11 Ways to Use Silver in Your Wedding

Incorporate the contemporary hue into your décor plans.

Metallics are all the rage in wedding décor, but gold and rose gold seem to be getting most of the love. Well, we at Inside Weddings think it’s time for silver to have its moment. The color of platinum, this shade exudes a sleek modern elegance and is perfect for pairing with hues on the cool side of the color wheel. When used properly, silver can make for a seamless accent color for any wedding style: from glamorous to rustic! 

Though many brides choose to wear white gold jewelry, or have stunning beading on their bridal gowns, other ways to include silver may be less obvious. That’s why we decided to pore over hundreds of our real weddings to find nearly a dozen of our favorite ways to incorporate silver into the big day. From a twist on the popular gold Chiavari chairs to mercury vases, lanterns, and the groom’s tie, there are plenty of places to put this metallic to use.
