It may be just my computer but the antique gold does not at all read yellow to me.

I would have a hard time recommending yellow or gray to wear with that dress.

Have you thought about bronze? It’s ok to mix metals these days. You could still wear the earrings you have chosen.

@yellow bride:  Hi there!  Pretty, flowing gown you selected!  I think a champagne or nude color would look really beautiful also.  Here are a few that might work from DSW (although some may start at size 6):

I think a nude sandal would look nice.  I think a brightly colored or different colored shoe would take away from the dress.  With a nude shoe I think your dress would stand out.

@2ndtime:  I agree!  Champagne or nude would look very nice.

I realized that I overlooked the fact that your wedding is outside.Something like this Elie Tahari in antique gold might work.

Elie Tahari - Hilary (Antique Silver/Gold) - Silver Wedge Sandals

It’s close to the color of your dress so won’t interfere with your choice of jewelry.

 Or this Kenzie wedge from DSW

Italian Shoemakers Kenzie Wedge Sandal - Gold

 Otherwise, I would look at a pewter color shoe. I think it would work with your dress and is a variation of the gray of your color scheme.

After looking at the picture, I’d say a nude shoe would probably work best.  But, if the dress is truly a light yellow and NOT the color in the picture, I’d think since your colors are yellow and gray and you are wearing silver jewelry, silver shoes might look really nice.  They’d match your jewelry and the contrast against the dress might make it look more yellow by comparison.

I didn’t read any of the replies… but when I can’t find shoes that match, I just go with a delberate non-matching color.  Red.  Green.  Purple.  Something awesome.

Go for a splash of colour to contrast! Red, blues, even white will go!
