    This was a tough one for me too but i went with the grey silver! My florist actually suggested the silver because then the purple flowers would stand out more. Here is a pic of my Bridesmaid or Best Man. It was hard to find shoes tho.

    Purple IMO…it pops and is flattering on most all skin types and hair colors.

    I really like that color of grey you found. It’s like a dark metallic grey. I think it’s like a black and most color flowers would go well with it.

    I say purple because it’s timeless. After all, it is the color of royalty!!!!!

    I’m for purple too – a most flattering color.

    I actually like the gray. I agree the purple flowers will pop. Otherwise, you’d need to pick a third color for flowers since purple dresses and purple flowers would be too much. You could do the plum purple dresses with lavender colored flowers though or vice versa. I feel like sooo many people use purple, but that’s just me. 🙂

    I had a tough choice between purple and gray too. I didn’t want purple because of the 2 weddings I’ve been to recently, both had purple BMs dresses. I wanted to do something different. I narrowed it down to either gray or black. Here is a picture of one of my BMs in her dress. Please excused the wrinkles. We just picked them up :p

    I like the dresses that are in a steel gray color!  Way more flower options than with purple.  However I love the style of the purple dress :o)

    Before clicking on this I thought… purple, no contest.  But once I saw them, I liked the grey dresses so much more!  They’re gorgeous! I also like your idea about having contrasting bouquets.  Much easier with the grey dress.

    I like the grey one, it’s more neutral and universally flattering than purple! Plus, like you said, the purple flowers will pop!

    Why would you want grey flowers? I think the gray looks better. I like purple don’t get me wrong. But more of a lilac/lavender purple than deep purple. I love the grey dress but not so crazy about the material though. Love the color.

    Definitely the grey! It’s a flattering color and more timeless, and the flowers will really pop.

    I’m not sold on the big poofy bubble hem of that grey dress you posted, though. I like the actual bridesmaid dresses the PP showed a little better. (That’s my unsolicited opinion on that! 🙂 )
