If you are creating the logo in Illustrator (and maybe some other software) you can get a pretty good silver look from 4-color process (CMYK) by using a gradient in shades of grey, with a little cyan mixed in.
Don, you may not recognize me from the Web Design sections of this forum. Me using Illustrator would be like a monkey using a typewriter. I am the MOST basic of graphics modifiers and my preferred tool is PaintShopPro version 5. I do have a copy of version 10 for when I need to open EPS files, but even at work where I have PhotoShop available I only know how to use that to modify images for maximum web usage.

And the person doing the invitation layout has less graphics skills than I do, but does have marginally better DTP software than MS Word, albeit I think it's only MS's DTP program. We're an all volunteer 501(c)(3) but we get the job done. (Usually; this invitation won't be quite as nice as I'd like for a 25th anniversary but I'll be one of the few people to notice that.<g>)
