Place settings

A little over two months to go and now I’m over thinking every little thing. Our place settings will have gold chargers but we have silver silverware. Is that going to look awful and clash? Please tell me I’m crazy for thinking this stuff..

    Hi Liz, it’s natural to have these thoughts before your wedding. I don’t think it will clash at all, but if it bothers you, our silverware was wrapped in a napkin so that will work nicely ❤️

    My first thought is they would clash but then I looked it up on Pinterest. I love how they incorporate gold from the charger in to the candlestick holders in this pic. You could also have gold table number holders. Place settings 1

    Metallics are neutrals, they won't clash.

    They won’t clash— I brought this up as well. Lol but you can always wrap the utensils in the napkin to hide it for the look.

    Hi Liz!
    You're crazy for thinking this stuff😀🙂.
    Most of the guests won't notice, maybe 5 will ... and they won't care.
    The picture above is the perfect proof that's beautiful and that's NOT going to clash.

    I had gold chargers and silver silverware, and it didn’t clash (and no one noticed). Honestly, I think gold flatware is weird. Lol!

    It won't clash. You can mix metallics.

    Also, flatware is most commonly silverware. Most guests will not even think about the fact that the flatware is silver when the chargers aren't, because they are a functional item that they are used to seeing in silver, if that makes sense. It's like how you don't really notice tires on cars are black, because tires are almost always black, so your brain doesn't acknowledge the color anymore.
