I really fell in love with a gold Allure gown- We are having an outdoor cermony/reception with brown,gold being our colors. Very natural using river rocks, alot of bark, some burlap and mason jars. However I am struggling with my pop color. I want our girls and guys in browns so I was thinking our flowers should be our pop of color. However what should that be? I like Coffee roses which are a brownish orange, I love sunflowers but yellow against gold not loving that. Anyone else struggle with this, any ideas!

I wore a gold dress and carried blush and pink peonies. My girls carried pink and blush calla lillies. The girls wore marine blue, so that was already lots of color. I wanted to bring the Lake and water into the forest.

Mine is technically champagne/ivory/light gold. Phew that’s a mouthful. Here’s a pic. Be a slightly off-beat bride and take the plunge! My flowers will be dhalias and garden roses in the following colors as well :o)

I’m wearing a similar colored dress and our guys and girls will be in dark brown. Ours is a fall wedding with lots of rusts and deep reds. Our ceremony is also outdoors with an old world Mexico feeling.
I think any jewel toned shade would be pretty against the outdoor backdrop and your colors – deep red or maroon, green, or even an orange. If you have trouble finding colors that you want in flowers, maybe leave the flowers in a more neutral color (ivory?) and add the “pop” with ribbon and other accents.

OMG I am sooooo excited to find this thread! My dress is white/gold/silver (Private Label by G, Limited Edition), but it looks gold. My maid of honor is wearing a dark fuschia and my 4 bridesmaids are wearing navy. My dream has always been to have less flowers and more branches, candles, mirrors, etc, so the actual floral scheme will probably be pretty simple. I LOVE bright colors and am really excited.

We had brown bridesmaid dresses and brown tuxes. Our flowers were peach. I had peach roses and garden roses in the girls’ bouquets and the guys’ bouts. It turned out great!
Otherwise, I’d go with dusty roses and mauves.

my dress is going to be a silvery gray. this is the color that I want but this isn’t going to be my dress.
I love the brownish orange rose. I think that would look awesome with your dress!!

That dress is SO beautiful! I love it. This post has got me thinking about venturing out of the white dresses when I go dress shopping.

Mine is gold and my BM’s will be wearing Navy blue. I was so worried that pink flowers wouldn’t work, so thank you DG!!!
ETA: I highly recommend trying out a “non-traditional” color. Very few people look fab in white.

Here’s my dress! It doesn’t look very gold in the picture… but it has gold and taupe accents… I love it!
haha but personally I like it better on myself than on the model 😉
