Anyway, although I have quite a few dresses that I have only worn once, since I hardly ever go anywhere that warrants wearing a dress, it seems a shame to wear something twice doesn't it!
For me, it's quicker and easier just to search on a department store's website as most high street stores can be found on there anyway, and it means everything is in one place, for this purpose I've chosen House of Fraser. Since I've lost loads of weight recently, I want to choose something quite figure hugging without looking ridiculous. I quite like the ruching effect perfected by Isabella Oliver, however they don't do anything "dressy" enough for a wedding, so I'm looking elsewhere.
First port of call is good old LK Bennett, I like this Ariella dress in Fuschia and I also like the fact that it can be dressed up for a wedding, but dressed down as well for the day. I actually tried it on in store the other week and it was most flattering, the ruching definitely covers all lumps and bumps and you can adjust the neck in different ways to make it quite versatile too. It's in the sale too, £95 was £185! (it was £110 on Saturday!).

I love this little number from JS Collections, again ruched and very flattering looking. It also gets good reviews and is in the sale! Result! The dark pink is very flattering and I think would go with any skin tone, there are also plenty of other colours that go with this, namely black, so you don't need to splash out on new shoes as well. Was £150 now £75 with loads of sizes left.
