Wedding help!

Hi! Can anyone help me sort out a wedding outfit for early next month? I'd be v grateful.

For a bit of context... it's registry office, reasonably informal, in London, second marriage, and DH is the best man. We're a bit short of cash post Christmas and DH needs a suit, so I'm going to dress up something I already have. Also I'm totally un-girly so generally find working out what to wear for weddings really tough. So I like Cos, Zara, Hush, And Other Stories, Whistles for example, and tend to wear quite utilitarian / reasonably androgynous stuff. It's pretty unusual for me to wear a print, and I like quite structured architectural jewellery. I have really short hair - under cut with a bit of length on top. And despite all of this un-girliness, I am 'blessed' with 34G boobs.

I'm going to wear this dress -[[ ]] - in navy. With a camel crombie coat, thick tights, and my Hudson slightly heeled Chelsea boots. I feel really nice in it although the dress doesn't fit me like it does the models on the website (I refer you back to the 34Gs... smile). So decision made!

But I want some nice accessories. Something a bit different. I'm not much of a hat wearer but could be persuaded if it was the right one (i.e. not too wedding hatty if that makes sense). Possibly an interesting scarf. Some sort of bag (I carry a yellow satchel normally but think that's a bit worky).

Advice would be amazing! Thanks so much

I have a distressed silver bag a bit like this one but a bit bigger. I think it would go well with your outfit.

I'm picturing something in navy felt in your hair, perhaps like this bow

Or maybe something from Lynsey Walters

Sounds like a great outfit btw

Personally with a camel coat I'd wear gold but what suits your colouring best?

No idea what your hair is like but how about something like:

Bag wise how about something like


Or for something very bold and impractical which will girlify your outfit:
