I'm pretty new to Mumsnet and I'd like to thank the community in general for highlighting the practical/security reasons for marriage.
I've always been a Disney dreamer - love, castles, dress of the century type, but the recent birth of my 3rd child and finding Mumsnet has changed all of that
As a stay at home mum, I'm aware just how vulnerable my position is, and a few recent incidents have brought this reality home.
As a result, I've pushed for us to book a wedding. Although it's not my fairy tale, I'm keen to get it done.
Naturally this last minute approach has left me with limited with dress options. I have a C-section overhang/general mess so I would like something structured. I'm also big of boob so something that accommodates a bra is essential.
Because of time, I need something from the high street, and on a budget.
We'll do a 'big' event over the summer, but for now I need something affordable yet wedding-y, and I'm not bothered whether it's long or short.
Coast!!! I got married last Saturday in a skirt and top from coasts bridesmaid section. The skirts are really high waisted so will sit over and hide the area you’re uncomfortable with. I got so many compliments on it, I wore the blush colour.
Agree with Wed2B - I recently got married in one of their dresses. They have lots of designs in different sizes, you buy off the rail and then if you want alterations they give you a list of local recommended dressmakers.
Out of all the bridal shops I went to they were the most helpful and had a dress closely matching what I wanted to compliment my curvy figure xx
I got mine from asos for £70. There is some really nice wedding stuff on asos. Chi Chi London (online shop) do lovely wedding dresses too. I got my accessories (sparkly headband and shoes) from Dorothy Perkins
