    I LOVE that purple color!  I think it would look flattering with all kinds of complexions too.

    I’d choose black and pair it with a pretty bright bouquet. Purple is not that flattering on some people due to their coloring. Also, just curious but do you have something they can wear over their shoulders if they aren’t comfy with strapless?

    I really love the purple color! But the black could look really great too, especially with bright colored shoes and bouquets!

    If you’re really torn, could you maybe put it to a vote with your bridesmaids?

    I LOVE the purple and think that purple is actually a color that looks really good on all skin tones (especially a deep purple like that!) You can do silver or gold accessories and it would look beautiful. That kind of purple can actually go with a lot of colors. I honestly think they would wear the purple one again too! I mean you really cannot go wrong with either! I think I would ask your bridesmaids which they would prefer!

    I think they’d both look great, but I love the idea of black (more re-wearable) with colorful shoes and bouquets.

    I’m a little partial to the purple as my girls will be wearing a dark eggplant color also. All my girls loved it.. they would wear it again. I agree with the othe ladies, see whichever they prefer.. they are the ones who will re-use the dress but I voted purple.

    I think purple would be most appropriate for  a September garden wedding.
