I don’t think the shoes matter, especially if you are making sure they are all in the same color. And, um, your brother is the one freaking out about this? That is odd :p

Really??  All of my BMS wore different silver shoes and I can safely say NO ONE NOTICED except me – and that was for about 5 seconds as we were getting ready

meh, i’m having all my bridesmaids choose whatever shoes as long as they’re silver.  i dont see the big deal.  as long as everything looks nice together as a whole, whats the big deal if they’re not exactly the same?  i’m of your mindset, if the color is the same no one is going to really notice that they’re all different.

 

i will say though that i specified “metallic silver” when describing the silver to my girls.  so far the ones that have gotten shoes all match color wise.

Since they are floor length dresses I also agree…let them pick their own shoes. There aren’t many shades of silver either, unless it’s silver vs. pewter and someone thinks pewter is silver?

I have seen mismatched shades of red shoes and it was only slightly distracting. But she was the MOH, so it kinda justified being different also.

OMG!! Your brother– how funny!

Anyway, I think as long as they are some sort of silver, they’ll be fine.

I have issues with one of my toes (my sister calls it my “gimp toe”), but not many people really know about it. So some shoes REALLY hurt my toe by the end of the night and I can feel it for days after. Also, my sister is the same height as her BF so sometimes he gets annoyed when she wears high heels. (Sometimes she doesn’t care what he thinks and wears them anyway- hehe.)

So I think it’s really nice of you to consider your BMs comfort instead of being super picky about looks.

at my friend’s wedding, all of us bridesmaids wore matching gold shoes except ONE bridesmaid who got dyable shoes in Apple (the color of our dresses). Did people notice? Maybe, but in most of the pics of the bridesmaids, you can’t see our feet. It literally does not matter. And keep in mind that if you are making all the girls wear the same shoes, you should buy them. I’ve heard that several times on these boards.  If you just say silver, some girls might already own a pair so saving them some money, and since they are your friends, I think that should be more important than what your mother and brother (uh, really?) think the bridesmaids should wear!

My bridesmaids all wore different gold shoes, and it was fine!  You don’t want a bunch of clones standing up next to you.  I’d give them some direction (color, style) and let them pick out their own.

I don’t think it matters. I have been in friends weddings and they would tell us.. wear any type of gold shoes or wear black peep-toes. It has always turned out looking fine. As long as you tell them the same color (maybe even same style like peep-toe) then i think it will look fine. Kinda allows some personality to show through too! I like when BM have somethings different like shoes and/or hair. You don’t want it too cookie cutter.

I’ve never noticed the shoes on any bridesmaid OR bride for that matter. To me the only thing that matters is that they’re comfortable.

Totally doesn’t matter…just matters if they are comfortable.

My BMs wore SHORT dresses and different shoes.  I really don’t think anyone noticed or cared (especially the bride)!  Wink

Ummm….shoes def dont matter. And as a MOH in a wedding in 2 weeks my bFF changed her mind and now wants us to buy a 75$ pair of silver shoes. I love her, but I think this is so stupid. She got us all matching earings and necklaces, and she wants us to have the same hair.

We are going to look like clones!!!!! lol. I think she forgot that we are own people lol

I am bringing shoes to change into after the ceremony, she wont notice lol

Totally doesn’t matter if they match or not. Tell the shoe-freaks to butt out! =P
