My bridesmaid dresses were more of a plum color. But I just told them to get black shoes. I thought everyone has black heels, but it turns out that only two of them has a pair they wanted to wear and the outher 4 went out and bought new ones.

What’s not classy about dyeing the shoes to match the dress?

If you’re so against dark purple shoes, then the only viable option left is black.

@Queena3378:  I’d say black or nude depending on your other colors.  Pewter might be hard to find/match if you are planning on telling the girls what color to pick and letting them shop for themselves.

If the purple has warmth to it I generally prefer gold. 

If it has cooler tones then silver would work…but I wouldn’t recommend telling them to buy “pewter silver”…I mean, what is that???  If you told them to go for that color I can almost guarantee you will end up with some lighter silver shoes and some darker silver shoes.  Dark silver might be a better description.

If you want a specific color the only way to do it would be to pick the shoes and have them buy those exact ones that are pewter.

Since you posted a picture…I think darker silver/pewter would look nice.  Or nude would look good.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are Egglplant and we are doing silver shoes – Any style they like as long as they are silver or pewter/grey metallic, but silver is most common and easy to find!

Edit: I considered Nude also istead of Silver, but one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man pointed out that Silver is more fun and party-like so I went with that 🙂

+1. Silver would look beautiful with that vibrant, lavender-colored dress!

I had purple Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and they all wore silver shoes. Looks great!
