Someone made me second guess my jewelry and shoes combo!

So.. I figured that mixing silver and gold was no longer a faux pas. Like, who cares, right? So my shoes were gold flats, and my belt has silver accents and my necklace is silver. The necklace was given to my by my deceased grandfather so I really wanted to wear it.. and then someone heard I was mixing silver and gold and they proceeded to tell me it would be a terrible faux pas to do that! Now I am second guessing myself. Give it to me brutally honest, girls. Should I find another shoe? This is already my second pair! 😢

    If your dress is long no one will see your shoes. I would wear whatever you want and don’t listen to others.

    It's long but there isn't a train. You can see the shoe when I walk. Ugh.

    I’ve seen lots of people mixing metals these days and I feel like that rule is a little outdated. I personally don’t like mixing silver and gold, but I don’t think people will really see your shoes if your dress is long or care. It’s not like your layering gold and silver necklaces or a necklace and earrings that will he close together and really obvious. Wear what you like.

    Silver and gold are both metal colors, they can be mixed.
    Just wear what you want.
    I think its more interesting that a cookie cutter wedding with everything matching. That's boring in my opinion.
    Just carry a little of the silver and gold accents through out the wedding. It will be beautiful! Don't worry!

    Do what you'd like! Actually, mixing metals is in. Two-tone jewelry is pretty popular.

    I have wine colored shoes, a gold bracelet, gold earrings, and my necklace is gold with pearls, but my hair comb is all silver so I say wear what you have. If you love it then no one else's opinion should matter.

    Sometimes people on here think they know everything. Wear what makes you feel beautiful because it's your day! And especially since it's a piece of jewelry that is quite sentimental. I say, go for it.

    My engagement ring is white gold and my wedding jewelry is a champagne gold. I am using my engagement ring as my wedding band so I’ll be wearing all my mixed metal jewelry together and I think it looks great together!

    My engagement ring is gold and everything else for my wedding day will be silver and I havent even thought about it twice. No one will even notice and I dont think it looks bad together.

    My engagement ring is white and yellow gold. I promise nobody will be looking that closely at what jewelry or shoes you wear.

    Mixing metals is fine and kind of a trend right now, I see it all the time! My engagement ring is rose gold but my rhr is silver, there’s been days when I’ve worn all 3 metals. I don’t think it’s a big deal, go ahead and wear them!

    Girl my entire wedding will be mixed.. I will be in silver/ white gold, my flower girls and décor include gold and my bridal party will be wearing rose gold. Don't worry about it mixing metals is extremely common these days if that's what you want to do I say go for it!

    I don't think shoes matter. I'm going bare foot. I hate shoes. But if I was, I wouldn't let anyone else tell me what I could or couldn't wear on my day. Whether they think it's faux pas or not. Do you?

    So whatever you like is my opinion. I don’t think anyone is going to take the time to compare the color of your shoes to the color of your jewelry. I love mixing the two and think if you do it right it really looks nice together. Two toned jewelry i see often.
