Plus Size Summer Wedding Guest Outfit

Well I have a wedding to go to on the 30th July and am hoping it will be a glorious summers day. The last time I went to a wedding I was a size 14 and had my pick of any high street store to pick an outfit but obviously this time being a plus size 20 I wont have as much choice and as always I will need to style my outfit to flatter my curves.

Due to the time of year I really want to avoid black and of course white is a no-no unless I want to try and upstage the gorgeous bride.

I having been looking for something floral and feminine, due to the unpredictable English weather I will need a cardigan/jacket or wrap of some sort too and of course ANOTHER new pair of shoes. I am also dying to wear a fascinator as I have never had one or possibly a hat to complete the outfit.

My budget is approximately £100.

Here are a few outfits I have my eye on. I will be setting up a voting poll so that you can help me decide which one is the best PLUS SIZE OUTFIT FOR A WEDDING.

Evans have an entire summery and understated outfit I love including the accessories. Sleeveless Floral Print Prom Dress teamed up with Crinkle Effect Cream Cardigan by Sienna Couture worn with Ivory Slingback Court Shoes and the outfit is completed with summers essential Straw Trilby.
Total Cost of outfit £81.50.

Total Cost of Outfit £98.00.

Yours Clothing have this romantic and elegant Floral Frill Chiffon Maxi Dress for only £35 leaving me more money to spend on accessories. I love these Blue Crossover Platform Shoes from Dorothy Perkins and will still have change out of £100 for a Pink Feather Fascinator from Debenhams.
Total Cost of Outfit £85.00

For a more formal outfit this simple Marks & Spencer Block Shift Dress teamed with a Black Pearl Trim Boater Hat from Debenhams and these stunning Pink Satin Bow Platform Shoes from Dorothy Perkins would make for a smart and classy outfit.
Total Cost of outfit £123.00.
