I think purple dresses also in satin would look lovely. Personally I don’t think purple and yellow go well. But, I’m really not a fan of yellow.

I think purple and yellow would look nice with it. I have a satin dress as well and am wearing a yellow (gasp) necklace. Despite people telling me it won’t work. Rock what you like!

Your dress is gorgeous.  Don’t regret your choice!  That being said, I agree with the PP – purple satin dresses would look lovely, but I’d stay away from yellow.

Your dress is beautiful, don’t have any regrets about the color or the fabric. I personally think that when it comes to satin, dark colors look really nice. Black, navy, magenta or dark purple would all look really pretty… I think a super bright blue or green or yellow combined with that super shiny fabric might be too much. I am having this same problem and once I found a couple dresses I like I went to a store that carried that designer so that I could actually see the material and color in person… it makes a huge difference!

I had a shiny satin dress!! I used David Bridal’s Sangria color and then we used a metallic gold to accent it.  I also snuck pink flowers here and there.  Feel free to stalk my recaps 🙂

Maybe a garnet/ruby and purple. Jewel tones!

So my best friend actually had that exact dress (Brenda?) LOL

Anyways, she had TWO weddings with it.  The one in teh states she did BRIGHT Yellow and Pink and the one in Spain had light green and white (more neutral).

Here’s from her photographer’s facebook page, you can scroll thru other pics to see how she looked in the dress (sometimes its easier to see it on a real person!)

And Pics with the more neutral colors (once again, this is the photographer’s facebook page, so just scroll thru to see– there are only a few and everything is in Spanish LOL):
