What is your opinion on a gold wedding dress with the bridesmaids wearing white. I’m just not much of a white wearer. And I’m almost 30 with 2 kids and own a house with my fiancé so I don’t feel the need to follow the traditional virginal bride styles. I’m probably not going to wear veil, just a hair piece or mabe a birdcage veil if I do wear one.
I never see brides wear real color. Usually brides that say they wore color are taking about off white, ivory, or a blush or gold tint so pale it’s hardly noticeable and is still mostly white to me.
I was feeling confident in my decision until my fiancé brother told me “that’s really tacky” and now I’m feeling self conscious about my choice.
Thus is the dress I want: (the dark blue picture is the same dress in a different color, it just shows the best close up of the lace)

I think that dress is gorgeous!! Do whatever you want to do. There’s always going to be someone who doesn’t agree or like the same things as you. I think white would be fine. But it may stand out more than you do with it being so much brighter. Have you considered maybe a champagne or very light off white?

I don’t think that is tacky, at all, and I really actually LOVE the idea. I didn’t have bridesmaids, but bridesmaids in white would have been FUN!

Is your brother some fashion maven, known for his impeccable fashion sense who is always dressed to the nines?…. If the answer is “no”, why listen to him about your wedding dress?

I love this vision. Don’t listen to your fiance’s brother, he has no idea what he is talking about. You can tell him that traditionally, the bridesmaids were SUPPOSED to be in white!
Here is some Pinterest inspo to back up the fact that this is an amazing idea.

I love that dress. Honestly, gold doesn’t seem that far from white to me anyways. I’ve never seen bridesmaids wear white, so that’s a little strange to me, but not tacky. It’s your wedding. You do you!

I think it’s totally fine.
My SIL had her bridesmaids wear short white dresses and it looked nice. The only issue I saw was when they did pictures that were not full length, it looked like they were all wearing wedding dresses.
If you’re wearing gold though that shouldn’t be a problem.

I’m all for this and don’t listen to your broher in law, men have no vision at all lets be honest haha.
I think it will look lovely and bridesmaids in white are beautiful.

That dress is lovely and I’m sure all of your bridesmaids being in white alongside that dress will be a vision. (And it should photograph beautifully.)

If Pippa Middleton can wear a white Bridesmaid or Best Man dress than so can your ladies 😀

Tell your finance’s brother to mind his own damn business. Giving unsolicited opinions on someone elses wedding is tacky!

So your Future Brother-In-Law considers himself quite the fashionista, does he? He’ll have to explain what he finds tacky about the idea. Bridesmaids, historically, were dressed like the bride to confuse jealous suitors and evil spirits.
If gold makes you feel beautiful wear gold. When Future Brother-In-Law gets married he may wear whatever color he likes.

My godmother wore a dress very similar in colour for her wedding. She had a similar situation. Her and her now husband had kids together, kids were all grown up, moved ouit. They had their own home and were all settled in their lives, so they finally tied the knot. She looked totally beautiful and just like any other bride. If it is what makes you happy – you do you girl!
