I’ve worn that colour with black shoes twice as a bridesmaid and it worked well! I have seen it at other weddings as well and it looked nice. If the dresses are floor length the shoes probably will not be visible anyways!


Those shoes are pretty and you will be able to wear them with other outfits!

Yeah, I think black is the best way to go with shoes. That way you can wear them more than once.

Before reading through your post entirely, I was going to suggest black shoes. Since the dresses are long, most likely you won’t see them anyway. And they look like you can wear them again and again which is definitely a plus in my book!

I am doing plum dresses with black shoes.

I don’t have a problem with the black shoes, however they do look a bit clunky to go with a bridesmaid dress.

That said, barely anyone will notice your feet and the shoes are cute to wear later on.

I say go with them!

I think black shoes go great with a plum dress

Since the dresses are long, have you thought about just letting everyone pick their own shoes? (I know the bride has to make the final decision, so has she thought about it?) It seems like it would be easier just to let it go instead of fighting the picky bridesmaid.

Honestly I don’t think the discussion even needs to be happening. The bride made her choice and it’s her day. I say tell the other bm to piped down and don’t even bring it up to the bride.
