I think I might have inadvertantly made things messy in the “bridesmaid shoes department”. They are wearing simple navy dresses and mismatched pearl accessories. The bouquets will have a handtied wildflower look. Since I really don’t care what they wear, I left it up to them to decide what they wanted to do for shoes. I was assuming they would sort of make a plan amungst themselves (my bad). I didn’t care what colour, style, fabric, they decided or whether they matched or not. Two of the girls chose pairs of wicker wedges (one is going with floral on navy fabric and the other slate and silver patterned fabric). Then a third girl was looking at a pair of hot pink patent heals (but hasn’t bought them yet). I’m beginning to think the shoe situation is going to look a bit scizophrenic. What do you think I should do? Does it matter? It seems a bit late to change plans too much since the “wedge girls” have already bought something.
As always – thanks for your help!

Let it go–they have co-ordinating dresses and jewelery. Let the shoes be fun, and they won’t be in that many pictures, any way!

@BrandNewBride: Awesome! Thanks – this was my first instinct!

@bee_happy: I’m a very matchy-matchy person so I’d ask the other girls to get something that coordinates with the first two…. not necessarily wicker wedges, but at least a similar style/color/overall look. defo not the pink ones!!

@AllieBee12: I agree. I told my girls to all get silver shoes.

@bee_happy: No one cares about the bridesmaids shoes. Can you tell me anything about any bridesmaid shoes from any wedding you went to as a guest?

@andielovesj: The last one I went to they were all wearing nude shoes. 🙂
In all seriousness I only remember this because their whole ensemble looked freaking fantastic-coralish dresses, nude shoes, and different gold statement necklaces. Other than that I can’t remember a single bridesmaid shoe. I barely can remember the ones I wore in the wedding I was in, in September. Just let them choose whatever they like. It could actually make for a cool picture. In the end everyone is going to be mostly looking at you.

@bee_happy: My girls are all wear ring different dresses and different shoes. I like the fact that they can be original to some extent, and be happy and comfortable in what they’re wearing. Just let them do their own thing.

I am having my girls wear flats. I would feel terrible having them in heels. Im even wearing flats!
I just picked ones that were in my color, cheap and told them “get it, these are what I am set on.”
These are the flats. They sparkel a lot more in person.
