So - have been invited to a v. glam black tie wedding. Presumably that means long. If knee length, have various options, but my sense is proper girly GOWN is what is required. Where on earth am I going to find such a thing without spending 4+figures?

Have a look at Justlastseason - lots of evening dresses and cocktail dresses at good prices. I like these ones:
Pretty - but the long bit might be a pain, also in green
Possibly more practical?
very screen goddess

House of Fraser also have a good range of gowns (their word) at reasonable prices:,default,sc.html#,default,sc.html?prefn1=Style&prefv1=Gowns&fix&spcl&ajaxsearchrefinement

When I went to a black tie wedding recently, I wore a dress quite like this one, just it had extra sparkles around the waist. It definitely wasn't out of place, there was a mix of women in long and cocktail dresses. I just put some bold jewellery with it.

Is it an all day invite or just the evening?

Try ASOS - specifically the Jarlo dresses are beautiful IMO or Chi Chi London

Ooo - some good ideas there. Many thanks. Who knew House of Fraser did such things??? It's an afternoon/evening thing which makes me even more tempted to go down the long route.
