Hm ... I think either could work! I think I'd vote for gold, but it's by, like, 1%. Honestly, I think I'd probably let the BM's choose individually, and go for a little variety ... both together would be visually interesting, I think.

I would go for Gold, it would look a little warm, since the colors are close but that is just me.

gold- especially since you are going for fall colors and I think the gold really plays into that nicely.

I'd say any metallic would be fine...but a mixture of gold and bronze would probably be quite striking. With a fall wedding and the color scheme you're going for, I'd stick with warm undertones.

Thank you guys!!

I'm actually having two girls wear that dress that it is in the picture but ALL mocha and then another dress of the same length but different style.

I was thinking Gold also. I think the mix idea is awesome, especially if it were gold and bronze butttt the plan was to have the guys wear an all black tux, black vest, black shirt, and then the tie would match the color shoes the girls wore OR I could have the ties be mocha color. Decisions!

I definitely think gold would look great with that color!

Hmm. I was all prepared to go with gold when I heard "mocha", but looking at the picture the dress has a pinkish hue, at least on my monitor, and I think a bronze shoe would be the most flattering corresponding shade.

I'm a little in love with this tie, though - Geoffrey Beane - but I'm always obsessed with paisley.

Have the actual dresses come in yet? If not, you might want to hold off until you see the exact shade. I only mention this because I had ordered my BM dresses in amethyst, which to me sounded (and looked on the screen) like a very jewel-toned purple. Instead, the actual fabric almost seems periwinkle. Not bad, but not exactly what I had in mind.

They have not come in yet but we have seen the color in person...they're pretty accurate on the website too =]

Ooooh, I like the gold and bronze idea. I have a pair of Cole Haan flats that have a few metallic colors interwoven together. This is the only pic I could find online...

I got bored at work today and played with different colors of shoes with this dress...

I actually liked silver best, even though I initially thought gold or bronze. The mocha is more gray in undertones than gold, so I vote silver.

I'd go with fabric shoes and have them dyed to match the cummerbund on the dress, or have them wear bronze shoes. They'd have to get the shoes all together to make sure they match.

Hi guys, just wanted to update you!

We decided on "champagne" colored shoes. I don't want them to have identical shoes, I'm not into that so they are free to get whatever shoes they'd like. 2 are wearing the dress I linked (but it is not two-toned, it will be ALL mocha) and the other 2 are wearing a dress of the same length but different style.

Groomsmen will have 'champagne' colored ties.
