OK so I've a blacktie wedding in November - I know it's ages off but there's a great selection in the shops at the minute with debs season etc, so thought it would be a good time to buy. Here's 3 options I love, what do you think?? I know this is kind of plain, but it would be very easy to wear and I think it's quite classy.

I want to go a bit OTT old Hollywood style as I NEVER go to any balls or anything and am really excited about getting totally dolled up.

I like the first one best is that from Coast?? Elegant and Classy - 2nd preference would be number 3 - not mad on number 2

Number 2 is probably totally OTT is it? Feic I loved that the most! I thought it was real old school glamour. They are all from Coast, I have a load of House of Fraser vouchers to use so hoping to get something from there. It will be a very mixed wedding, very classy but alot of Bohemian type guests so I've no need to worry about someone having the same dress. Thanks for the feedback girlies! :thnk

Number 2 is definitely my favorite. I love Red and this dress is lovely and a great colour for a winter wedding.

No 1 is totally fab, and great that it has the white at the top as well. Go for fab feather piece, be class.

Grand so it's between 1 and 2 then. I think I'd prefer to wear something long, it's more elegant, and I always wear cocktail length dresses. Actually that does look just like Leonas dress, I neveer copped that!
