Champagne or Purple BM dresses?!?!?!

Hey girls. My wedding colors are champagne and purple, but I can't decide on the color for the BM dresses. My wedding dress is ivory and a few people have told me they think they will blend in with me too much or worse yet, clash! Don't want that. What do you think? Have you seen weddings with ivory wedding dress and champagne BM dress

that worked?

    I think purple will be a much more flattering color on most skintones than champagne.  Also, with the sharp contrast between the purple and your ivory dress, you will really 'pop' in the pictures (I've heard a few photographers say that bridesmaid dress color should really contrast with the bride's dress color).

    Although champagne and ivory are neutrals and will therefore NEVER clash with ANYTHING (whoever told you otherwise needs some What Not to Wear, stat), I also vote for purple because it's what I'd rather wear.

    Could you do champagne on the groomsmen's vests/ties/cummerbunds? I agree with PP's about purple dress- - stunning!

    I vote for purple. Perhaps I am a little bias bc my BM's wore purple dresses and it is also my favorite color.

    Definitely purple.  Much more figure flattering.
