    Try the shops Coast, Oasis and Debenhams (the smarter section).

    They tend to do that kind of style.

    if you do wear black and you are going to a wedding, I recommend you accessorise with a bright colour. Otherwise you look like you are going to a funeral.

    Laura Ashley had one (it's a very similar shape but the skirt is slightly longer and has a tulle skirt, it also has a belt with a tiny diamonte buckle but I think you can take it off). They don't have any left on the website but some of the stores may have one left. If you give them a ring they should be able to do a stock look up for you.

    or I've got a similar dress from H&M so you could try in there. These are the closest I could find (although will your friend mind you wearing black to her wedding, would something like http://www.coast-stores.com/MOD-SHIF...uct/2143399212 be better?)

    You're not supposed to wear black, red or white to a wedding. Younger guests might not be too bothered but older guests could be offended.

    i dont know about english culture, but indian culture, ur not meant to wear a red dress, as this is the colour the bride wears. But its only a small wedding im going to, so my friend doesnt mind about colours, shes not even wearing white herself. Thanks

    Its a sexy, attention grabbing colour and draws attention away from the bride.

    Really? I knew you shouldn't wear black or white but i didnt now about red, so many people have (dark) red bridesmaids these days. I wore a sort of reddish pink to my cousins wedding.
