Hi
We have 2 weddings to go to this year - and as they are family weddings I will need 2 different outfits. Hubby is best man at the first so a new suit etc there.
I have started looking around and realise with 4 of us to kit out it is going to be expensive (2nd wedding in Aberdeen so husband and 2 sons will hire kilts).
The first in May I was thinking of maybe a linen suit or dress and jacket.
My stomach is what I will prefer to cover - always seems to be flabby.:confused: so nothing tight fitting in that area.
Looked on the Next website and that is all up to now.
Any ideas?
Irene

Littlewoods website is suprisingly good :D and great value for money (just depends if you mind buying clothes online and having to send them back if they dont fit). I got a fab dress on there just before Christmas, reduced to £11 from £30!

The last wedding outfit I got was a 'Debut' dress from Debenhams - actually the wedding before that I also got a Debenhams dress! Great place to go and as it gets closer to wedding season they get quite a big range in.

I've got some great bargains off of eBay recently. If you are going for separates, you may not have to go for a totally different outfit - just make sure the top is different as that's what will show in photos. Also keep an eye open in charity shops for accessories.

I will look at the Littlewoods site - no problem buying online.
I will try and post a photo.
I love and suit RED.
Just thought is it Debenhams that have personal shoppers? I will need help with all the accessories.:p
The first wedding in May isn't until 5pm and quite a 'relaxed' affair, the second wedding I don't know much about yet.
I am also hoping to drop half a stone before the first wedding so ideally would be shopping at the end of March?
Thanks for your replies.

Sue - Never thought about Ebay - should have as hubbie is on site so much.:eek:
Good idea about the seperates.
I am always wary of charity shops not sure why as I donate lots of stuff to the local ones.
All ideas very welcome.

I ike, I like.......... Where is that from Rainbow?
Just browsed the Debenhams site lots of lovely dresses - I will be over at Liverpool 1 very soon. Problem is hubby and 2 sons will not be much help (although they will want my input with theirs) - Will give my mum and sister a call.
Just realised another date for my diary is our school prom the Frifay after the first wedding.
I knew I would find help on here.

its a debenhams one, ive got stuff for weddings (and my prom) from there before, i'll keep looking though. i like doing stuff like this. you remind me of my aunty, shes married and has a teenage son, but they're no use when shopping so me and my mum (whos her sister) end up going with her! x

I was in M and S yesterday however as I was with hubby and youngest son - no chance of looking at stuff!!!!!!!!!! However saying that youngest son is very critical and if I try something on he says yes or no to whether it suits even when I colour my hair he often says doesn't suit you!!!! Or that is nice the same with his own clothes he knows what he wants!!!!
