Purple bridesmaid dresses--flower colors?

I was originially planning on (and paid for) white bouquets to go with the purple bridesmaid's dresses.  Unfortunatly, my florist passed away and I have another appt. later today to get a new florist.  I am now rethinking my decision of whtie flowers.  Would red flowers look good with purple dresses? I am also thinking of yellow bouquets. The link to the bridesmaid's dresses is below.  Thanks everyone!

    I think yellow and green go great with purple-- but I do love all white flowers for the BM if the bride is doing a color bouquet. That is what I am doing.

    I'm also loving orange with purple:

    My BMs are also in purple. They will be probably carrying bouquets with white, purple and light yellow. I have also seen light orange and lavender, which looks great, too. I tend to go for the lighter colors for accents since the dresses are dark. If you're looking for something bright, I'd recommend yellow or coral. Yellow is the natural color-wheel complement to purple. I think deep red and blue can get lost against purple.

    I like the idea of pops of color such as a bright spring green or orange against purple.  you could always incorporate white in with these colors to make it a bit more neutral. 

    purple with intense colors looks really fresh and 'brightens' up dark colored dresses.  have fun with it!!!

    You can do pretty much anything with purple.  I've always loved purple and yellow together, but I think green, pink or orange would also be gorgeous.  Browse pictures and see what colour combination really grabs you.  It's really a matter of personal preference.

    My DD's WP wore purple and had honeydew green as her accent color.  The BM flowers were white with the stems wrapped in the honeydew green ribbon.  It was lovely.
