While some brides envision themselves in head-to-toe white on their wedding day, others are drawn to gowns in bold and daring colors. But if you’re a bride-to-be who happens to straddle the line between traditional and fashion-forward, a champagne wedding dress can offer the best of both worlds.
When shopping for a dress, keep in mind that gowns won't be strictly labeled as "champagne" in color—terms such as "nude" and "bisque" might be used, depending on the brand or designer.
Whether your personal style leans towards traditional or modern or somewhere in between, we've researched the best options to help you find your dream wedding dress. We scoured the web to find beautiful gowns, keeping materials, cost, style, and overall quality in mind.

What to Look For in a Champagne Wedding Dress
When it comes to shopping for a champagne wedding dress, it’s important to note that there are different variations of the shade. Champagne hues with pink and gold undertones will feel warm and rich while other variations with silver undertones will appear cooler. For brides looking to make a statement, gowns in gold-tinged champagne, like Retrofete Doss Dress, feel especially elegant and unexpected. For the romantic bride, ivory ball gowns with a subtle beige underlay, like Lulus Dazzing Dress, are utterly timeless. And for the minimalist bride, champagne is a classic neutral tone that always pairs beautifully with clean lines and sleek silhouettes.
Depending on the time of year and location of your wedding, you'll want to stick to certain fabrics. For weddings in warm months or locations, look for lightweight fabrics, like a silk or lace like Fame and Partners Charlotte Dress. In colder months, you can go for heavier fabrics and structured silhouettes like Mac Duggal Strapless Ballgown.
What is a champagne wedding dress?
Champagne wedding dresses come in a wide range of subtle tones that range from soft beige to light brown and gold. It's important to note that not all gowns will be strictly labeled as "champagne" in color and terms such as "beige," "bisque," or "tan" might be used instead.
Can I wear a champagne wedding dress for my wedding?
Absolutely! As with any bridal fashion choice, it's entirely up to you to decide what colors and silhouettes best celebrate your personal style. According to Stitch Fix Stylist Alicia Lloyd, champagne is a popular wedding dress shade, especially if you don't want to wear white. "Many brides also find the champagne color to be a softer, more flattering hue than white and beautiful against all skin tones," says Lloyd.
How do you accessorize a champagne wedding dress?
Lloyd says it's important to choose accessories that won't clash with champagne dress. "Champagne dresses are like a blank canvas and provide brides with endless opportunities for beading, gemstones, and other bridal accessories," says Lloyd. "Colors that compliment champagne include earth tones such as dark green, brown and yellow — think bold, saturated colors for the fall or winter months or even pastel or lighter shades in the warmer months."
