Silver would look lovely with the purple and that brooch.

MrsPiggles:  I personally would like a metallic color in the silver to gold family, but black would definitely look fine too and would prevent them from having to buy a pair just for the wedding. Pretty dress choice! 

ETA: Also, since the dress is full length you really won’t see the shoes that much — which makes leaning toward a color they likely have (like black) more convenient and helpful to the BMs.

I vote for black. They would look classic with the dress, and it would almost surely mean the girls wouldn’t have to purchase a new pair of shoes for the wedding. 

A lot of girls still don’t have metallic shoes, but if your girls all do, then that issue is moot – but don’t just assume they have them. I was in a wedding recently where the bride insisted that we where a certain color of metallic shoes and was just *shocked* that not.a.single.bridesmaid owned shoes like that. Every single one of had to buy a brand new pair of shoes (that we will never wear again) and we weren’t thrilled.

Since the dress is long, no one will see the shoes anyway, so I really wouldn’t stress about it.
