First – I picked up my wedding dress last weekend! I love it! Now I’m onto finding accessories. So my dress has a “spun gold” trim. See pics. In some lighting the champagne color isn’t that obvious – however, it’s still gold. I’m a white gold/ silver/ platinum kind of girl. Is it tacky to wear white gold/silver with this dress? Thoughts and/or suggestions are welcome!

I think it will be just fine, but I’m doing something similar so I’m biased. Actually, with your dress, I think adding more gold through accessories might be overkill. I think going with a silver color will help to balance it. Lovely gown, by the way!

I think your dress is really pretty, love all the detailing.
I’m also definitely a white gold/platinum gal!
But I think with this dress if your accessories are also white gold/silver/platinum it might look a little washed out? In this scenario a little yellow gold/champagne might create a nice color offset. Or what are the other colors in your color scheme?
hehe. We have the exact opposite advice!

i second jo.lee! the spun gold on the dress isn’t too heavy, and i think gold jewelry might look harsh with the dress.
can you go back to the salon and try it on? bring both gold and silver jewelry (it doesn’t have to be your wedding day jewelry, just some stand in to see the colors)

I personally am against mixing metals however i dont think that Gold is right for that dress. If i were you i would choose pearls. i Think that they would look amazing with that dress

I agree with katelynk. Maybe try pearls or lightly colored peach stone or something to downplay whichever metal is in the necklace.

if you want a vintage-y effect go with an oxidized metal using soft coloured stones/pearls so it doesnt look so harsh, but i think the key is not to have too many accessories to begin with this dress, i think it will look too busy since your dress has such lovely detail on its own, i think just a pair of sparkly studs or short dangly earrings would look best

I agree with Bride2BeAshley with the vintage-y effect! A vintage gold is a little more subtle IMO! Im hoping to get a dress with champagne accents also because I have a very vintage personality and LOVE gold jewelry! So I guess I would be a bit biased lol! Good luck and BEAUTIFUL dress, lady!
