These trousers with a nice top? www.simplybe.co.uk/shop/joanna-hope-overlay-palazzo-trousers/vw145/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=8015#colour:Ivory,size:

Do you dislike skirts? I found this one www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_008020232909+PS_-1

I really love this - if you're happy to wear something non white/ ivory/ neutral ... www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_120010312543_-1

Monsoon does a bridal separates range - they're all skirts and tops, but you could mix the tops with trousers?

If you are mid 50's you don't want " informal" being frumpy though. I would keep it plain, understated and elegant
ASOS curve have a good range of clothes in your size.
May e something like cool wide leg trousers with a nice top?

Do you have a favourite pair of trousers a d top you could have copied in a wedding type fabric?

That way you can be very comfortable, while still looking special.

I'm getting married next year in a low-key, informal ceremony in Greece and I don't know where to look for an outfit.

I'm mid-50's, 2nd marriage, size 22. I really don't want to wear a dress of any style, they just don't suit me.

I'd even be happier to wear (smart) shorts, trousers or crops with a nice top and sandals.

Just wondering if anyone else has done anything similar and can give me advice about the best place to start looking please?
