Q My son is getting married in four weeks' time and I am looking for a suitable outfit, I'm a size 18 to 20 and 5ft 6in. I live in Co Mayo and blue always looks good on me. Any suggestions?

A Personal Choice, an Irish occasion wear brand that specialises in fuller figure styles, would be ideal. It is available nationwide with a number of stockists in Co Mayo and starts in a size 18-24, (

This brand is very strong on occasion wear. In particular this winter they have a stunning deep purple/blue-toned dress with flattering ruched detailing in the front.

You could try this dress with M&S's rich winter faux fur coat from their Limited Collection range in deep navy, this would look super glamorous for a winter wedding.

Finish off your look with Irish milliner Aoife Harrison's elegant navy headpiece.

As an alternative you could try Personal Choice's very pretty floral dress with tiered fabric in the front which is also very flattering.
