I was very excited to see the post from uncgem about having a gold dress! Like her and many others I also purchased a light gold dress…..and I love it!
Now I am on to making the decision about what my bridesmaids will wear.
At first having a dress that has a shade of its own left me feeling that I needed to go with a neutral like taupe or mocha. But I am love with the idea of having lots of color! Unfortunately most pictures I have come across show the bride in stark white when the maids are sporting a hue…leaving me without a much needed mental image!
So hive what shades will your bridesmaid be wearing alongside your light gold dresses? Does anyone else feel limited by their light gold dress? Add your photos if you have them!
Here’s my maggie dress!

Beautiful dress.. My dress has gold flowers all over it and a champagne sash on it and I am going to have my bridesmaid’s wear maroon or burgandy.

I’m not sure what time of the year you’re getting married, but the gold color I always think of a dusty rose color or a pretty peach. Something antique feeling that will pick up the feel of the dress. Gorgeous dress btw =)

I attended a wedding where the bride wore a gold dress and the bridesmaids wore brown. It looked really pretty! A goldy-green would also look nice.

I like all of the colors the other girls suggested – peachy pink would be pretty or a green. I think you have lots of color possibilities to go along with gold . . . just think of all the colors that fit perfectly with gold! Right away, I thought of jewel tones, a peacock teal, deep plum, ruby red or burgundy, deep pink. Just take a look at pictures of indian weddings, which are usually full of gold and red. They bring in so many colors that are rich and beautiful!

Try that for some ideas, I love the violet and magenta with the gold.
Some colors that pop to mine, are a whiskey brown

Beautiful dress! When i think of gold i always think of light pink..it looks so romantic! but gold can also go with so many other colors. you can definitely pair it with a jeweltone color like royal blue or emerald so they pop. Im sure there are so many conbinations you can go with. Your dress is beautiful..i think you will look amazing!

I have a light gold maggie and my bridesmaids are wearing burgundy. I’m even wearing burgundy shoes.
We also considered slate blue, but thought that the darker color (burgundy) was a better contrast. Navy would probably look nice too.

well, even tho your dress isn’t white it’s still a pale color and a relatively neutral one, so honestly ANY color will go with it. don’t feel like you are limited, think outside the box 🙂 i love pairing a cool color with gold, it has a great and very elegant contrast. like any shade of blue would look great! that could be your palette! all shades of blue and gold. very concise but still fun and colorful with the different shades.

I like the idea of magenta =]. Such a fresh color with gold! My friend wore light gold and her Bm dresses were brown. I love the color idea though

i am having the same problem since i wanted hunter green for the dresses but my mom had a fit and said they would “overpower me” so i picked espresso brown with antique gold trim ones:

Im wearing the Milana as well! Only in diamond white and pewter. I agree with the other girls that a pink would look fabulous and romantic!

I am a huge fan of the color of my bm dresses by J crew. The satin chiffon in deep rose. It’s almost a deep coral pink and would look amazing with a gold color. Those are amazing together imho.
Btw, one of the dresses I have in mind is actually a very light gold. If I go w/it, I’m bringing in a bit of the gold color with a brooch and some goldish into the bouquet. You can also do it w/the bm bouquets too to tie it all in together color-wise!

My friend who wore a light gold had her BMs wear a antique brown which almost had a little gold shimmer on them. It looked gorgeous together.
