Hello. We're planning a very quiet wedding, just us, our parents and our 2 little girls. We'd like it to be at the end of August if we can get ourselves organised but it may get pushed back to October.
We'll get married in a nice registry office and then to a lovely local posh pub for some lunch (hopefully in their garden if it's nice weather).
What on earth do I wear? I'm totally overwhelmed by the Internet and wander around the shops aimlessly!!
I'm pale skinned, kind people describe me as English rose, dark brown hair. I generally suit quite bright colours but love blues the best - all shades.
I'm 5ft6 and about a 14 but shrinking slowly! I'm generally quite in proportion, have boobs 34f, and hips.
I hate my knees though so it would have to be knee length or below.
Can anyone inspire me? I'd also want to get shoes and a bag to match.
I'm not sure I want anything obviously bridal as I would quite like to be able to wear it again. Budget - maybe Â£300 -Â£350 including shoes and bag.
Wow. Thank you very much. I particularly like the lacy ones. I actually have a black one fairly similar and felt lovely in it when I wore it to a winter wedding last year. Is it a bit naughty if I buy a few online then take them back? I find trawling round the shops a bit overwhelming.
My normal style is fairly bland. I either wear wrap dresses or suits for work or jeans and a top otherwise.
I'm emerging from 5 years of sleep deprivation so slowly starting to find myself again! Sorry if that sounds a bit silly. I don't really have much of an idea about style!
Yes we feel exactly the same! I think we'd both be happy to bypass the wedding day entirely and elope...and maybe we still will!
Absolutely, order loads and return everything that doesn't work. I prefer trying stuff on at home so that is exactly what I would do. The lacy ones are nice, especially the lighter one, really pretty. ...which was meant to be this!
