gown

I'm tall and must wear flats at my wedding - what will go with a gold dress?

asked
Our wedding ceremony is taking place in a movie theatre, and our reception in a big pink ballroom, with our colours being pink and gold... Attached is a photo of my dress. Also - any tips for jewelry? I have a fascinator for my hair and some gold chandelier earrings - should I wear gloves? The wedding is in Toronto, Canada in October - could be chilly or warm?

I think a very simple satin champagne colored shoe would be ideal so that it camouflages into the bottom of the dress well. If you could find an open toed flat in this color, that would be best that way it shoos off your pretty toes and adds a little more elegance than an ordinary closed toed shoe. Gloves would be stunning for the ceremony or perhaps a few pictures but think may take away from your beautiful gown if worn the entire time.

That dress is amazing! Your wedding colors will have your wedding look so romantic and pretty. Ahh! But, back to your question - to wear flats, go with gold, sparkly. It will keep with theme and will a sparkly pop underneath that gorgeous gown. I think you should forgo the gloves and get a tuxedo-style silk jacket in gold or champagne color. Congratulations - you, I'm sure, will make a beautiful bride!

Try a sparkly gold ballet flat similar to the ones attached, (from Nordstrom). If you have the gold chandelier earrings, you might not even need a necklace, (depending on how long the earrings are). Champagne or ivory gloves would be pretty and appropriate for an October wedding.

First of all, that dress is SO elegant. I love it! As for your shoes, you have a couple of different options. One is to find a matching, textured gold shoe/slipper. Another direction is to go for some satin ballet flats in a champagne or warm ivory color and pair it with either satin long gloves or a satin bolero jacket in the same color (they'll keep you warm and can be easily removed if you need to cool off).

For less fancy and more "sassy", a really bright pink on a peep-toe shoe might be cute (not that many people will see your shoes, anyway, so a flash of color can be fun). If you choose a pink shoe to match your colors, I'd stay away from gloves or a coverup in that color because it'll start to look a little too matchy-matchy with your decor.

For a necklace, I'm fond of something simple and classic (like a pearl choker or strand of crystals), but you could also go with something mid-length and delicate in gold or floating crystal that mimics the shape of the embroidered leaves on your bodice.
