    I think white flowers would be really lovely with eggplant dresses.

    In fact, that's I exactly what I am hoping to do for my wedding (still almost a year away).  Did you have trouble finding eggplant dresses?  I've been casually looking at bridesmaids dresses and haven't been seeing much of the really dark purple that I have in mind.

    Sarah, try DB lapis.  I had the same problem, but I really like the shade of purple that they are. 

    As for the flowers, I think that would be really pretty.  We were going to do white roses with purple ribbon, but apparently my dad has taken a recent interest in the bridesmaid bouquets, so we're doing (on his request) a mix of purple and white flowers.

    I think that sounds very classy, although I am partial to white roses for weddings.

    The white will pop against the eggplant really nicely.

    Is it just me or are the colors purple, white, and black super popular right now?

    Yeah, I agree, they totally are popular.  I went with purple because it's been my favorite color since I can remember (one of my childhood friends has a very embarassing video of me proclaiming my love of my purple popcicle atop her jungle gym...I hope it doesn't surface if I ever try to run for office).  I guess I just lucked out this year being trendy and all...

    I'm having eggplant dresses also.  My bridesmaids are going to have pink, ivory, and a light purple.  I wanted them to pop!

    We did eggplant dresses, (if you're looking for a dark purple, I was very happy with the one from belsoie, part of jasmine and b2), and ended up going with green, light purple and white for the bridesmaids.
