...and also it is my father's wedding. What on earth am I to wear? Useful facts:
I am about 5'6, size 18/20, large of norks and have spent the last year wearing casual clothes on maternity wear. I have nothing suitable to wear and need HELP!!
cold draughty church / nice warm hotel?
journey between ceremony & reception?
formal / informal?
day / evening?
oh and budget could be up to £150/£200 ish if I could wear it again.
nice warm registry office then a walk, along the SEAFRONT(!) to a restaurant, then back along the blinking seafront to a theatre for a big party. In December. Madness.
you might find something here
but might be worth buying a goretex jacket or similar
1. buy a gorgeous coat
then we will work on what to go underneath
I'm thinking layers and crochet. Great that you can wear dark colours to Winter wedding
December weddings are fab. V romantic I think. (Guess when my wedding was???)
just say No to crochet
When in doubt, hit the vintage shops - you might find something spectacularly nice for a reasonable amount of cash - or something you can adapt.
Given the timetable you've outlined, aim for layers that can be added or removed, as well (elaborate shawls or capes for instance).
I love crochet stuff in Winter with knee length boots. Gorgeous
thanks for suggestions so far. I also have a fashionista 19 year old step sister to be!
OK - for coats, I've found one gold one, and one long jacket (probably not warm enough, but nice detail).
I have no idea what Susannah's doing here, but this might work (again, may not be warm enough), or a tuxedo coat.
YOu see, what you really want is something like this, but it's £189.
M&S have some velvet coats, but the pics are so bad you can't see what they look like:
another rose one, which looks v similar, but has a different product code
and ruched detail
satin rouleau one.
Also another gold one?
Definitely knee-length boots, or seafront walk will be a nightmare. Also you're going to need to superglue your hair in place or accept the windswept look as a given.
