Don't suppose you fancy posting a link to your dress (is there one)?! Just ignore me if you don't want to - sorry for being nosy! I had a light gold dress for my wedding last year and I am fair skinned too, everyone commented on how the colour really suited me. Four weeks to go, how exciting!
I had a maggie sottero felicity in light gold and my picture was terrible too so I know what you mean! I love maggie sottero dresses, I had a feeling that's would you'd be getting when you said it was pale gold! Does it have a corset back? Mine did and I had the best waist ever!
