    I think it’s close enough for sure.

    If you are super super concerned, you can always get a dyable pair of shoes and dye them to the color of your bm dresses.

    I honestly don’t think it’ll really matter or anyone will be able to tell!

    That looks REALLY close to me! It’d be hard to find much of a better match unless it was from the same company. It will never look exactly right when they’re on top of each other like that, but I bet if you put the shoes down and put the swatch a few feet away it will be hard to tell the difference.

    They look super close to me!  Although you can see a slight difference when they are on eachother like in the pic, your shoes won’t ever be that close to a BM dress.  I don’t think it wil be noticable at all!

    It’s very close. I think when they aren’t right next to each other, but with you next to your bridesmaids, they will look the same. But I also think it would look good if you did a lighter purple, that’s another option if you are worried.

    @LOLgirl:  I think it’ll be perfect!  I did that same thing too!

    I think they look pretty close, and depending on the lighting on the day of/the room your in for pictures/etc, they will match well! 

    I did the same idea but opposite lol, I found my shoes first (without trying to) and have been using them to match the BM dresses. It’s never going to be an exact match!

    Here are mine.  I wanted more of the mismatched color scheme though so I wasn’t TOO worried about it being 100% a match, even though my shoes did match some of their dresses pretty close.
