxi will swamp me

Apart from this, I am open to ideas. Though I do love quite like this

Oh... and I have curves. Big boobs. So nothing strapless or strappy!

Congratulations! How weddingy do you want to go? Do you have favourite colours?

I love that LK Bennett dress. They also do a matching jacket.

How about something like this greyish/green satin?

Or blue embroidered

I love this rose dress

Elegant cream

Hello Half thanks for your suggestions! I like floral patterns, the Phase Eight dress you suggested is lovely. DH says that I like dress patterns that would be used as wallpaper!!

What about showing arms / cleavage?

Where is the ceremony? Are you having flowers / anything else with colours to pick up on?

This is a good link to show lots of different options john Lewis wedding guest

I like cream with flowers

But there are a lot that are more bridal. Why not do a Personal
Shopper session at a John Lewis esp if you have regrets on your original dress - they could really help you try many different options and find a style that really suits

Hi Closer - the ceremony is in a registry office, haven't made a decision on flowers yet. I don't like the tops of my arms/bingo wings so would prefer them covered and no cleavage - one of the things I hated about my wedding dress was that they didn't alter it properly and they're all I can see in the wedding photos!

Cream the John Lewis link is exactly what I need to look at! Some gorgeous choices there. Thank you.

Pnutter, I homed in on the nutella cheesecake recipe so had to close their page grin

There are some really interesting dresses here

I love this one. It would be good to know how tall the model is.

There's a lovely Armani but sadly not in your size.

I love this Goat one
