What comes to mind when you think of gold?

Gold is a colour that inspires both extravagance and abundance. Some brides like the idea of wearing their wedding dress in this luxurious, sparkling gold hue because it represents wealth to them

The epitome of affluence is symbolized in gold, but it can also mean a full enjoyment of life, with the brightness and happiness linked with yellow hues. Brides who favour gold can be seen as extravagant, but also wise and powerful.


If you have ever contemplated opting for a wedding dress in another colour other than white, go with what your heart truly wants! And if that is a gold wedding gown – by all means, go for gold!

Gold wedding gown- a uniquely beautiful creation just for the unique bride

There’s no hard rule that says it has to be white. Maybe, some beliefs would say so, but fashion, trends and brides stepping out from the traditional circle have started to overrule those notions.

White wedding dresses are a beautiful tradition, but if you're looking for something different and more refreshing then there's no reason not to go with gold.

The colour of luxury, gold is often used to create a wedding dress that stands out from all others. The way in which this incredible luxurious shade can be incorporated into your special day will leave you feeling like royalty.

If you want to make an unforgettable statement, you can go for an entire gold gown. If you feel you’d be more comfortable with subtle colour you can integrate gold elements into your dress such as gold trimmings, gold appliques, gold beading or gold embroidery on your gown.

You have a number of different options when it comes to picking out your perfect gold wedding gown. You can choose from many shades of gold and different fabrics that come together in unique ways for individual brides.

By contrast to the traditional white or ivory shades, there are much more varieties for shades of gold - from a super pale white gold to medium gold, dark gold, rose gold and right through to a copper gold hue. Whatever choice of gold you pick, it will look incredibly ravishing!

When deciding on a wedding dress, you will have to think about what type of fabric and style is most flattering for your body shape. For example: ball gowns with their regal demeanor have a wonderful effect of making a bride feel incredibly feminine with a royal essence. Adding gold to the mix will undoubtedly make your wedding gown truly unique to you and your preference.

That said, gold can look absolutely amazing in other dress silhouettes such as A line or a fitted mermaid style gold bridal gown.

Materials such as laces, silks, tulle or a combination of different materials can make that exceptional gold wedding dress stand out from all others in its class-unique to just you!


You have probably visited a couple of local bridal boutiques and have found that the store is filled exclusively with crisp white wedding gowns.

Gold wedding dresses are a rare find amongst the traditional white.

Finding a bridal boutique that stocks your preferred colour – particularly shades other than white - is not always easy. You have probably looked online to see your options and may still haven’t come across a store that can help you.

Getting your dream gold wedding dress doesn’t have to be an impossible feat because it’s not available in store for you to try on or pick from. The way in searching for and buying a coloured wedding dress is very similar to that of the traditional white wedding dress with a few different processes.

Below is our suggested process to get started with buying a gold wedding dress.

1. Dress style

Do you know what kind of dress silhouette you want or one that suits your body? For example, do you envision yourself in a regal style princess wedding gown or a glamorous fitted mermaid style? If you are unsure, it would be best if you can go try on a few different silhouettes to get an idea of what suits your body shape and what you like.
