What to Look For When Shopping For a Gold Bridesmaid Dress
When shopping for a golden bridesmaid dress, keep in mind there are different shades of gold to choose from. The time of year your wedding is in can help to determine which shade is best for your bridal party. If you are having a spring or summer wedding, you might want to lean toward a light gold or a brighter yellow-gold color, but if you are having a fall or winter wedding, metallics or a champagne color may be the way to go. We also love the idea of having your bridesmaids in different shades of gold for an ombre effect!
