Any suggestions for a BFing dress to wear to a wedding?

A very good friend is getting married at the end of August. DS will be 16 weeks old by then and I plan to still be exclusively BFing on demand.

I've just realised (in my PFB haze!) that I need to find something to wear! I'd like to find a smart stylish BFing dress.

If it helps, I'm 5'6" and currently a curvy size 14-16.

Any ideas?

Look for something with front buttons and then wear a little cami underneath. A wrap-around with a cami works well too.

Or, anything that will allow you to pop your boob over the top of it and take a pashmina.

I was in a similar situation and had a wrap around dress which I could get easy access to the boob from. I didn't worry too much about how discreet it would be as I went back to my room to feed. My main criteria was therefore access rather than privacy!

Thanks! Will scour the net for something with buttons later.
I guess I could have a pashmina as part of my outfit but not sure if that'll be too fussy with DS.
I've suprised myself by not being too bothered about BFing in public. There probably will be a corner or room I could use but I usually just feed wherever I am. I don't want to draw attention to myself on the day though and would like to look just as glam as a non-BFer IYKWIM!

I had a pashmina too, for warmth rather than anything else. I'm not bothered by bf in public either, but for some reason less bothered by strangers seeing me do it than people i know!

Hope you find a great dress and have a lovely time.

Thanks everyone! I have gone for this

oh that dress is lovely and both colours are beautiful! So much nicer than boring old black

I'm sure you will get lots of use out of it as its not to wedding-y and will be lovely at Christmas with a shrug or short cardi

Thanks! I actually prefer the other colour (slightly!) but the colour scheme the bride is having is "crushed raspberry" so I decided it was too similar and to go for the teal instead.
