Soooo myself and dp have decided to get hitched in Vegas this April, the holiday has been booked for ages but we only recently decided we may as well throw In a wedding while we're there, I am not on top of things 🙈 The ceremony is an evening ceremony in a quite traditional garden type thing, we then plan to head out with our friends (who are the couple we're travelling with) to dinner, casino, drinks and maybe a club so I ideally need a dress to take me through all of this, not too weddingy or expensive but also I do want people to be able to tell I'm the bride 😂
I was thinking something knee length, with sleeves or a mesh overlay as I am quite top heavy and a size 14-16 (hopefully more a 14 by the time April comes)

I would so appreciate some help as this seemed like a great idea at the time and now I am freaking out I have no idea what to wear!

I LOVE the idea of a white jumpsuit. Team it with a really gorgeous hair accessories and a bouquet and heels. You can ditch the bouquet later on.

Oh la redoute have 30% off. I got my dress from there a few years ago. It was gorgeous

Would something like these work do you think:

Dress 1

Dress 2

or maybe a top & skirt combo:

Top 1

Amanda Wyatt style

or maybe something like a Watters bridesmaid (but in Ivory or white)
