As some (most) of you know, we’re doing a fall theme and the girls are in burnt orange (with gold/bronze shoes and gold jewelry).
I’ve never been much for gold jewelry but I’m starting to think that it may coordinate best with my wedding day look. This is sort of a bummer for me though. My mom got me the most beautiful earrings for Christmas and I was so looking forward to wearing them for our wedding. Problem is, they’re white gold. Obviously you can’t mix metals so I need to decide what would truly look best, all things considered…
Shoes (current favs) but I would ideally like to find something burnt orange. Mission friggin’ impossible!:
My current earrings:
What do you prefer?

I would go with what you want. I actually think you can mix metals; I don’t mind it at all!

From an article I found – “7 Fashion Rules You Should Break”
6. Never mix metals in your wardrobe.
This rule basically says that you should never wear gold and silver jewelry together, or god forbid, wear something that has both gold and silver on it! How boring.
Nowadays, it’s safe to forget all about it. With all the cute jewelry and metallic accessories out there, it would be a shame to only wear them with some pieces. Metallics are the new neutrals, and you can wear them with whatever you want. Don’t be afraid to layer gold, silver and bronze bangles together, or wear silver flats when you have gold earrings on. It’s totally up to you and not wrong at all!
Of course, some people have a preference for one type of jewelry over the other. For example, gold doesn’t look good on my cool-toned pale skin, so I only wear silver and white gold jewelry. It’s okay to have a preference, but don’t ever think that you can’t wear what you want because it’s not “allowed”.

I say white gold because those earrings are amazing. 🙂 And I agree, you can mix metals if you want, or you can just do white gold. It’s not going to matter if they match your wedding because, well, you’re the bride. You can do what you want. 😉 haha.

@MademoiselleL: Agreed.. What about Kate Middleton and her white gold Engagement Ring and yellow gold band? If she can do it you can do it 🙂

You absolutely CAN mix metals!! There is no reason at all why you can’t wear the earrings you got for Christmas with the shoes you love. You also shouldn’t feel like to match the color of jewelry that your bridesmaids are wearing. The bride is entitled to stand out.
Wear the jewelry that makes you feel the most beautiful and the happiest…

It looks like the thread in the embroidery/beading of your gown is silver, so I say white gold. What color are your wedding rings?

You CAN mix metals! As long as you do it the right way! As long as you find one piece that mixes them together, say a bracelet, you can mix and match for the other pieces!

My e ring itself has two colors of metal on it and it’s not like i can separate that.
I love the mixed metal look and second that metals are the new neutrals.
Go with what you want the most.

I personally would say wear white gold, and silver shoes, and have everyone else do the burnt orange and yellow gold thing. It’ll go well together and better with your dress.
