Help please, the dress code is party not rather than wedding but don't want to look like something that would sink the titanic. Can't afford Isabelle Oliver and will probably only wear it once.

Red? Quite summery though (though that might not be a problem - I was always pretty warm when pg)

JackieNo Wed 01-Oct-08 18:35:39

Darker and more wintry?

TillyScoutsmum Wed 01-Oct-08 18:39:20

cocktail dress

nice colours

££££ though. Ebay it after ?

I nearly bought Tillyscouts second link for my brother's wedding but ended up choosing this one I know you said you didn't want IO but they have 20% off at the mo and you could sell it!

Ooh - I love Tillyscoutsmum's second link - the shift dress. Gorgeous.

fruitstick Wed 01-Oct-08 20:30:27

These are all wonderful. Tillyscout, you in particular have excelled yourself. Thank you!

TillyScoutsmum Wed 01-Oct-08 20:34:50

Why thank you blush

I love that second dress - just need to get pg and have somewhere to wear it smile

I have a black halterneck maternity dress from a boutique in harrogate..bought when expecting ds...I paid £150 but never wore it as I did buy 2 outfits and opted for the other one....

Its a size 16, if interested you can have it for £50..?

I'm a 16 so, to be honest, the cake might just work!

TillyScoutsmum Wed 01-Oct-08 22:14:32

If you're going for cake couture - can I suggest 3rd across, 2nd down - its the one I've just ordered for my wedding (hence having the link blush)

shhhh Wed 01-Oct-08 22:51:57

ohhhh tsm, also looks lovely opposite, as in 2 across 3 down ...

TillyScoutsmum Wed 01-Oct-08 23:01:59

sorry - yes - that's the one actually. Good job I don't do crosswords isn't it ? blush

shhhh Wed 01-Oct-08 23:12:51

I hired an outfit for my brothers wedding when 8months pregnant, and doing a reading.

See if any where does this it worked well.

I chose badly though. i chose a pale pink tunic dress with matching coat, now looking back on photos I look like the queemn mothergrin

There is a quite a few websites that hire maternity wear. That way you can get something stunning for fraction of the price and not have to worry about wearing it again
