What can I wear to my granddaughter’s wedding? I am 40 pounds overweight, 5″1″ tall, and 78 years old. The wedding is a formal evening wedding at an exclusive resort.I cannot wear any heel higher than 2″.

What can I wear to my granddaughter's wedding?Your granddaughter’s wedding sounds like a very festive affair. Since you are 5’1″ tall and overweight wear a dark (black, navy blue, gray, etc.) monochromatic outfit, preferably dressy pants and matching color top, long dress or a dark dress and dark stockings with dark shoes. This will give you the appearance of being taller and thinner. Something very tailored with some trim around your neck would draw attention to your head area away from your body. Other ways to draw attention upward, away from your body, would be to get an up-to-date hair style / hair cut, flattering make up, and wear “statement earrings”. If you need help finding an outfit visit a personal shopper at a department store in your city.
