Go for Gold!

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 17, 2012

Maybe it was the 2012 Summer Olympics that inspired designers, because gold (and silver too) made their mark on the bridal runway this week. Metallic embellishments debuted a few seasons ago but this time around they have a beautiful boldness to them.

A very regal color, gold gives a simple white dress the va-va-va-voom factor the glam girl is looking for. If you’re shopping in the non-white dress market (or for a fabulous number for your reception) you’ll find all gold gowns that will surely have all head’s turning.

Marchesa’s majestic ball gown with a full tulle skirt is paired with a structured strapless bodice featuring an ornate gold pattern.

This red-carpet worthy shimmering metallic gold Ines Di Santo gown is as sexy as it gets, with a thigh-high slit in the skirt and a one-shoulder neckline.

You can barely see it but this Reem Acra ball gown with elaborate gold embroidery has an illusion neckline with a high crew neck. The gold pattern continues to the edge of the tulle, creating a capped sleeve unlike any we’ve seen on the runway, and the result is simple stunning.
