I was planning on going down in jeans but my granny has said she'd like to send me some money to buy something nice to wear.

Q1. Is this dress too long to be a dress over trousers?

Q2. These trousers are nice aren't they? Maybe a sort of tunic / dress / top with them?

Q3. Shoes? <Wailing in anguish emoticon>

The dress is nice.

You cannot really be thinking of wearing those trousers to get married in can you???

BroccoliSpears Wed 10-Sep-08 00:06:31

What? I like them.

Oh dear. I HATE clothes shopping.

Brocoli won't want that on her wedding night.

lickleolme I love you
that was brilliant

Hello Broc,

Let's get this sorted eh? Don't worry about clothes shopping I am confident we can find something comfortable but gorgeous smile

I think that dress is too long for over trousers - would there be a reason you wouldn't want to show your legs? Even with tights?

The trousers are nice and def wearable. But you have excuse and money to spend if you wnat on something a bit different or special occasion - you may as well look at options.

I love white stuff this season and want to spend too much money there. this dress is lovely on, better than pic So I think your choice dress with fab shoes and acessories is great option. But am happy to look around more tomorrow.

I still hate clothes shopping, but I bloody love Mumsnet. grin

umberella Wed 10-Sep-08 07:54:54

pmsl!! that's going to keep me going all day lickleolme grin.

I've got a friend who's getting married in jeans and wellies with a nice cardy next week -I like that you're not doing it in a meringue BroccoliSpears. Also think white stuff's a good shop to get something from, their stuff is lovely smile

Beetroot Wed 10-Sep-08 08:00:03

your granny would not be happy with those revolting clothes.

you need something more fun

umberella Wed 10-Sep-08 08:04:42

BS, have you seen this site? They have absolutely loads of lovely things, AND a clearance section (which I am always trawling) -they have nice clothes too and bit more fun than white stuff too smile

umberella Wed 10-Sep-08 08:07:35

we need a picture of you really...

BroccoliSpears Wed 10-Sep-08 08:13:24

Oh I'd forgotten about Utam! I like that site. Will have a look. Good thought!

Those trousers are not revolting Beetrot. The dress is a bit I suppose.

umberella Wed 10-Sep-08 08:21:11

stick a pic up, then everyone can pitch in properly!

got to go to work now, bleurgh, but will check back later to see if you had a revelation -this is nice i think but might be too dressy/wedding-y. Lots of nice things in the clearnce bit actually....

<wonders if she can squeeze in some shopping time before heading off in 5 minutes..hmm>

teafortwo Wed 10-Sep-08 08:26:31

The white stuff dress you showed us is great!!!!

It is feminine but not girly. Stylish but human.

I would have very happily worn that over a pair of trousers to get married in.


Have a lovely day!

Beetroot Wed 10-Sep-08 08:29:25

the trousers are for everyday stuff (at best)

the dress is horrid

Beetroot Wed 10-Sep-08 08:30:29

I would wear jeans rahter than those.

Jeans and a over dress

Beetroot Wed 10-Sep-08 08:32:34

soremummy Wed 10-Sep-08 08:33:25
