All I’m asking is the my BM’s wear silver shoes.  I don’t care about heel height or style.  They’re wearing short dresses too.

IMHO, “matchy matchy” shoes are very 80’s.

Since they all have such different needs and wants I would just tell them a color and to let them pick their own shoes.  Nina shoes has a ton of dyeable shoe styles to choose from that would give your girls options.

i think it depends what’s important to you. if you really want matching, make them suck it up and get what you tell them to. (unless the one who doesn’t like to wear heals has a reason, my moh has knee problems so i knew it would be flats for her).

i’m not into matchy so i told them to wear whatever they wanted and they both ended up with gold.

Maybe you can set a few guidelines (say color, strappy or closed toe, etc) and then let them do the rest, that will cover a wide range of heel heights but still have a cohesive look.

I like the champagne color you mentioned before and you could also do nude, bronze or gold shoes.  Although if you do let them pick whatever shoes make sure they know what color you want or you might have everything from champagne to gold to bronze.  I would send all the girls a picture of the color you want so they have something to compare shoes with before they buy.

Brown is neutral so champagne works, but blue or pink or most pale colors would look pretty too, plus be cool with your ivory dress. What other colors are in your scheme? As with dresses, if they buy the same color in the same brand they can pick a style that suits them.
