LOVE. Bridesmaids could also do an earthtone.

It’s very pretty but too be honest it looks like it could be a dress for a formal guest rather than a wedding gown. Not saying you have to do solid white or ivory (I am a bridal consultand and even I prefer a bit of color)

However you can get the sexy 1920’s vibe with a bit of bridal flare. I am not sure where you are located but I will provide some ideas that I know are available internationally in shops because you really should try on in person if you can.

Essense of Australia D1686 (availabl in a beautiful champage color)

Essense of Australia D1762

Essense of Australia D1639

Martina Liana 701

Martina Liana 613

Martina Liana 555

Stella York 5984

Martina Liana 6023

Mori Lee 5312

Mori Lee 5262 (had a bride use this dress for her ‘Great Gatsby’ theme wedding)

Pronovias ‘Mardil’

Pronovias ‘Brandir’

Also as bridesmaids go stick with rich gem tones (as another bee suggested)

These are eggplant/plum, burgundy, wine, dark teal, emerald green, and navy – gem tones look especially nice when paired with gold and champagne

Not saying to use all of these but pick your favorite personally for a vintage winery wedding i could see: gold, eggplant, and a nice merlot (aubergine) color

I also really love this dress and have considered it for my wedding, but im in aus so thats a barrier for me as well. 

Please also remember that a wedding dress is a dress that you wear to your wedding, not a white dress, and not a dress with a train or anything else like that. Dont feel that you wont look bridal enough – you’re the bride and what you look like defines your bridal look not vice versa! Haha.

Might not be overly “bridal” bu tit’s very lovely and a long cascading veil will make it birdal enough. I always think a bouquet makes a Bride look”bridal” too. I’d tend to tone it with whisper soft pink/peach bridesmaid’s dresses with gold accents.

I took a look since I am in NZ as well, they say shipping is $45 for international, they use USPS so it is really reasonable. You will have to pay customs fees so altogether it would cost you about $725NZ but still, compared to the cost of buying dresses in NZ I think you are getting a pretty decent price! Your other option would be to find it preowned and maybe you could get it for under the customs threshold so you avoid all those extra fees. Or if you know anyone going to US who can bring it back for ou.
