Just wondering if you think this dress is appropriate to wear to an evening wedding? It’s ‘antique gold’, but comes across more as champagne. Personally, I didn’t notice what ANYONE was wearing at my wedding, but when I told my sister I was planning on wearing this she said it’s a big no-no….I wouldn’t have cared if someone wore this color to my wedding but just needed some more opinions. Thanks!!

That doesn’t look remotely like a wedding dress, so it would not bother me.

LizzyR: When in doubt, choose something else. Gold is a big colour for brides right now.
It wouldn’t have pissed me off if you wore this to my wedding (because I’m not high maintenance like that) but this dress is actually extremely similar to my reception dress (a short gold cocktail dress) so we would have been twinsees. As the bride that wouldn’t have pissed me off, but if you were the guest in that situation, wouldn’t you feel a little awkward?
That dress is gorgeous though. I totally love it.
ETA: I’m in the minority here, maybe I’m off base.

I think it is completely appropriate and beautiful – I’d be a happy bride if all my guests had dressed that nicely!

cbgg: Point taken- thanks for the perspective….I didn’t even think about a reception dress. I will see if I can casually find out if there is a reception dress, in which case I’ll probably steer away for sure.
I think before I decide I will see what kind of pashima or wrap I can find to dress it down and make it more ‘guest’ like.

LizzyR: Do you know what color wedding and/or reception dress the bride will be wearing?

It’s beautiful and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. If the bride happens to be changing in to a short, gold cocktail dress how the hell were you supposed to know? A bride can wear any colour she wants, guests can’t be expected to avoid everything but a burlap sack just in case the bride isn’t wearing white.
I personally don’t even think people should get their panties in a twist over guests wearing white. Who cares? Also brides who have posted upset that guests wore pastels and it was “too close to white”. It wasn’t white, get over yourself.

LizzyR: I love it! As long as youre not wearing a big poofy white ballgown…I honestly think it’s fine! I went to a wedding this weekend and one woman wore a similiar colored dress & one wore a pant suit (with a skirt) that was totally white. I thought that was a bit weird…but no one thought she was the bride!

It doesn’t look like a wedding dress but it looks almost exactly the same as my Sue Wong bridesmaid dresses

Astra: I beleive she is wearing a dark ivory/ecru with a lighter-colored lace overlay

Like cbgg said, you never know how that person will take it. And since champagne and gold and short reception dresses are both really big trends for bridal right now, better safe than sorry.
