Glam brides, you're about to fall deeply in love with some seriously chic wedding dresses. Designers are increasingly making it so that you can merge traditional with modern, in the form of metallic wedding dresses with timeless shapes and shiny details. Copper, gold, rose gold, silver — we're crazy mad for you all. Not only do they look gorgeous and serve up a dose of glitz, but they make for some epic wedding photos.

If your mind is automatically running to disco fever and the days of Studio 54, think again. These metallic accents are incorporated cunningly enough to look striking, yet understated. The look is more ornate and divine than tacky and flashy. Even a full-on metallic dress resembles more than your average disco ball.

Whether you want to sparkle in all-over sequins, show off a subtle sheen, or flirt with a glimmering pattern, these designers have got you covered.
