    Wedding of my very close friend, it's a lunch time wedding (morrocan and english, bride will be wearing traditional moroccan bridal outfit in blue)

    Or do you suggest an alternative (I'm 21, petite but shall be wearing heels, preferably something drape-y and maxi length, if I REALLY like something, I'd be willing to pay up £350 as it'd be an investment and would wear to a lot more events coming up)

    I like dress A, it's quite unusual. And dress D is a beautiful colour! Will you be buying new accessories or are you looking for a dress to go with what you already have? Maybe that could be the deciding factor

    Dress A is too white for a wedding.

    IMO - Maxi dresses at weddings are best worn by the older ladies and bridesmaids - its hot, its summer, why not wear something shorter?

    Dress A definitely. To me it doesn't look good wearing darker colours at a wedding. Men don't really have a choice, as black, in my opinion is one of the few colours that makes a suit smart.

    Bride is wearing blue, it's a tradition in her family.

    Her sisters are the bridesmaids but us 5 best friends will be wearing long dresses, I'm so last minute and everyone else has bought or got their dresses made

    Hm, feel like a shorter dress (knee length) would be a better option especially for summer afternoon weddings. They're more youthful, fun and at the same time, less formal for such an occasion But out of all those, if I had to pick, I'd go with dress B. Not that appropriate to wear white so A is out and C was the next best alternative but the colour is a bit gloomy.

    Around £350, but that's if the dress was AMAZING and I was in love with it lol.

    I'm surprised people have gone for A, I do like it!

    I think it depends on your body shape, face, skin tone and age. For example, Dress E looks like it's for someone a little older, and Dress D looks like it would suit a busty person.

    So, tell us about your body, bby :sexface:

    Personally I like B and C

    lol, I forgot white is the common colour in the UK! I'm bangladeshi and it's common to wear Red!

    Two are wearing pastel colours cream and another mint, one is wearing plum-y purple and one is wearing an emerald green, so pretty different colours.

    :laugh: the dress would defo have to be amazing for 350! I have a suggestion (you might not like it for a wedding), you can do some fantastic eye make up to compliment the dress! http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Wareh...efault,pd.html

    Or use this site to browse through some more maxi dresses http://www.shopstyle.co.uk/browse/dr...s&sort=Popular

    I prefer A compared to others as the others are quite dark eventhough I love dress D's colour.

    Oh that's worrying! I definitely do not want to wear something translucent.

    I like A, it's a lovely colour for a wedding, so nice and tranquil especially if the bride isn't in a light colour herself

    She's been really busy lol, but you're right, i asked her she likes the last one the most as it looks the most extravagant, but she also likes the second one, I think I will go and buy both and then decide with the rest of the girls.

    She didn't think the first one is a good idea as she wanted us all to wear different colours and one of my friends is already wearing cream, but there is an orange version of the dress, I'm not sure if orange is my colour lol

    For Dress E, I think the model is slightly older, so she might be ageing the dress slightly.
