What color compliments a deep purple?

I vote silver! I'm doing dark purple, lavender, silver, and white. It all looks great together!

Silver if you want a cooler look, gold if you want warm things up.

I say YELLOW. If it's a spring, summer or even fall wedding yellow will go great with this deep purple. And it's less common than purple and silver, or purple and black. Yellow doesn't have to be an equal color, like 50% 50%... just throw some yellow in where you see fit and it will tone down the purple and add lots of style!

Just my thought. good luck!

i think silver would look great with any shade of purple. I was gonna do lavender and silver, but changed my mind later to lavender, cream, and chocolate.

I would have to vote yellow, almost a gold yellow even. I am using African Violet for my main colour and am accenting it in a nice pale yellow.. the yellow is so delicate that it makes the purple look soo rich.

Definetly purple & gold. Its soo regal. Pretty much any colors look good with that color....greens, yellows, even red can look cool with purple.

It depends on the feel you want.  Purple and silver is very popular, and has a cool, classic feel to it.  Purple and gold is more unique, warm, rich and almost regal.

No matter which one you choose, it'll be lovely.  As an aside, are your rings silver or gold coloured?  You could choose whichever matches your rings.

Dark purple and gold is very royalty and more wintery to me. Brighter lighter purples and silver is more modern and summery. Just my opinion

I think any color that contrasts from deep purple...something on the lighter spectrum.  I'm doing lavender and silver/light grey, and used fushia as a darker color to contrast.  I personally think light blue would go well with deep purple and maybe even light pink, ouuuu OR PEACH?

Purple is a color you can match so easy.  We are doing purple and silver, I love it so easy to match to find stuff.  
Gold as complement makes it look more Royal if your having a really elegant wedding go for Gold.

What a hard choice! Silver would be so classic, but gold.... oh, the possibilities!
I would take into consideration the lighting at your venue, the season, the shade of your dress, and the skin tones of your bridesmaids!
Good luck! I am not sure I could choose!

I'm a silver not a gold girl. I'm going w/ purple & lavender w/ silver  & white hints. And maybe atouch of Black & white damask or flourish fonts.
