Dark Purple BM Dresses?

My BM dresses are dark purple - I was thinking shiny silver shoes but some of the girls are saying they should wear more of a pewter or gunmetal silver colour. I'm not so sure - my thought was the shiny silver would make the dark/matte colour of the dress 'pop'. My wedding is in June.


Thoughts?

I'm doing dark purple and pewter but I think silver works too. I'm getting married in Sept. - silver may work better for June. Don't forget it's your day, doesn't matter what anyone else thinks!

are your BM dresses long or short? If theyre long it doesn't matter much. If they're short.. I do think they would pop better against silver for a June wedding

My BMs' dresses were dark purple and they all wore silver shoes.  I think it's a good combo.  A pewter satin shoe will probably look really elegant too though.  Just depends on what you prefer.

Our colors are violet and pewter but my bridesmaids have their choice of shoes, any strapy shoes in the gray color range so anything from silver to pweter.  I think they all look great

I have 4 shades of purple (mostly darker purples) and they are going with a gunmetal silver.  not bright silver (too promish) but more darker grey-ish!  I think it looks nice!  And all the BM's agreed they would probably never wear a silver colored shoe again but they would wear a grey heel again!

i think silver or pewter will look good. i have some "pewter" shoes but they really are more silver to me. i think the pewter is more modern and a dark purple dress will pop whether the shoe is silver or pewter.

I think silver would go well with purple.

I asked my BM's to wear silver shoes as well.  I let them pick whatever style they wanted.
