So I have a bit of a dilemma. … I pictured myself as this free thinking whatever bride. I wanted my bridesmaids (I only have two) to wear the same casual dress and accessorize it however they thought would suit them the best. This to me meant their jewellery and shoes would be different. I love this idea but I also love the idea of gifting their jewellery to them.
The problem lies in that I also made them brooch bouquets and any real statement jewellery will be too much I think. The brooches are all gray and white pearl and I like the idea of two strings of pearls , one white one gray, intertwined together. I also found gorgeous braclets they both will love. So now the only thing different would be their shoes. ….will this be weird or will no one notice their shoes. Should I ask them to wear the same color shoe? I don’t want them to have to buy shoes they wont wear again. This is a very rustic casual wedding on grass so heels are an issue.

No one is going to notice their shoes. Just let them wear whatever shoes they want

I had to buy a certain color shoe for a wedding, and I never wore it again, so I’m not going that route with my BMs. I don’t think people will notice, unless someone is wearing a really bright, unmatching color.

I think it’s OK to ask them to get a similar color shoe. My female friends and I borrow each other’s shoes whenever we need to be in a wedding. Someone always has a silver or gold pair in their closet.

No one will look, notice or care.

The majority of people won’t notice the shoe if they are same color family and if they have long dresses. My girls have long dresses, but I’m paying four pairs of shoes for them, my other bridesmaid isn’t into high heels so I bought her a pair of flats.

I had to buy a particular pair of shoes for my cousin’s wedding. It really kind of pissed me off because her thing was she wanted “gold glitter” shoes…well I already had a nice pair but she decided that they didn’t match because they weren’t pumps. So now I have a pair of shoes I probably won’t ever wear again…not to mention, our dresses were long and no one ever saw our shoes.
If you want them to be semi matching, just tell them to wear a specific color but leave the rest up to them. (I’m asking mine to wear any pair of black shoes)

@IzzyBear: I had to do that too and we ended up wearing them for not even 2 min. Which is why I wanted them to do their own thing.
Admitedly Im no fashionista and don’t care about their shoes but didnt want to commit a faupax!
Thanks for the help bees! The dresses are short and neither girl wants to wear black shoes so evenif one goes nude and the gray itll still be great!I
