At some point late last year, someone in the know predicted that yellow and silver (not together) would be hot in 2008. Whoever that was has apparently been proven right, because I’ve seen the number of silver frocks out there skyrocket!
I tend to think of silver as an accent color — for white or maybe black — but it really stands out on its own. There are more and more silver wedding gowns hitting the market, but if you’re set on wearing white, why not dress your ‘maids in silver?

Going clockwise from the top left, there’s a silver jersey beaded strap evening dress from A.B.S., a Chaiken silver sequined shift dress, a silver sateen jeweled halter dress from A.B.S., and a Tart silver stretch evening dress
If, on the other hand, you do want to go the traditional route, I think these silk shantung frocks from Jenny Yoo are absolutely delish:
