Gold wedding dresses have been trending hard this year, and we couldn’t be happier. From glittering applique to sequins galore, we’ve seen some absolute bombshells from our featured brides and beyond.

One Day Bridal released the Nala gown back in 2016. Embellished in gold beading with a full circle skirt and a low back, Nala climbed to top spot as One Day’s most popular gown for modern brides, and one of our most pinned images EVER. Since then, we have witnessed gold become the new white, with relaxed and contemporary brides aplenty opting for a splash of glam for their wedding day threads.

We’ve featured plenty of gold wedding dresses here on Nouba, and have collated a number of our favourite gilded and glittering gowns for your wedding (or elopement!) inspiration.

Thanks for posting this story. I have a beige and gold sequin dress aside for my wedding. When I told a friend their response was less than enthusiastic and it made me second guess my choice. After seeing these beautiful brides I’m feeling more confident now 🙂

Stay in the loop!
