So I’m planning on having a wedding for 10k (or lower if possible) and my colors are black, white and eggplant purple. I need some ideas of decoration, centerpieces, if I should have a specific theme (Victorian, etc). I also wanted to know your take on me having my bridesmaids buy a dress they like as long as it is appropriate and in black. I’m not too big of a fan on the whole “same dress for every bridesmaid”.

Your bridesmaids will love you for letting them buy/wear their own choice of black dress. It’s a great idea. You can always bring in the purple in their flowers.

Have you thought about incorporating damask? Personally, I love the look and it would fit with your theme. Or, incorporating black and white polka dots in the decor would be really cute.

Each buying a LBD is a fab idea.
I don’t think a theme is necessary, especially with such striking colors.
There are so many options for centerpieces that it’s hard to just give recommendations. Start with something you and your FI like or your personality and explore from there.
If you love candles, emphasize that. If you’re all about unique flowers find some intersting and different arrangements. Or go for crazy bling with feathers and crystals. Use picture frames or lanterns or anything that strikes your fancy.
