I think a royal purple would be with chocolate brown if you added an orange or ivory.  Something that would balance the two darker colors would be really beautiful for fall as well.

I agree that you need a bright color to offset the dark colors.  Purple and brown are unique and I think orange will make everything pop.  And… since you’re having an October wedding, orange would be perfect!

The ladies could wear the purple dress you like and carry bouquets that are heavy with orange.  I think an orange belt or shawl/wrap with the dresses would make the color combo more “together”.  Maybe you could have the guys wear brown suits and have boutinniere’s that are purple/orange using ribbons,flowers and or leaves.  

I think ivory would match nicely but it would be boring.  If you don’t care for orange, maybe anothe bright fall color like yellow or a form of red would work.  I like hotwing’s suggestion of orange the best though.   

Do you want to post a pic of the purple dress you like so we can see it?

I completely agree that a bright color would really add to the purple and brown.  If you don’t like orange, I think a nice lime green would look great too!
