A friend is getting married on December 30th and I am mid-diet/weightloss with no idea what to wear.

I am mid 30's, 5'5", size 16/18, busty with big tummy, decent legs, like my arms covered, brown hair, pale completion and not a fan of huge heels.

All ideas gratefully received. Thank you.

Sorry should have said budget upto £150ish.

Hatethis22 Sun 22-Nov-15 22:40:00

Not this.

Will look for a more sensible suggestion.

ChristmasEvePJs Sun 22-Nov-15 22:52:27

fconfused I would certainly stand out in that!

Hatethis22 Sun 22-Nov-15 23:23:38

Sorry blush

How about this?

That's nice. Thank you.

I already have THIS that I got at easter and wore once. I am wondering if I could have this shortened and nipped in a little. Or would it look daft?

Low tack masking tape on the inside of the fabric to shorten it, clothes pegs at the back to nip it in and take some selfies.

Would wearing a black dress at this wedding be ok? Some people can be funny about it.

Great idea, will try asap to see if it looks ok. The bride wears black a lot so not worried about that.

Would leave lots of budget for pretty shoes and a new bag!

I would wear that dress long just get it taken in.

Oo I am also at a wedding on the 30th and have decided on a navy dress with a gold spangly belt - ill get a link.

PennyHasNoSurname Mon 23-Nov-15 07:42:32 I just think it has a festive feel to it with the glittery belt]]

Oooo very festive. I love it but that would hit me in all the wrong places.
