Chapter 7: Choosing Silver for a Wedding Color

Much like black, silver is a color that naturally seems to carry with it an extra level of elegance and class. It brings out a feeling of sophistication wherever it is seen and has a level of versatility that allows it to be paired well with almost any other color, from the very brightest colors to the most neutral.

Silver as a Winter Color

Because silver is one of the metallic shades that work so well in the winter, you may see this color often used during the snowy season. During the winter, you might pair it with lavender, blush pink, or ice blue. If you’re looking for more of a neutral palette, you might pair it with black.

However, because it mixes and matches so well with other colors, it can be used during any season. Try mixing it with bright colors during the summer, light colors in the winter, and warm, dark colors in the fall.

Add a Pop of Color

Like any neutral, silver is a color that mixes well with others, but it usually isn’t quite enough all on its own. To truly bring out the beauty of silver, you’ll want to pair it with at least one other color, or shades of single color. A wedding based entirely around the color silver might be elegant, but it also runs the risk of looking chrome-plated and futuristic.

The good news is that silver is so flexible a shade that you will be hard-pressed to find a color that it doesn’t blend well with. Do you like pink? Green? Blue? Purple? Red? No matter what you’re thinking in terms of other colors, silver will blend into the mix seamlessly.
