    hi girls,

    i have a wedding to go to tomorrow, and yesterday i found all my dresses were too small!!!! i am emergency shopping after work today but have a limited number of shops as have to go to a retail park that stays open late. i have the choice of:

    - next
    - dorothy perkins
    - M&S
    - new look (know they don't do maternity, but possibly one size up?)
    - george at asda

    anyone seen a nice smart dress (or trouser/top combo) suitable for a wedding in any of these shops lately???? i'm banking on next or dotty p at the moment - fingers crossed!! i want something that will make my 15 week bump look pregnant rather than fat!! (my pre-preg size was 14-16)

    Just had a look on the next site and they have a lovely selection of clothes that could be worn to a wedding and most of them are designed to actually make you look pregnant and not fat.

    Good old cheap and cheerful Asda. I have got a lot of my maternity stuff there and I find it nice and comfy. I'm not spending a fortune on maternity but was well impressed of the style of clothes Asda do for the price.

    I had a wedding to go to last weekend and ended up having to wear a stretchy strapless flowery dress as I was in a crises like you as well, which is really nice but it really was showing my bump to the max and I looked like a footballers wife (when the two from there were preggers. Luckily no one even noticed I was pregnant till I turned to the side!

    Defo try Asda, if not try to get something just one size bigger. I did that with a dress early on in pregnancy for a wedding and that worked too. I think that was from next! You'll probably get something nice in the sale as well.

    Em xx

    It depends on your style I guess, but on the first pregnancy page they have got the dress in brown tones and also the rose print top that would both be acceptable for a wedding, but I'm not sure what you like.

    The rose print top in particular is very summery wedding-ish and also very maternity so would show off your bump nicely
