gold and silver? reception decor question....

Okay so gold and silver jewelery look horrible together, often so do gold/bronze and silver sitting next to one another. But do you think in wedding decor it is best avoided or can different accent/decor pieces be in one as well as another. I guess pre-late-90's it would have been a huge no but do you think it would look alright now?

I have silver vases but I found some bronze candle holders, thanks to aching ;), that I also like... hence the question!

I think you can do it...I say that also because I am doing it :) Can you toss in some vintage gold that has hints of silver to tie it together?

Maybe like this?

I think it can definitely work in decorating. I mean, having the metals directly together looks odd when it's jewelry. But metallics look great together. Plus, it seems like you have good taste so you can make it work! :)

I am currently working on a wedding which will have champagne (light gold) and pewter (a dark silver) as the accent colors to peach and white. So far, it's going well...

I am a HUGE fan of going with what you love...it will all work!
