Help, What should I wear to my sister in laws wedding in july. I will be 30 weeks pregnant and I just don't know where to start. I never wear dresses normally so finding it hard. Has anyone seen anything nice recently? Should add I'm size 16/18 and 5ft 3in so just don't know what to get.

You don't have to wear a dress. Would nice trousers and a top be better?

I wore some nice (and really comfy) white linen trousers from Fun Mum website to a christening when I was 32 weeks pregnant, with a dressy top.
If you would feel better in a dress new look and next have some really nice maternity things and you could always eBay it afterwards, I found maternity stuff have a good resell value.

Good thinking, for some reason I had it my head I needed a dress and was stressing!! Will feel alot happier in trousers, so will look for a nice top. Thanks guys

Means you will get more wear out of them too!

Empire line maxi dress? Opens up your options as not limited to maternity wear. I've just bought a couple for a christening from Asos, but would also wear for a wedding.

I'd go for a maxi dress. There are loads out there that are reasonably priced and if you go for an empire line one you can probably get away without maternity.

A maxi dress would look lovely, there is quite a lot of choice too. I've just got a lovely one from New Look for a wedding, which you wouldn't think was from there, looks a lot more expensive than £23 I paid!

I went to a wedding at 39 weeks and wore a dress from Monsoon. I was a size 12, bought a 16 and had the shoulders adjusted. It was fitted at the bust and very floaty from under the bust. I think it looked ok (if I discount my fat face and bloated ankles!!)

Debenhams have a sale on at the mo. I have got a couple of nice dresses from their red herring range, one of which I am planning on wearing to a wedding when I'm 38 weekish. It's currently half price.

I'm 4ft 11in and a size 16. I had a wedding at 28 weeks and another at 32 weeks. I got this dress from asos which I love: www.asos.com/.../pgeproduct.aspx
I get complimented on it lots and now that the weddings are done I'm wearing it generally (am 35 weeks now).
I wore it with heels to start with, but had flip flops in my bag for later.

I wore a maxi dress to a wedding at 38 weeks pregnant and it wasn't a maternity one... Super comfy too! And it hid my swollen in attractive ankles!

A maxi dress. I wore one when I was quite pregnant to a wedding. You can accessorise it up, get some nice sandals. Really comfy too!
