Winter wedding colors

Hi ladies,
I am getting married next January and I am having trouble coming up with a color scheme for a winter wedding. I was thinking gold for my bridesmaid dresses but my FH was thinking silver for his groomsmen. Can we combine the two. What are your thoughts?

    Personally, I don't love the whole two-tone thing.  I don't like it in jewelry either.  However, this IS one of the few places in your wedding where you can do what you please, because it's not offending anyone.  I'd rather you take gold or silver and pair it with a color.  We did sky blue and gold.

    You can definitely use silver and gold together (especially with an accent color). It just takes a little imagination and thinking outside the typically colors. Check out this website for inspiration http://theperfectpalette.blogspot.com/.

    Here are a few pictures I pulled from the site:

    I think you would be able to do it, however you would have to make sure you don' thave a million tones of the same color. Perhaps you'd like to mix the gold and/or silver with a wine color. I think that would be really pretty.

    I LOVE silver & gold together as the accent colors with a third bold color like a deep purple or deep red!  Keep looking at blogs and magazines for inspiration!  : ) Happy planning!
