Guests likely to be dreadlocked middle class hippy types.
Actual wedding taking place in old mansion house so would prefer not to wear wellies the whole time.

What about Uttam or Yumi Popular with Kate Moss etc and can be dressed up or down.

BunnyLebowski Tue 18-Aug-09 17:52:32

Ah we need SO much more info!

Your size, shape, colouring for a start. Your usual style, likes and dislikes.

Your budget?

note namechange mid thread.
must stop doing that.

You need something vintage that looks like Granny could have worn it, and a string of pearls. Contrast with wellies is good. Toast perhaps?

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 18:21:13

Ooh no, forget toast, just had a look at their current collection and all the dresses are foul. Hang on, I'll be back...

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:23:14

i like the pattern on this uttam dress

but the style is all wrong.
too short, too puffy around the middle etc.

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 18:26:18

Uttam black dress in DP?


Heated Tue 18-Aug-09 18:28:38

Damn ,Lulubee, but you're good at this! grin

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 18:30:17

Or maybe a bit more classic, like this

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:30:36

yup nice.
would need to wear a cardi though.

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 18:31:04

Fanks grin

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:31:21

Dress code: smart, bright colours and hats of all types. It could be muddy and wobbly.

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:32:20

ooh that's purdy.
maybe a bit pale for me though. i do better in stronger colours.

Heated Tue 18-Aug-09 18:34:51

The [[ Uttam dress] is here too, and also in another colour, but think the black is better.

BintOfBohemia Tue 18-Aug-09 18:35:31

I've got that red dress in blue - it's loooooovely, and very flattering. Wedding sounds fab!

aarghhelp Tue 18-Aug-09 18:39:56

I bought a pair of these yesterday. They would look good perhaps in this context? (assume you are guest and not bride) Hunters do white wellies now for brides...

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 18:47:43

I can't link to that Utam dress? Want to seee!

I love the fabric on this dress, not sure if you're happy with strapless?


Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:54:55

they have some nice welly patterns on there.

what red dress bint?

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 18:56:50

i have a dress similar to that in brighter colours, with optional straps and a shrug.
forgot about it.
i'll go try it on.

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 19:22:58

nope, my monsoon dress isn't cool enough.
i look like an oversized fairy.

Lulubee Tue 18-Aug-09 19:25:28

Dress should be slightly above the knee to look good with wellies I think, and also chiffon/floral is a good contrast...

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 19:32:35

the look

but the dress must be knee length

Platesmasher Tue 18-Aug-09 20:53:22

simple purple dress?
