Hi all
So after 13 years together, me and the OH are tying the knot next year. We're not keen on 'weddings' and all the trappings thereof, we just want to sign on the line and make it official. We're having the smallest ceremony possible - just us and 4 witnesses - followed by a nice meal in our favourite restaurant for about 15 people. Lashings of bubbly and a few cocktails and I'll be happy :D

Problem is - what the hell do I wear??!! I'm 43, plus size, been married before and the thought of a "wedding dress" brings me out in a cold sweat! Plus, 10 minutes in the registry office and then a stroll across town for lunch in a public restaurant is hardly the setting for a big white frock is it?!

PLEASE help - how do I look pretty and bride-y without looking ridiculous?? I really have no idea about this stuff!
