Purple and ????

I'm going to a wedding in May and I have the following:
Warehouse magenta / purple fitted satin dress, sleeveless, deep v neck
Beautiful Karen millen magenta / purple stilettos with a 3d flower type lace embroidery cross the back and side (3d in the sense that it sticks up and out, like the lacy stuff has been seen on not into the shoe)

Ladies, what colour accessories do I wear with this combo? I want a contrasting colour as if I go for more of the same I fear I shall resemble violet Beauregard when she meets her demise wink

I like a clutch and and I will need to out something in my hair - I'm thinking fancy comb

I was thinking teal too.

A friend of mine went to a wedding in a purple dress with yellow accessories. It worked but was very bold.

I think pewter sounds quite nice too.

Pewter or a lighter, silvery colour would look nice I think

Bright pink?

I hate teal - it gives me the rage. I loathe it. It just makes me think of Next soft furnishings.
I am quite liking pewter and I'm loving the yellow suggestion! I am quite a bold person grin

Bright pink too - hmmmmm

Bright red. Honestly.

Cobalt blue or emerald green. I hate pink and purple together. Too Barbie dreamhouse.
