Just looking for some ideas for my cousin’s wedding. I’m (very) early 30s, dark blonde, blue eyes, warm colouring, curvy size 10-12 - somewhere between hourglass and pear shaped.

Modest budget but I’m happy for suggestions in any price range for some inspiration! What would you wear?

What style of clothes do you like?

50s shape? Column? Old-fashioned tea dresses?

Any preferred (or loathed) colours or patterns?

Honestly, I don’t really know! I’ll give anything a try. I’d prefer to look classy rather than looking like I’m trying to look young/trendy and I like to make the most of my waist, but otherwise I wear pretty much any style or colour.

And this for a £££ option - but do you like the style?

I'm a similar size and shape to you and wore this dress to a wedding, which was pretty flattering and got a few compliments.

I'm in Spain so I hope the link works OK.

I’d have a look on a site like Wolf and Badger or inspiration/smaller brands - more interesting than anything on the high street atm and supporting smaller businesses!

Hope and Ivy have some very pretty embroidered dresses this one is lovely and has a great reduction in the sale which would work for a summer wedding.

That first dress in teal is lovely. With nice shoes and accessories you could get a few "occasion" wears from it.

Although I’ve just realised the second doesn’t meet your specifications. Sorry!
