If you want gold you could always buy a dress that’s not marketed as a wedding dress.  You might find something you like that’s in your budget that way!  Unless you just want a hint of gold and not a full on gold dress.

Look into prom dresses and evening gowns.  Companies like mori lee even offer fit and flare BM dresses that I have seen people wear as wedding dresses.  Bari jay, impression, bill levkof.

I recommend looking at Nordstrom’s online.  i found the following, most under 500 bucks:


Not quite gold, but awesome shape and beautiful detail for a fall wedding:


Ralph Lauren, more golden


a Tadashi Shoji lace dress

Art Deco style beading

More gold beading (although I think it is more sequins than beads..)


No beading, and crazy cheap!


darker gold, also crazy cheap:


And this one is totes not the shape you mentioned, but i think it is beautiful and adventurous for a fall wedding:


if you want more dramatic shapes/stronger gold tones, consider looking into pageant/prom dresses:

i love this one:

What about Sue Wong?  Her dresses typically are highly embellished (beading, embroidery, lace, etc) but they are gorgeous.
