    I think the pearls will compliment the dress nicely. It is a very simple dress, so you really couldn’t go wrong with a necklace with a bit more of a statement. I would suggest, however, to have your bridesmaids wear their hair in updos if you would like a dressier look. Hope this helps!

    Are the groomsmen wearing black or grey? I think the silver necklace could be ok if the guys are in grey suits. But I think regular pearls would look fine even if they had silver shoes, everything does not have to be matchy matchy, plus they have long dresses. Why do they have to wear silver shoes? What about a nude shoe? I think you are kind overthinking all of this.

    I love multistrand pearls, and the grey pearls are lovely! I think it’ll look really sharp with that shade of plum.

    My 4 girls had plum dresses. They were different dress styles, just same color. I allowed them to wear any silver heels because their dresses were long. And only two wore silver necklaces because of the neckline of their dress. It would not have looked right with pearl or ivory in my opinion. Gray or silver always looks best with plum/purple in my opinion. That’s qwhy my colors were plum and gray/silver. The guys suits were grey. Wish I could post a pic but I am on my Ipad and they are stored on my Mac. I will try to do it later if I remember!

    livcurious:  Too funny! We are thinking along the same lines! My MOH is in this exact dress and my BMs are in the same dress but victorian lilac and silver is an accent color for my wedding so one of the BMs mentioned wearing silver pearls. I told them to choose whatever they wanted for a necklace as long as it was silver or pearls. My BM found a pretty chunky necklace in silver pearls. Unfortunately I think they all found a cheap set of ivory pearls to wear instead, but I would have loved the combo. I say it’s not weird at all and go for it!
