What on earth do people wear to weddings?

I know that sounds ridiculous, but I have only ever been to weddings where I was a bridesmaid. I've been invited to one just as a guest in a couple of months and I don't know where to start looking for something to wear.

I'm assuming it's not going to be mega posh as it's a registry office and out to a restaurant afterwards thing. I don't have a fortune to spend. I can't wear dresses as I'm different sizes on the top and bottom and they look dreadful on me. Can anyone advise me? Any shops that would be your first port of call?

Something elegant and glamourous. If you are not into dresses, how about a beautiful full skirt, a fitted top and a cardigan (like the vest/little cardigan posh has been seen sporting lately - honastly they are nice)

No advice but discovered Inis Online today and they have lots of different designers and brands - might be worth a browse for ideas?

Otherwise, the usual - Monsoon, Hobbs, Designers at Debenhams.

Usually skirts and pretty flowing things in pastels

DO NOT do what i did and go in a black shirt with a black and orange/pink skirt. I stuck out like a sore thumb!

Well, for example debenhams 1



Wear with a sleeveless cami top/blouse and thin cardi, dressy accent jewellery and pretty sandals. You can also wear it with birkies/sandals in summer and boots in winter.

A dress. High-ish heels. A smart bag. I go to the hairdresser for a blow dry and I wear foundation and then usual make-up.

I have these sandals but these new lookare cheaper. If you go for a silver you can wear them with almost anything.

Ooh Jewel's French Connection skirt is lovely.

We did registry office and restaurant lunch and you really don't need to be very formal as a guest imo
