I am 48-years-old and shamefully weight about 220lbs. I love the look of caftans and have recently found many formal ones online. I have a wedding on June 28th and have had no luck shopping. I have found a beautiful dressy caftan in a catalog and I can get it in time, if I order it soon. It comes from Soft Surroundings. Unfortunately it is IVORY.

About wearing white to a wedding as a guest. I looked at the website and could only find two caftans that are available in white. Both were featured as beachwear, meaning you will need to wear a full length slip under both, because beach caftans are meant to give a hint of the bikini underneath.
Sadly, the Martinique Caftan & Slip only comes in ivory, and you would have to buy the slip separately — but it is quite beautiful for another occasion. In the reviews it describes as a “beach dress.” The other white caftan would definitely need a slip, but it doesn’t come in another color either.
The Contadora caftan is available in two beautiful shades of blue, however, it looks as if it is more for evening than for a noontime wedding. I also like the Celeste caftan in green, coral, or blue. The Humas and the Mosaic caftans, also come in lovely shades of blue, but look a bit too casual for a wedding.
The only person who is wearing white at a wedding is the bride. It is her special day. Out of respect for the bride on her wedding day, you don’t want to be caught wearing white at a wedding.
The best caftan on the site for you to wear to an early afternoon wedding is the Celeste. Luckily it comes in three wonderful colors
