I see no problem with that at all. Some people feel that gifts can’t include things to be worn on the wedding day, but I see no problem with it and would glady welcome that as a gift.

What about gifting them a gift certificate or gift card for their favorite shoe store? Or maybe a Visa gift card (less restrictive) in a shoe-themed gift card holder with a fun poem or something. I think gifting them part of their wedding attire is always a great idea, but this way they wouldn’t feel like they needed to get approval for their shoes, you’d be able to budget a specific amount, etc.

I know if someone was offering to buy me something for an event, I’d be super-self-conscious about not taking advantage of them and maybe choose something more reasonable rather than getting what I really wanted. With a gift card I’d have the option of getting what I wanted and, if it’s more than the giver planned to spend, paying the difference with no guilt or weird feelings.

If that makes any sense 🙂

@thirdtimebride:  I think that’s a fantastic idea – super considerate of your BMs, their preferences, and their budgets!

Sure… but it all depends on the delivery.

It coud be a great gift. Just make sure you get them shoes they like and will wear again.

Just a thought, but one of my favorite bridesmaids gifts was a Coach clutch that I received. The bride picked out a clutch for each girl (we each got something different – same style, different colors/prints) that we could use the day of and after. I use that clutch ALL the time…

I thought I’d add my two cents just in case you were thinking about alternatives to shoes!Smile

For people who are worried about the girls picking shoes that might be more reasonable, you could always just ask them to figure out what shoes they want but e-mail you before they buy them to check that it’s ok. Then you can buy the shoes and surprise them!
