Gold has always been symbolic, and that’s good news for all brides to be. In fact, it looks like we’re on golden time in the coming season, as rich metallic hues bring a spirit of optimism to wedding-day dressing. There’s everything to love about yellow  – shade of sunlight, prosperity and smiles. While some designers have used precious metal shades through their collection, others have added accents to warm up white. Just add a pair of knockout yellow heels and choice gold jewels to guarantee sunshine on your wedding day.
