First up, a great buy from Lovedrobe for £36 (up to size 20 in stock, but New Look has it too, up to size 26) which would look great with gold accessories and a cream jacket. Someone once told me that wearing green to a wedding is bad luck. Unfortunately, I was wearing green to a wedding at the time so it was a bit late to fill me in - but the couple that wed that day are still happily married so don't believe the hype. Just beware of this one if you know the bride (or her outspoken nan) is particularly superstitious. Green looks great but the last thing you want to do is jinx the marriage from day one.
Next up is a bit of a designer treat, from queen of plus size Anna Scholz. Her lace tunic dress isn't exactly cheap at £175, but look how happy the model is. Colour! Lace! Sleeves! This baby is available up to a size 28 and will quickly become your go-to smart frock. If you prefer more shape, just add a belt.It's £59 at Castaluna in sizes 16 - 30, and the shorter hemline makes it a great buy if you're petite and fed up of being drowned in midi dresses this season. Navy is also great colour for weddings if you're usually a fan of black - you can keep traditional brides happy but still stick to a dark palette.
I'm going to try and write about this 1920s inspired gown from Simply Be (£85 in sizes 14 - 32) without mentioning that film but it's rare to find this slinky dress shape in plus sizes, let alone in a bold coral-orange colourway. So embrace that originality - nobody will expect you to wear something like this, which is what makes it so special. Just add a wrap or cardi for daytime. And beware the feathery fascinator - one person's artfully themed outfit is another's inappropriate fancy dress.
Finally, a chic little number that would be perfect for a city wedding. Just add a big hat (I love a big hat). This is another designer number - because if there's any occasion when you should treat yourself, it's a wedding. It's by Elena Miro, available at Navabi for £198.90. Move quickly if you want this one - it's a popular choice and sizes are selling out quickly!
