Have you tried CiciBridal on etsy? Its where I’m getting my dress- she does custom work AND She’s running a 30% off sale right now! Alternatively, you can pick from one of her pre-made designs (instead of going custom) such as these:
For most of her dresses she lets you pick the back (zipper or corset), the color (white, ivory, gold, etc.) and you can change the neckline, etc. Convo her and I bet she’ll be able to come up with something just for you! 🙂

Most of the bees suggesting Maggie Sottero or Sottero and Midgely are right on target. I was looking for white and gold dresses myself and was shown many Maggie Sotteros. You might also want to look at these:
Finding a dress can be the most difficult part of a wedding but nothings beats the feeling when you find your one… Don’t be dissuaded yet, keep looking. All the best 🙂

Found another one – Sophia Tolli ‘Gina‘ (Y2730). And what’s a dress post without pictures…

I bought a Sottero & Midgley dress, ‘Sharon’, in champagne over light gold…it looked kind of pinkish to me. It doesn’t have chiffon (it’s lace) but it does have the other things you’re looking for–beadwork, sweetheart neckline, corset back, a-line, etc.
I agree with everyone else–go to a store that carries Maggie Sottero or Sottero & Midgley–they will have a lot of options I think that you will like.
Also @marsda2003: I really like your dress! I love the lace!

I’m still trying to decide what to do. I love Maggie’s, but sadly they don’t seem to have any dresses that are both chiffon and light gold.
I’m seriously considering etsy, but I’m also considering the only dress that made me say “ou, pretty”. I wasn’t able to try it on though since it was a super small size 8.
The dresses everyone posted are beautiful, but most are a bit too ornate for my beach wedding. I do like the Sophia Tolli dresses and I haven’t checked out casablanca or demetrios so I can look into that.
Maybe I’m just not at “this is the one” kind of gal.

Don’t worry, for the most part “the one” is a myth made up by dress companies to make you hand over cash without thinking! Do keep looking until you find something you love, but don’t worry if it’s not the love of your life – it’s only a dress.

Yeah I never really had “The One” feelings with my dress–I liked it a lot and it’s pretty but mostly I was just ready to be done with dress shopping! I think you should just go to a few stores and get a feel for what looks good on you. You’ll find something great, don’t worry.Or just order the pretty one that you weren’t able to try on–it will probably look great on you.
Also, I’m sorry to post another dress, and also this isn’t even light gold, but J. Crew has a chiffon dress that I think would be gorgeous for a beach wedding. Actually I am just regretting that I didn’t get it myself, so I want someone to get it!
