Hi,
Oh stylish ones please can you help me decide on what to wear for a wedding in September. Its a civil wedding in a country house, late afternoon service leading into evening reception. Hopefully I'll be able to wear same outfit for a christening in October for which I will be a godparent.
I'm size 12, 5ft7,late 30's, curvy, light brown hair and usually go for browns, greens and teals ( if that helps ).

I would love to wear a dress as I usually wear trousers and quite like this and
this
What do you think? Can you recommend anything else that you have seen.
Thanks for any help

First one is nice but be wary of the length - I am 5'8" and mid-calf makes me look irredeemably mumsy. I need ban g on the knee or an inch either way.

style is excellent though, add shrug or cardi for christening and wedding ceremony then whip off for evening do.

NB the Monsoon ones with the ruched waist detail thus are unbelievablky flattering to curves, but I like the colours in yours better

Have a look at Debenhams they have a fab sale on at the moment. I bought a gorgeous prom style dress which was half price and wore it last night to a wedding and will be wearing next weekend to a christening too. Will try and do a link if I can.

Will have a look at Debenhams sale tonight bobbyb
