Got a christening and friends wedding coming up- wedding smallish, reception at a bistro type place so not overly formal but would this dress be ok for both?

I'll be 7 months pregnant when going to these.

If it is ok what shoes can I wear I'm not good in heels and will be running around after a toddler on both occasions was thinking very low brown wedges would they be ok? And a brown cross over bag or is that too casual?
Thanks

Yes. It's lovely :-)

Hayels Mon 17-Aug-15 19:54:44

It's really lovely smile
I wouldn't say with brown accessories though with black.
But pretty much any other colour! What about a bright red?

Wishful80smontage Mon 17-Aug-15 20:05:05

I could do red- both occasions late sept. I need low heels or low wedge that I could walk in any suggestions?

burnishedsilver Mon 17-Aug-15 20:19:31

No to the brown accessories or a cross body bag of any description.

burnishedsilver Mon 17-Aug-15 20:20:19

Red ballet flats.

Wishful80smontage Mon 17-Aug-15 20:26:34

Are flats ok? Are they dressy enough. What bag is ok?

Dowser Mon 17-Aug-15 23:55:38

I couldn't talk you into something like this can I?

I'm so not a fan of ballet flats with a dress

Or something similar to these with a matching bag in a more affordable price bracket .

Forgot to say that the dress is lovely.

Hayels Tue 18-Aug-15 00:58:38

I like the last ones Dowser
I'm so rubbish with flat shoes and understand but LOVE these, and they're not too high and would be more comfy coz they're strapped on

Teal, a hot pink or plum would be nice too

Dowser Tue 18-Aug-15 09:35:16

Couldn't see link to first ones but yes last ones are nice.

Thanks all like the block heel pumps both and the last ones- would you go black in those?

I've seen these low wedges in next I like them but they are black- are black shoes ok? And would bag need to be black also?
Thanks rarely wear black as you can tell :?

nude shoes might work well.
small heel?
Bargain clutch bag
I also thing orange/tan would work well.

hellsbellsmelons Tue 18-Aug-15 14:50:20

Black will be fine as well.
As you will be 7 months pregnant I'd say you can do pretty much anything you want to grin

hellsbellsmelons Tue 18-Aug-15 14:51:51

think with a K!!!

IssyStark Tue 18-Aug-15 15:09:55

Definitely. I'd go for a colour for the shoes and a clutch bag (could be anything you want but brown or navy, maybe something bright like red, teal etc. Basically anything that you think you could get away with again with other stuff in your wardrobe.

If you aren't too comfortable wearing black, there are these options from vertbaudet in red or in browns, or from Izzy's Mum this jazzy print or this one in grey, blue or purple

Btw, they are all maternity and breastfeeding dresses so you can get a good lot of wear out of them.
