    I’d probably wear them, unless it is really going to bug you that they don’t match how you planned.  If you decide not to wear them, could you wear them to the rehearsal dinner?

    i would wear them- nobody will notice the different colors. i wore my grandma’s gold bracelet and all of my other jewelry was silver. it really meant a lot to her- and me- that i wore it!

    If you’re dead set on wearing the earrings you already planned on wearing, maybe wear the earrings your grandmother gave you  for the reception and the ones you already bought for the ceremony, or vice versa.

    I was in the same situation, and that’s what I’ll be doing. I was set on wearing silver but she has this amazing pearl necklace, so I’ll be wearing that for the ceremony and the necklace that my fiance gave me for the reception.

    I think the rehearsal dinner would be a perfect opportunity to wear them.  That way you don’t have to worry about remembering to change them before the reception.

    They look like they’re clip ons? Maybe try them as shoe clips, or attach them to your bouquet?

    @Amberdawn: The earrings on the left are your grandmother’s, correct? I think they are a completely different style than the bracelet and the one’s on the right match, that’s the big difference that I see, I actually can’t tell the color  difference in the pictures.  I would be more concerned with the fact that they are clashing styles. I’d wear grandma’s earrings for something wedding related but not the wedding, or you could take off the bracelet and earrings that match when you pull your hair up and then change earrings?

    I think your grandmother’s earrings would be gorgeous with your hair flower during the reception. That way you get to wear both!

    Hard to tell what kind of stones are in your earrings,but I’d pick hers,since they’re diamonds!

    I think you should go with what you feel comfortable with. If it were me, I’d totally wear my grandmother’s jewels – I’m really sentimental like that and wish I had something from my grandparents that I could wear for my wedding.

    I’d go with your earrings for the ceremony, and hers for the reception, with your hair up, those guys will really be sparkling and no one will see the metal color difference.

    It HAS to be what you want, and not what anyone else wants! Personally, I would wear your grandmother’s jewels, but that is me, not you!

    I have also already picked out my wedding day accessories. I even told FI what kind of earrings I wanted as a wedding gift to wear! hah – sorry, I have a vision. – So I feel your dilema.

    Do what you want. 🙂 – If you want to wear your earrings, wear them, just find another place to use grandma’s. Perhaps you can incorporate them onto the ribbon wrap on your flowers?? Those are sure to be photographed more closely than your ear lobes anyway!
