Bridesmaid Dresses: Are Baby Yellow Bridesmaid Dresses Appropriate for a Winter Wedding?

Q:

I'm getting married in December, and I'm unsure about bridesmaid dress colors. At first I wanted baby yellow, but now I wonder if I should choose a winter wedding color.

A:

It's true that a pastel like yellow might be a little too summery for a winter wedding. We've got a rich alternative, though: How about gold? If you really love yellow, metallic gold dresses would be a sparkling choice for your wedding, and gold is wintry and holiday-appropriate. Muted metallics are totally in for bridesmaids -- they're not bright or garish, and they give bridesmaids a sophisticated, Oscar-night look.
