If I were you, I would meet with some bridal consultants to ask to see each designer’s color swatch book.  Then I would look for the specific color and type of fabric that you like.  After you find the color and fabric you like, then ask to see which dresses are available in that fabric and color and also ask if it’s possible to order another style of dress from that same designer in the fabric and color you like. I’m sure there will be an additional cost, but you may be able to get what you’re seeking.

Might be way out of your price range, but have you looked through the collection of Tony Bowls evening dresses? I am certain there are dresses matching your description in Tony Bowls’ collection. Also check out the other Mon Cheri collections, including the mother of the brides collections. They aren’t stuffy MOB designs. Here are a couple examples that are similar to what you described from Mon Cheri:

 

Good luck.  If I come across anything by a cheaper designer, I’ll post it.

Actually, if you can offer more info about what shades of gold would be acceptable (i.e. dark gold, bronze, champagne, taupe) that would help. I have been scouring the web for bridemaid dresses I like so I can keep an eye out for gold mermaid gowns while I am at it. Are you comfortable sharing a price cap?

 

Also, if your girls are willing to rent their gowns, you can rent from renttherunway.com. I imagine you would find something gold and shiny from there.

Saw a bunch of gold dresses that might work for you at dessy.com, including these which come in Palomino (shown here) or a Venetian gold:

Both are satin.

Also saw a few gold dresses at Camille La Vie / Group USA. Terani Couture has several gold mermaid gowns, but they are probably out of your price range. I would go to dessy and filter on Venetian Gold if you haven’t done that yet.
