Totally getting ahead of myself cos my daughter only just got engaged but.... she is my only child and I am so happy for her and her partner and really excited. So we are going into overdrive over her dress but I really don't want to be the frumpy one at the wedding. I will be 58, I am tall and not overweight but have big boobs. Fussy doesn't suit me, I love dresses which are simple and block colour and greens and muted plum colours suit me which would be great as it is an Autumn wedding. So no idea where to look (I spend my days in jeans and leggings) or what the heck, if anything, to wear on my head. I do have a generous budget and would pay up to around £1500 for the right outfit (but prefer to pay less!). Any ideas anyone of where the heck to start? x

I’d start at selfridges 😁

Some very beautiful non fussy dresses and trouser suits at The Fold https://thefoldlondon.com/product-category/shop-by-style/dresses/

Finery London also usually good for dresses, although a bit of a strange selection at the moment, worth keeping an eye on https://www.finerylondon.com/dresses#?sortBy=price&sortDescending=true

If you fancy something properly unique, these people make amazing bespoke dresses and suits https://www.distinctivelyme.com/view-range/dresses/

But something from ‘Suzannah’. I have a couple of pieces by her and they are beautifully made. She has great milliner recommendations, too.

When it's allowed again, book an appointment with a stylist at John Lewis. Very enjoyable experience, not pushy.
