Gold bridesmaid dresses are an increasingly popular choice for brides in 2022, so here’s our pick of the best.
Your wedding day may be all about you and your significant other, but it’s also a celebration of another important relationship in a bride’s life: the love between her and her bridesmaids. They’ve been with you through thick (girls weekend away in Ibiza) and thin (lockdown???) – and if you’ve chosen them to be with you on your big day they’re clearly very special. What better way to make sure they stand out than dressing them in gold bridesmaid dresses?
Forget what you’ve heard about purposely picking ugly bridesmaid dresses to make sure no one steals the show. As the bride, all eyes will be on you (and rightly so) regardless of what anyone else is wearing (or whether your dress is high street or designer). You want to make your bridesmaids look special – so, more and more brides are throwing out the rule book and making sure their entourage shines bright in unique looks like floral bridesmaid dresses. Other brides are choosing alternative colours like black bridesmaid dresses.
While pastel bridesmaid dresses in shades of sage green and soft grey are always popular, your wedding day is one of the best days of your life. As such, gold bridal party dresses are an increasingly trending choice. From shades of champagne to rose gold hues, the colour is universally flattering on all skin tones so you won’t have to worry about any risky fake tan disasters the morning of the wedding. And in a range of designs, from slinky satin dresses to sparkly sequin numbers as well as shorter length styles, you can dial up the drama as much or as little as you’d like.
There’s also plenty of options when it comes to budget. Look to the high street for accessibly-priced options under £100. ASOS have nailed their bridal party collection (we love this satin cami maxi dress in caramel), while this floor sweeping plus size sequin wrap dress from Boohoo is gorgeous for curvy bridesmaids.
Whether your wedding is set to be an ultra-glamorous affair or you’re looking to add just a touch of shimmer to your special day, gold bridesmaid dresses are guaranteed to make a statement. No matter what time of the year you’ll be tying the knot, gold is always in – festive for winter, beautiful for summer, and appropriately seasonal for spring and autumn in between. And if your best girls can rewear their gold bridesmaid dresses to the work Christmas party next year, we doubt they’ll be complaining.
