Wearing a red and gold wedding dress.

We believe nothing is off-limits when it comes to weddings. It should be about you as a couple and showcase your personality. White dresses are beautiful but if that is not you then forget white and be bold!

The beauty of a red and gold wedding dress is you can go bolder with red and hints of gold or a soft gold closer to nude with some smaller elements of red.

This means that no matter your skin tone or hair color you can find the red and gold dress to suit your style.

Now red and gold can come in many different shades. Gold looks amazing with red ideally closer to a plum red or deep orange-red rather than bright red.

Shopping guide and FAQ

Accessorising a red and gold wedding dress

Depending on the style of dress you go for you can keep it simple or go all out princess style.

When it comes to accessories and jewellery I would definitely say stick with gold. Using silver or other metals may clash harshly with the gold in the dress.

We love a bridal cape and with the right dress, this would make the ultimate accessory for your bold red and gold dress.
