My brother is getting married for the 3rd time on his 60th birthday, 31st October (divorced, died, I don't think he is planning to execute Karen). The ceremony will be at the Elgar Room, Great Malvern and then an afternoon tea.
Anyway, I don't know what to wear! Needs to be long to hide my skinny legs.

What about a posh jumpsuit with either long leg or 3/4 leg? might be warmer than a dress if cool weather, or long sleeve dress. It's not by any chance halloween attire with it being on 31st Oct?

Thanks, I thought maybe a jump suit, we are away so assume the invitation will be waiting at home, dress code may be specified. Don't really do high heels, have a dress but the weather may not be good enough.

Jump suit? Noooooo. You have to get completely undressed to go to the loo. They look awful from the back too (or the ones that I've seen have not been flattering).
Long / maxi dress, as suggested, with a shrug or a wee linen jacket or a pashmina, and a bold necklace. Sharp new haircut, bold makeup, glamorous nails.
I've done the fascinator wedding, and I'd suggest don't bother - it pinches your head after a while. If you choose to wear a hat, given there are some great ones in the charity shops, make sure you can kiss people on the cheek - I've trailed OH with me so that I can test that. But bare headed is fine these days.

Thanks Fiona, my hair is terrible so I will wear a wig (hairdressers look at it in despair) A pashmina is a good idea, then I could wear my posh dress, bought cheaply years ago,never worn yet.

Your Posh dress, Pashmina use leg and body shaper tights = skinny legs sorted.

I have seen nice tights to shape you legs in M & S
I like the ones in Sainsburys

Thought they were for fat legs? It's a long dress anyway.

If the weather's cold, a discreet long thermal vest under the posh dress might be handy. You could always nip into the Ladies and remove it when you warm up - the vest, I mean!

Personal preference I know, but I would always prefer a jacket to a pashmina or shawl. The latter (for me) are always slipping and become a nightmare. With a jacket, I can stay smart and not worry!

I bought a jumpsuit for my daughter's wedding in Italy some 4 years ago. It was a loose, wide legged style and everyone complimented me on how elegant I looked. Luckily, it was very hot, so I did't need to go to the loo too often. You do need what my hairdresser referred to as a loo buddy! I wore it with low heels as my high heel days are long gone. Mind you, part of the reason for buying it was that I could wear it again. Typically, we have not been invited anywhere since that required dressing up. All I seem to wear these days are jeans, tee shirts and a fleece!

Thanks, I had loads of jumpsuits back in the day, but no posh ones. One was army camouflage pattern, which my boss called my jungle suit.
