The link wouldn’t work for me either.

It’s fixed.  Well, to answer your questions, I wouldn’t say that the dress fits with "modern, simple elegance" theme, but there’s no law that says you can’t have a simple, modern style to the wedding and a more ornate dress.  If you really like it and don’t mind that it’s a different style than the rest of the wedding, go ahead.  As far as the gold goes, are you talking just about the trim or about the whole dress?  I think gold all over the dress might be a little overpowering.

If you mean gold trim, it would look awesome!! But of course my dress has gold trim!  The bead work, especially on the bottom, looks a lot like mine. If you decide to go with gold, take a look at these shoes, I LOVE them!!

Just looked at the site again and it says lt. gold/gold.  So I guess the dress itself is light gold.  I don’t think that would be a metallic gold, right?  More like a goldish shade of ivory.  I think it would look nice.  It would be better if there were a picture of that color.

I agree that it’s not what you explained as modern, simple elegance. I do like it though…

I chose an ivory gown with silver, white, gold and "rum" (more like copper) beading. Here is a link in white: http://www.bonny.com/index.php?Itemid=999999935&option=com_staticxt&staticfile=gowns.php?id=317&gline=1&start_page=12&featured=N

It looks much better in the ivory, I think…

As for gold, I have a friend who was in a wedding with the bride in gold. The dress was stunning. The bride was very tan and the wedding was in the fall, so the color was amazing for the season.

Good luck!

I’m wearing a light gold gown, but it reads more of a rich ivory color and absolutely love the look of it.  However I am going for a "luxurious elegance" for my event tone.  Honestly, I think the lace & bead work do shy away from your "simple modern" feel.  Unless your completely in love with the dress, perhaps you should look at more gold or ivory dresses without all the beading, etc.

I’m not sure the dress vibes with your theme, but if you love it and you’re gonna feel beautiful in it I believe that’s way more important.

My dress is a pale antique gold and I love it.  Such a unique color and in your case if you found it in gold it sounds like it fits in your color scheme.

here’s the deal:  if you want your gown to match your "theme"–then this is not the dress for that.  *however*, it doesn’t matter if your dress matches what your overall theme is.  If you love the dress, can’t stop thinking about it, are giddy about the color and the way it looks on you, then that is THE dress!  I’m sure you’ll look stunning in it–I have yet to attend a wedding that the bride looked out of place at!  Best of luck to you–i like your choice!

It doesn’t go with your theme, but I think a gold wedding dress would be gorgeous.
