I was thinking of doing my Silver bridesmaid dresses. My colors and Ivory, purple, and silver. I wanted silver because it’s different. And the men prefer to wear silver. But since they want silver shoes I feel like their is not enough color. They plan on doing purple jewelry, maybe a hair flower.
Would a purple sash on a silver dress look tacky? Is all silver okay? Should I just do purple dress, silver shoes?

I’m doing something similar to you. My colors are silver, pinks (all different shades), and ivory. I’ve decided to put my girls in charcoal grey dresses, and I might have my Maid/Matron of Honor wear a pink sash with her dress. I don’t think a purple sash on a silver dress would look “tacky” at all. I also think all silver is fine too. I’m having them wear their charcoal grey dresses and a pink flower in their hair. I also might ask them to buy a pair of pink shoes if i can find an inexpensive pair. I don’t know if this helps at all, but I think you’ll be safe doing any of the combinations you mentioned!

I’m not a fan of solid color dresses with contrasting sashes (I wouldn’t call them tacky; they’re just very… bridesmaidy) so I’d go with purple dresses and silver shoes. I’m assuming that by silver dresses you’re talking about a shiny satin fabric, which can be super unflattering.

It might be easier to find purple dresses than it is to find silver ones. I’d look around a bit first and make sure that you can find bm dresses in that colour before choosing it. Just to be sure.

Barijay has a nice color silver, and they offer it in both chiffon and satin
Alfred Angelo has quite a few two tone dresses that I think are really nice, but they only offer charcoal, not silver.

I to am a little leary of 2-tone dresses-they are really hard to wear again. Those Bari Jay/AA dresses could easily be worn as a cocktail dress again.
I agree with other posters that silver fabric might be really hard to pull off-maybe the purple dress with silver shoes? And some killer loud silver jewelery?
