    Hey everyone

    I thought I would set you a challenge.

    I have many quite big events coming up such as weddings and my parents 25th wedding anniversary. I have lots of nice dresses but many of them are black or I have worn them before and am thinking of getting something new. I have not definately decided to splash the cash or not, but if something takes my fancy then I might well do.

    The first occasion is in april and it is my partners friend wedding. I have not actually ever met the couple!!!

    I am about 5"8 a size 8 with dark brunette hair that goes just past my shoulders and fairly pale skin. I would say my style is quite elegant and classic.

    Basically can you guys find me a nice dress that won't cost the earth (damn graduation gonna bleed me dry lol) and may persuade me to buy a new dress even though my other half thinks im daft lol.

    Rep for the one I like best!:woo:

    I think you should wear a dress you've worn before, but wear a bright coloured ribbon or thin scarf around your waist and some matching accessories. It'll save a lot of money and you don't have to worry about if people have seen that dress before because they'll think they haven't!

    I vote for adapting an old dress. Most people won't know/remember you've worn that dress before anyway so save yourself the money

    i think any of the last 3 would be prefect for a spring wedding, none are black or white and all would suit fair skin and dark hair x
