Spray paint makes things match quite well.

You could sell them to me! 

Im planning on having gold in my wedding colours too.

However I don’t think silverware would clash THAT much…

@EffieTrinket:  I’m looking to buy gold chargers after someone has used them too! I think that gold chargers are really popular, and easily sellable afterwards!

@EffieTrinket:  You really shouldn’t be painting plates, even if they’re chargers. I guess you could look in charity shops and stuff for gold flatware and just have mismatched ones? I don’t know…

I know it bothers you, but it’s highly unlikely that your guests will notice. Most silverware is silver……..so honestly, I would go with the silverware and the gold charger plates.

Just some examples

@EffieTrinket:  It is perfectly normal and common place to have silverware (or stainless ) cutlery used with any color of chargers and china. It doesn`t matter that silver is not one of your wedding colors. People expect to see silverware, no matter what the color scheme.

I would much rather have real stainless than plastic gold cutlery.

I also don’t think it will be too much of a mismatch…or can you find napkins with gold to wrap the silverware in?

@julies1949:  I totally agree.  If I ever attended a wedding that had gold as a colour, it wouldn’t even occur to me that the colour scheme would translate to the silverware.

I agree with PPs – stick with the silverware and gold plates. I don’t think it will look odd at all.

@EffieTrinket:  if you decide you don’t want them, sell them to me! Seriously, shoot me a message with your price!

You are over thinking it. No one expects silverware to be a color other than silver.
