    Default Dress to go to a wedding

    I would personally be going something like this if I were you: http://images.smh.com.au/2012/08/01/...=1343816447547

    Basically some slim cigarette pants, the cut off right at the ankle, some heels, a nice top, nice hairdo, clutch, maybe some pretty earrings and a necklace depending on what you're wearing.
    Gorgeous! Exactly what I was thinking. I wore the same black pants, heels and black dress top to a wedding last year. Super comfortable!

    If they are friends they will know u don't do dresses though. I would just tell your friend your thinking of wearing a cocktail top with long pants and heels because your really not comfortable in dresses.
    If they aren't close friends then just wear the pants.. Bit unfair to tell everyone to wear a dress.. What about skirts they aren't aloud?
    Strange to say that imo

    Yup exactly. It's a dress code.

    Like I get dressed every morning , but that's not to say I put a dress on.

    Cos I'm pretty sure most of the men at the wedding wouldn't be too please if a "cocktail dress required" meant they needed to dress in a dress.

    Default Dress to go to a wedding

    If ur wanting to wear a dress, what about a nice maxi dress? They def aren't tight & u can buy a nice little light jacket to put on over it if u wanted too. And with a maxi dress u don't have to wear heels unless u want to good luck!!

    Default Dress to go to a wedding

    Thanks everyone, they wedding we are going to are not super close friends but a lot of close friends and family are going to be there. I was planning on pants and a nice top and when I was told cocktail dress I thought everyone was teasing me cos they know how much I hate them ( I am not the most feminine girl in the world ) but I would be sooooo embarrassed if I turned up in pants and I was the only one.

    Have been looking at dresses on the net - jelliefishie the have some really nice maternity dresses on that asos site but everything is bling or ruffles or lace or colours that you need sunnies to wear!

    Sassy mummy I love love love that outfit it is something I would be comfortable in but once again I am shy and scared of being the odd one out. I called my sister in law who is going to and she said she would lend me something but she is very hippie in her tastes and I have very broad shoulders so I am not sure if strapless or halter will suit me.

    Hmmm thank god I have months to work this out. Thanks to everyone who has replied, I know it is a very trivial issue!!

    Please don't be embarrassed to wear pants. My sister once made a very nice pants suit to wear to a wedding, and she is very much a dress girl. I think you will be more self conscious if you try to force yourself into a dress than if you wear pants but hit the nail on the head with the dress code.

    I knew sassy would come up with a good visual for you

    My sister wore a really nice suit to my wedding
    If a suit is ok for a man, then it is fine for a woman too
