You can mix dipole and direct radiating, but it's not the best implementation. The most important surrounds are the side surrounds. If you are going with a 5.1 system, then you can use dipoles on the sides (if they are at least 4-5 feet away from your head). If you are considering 7.1 then they should all be direct radiating.
Also, as you know, I recommend using similarly matched speakers if possible -- especially on the sides. So, if your fronts are Bronze, then use the Bronze surrounds. If you want to go with an all-Bronze system, think about selling the Silver surrounds, and re purposing the money for something else . BTW the Bronze series makes for a great sounding system.
