    I think it’s lovely and definitely appropriate! Some sort of shawl or wrap would be a good option to keep warm outside.

    Faux fur wrap or jacket?  I like it!  I’d wear tights and cute heeled ankle boots with it.

    And I totally get what you mean about not having dresses (or any other item of clothing) after losing weight!  I dropped from an 18 to a 10-12 and I had to replace my ENTIRE wardrobe from the ground up… so expensive and stressful 🙁 (fun to shop but stressful at the amount of money it costs)

    Very pretty and I would say buy it.  However, since its winter I would go for a complete floor length dress.  But I love the color…its a deep red (stay away from bright red).  You can add a long sleeve silver/grayish color bolero.  Then you can take it off once inside the castle if you want to, or keep it on.

    A nice cashmere or angora cardigan would be fine!

    @dannielle89:  You could do a bolero or a pashmina, along with some tights or nylons. If it were winter here I would say that you would be fine and just have a dress coat for the ceremony if it’s in a church, but I know that heaters and insulation are uncommon in Australia after living there!
