Silver or Gold?

My wedding colors are Blush, Gold and Ivory. Recently realized how much my dress has silver-ish embellishments in the top part. I was planning to wear gold accessories and shoes. Do you think it will still match? or should I switch to silver? I read somewhere in a fashion blog that it is ok to mix metals, but this is so new to me that I can't decide.

    Mine also has some silver heading to it and will be wearing gold jewelry. I think you'll look fine with gold!

    I have a very similar dress and my headband has lots of gold in it. Still looks great. We are color scheme twins BTW!

    Mixed metals are big and in! Plus, most of the embellishments aren't truly "silver", but more of a sparkle. And sparkle goes with everything!

    My dress was technically silver and I went with gold accessories. I think it looked fine!

    Gold was one of our colors but I still wore silver tone jewelry. Not everything has to fit your color scheme exactly.

    Before reading this my gut reaction was "gold, the answer is always gold!". But after I read it I realized I had this problem too! I love gold, gold everything, I go crazy with the gold spray paint. But the embellishment on my dress is sparkle/silverish so I went with sparkle/silver accessories...But I think gold should work fine if it's your preference.

    ETA Main wedding color is gold

    My girls are in gold and my dress is technically "ivory and silver". On a side by side pic it looks fab. I think you can rock either.

    The Swarovski crystals on my dress were definitely outlined in silver and I wore gold shoes. It works.

    One of our wedding colors was yellow but my dress had silver accents so I wore silver jewelry with blue shoes. My BMs wore gold jewelry. I think we all looked fine together though.

    My colors are very similar to yours, and I originally set out to wear rose gold. But well, my e-ring is white gold, and rose gold-colored stuff can either be hard to find or pricey. So I started looking at gold stuff. But when it comes to hair combs and certain accessories, they come predominantly in silver - or so it seems. Argghhh! So, I'm mixing it up. A little champagne or gold here, a little silver there. What the hell! Smiley tongue

    I love mixing metals but if you want to play it safe silver is probably your best bet.

    ETA: Your dress is beautiful!

    I love mixing metals. It depends though on what your personal style is. I really love how the different tones look together.

    Thank you all for the input... I am leaning for a little of both. I love my gold shoes (they really wont be seen much under my dress) and my hair piece leans towards silver.
