One posh idea to consider is adding gold accents to these traditional colors. Read on to learn how to take your black and ivory bridesmaid dresses to the next level by adding a glimmer of gold!
Why not add a sash? Nothing looks more appropriate for autumn than incorporating a gold or black sash to fall bridesmaid dresses.

Also, a thin, gold sash will also catch the venue’s evening lights and will photograph beautifully, especially when added to ivory satin bridesmaid dresses.
Gold sashes also look great on black or ivory bridesmaid dresses with sleeves, as they break up the solidarity of the dress and help create depth and curves in all the right places!
