I'm bridesmaid at a wedding in Australia in January (so summer). Bride has said we can choose our own dress and either all wear the same or each choose something in the same colour but our own style - considering the 4 bridesmaids are all very different ages, shapes and styles I'm gunning for the latter! But I'm struggling to find anything in the right colour.... Pale mint green! She likes lace and floaty dresses but I'm going to be running around after 3 kids so need practical as well - plus will be breastfeeding a 5 month old at the time (though I'm pretty handy on the sewing machine so could adjust most dresses to feed in). I'm a size 16 hourglass and don't want anything too short, too sparkly/embellished or really too bridesmaidy!
Where would you look?? Or anyone seen anything that might fit the bill? I'm very conscious that I need to find something now otherwise I won't get anything summery enough. Thanks for any help!

Beautiful, chic dresses. Lots of lace styles. The online store doesn't open until November, you can find them on Instagram (thth_bridesmaids) if you want to have a look at the dresses and contact via there.

Asos have quite a few in that colour. Here's a couple

House of Fraser had some bridesmaidy dresses in the sale at the weekend. Have a look online.

Oh that's funny! Asos and house of Fraser are literally the only places I've looked! I ordered one from asos to try and it was not good confused
Those th ones are lovely but all very long so I think I'd trip over while running after the errant three year old. Lovely look though. Thank you.

Oh love that one from chi chi - never heard of them - thank you! Is have to do a bit of a fix to the back to cover the old nursing bra but that's a definite possibility.

There's a few in mint on the chi chi site. I have three of their dresses. They fit lovely in me

Outlets are a good bet for off-season stuff. Coast has several.

Perhaps more blue than green - Phase Eight

Might need to do something to the back but could convert for feeding - French Connection
