Your dress. While dressing in head to toe gold would make you look like an Oscar statue, a dress with some gold detail is pure glam.

Shoes. "While a gold wedding dress may make you look more like a statuette, you can still accessories with gold shoes," says Chertoff. "These open-toe gold pumps with ankle strap add the perfect amount of glam to your wedding-day look, and are secure enough that they won’t slip off as your twirl around the dance floor."
