I’m stuck on whether I should have gold or silver wedding jewelry/accessories. My shoes are ivory but they have a little bit of gold in them (pics attached). The jewelry I’m looking at is crystal jewelry with gold or silver accents. I like the silver because I feel like it makes the jewelry more shiney and it stands out a bit more. However, my wedding colors are gold, ivory and blush. I do not have a belt or sash for my dress. It’s a somewhat traditional, simple lace ivory gown.
I’m worried that if I go with silver, it will clash with my shoes. However, I don’t know if I like how to gold jewelry looks, especially a gold hairpiece. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

What is your coloring? If cool tones look better on you, I’d wear silver; warm tones, gold; olive can pull off either or rose gold. I think you can rock silver even with your colors being warm, especially since they are more neutral colors. Our colors are cool toned and I’ll be wearing rose gold since that works best with my skin tone. I also like the look of mixed metals, so if you think silver and gold look terribly together, you might feel differently 🙂

mishinthecity: thanks! That’s a good point. I have a light tan and I have honey blonde hair. I usually wear gold jewelry, but I’ve never really seen it worn with a wedding dress before.

Sounds like your coloring is similar to mine! I would definitely wear gold 🙂

My dress and shoes had more gold tones, but I ended up wearing silver colored jewelry because my rings are white gold. Personally, I’ve always considered metal colors to be neutral, so I never worried about mixing silver and gold, but it’s really about preference. If the jewelry is mostly crystal, I would probably go with silver – it’ll just blend in with the crystal and look shiny while the gold would stick out more.

I wore yellow and rose gold jewelry for my wedding. I was tan and had an ivory dress. It was very pretty and unusual. Typically brides wear white color jewelry, but i didn’t want to be like most people. You should wear gold too. Here is my bling:

If you have a long dress, no one is really going to see your shoes. I would wear whatever you feel looks the best on you and with your dress. I wore mixed. My e-ring is gold, my earings and necklace were white gold. But I don’t think it clashed at all.
