I decided that I wanted an angelic wedding with a Gold/Ivory/Pearl theme with touches of Coral. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with a similar color scheme! Anyone out there?
Also, has anyone had gold bridesmaid dresses? I am thinking of a creamy gold color. What are your thoughts?

I’m not having this color scheme, but I think it sounds lovely. Martha Stewart showcases a similar wedding color scheme w/ pink and gold. I think as long as you have a more subtle gold and less of a glittery gold, it will look elegant w/o being overdone. We’re actually having gold accents in our wedding w/ kiwi green and white/cream. I’d check out Martha Stewart for the gold wedding and I know David’s Bridal has a really cute gold Bridesmaid or Best Man dress: http://www.davidsbridal.com/bridesmaids_detail.jsp?stid=3717&prodgroup=110′ defer=’defer

Your color scheme sounds lovely! Our colors are champagne, gold, apricot, and burgundy/merlot since we’re getting married in wine country.

I’m doing gold as my main color.. but having royal blue Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and ink on the invitations. I wanted to do a light gold for the girls dresses, but I wasn’t sure how they would feel about that since two of them don’t have the best skin tone for it – and being one of those two is my sister, I know I would’ve heard about it.
When is your ‘gold’ wedding? Mine is this August. I actually really lucked out on getting super cheap clearance gold candles, linen napkins, etc. at the after Christmas sales this year.

Mine’s in August too! August 1, actually. I thought about the skin tone thing, but most of my bridesmaids are tan, and the two who aren’t (my sisters too haha)…well they self tan. So they make themselves tan. 🙂
AND funny you mention the Christmas sales thing, I did the exact same thing. I bought these incredible light gold shimmery garland things of leaves from Michaels (not sure what I’m doing with them yet, but they were SO pretty) and other stuff. I kept my eyes out from October through now for Christmas decorations with gold becasue it’s definitely not a popular color in the spring or summer.
Miss Isthmus, when’s your wedding and where?
