my wedding outfit

I am getting married in 5 weeks time, I am 68, typical lipo build , my upper arms, hips and legs are huge, ugly sausages so trying to buy a nice outfit on a very limited budget has been a nightmare. So what do I wear , frills and flounces make me look like an overdone meringue , chiffon sleeves don't fit and may split, I have looked at "Caroline Ann" ( Ebay designer of plus sizes) her clothes are nice but a bit pricey and tends to have lots of flowing fabric around the hip area. I do not need extra inches there !!!

So I think maybe a pretty lace tunic in a couple of sizes too big ( I will alter the top a bit) and my favourite flower pattered trousers.

Does anyone have any other ideas ? It will be a very quiet , private wedding with very relaxed dress code.

Hi Jaberwocky, firstly congratulations on your impending wedding 👰🏻🤵🏼

I'm not sure what size or style you are comfortable in, but I'm presuming you're a typical Lipo shape...there are all the usual places to try - high street there's - Evans, Yours Clothing, Next, Bon Marche, Debenhams, and online there's all of the above and JD Williams, Fifty Plus etc.
