You may not realize this, but some metals look better with certain dress colors. As a general rule, ivory is best paired with gold since it highlights the creamy tint of the fabric. For a pure white dress, choose accents in silver or platinum or with pearl detailing—gold may clash with brighter white hues. You can have your pick with a diamond-white gown—this barely off-white color looks amazing with yellow gold, rose gold, silver or pearls. If the dress you chose is already embellished with beadwork, let that dictate the colors of your accessories. For example, if your gown has gold beading, pick a necklace, bracelet or earrings with a gold base. 

The most obvious bridal accessories you’ll wear on your wedding day are your engagement ring and wedding band. But in terms of additional jewelry, it’s up to you to decide what looks best with your dress. For example, a necklace can look great with a strapless neckline, but might not work well with a detailed illusion neckline. Our best advice is to avoid going overboard with the jewelry: one or two carefully chosen pieces is likely all you’ll need to shine.


How to wear a gold dress is highly dependent on the tone of the gold in the dress. For instance, certain gold fabrics have a more yellow or orange tinge to them. Others can be a little or a lot cooler, almost beige-like, and often bordering on a silvery hue. Some gold’s are also a darker, antique-like gold’s, while others are much brighter. And let’s not even talk about rose gold!! Gold tones are complicated, ladies! Black shoes literally go with every color dress or outfit under the sun & moon!What I really like about pairing black heels or booties with a gold dress of any shade is the stark contrast between the bright metallic vs. the deep dark shoe. One of those rare times where black shoes really do make a statement! if the gold you’re wearing is at all sparkly or glittery, I’d opt for a pair of matte black suede shoes. This way, shiny shoes won’t be competing with the dress’ dazzle. Clutch choice here is easy: black or gold!

Got a V-neckline going on? Whether you opt for a pendant or choker, this style begs for a little décolletage decoration. A thin chain with a simple pendant, like a locket, is an elegant way to accessorize, while pearls (single- or double-stranded) are always a classic choice. If you're going for a more decadent look, a crystal choker or statement necklace with matching earrings could be the perfect combo.
