Going to a wedding at the end of June near Toulouse where it will probably be quite warm. I know the French don't get as dressed up for weddings as in the Uk, so want something more on the smart casual side.
I'm a Size 14/16 who doesn't like exposing my arms, so would prefer something with sleeves. Would also love some fun shoes to go with the outfit but nothing too high or which will give me loads of blisters. I really need some inspiration! I have freckles and auburnish hair.

Thanks UKGIRL - I do like the first two - really want sleeves if possible. Prints may be a bit too bold for me. Looking for something where I can feel completely at ease - not worrying about yummy, arms or sweaty patches under the arms iyswim!

I would love a few more ideas for outfit for wedding. Knee length, long sleeves (or something to cover arms), not overly formal, hide tummy and possibly in blues or greens. Budget up to £150.
Have been looking at the quite vintagey site which is mentioned a lot on here and love the dresses but don't know what they will be like with jackets.
Please help me! 41 years old so don't want to look too old fashioned - a bit of style yet not feeling self conscious would be great.

I rather like this Phase 8 thing, think it would look more casual with flat sandals and bare legs?

Conversely this jumpsuit would be quite cool maybe with silver blocky heels?

Do you need a jacket?? I love this

I have this from Dorothy Perkins for a wedding in June. It is a good length and comfortable. Comes in several colours.

Nice colour and wouldn't need a jacket.
Good blue for you?
You may find the sleeves too short?
Pink but a good shade with your hair?
Would you consider a jumpsuit?

Have you tried Nancy Mac? this is just lovely, this might work
House of Foxy? this is a great dress, extremely flattering
