My DB is getting married in the summer, church service followed by reception.
I am travelling over from Australia for the wedding, high street clothes shops here are pretty dire, and I am very wary of turning up in the UK with 3 days to find an outfit. I just have work clothes and jeans/casual clothes, not much beyond that.
So I've been looking online at those cheapy stores which lurk at the bottom / side of MN threads, amongst others. I'm not sure how sensible this is, but I have 7 months to go and can wait for delivery from China or wherever.
I am 5'6", a somewhat wobbly size 16, and am aged 45 (and a bit) with silver/grey hair.
What do you think of these dresses? I'm concerned the silver/grey ones might (a) blend with my hair too much and (b) look a little mother of the bridey. I'd rather have arms slightly covered. They are however bloody cheap, so I'm quite happy to wear once and never again look at the photos!
