I purchased the Mori Lee 5104 in light gold – I had originally decided on ivory but it just seemed too white to me. So I went back to the light gold but am worried about my original color scheme! We’re getting married in August and I want blush bridesmaid dresses (Dessy: cameo…it’s between a blush and nude color)…so my dress and my bridesmaid dresses will be very close in color!! Also, I wanted the guys in dark gray but am now thinking black because of the gold. For flowers, I was planning on doing blush and white garden roses and hydrangeas. What do you all think…is the gold going to throw everything else off?!

@MaleenaD: Oooh, no, I think the light gold will look totally amazing and sort of vintagey pastel with the blush dresses, the flowers, and the gray suits. Keep things the way you have them!
I adore very off-white wedding gowns. Mine is going to be deep ivory with some light taupe accents (lace and fabric flowers). I’m making it, so I get to pick what colors!

Gold and blush as LOVELY together. Everything sounds perfect honestly. I think you’ll find that once you hold your dress to the bridesmaids dresses they will look great together. So romantic!
Only caution would be to not go too white with the flowers. I’d aim for a more cream color as the bright white might be too stark against the softer colors.
Can’t wait to see it all come together!

It’s hard to comment without pictures, but I think your original colour scheme is perfect. My colours are blush, grey, and gold – so perhaps I’m biased, but I think they look beautiful together. I definitely wouldn’t switch out grey tuxes for black, black would look too harsh in my opinion whereas charcoal would be really classic.

@MaleenaD: My color pallette is actually, light gold/champagne, ivory, blush and im still deciding suit color! It will be beautiful! I would just change the white flowers to ivory flowers! It will keep the “starkness” away.

I think it sounds great. Not sure which Mori Lee I tried on, but I definitely tried one that was light gold and it was such a gorgeous colour, I’m sure yours will be too 🙂

I think that sounds gorgeous. Very muted and vintage.
IMHO, black tuxes look best with pure white dresses, but most other shades of white and pastels – ivory, cream, champagne, light gold – look better with shades of grey. I think it’s a softer look.

@MaleenaD: I have tried on two Mori Lee dresses in light gold and they actually look more pale pink than gold. When I showed pictures of the dresses to other people, I often was asked if the dress was blush pink. So I think it should be great!! Post a picture of your dress 🙂

Thank you everyone!!! Your reassurance makes me feel much better. And good points about the cream/ivory flowers vs white. And the gray vs black suits 🙂

I am so happy to have found this post! My girls and I picked out the bridesmaid dresses before I got my dress. I have 5 gals and 2 are in Dessy Cameo, 2 in Bill Levkoff Petal Pink and 1 in Dessy Rose. I am going for a vintage/romantic theme. When I finally bought my dress I fell in love with a Martina Liana ivory lace with a champagne undertone. When I look back at the pictures the champagne is strong and I was super worried this would be too similar to the Dessy Cameo. My family and bridesmaids assure me it will be fine but its hard for me to visualize without seeing it all together. The overwhelming positive response to this thread has really helped!
