Wedding guest outfit advice needed

I'm going to a wedding the first weekend of June, I don't wear dresses or skirts, hate my legs, and my arms, tummy and face for that matter.

I'm a size 16/18 on top and bottom. I was thinking of wide leg trousers, I only ever wear dark colours so I was thinking of navy trousers, maybe a pastel coloured top and a smart blazer.

I am having trouble finding any trousers though and I have no idea on what style top. Would prefer the tops of my arms covered, nothing too low cut as have a large bust, don't want anything tight, I just have no idea really.

I haven't been to a wedding for about 9 years and don't really have a need to dress up so I'm really struggling, any help would be much appreciated, the stress of looking for something is driving me crazy.

I think what you have in mind is quite smart. I can think of linen blazer in navy, a silk or polyester cami underneath so that it is not clingy and flows nicely, and on the bottom trousers or a flow-y maxi skirt? H&M has nice ones.
Or if you are going to the beach:

How about a navy jumpsuit with heels & nice accessories?

I saw a woman on tv today who said she was an 18, she was wearing similar & she looked fab.

How about some culottes? There's a lot about at the moment and they can be pretty. Would you wear a floral or patterned pair of trousers?
