Im a day guest to a wedding.

I have fallen in love with this....I have bought a pearl short length necklace to go with. Now just need a bag and shoes...

Im keen to add colour and to wear funky shoes/bag (by that I mean in a bright colour..I have fuschia pink shoes which are divine) BUT dh think cream/neutral colours are better.

Ideas please. Colour or neutral and colour suggestions please. TIA. X

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 20:42:09 I ok wearing cream to a wedding..?
Its a cival ceremony and the couple have been married before (one half anyway..)

Hmm - lovely dress, but not sure about the colour. Is it really cream, only it's described as 'snow white' on the link? Personally I'd be inclined to steer clear of white or cream, but that might just be me.

sorry, nice dress but i wouldnt wear it for a wedding, would look for something in another colour

i wouldn't either, but if you do, add colour. NOT cream shoes.

It is ok to dress in cream at weddings... here in Italy though grin. I'd go for silver sandals.

Tillyscoutsmum Wed 03-Jun-09 20:53:56

I'm not sure I'd wear white/cream to a wedding..... I'd be more inclined to go for the black with bright (fuschia) accessories

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 20:55:36

Maybe with a coloured jacket/cardigan over it, to add a large-ish block of colour.

Though I have to say, I think your DH is right - paler colours would look nice with it. If I was on a magazine, I'd be calling them 'sorbet' colours - pale lemon, purple, very pale pink, duck egg, those sorts of colours.

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 20:55:57

(obviously not all those colours together grin)

oranges Wed 03-Jun-09 20:58:14

sorbet colours are a nice idea - colour without seeming too harsh.

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 21:05:09

ah if I do wear it then i need to add colour as pastals and not bright..

Ok,will hav a look for the colours mentioned. Im a pink person BUT prefer bright pink as others make me seem to wishy washy iykwim...

Like duck egg blue

So cream is ok to wear...(i love the dress so much, thats all im listening to grinwink) BTW the colour is cream..

Hmm silver...not sure if silver would go..? Maybe gold..? dunno why, just seems with the necklace that gold would compliment it.? No..?

francagoestohollywood Wed 03-Jun-09 21:13:02

mmmmmmm from what I can see from the pics I'd say that silver could go quite well, quite romantic etc.
But if in RL it's more cream, then yes, gold would cretainly work.

But I love the duck egg blue suggestion too...

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:23:19

I think you could probably do duck egg and gold together.

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:28:34

Not, not, not this colour, but this sort of shape - kind of cropped boxy shape.

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:32:22

Actually, maybe this Boden coat in the aqua. But it depends how the length of it is with the dress.

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 21:37:27

ohhh jackieno, thats a lovely coat smile.

Now off to find other duck egg accessories..

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:46:10

Hmm - Duck egg and silver shoes? I still think gold might be better than silver though.

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:49:26

This says it's duck egg, but looks a bit dark to me.
scarf (but no way of telling if it's gold or silver sparkle)
Another scarf, not sure if it's formal enough though.

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 21:52:31

Not keen on the 1st shoes...look at bit (dare I say it...) old for me..blush

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 21:56:06

these but more turquoise than duck egg..?

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 21:59:41

Mmm - I know what you mean. They're a bit 'Come Dancing' aren't they grin.

Nice shape jacket but still a bit dark.

JackieNo Wed 03-Jun-09 22:00:39

Those Faith ones are pretty bright, I think.

shhhh Wed 03-Jun-09 22:09:28

Yeah, jacket is nice..

Yeah,shoes are more turquoise I shopping tomorrow so will have a look.

Hmmmmmmm... saw some gorgeous cream ones in Dune yesterday. still keen on cream..blush
