I need help! I purchased gold Kate Spade shoes (charm), and have gold beads and thin gold thread on the material that will embellish the lining of my wedding veil, which will be made by my future mother in law. The shoes are completely hidden by the dress when standing still and revealed when I walk by the split in front. My dress, a Romona Keveza, was purchased at Kleinfeld and they did not have the supposedly “champagne” colored belt in the store at the time when I purchased it. I didn’t see it until my first dress fitting. Turns out the belt is an elaborate mix of silver beading. One solution I thought of was to put a large crystal brooch on one side of the belt that has silver and gold metal in it, maybe that’s all I need to tie these colors together. I love the belt on it’s own so I don’t want to change it but I’m not sure about it mixed with all the accessories and now I’m worried that everything will not go together and I will be a tacky mix of silver and gold sparkle on my wedding. The gold is one of our wedding colors, which is why I went forward with gold beaded accessories. Some of my friends say it’s a fun mix and brides can do what ever they want, others say no. If I hear from you that it is fun mix and still keeps the elements of elegance and sparkle that I was going for, then I will just keep it. Another part of me wants to scratch everything and start over with the shoes, veil, and gold jewelry. What do you think??

You can definitely mix the colors gold and silver without it looking tacky. I think it will look gorgeous. Don’t worry!

I think the amount of metallic you are talking about is going to be so subtle that its really not going to be blatent to anyone else. I think you will be fine. Your veil sounds lovely- it will make it very elegant to have the gold to it- and if you arent planning on wearing the veil all night- you wont have to worry about that after the ceremony. The shoes- like you said, will only be seen when you walk. I really think you’ll be fine- but I wonder if there is a way you can get the same belt but with gold accents if it will make you feel better. If not, dont worry about it. No one else will notice unless you tell them. I think you’ll be beautiful either way.

In general I think (and have read in magazines like InStyle, Bazaar) that mixing metals is perfectly fine as long as the look of the different pieces you are wearing work together. So a delicate gold bracelt and a delicate silver pendant work fine, but if you’re doing a chunky cuff with a dainty chain necklace, you’d want to use the same metal to keep things cohesive. So as long as the style of your shoes, jewelry, and the belt all work together I think it is fine if you mix metals.

I don’t think it will look bad at all!
