I’m having a black and gold(Go Hawkeyes!) wedding too! We should chat! 


I love gold sequins for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and have seen it done and it never outshines the bride IMO.

My two favorite gold sequin dresses no longer are carried in stores, but I’m a big believer in eBay! what size is your sister? 


Also, love me some Rent the Runway!

Nothing is going to outdo the bride, so you can relax on that count.

I’d just put them in black dresses and have gold accessories, like gold shoes, gold jewelry, and gold organza wraps. Everybody looks great in a black dress, and if they’re shorter dresses, they can be reworn many times.

I also vote for a black dress with gold shoes, maybe a gold sash and gold jewelry. Then the dress can easily be reworn.

You could also look for a dress that is black and gold! Since it’s just her, it does not even have to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, you only have to find one.

Kslim13:  does it have to be gold or can it be gold glitter/sequins? that might be easier to find

Kslim13:  My bridesmaids are ordering from jjshouse.com & one already ordered. The quality is fantastic & they offer where you pay a little extra & can put in your measurements so it’s custom made to each girl. We are doing champagne so I’m not sure if they offer gold but it might want to check it out cause they do have several colors available

I don’t know if this is the type of gold dress your looking for but i found this dress off of a website called Vow to be Chic, this website was a life saver for me since I wanted to get bridesmaid dresses that didn’t make too big of a dent in my budget and this website has beautiful rental bridesmaid dresses for good prices.

I got my bridesmaid dresses from shopruche.com and got this “Sparkle of Light” dress for $62 plus received an additional 25% off since I signed up as a new member (promotion).

This picture below is the actual dress on me.  It’s a size small.  I am 5’4″ and my measurements are 32-26-25 if it helps for sizing.  It’s a really light and airy dress – a little thin, but you can easily buy a slip for underneath.  I’m pleased with the price I paid.

It’s actually more gold than it is silver (what I originally thought) but I love it.  I plan to buy a sparkly/gold strappy bridal shoes to coordinate with the bridesmaids.  Here’s a close-up of the fabric of the dress:

Hope this kind of helps!  Good luck Bee!

Kslim13:  It’s gold.  LOL I thought the same, then when I opened the package, I forgot I ordered gold and was like, “OMG it’s GOLD?”  Happy hunting!
