I think the flats you picked would be great! I wouldn’t worry about it clashing with the gray, I doubt most people would think that.

I’m a huge fan of nude pumps. To me, nude goes with everything because, well, it’s the color of skin. it doesn’t hurt that most girls typically have a pair already and I’m a huge advocate of not making girls but shoes just for seones wedding.

You can do sandals, flats, heels,wedges- whatever you prefer in September.

If they are going to be walking on grass wedges or flats would be easier.

For color I would probably choose pewter or silver to coordinate with the men, or nude shoes as a neutral choice.

very low wedge- almost a flat


pewter wedge shoes-womens sam libby ilana pointed toe sliver wedge flat


vpewter wedge shoes-bandolino tufflove


pewter wedge shoes-9 co orlando wedge sandals


pewter strappy sandals-franco sarto abby sandal


pewter strappy sandals-impo gardenia wedge sandal

My girls wore silver heels of their choosing with their dress (my bridesmaids wore plum too)

My automatic thought was a toned-down silver–flats or strappy heels.  The best gift I ever got as a bridesmaid was a real pair of shoes I could wear for years to come and that went with nearly everything!

Agree with silver/grey or nude.  We’re doing eggplant dresses with nude heels picked by each bridesmaid.

I would do pewter or black shoes. It would match the jewelry and it would make the boys.

Love the flats! My MOH is in plum, and the BMs in victorian lilac – I told them to pick any silver shoe they wanted. So my choice would be silver. However, that is an accent color of mine, so it fits.
