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.

In undertones of blush, beige, and gold – champagne wedding dresses are full of dimensional color. For brides looking to make a statement, gowns in gold-tinged champagne feel especially elegant and unexpected. For the romantic bride, ivory ball gowns with a subtle beige underlay are utterly timeless. And for the minimalist bride – champagne is a classic neutral tone that always pairs beautifully with clean lines and sleek silhouettes.

Whether your personal style leans towards traditional or modern or somewhere in between – read on for the best champagne wedding dresses for every body type and budget.

What to Look For in a Champagne Wedding Dress

If bridal white and bold colors aren’t your style, a champagne wedding dress is the perfect happy medium. Subtle and sophisticated, champagne hues are just as versatile as white or ivory and are flattering on every skin tone. 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. What’s more, if you’re opting for a lace wedding dress, consider one with a champagne underlay–it will make white lace pop and give your gown added glamour and dimension. Even better? Since champagne is a neutral hue it goes with everything from gold jewelry to silver accessories
