Tomorrow I am going to check out some bridesmaids dresses and I’ve been thinking of having them wear silver or lilac purple , however, I love grey and I feel like everyone is doing the purple dresses/look.
Here is some inspiration of my color theme.
The wedding dress in this inspiration board is my dress, I think silver dresses will look fine since my dress has clear crystals details and very simple dress. Also the dress is in diamond white color and not white.
I was wondering if I do have my bridesmaids wear silver dresses, what color of shoes should they wear? I thought black would be the easiest to find for all of them since 3 of them are different ages and one of them is a junior bridesmaids which cant wear heels. I will have bridesmaids holding purple flower bouquets with some ivory roses. I thought purple shoes would look better with the bouquets, but I know it will be more difficult to find purple shoes for all of them.

It will be trickier to find purple shoes, but I voted for purple just because I don’t see black showing up very much in your inspiration board. However, it could end up being more prominent if your Fiance and GMs end up wearing black – in that case, black could work too!

I love the idea of purple shoes! You could find some links and send them to your bridesmaids if you want them to all wear the same shoes, or you could just tell them to find purple shoes for a mis-matched look.

I say purple. They shouldn’t be too hard to find, all shades of purple are huge for this fall season.

@hyena: Its going to be a mismatched look for sure, bridesmaids will be wearing different styles of dresses but same color and fabric material.
This is more stressful than I thoguht 🙁

I voted black, more for practical reasons. My BMs will wear matching silver dresses, and to keep costs down I’ve asked them to go for black. They can either wear a pair they already own or use it as a reason to buy new ones, ladies choice 🙂
Will you want them to wear all the same style shoes? Maybe they could wear purple jewelry or sashes?

Purple isn’t hard to find. I’ve found shoes before. Google bridal shoes or check out http://www.zappos.com They have a WIDE variety of shoes in many colors. I’m sure you can find some! Good luck pretty color choice…and silver/grey is huge this year and next.
Here’s a pair.
Or these for $52.00….

Of the two choices, I would go with purple. Black would be a little jarring for me in your color scheme/
The other option is to wear gray, charcoal or silver shoes. That way their bouquet will be the colors that pop.

I voted for purple, you don’t see it very often and I think it would look very cute.
Here’s a shoe I found online at DSW:
