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?
