Style Dilemma: A wedding-friendly dress for a pregnant guest

I've just received invites to two weddings which take place in the space of a month.

 I will be 18 weeks at the first wedding and 20 weeks at the second wedding, so I would like a dress suitable for both. I don't want to spend a fortune on a dress that I won't get wear out of, so ideally I'm after something dressy enough for a wedding but that I could wear to a party over the summer. Sinead

The trusty wrap dress is a saviour for many occasions but particularly during the earlier stages of pregnancy. Simple, elegant and, very importantly, adjustable, choose one with a tie fastening so that you can adapt the fit as needed to accommodate your growing bump.

A playful print such as the 'Helen' hearts dress by Phase Eight (1 €125) is equal parts practical and chic. With three-quarter-length sleeves, the soft jersey dress has a wrap front with waist knot detail, giving a gorgeous feminine silhouette.

For a beautiful wedding look, team with a white peep-toe heel and a simple metallic clutch. For a summer barbecue, wear with flat sandals, layered necklaces and a straw hat.

Also at Phase Eight is the quirky printed 'Daydream' dress (2 €105), which will instantly brighten up any occasion.

French label J'aime La Vie's collection includes the 'Romina' dress with a soft waterfall neckline and striking bamboo/floral pattern (3 €59.95, Carraig Donn).

For a block of summer colour, try the cerise pink jersey wrap by Luke Lovely (4 €149.95) at the Kilkenny Shop.
