Ahhhhhh I am having this dilemma!

My engagement ring is white gold, but my dress is ivory with a lot of lace detail - the lace has gold thread with gold beads in the bodice. What do I do? Silver looks too silver next to that gold but gold clashes with the ring.........I thinking of getting crystal with a slight gold backing you can't really see - to try and tie in the gold, and the crystal with the diamond. Or should I wear pearls? But I'm thinking I should take the opportunity to bling it up. Help me girls! (I am spending way too much time thinking about this when I should be studying!)

My E ring is yellow gold (as my wedder will be). But on the day I will be wearing either silver or that tarnished/antique look colour - IYKWIM?? Although now I have picked my dress, which is a pale ivory colour, it will probably be silver.

Marigold, I would go for gold(hehe) so that it ties in with the gold thread in your dress. Like somebody said earlier, your rings are on your hand and the rest of your jewellery will be concentrated around your face.

I pretty much only ever wear yellow gold however on the day I am wearing silver. My e-ring is yellow you with white gold around the diamont and my wedder will be yellow gold with a band of diamonds. I'm personally not wearing gold as I haven't been able to find any jewellery that I think is totally stunning that is gold however in silver the array is HUGE. I think you should do what ever makes you feel beautiful on the day.

Ordinarily, I'm strictly an all-gold girl when it comes to jewellery, however on the day, my wedding ring and engagement ring are gold, but I am wearing droppy cubic zirconia chandellier earrings set in a silver setting. Good time to break with tradition!

im a gold girl in my "normal" life however the ring is white gold, havent thought about bands yet but as im normally a gold person im thinking of getting a two toned band. as for the other jewlery on the day, im prob go with silver as the theme is silver and black, may wear pearl necklace or earings as i LOVE pearls. otherwise i was thinking of wearing crystals/diamotes which always have a silver tone

My wedding ring is gold and so is my engagement ring. I wore another ring on the day that was also gold - it was my great grandmother's engagement ring. But my necklace was silver with crystals and white/pearlish beads, because it matched the beading on my dress. I didn't have any other jewellery... but no - my necklace didn't match my rings at all, but it was still fine. My shoes were silver too.

I'd say your main jewellery should match your dress, rather than your wedding ring.
