    Thats a beautiful dress.

    NOW don't be going on with the hippo stuff, you just need a dress that flatters your shape hun. Go to debenhams, get the personal shopper to help you. Seriously, you'll look beautiful - especially with the award winning smile xx

    Go to a wedding dress shop and ask if they have any bridesmaids dresses on sale or if you can buy one off the peg. It's not easy to match with a coloured wedding dress but for that I would go with a pale blue or even a red!

    And as Leah said, less of the hippo talk! I don't think Debenhams go up to a 20 in their Debut range, I don't think they even do an 18!

    Can you travel to somewhere else? I know my local one that I use for most weddings goes up to a size 32 and usually has a variety of sizes in stock.

    i did think that but im really stumped on what to wear. Can you wear black??? A short dress with tights and heels??? Ummmm hes wearing a dark grey suit apparently and shes wearing the navy.

    I have looked at these online....dont know if they would be any good...or ok?

    I don't think black would be suitable and I would steer clear of navy if that's what colour your mum's wearing. How about silver grey? Is it a registry office do? if so maybe you could wear a trouser suit.
