    Hi, Im going to a wedding at the end of august. really stuck on what to wear...
    I found this and cant believe its only £14!!!

    Do you think its too revealing, shoulders showing etc, I could get a small cardi. wat about colour, is it too drab and dull for an august wedding? and what colour shoes would you put with it?

    Opinions please!

    Thankyou :)

    If the weather is warm enough I think it's perfect! Again depending on weather you could use a shawl/wrap. As for shoes maybe try and match the beading, can't quite see the colour gunmetal? silver? Match your shoes and bag with a silvery shawl/wrap and I think you'll be perfect!

    Its a lovely dress, not too revealing, but personally I'd want it in a bright colour - thats just personal preference though as that nude/peach colour does not suit me - its very on trend though, so if you have the skin tone to pull it off, go for it.

    Shoes & accessories wise I haven't got a clue - can you buy the ones that are pictured with the dress?

    Wow that dress is beautiful, I'd put either orange type colours with it or if that's too bright for you how about brown colours.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Think ill have a look round for a shawl. I have just returned from holiday, so hoping my slight tan will look ok with the nude colour.

    not seen any shoes like these, but ill have a proper look when im home!
    Orange may be good, make the outfit a bit brighter.

    Are shoulders showing ok then? iv not been to a wedding before, not sure if there is any thing i should/shouldnt do/wear.

    Thanks x

    General rules for wedding clothes are not too much flesh, but a strapless dress is fine and don't wear white or ivory. Some people say green is bad luck.

    I went ot a very posh wedding a few weeks ago and someone turned up in a very short playsuit from Primark. I kid you not....

    I love it. It is delightful .

    Coral would be lovely with it. A bit softer than orange.

    These shrugs could do it.

    You could buy some sheer organza fabric in a gold colour with a shimmer. (John Lewis is best bet) hem the ends and keep it together in front with a scarf ring would be like a shawl but without the hassle of it slipping, shawls are a bugger to wear I think.
    You can make a fab flower from organza too, simply cut several circles in different sizes, pass the edges through a candle flame, then layer largest to smallest on top, sew some small beads into the centre or even a pretty button. Attach to a hair clip or hair band and you could even put a few smaller ones on a cheap plain clutch so you look like you spent a fortune on matching accessories!

    I love that dress, you can't go wrong for £14!

    If the wedding is in a church, I'd recommend you cover your shoulders for the service but other than that I think this is perfect :)

    Silver or soft pink shades would be nice.
