Glam Gold Bridesmaid Dresses

Add a dose of shimmer to your wedding day with a gilded bridal party

Updated 12/01/14

All that glitters is gold — bridesmaid dresses included. Gold is an inherently festive color, which is why it's perfect for the biggest celebration of your life! From full-on sequin minis to a subtle gold jacquard or polka dots, the amount of shimmer and shine is up to you when it comes to having a gilded bridal party on your wedding day.

Since gold is often associated with the holiday season it best suits a winter wedding, but you can deck out your girls in gold for a glamorous autumnal bash or a whimsy spring soirée, too. (After all, metallic colors are essentially a neutral.)

There are plenty of ways to give your girls the midas touch. Gold works with nearly every style and silhouette, from party-ready sequin shifts, to a gold-dusted chiffon sweetheart sheath and a full-on, flared-skirt, shimmering champagne retro number. For a more subtle metallic look, try a gold pattern or a shiny champagne hue.

Plus, the trend is as accessible as it is style with affordable retailers like Ann Taylor and David's Bridal trying the look, as well as more high-end designers like Jim Hjelm and Tadashi Shoji producing gorgeous gold numbers. And though the look is trendy, it's also timeless — meaning your girls will be able to wear these looks long after your big day.
